The bliss of having smooth hair simply cannot be matched. Very few people in the world know what it is like to have smooth hair with the perfect texture. The others can only wish that their hair was as velvety, soft and silky as that of the models that appear in hair care product commercials. The average person in America does not have smooth hair. This makes many people believe that it is beyond the realm of possibility to have hair as smooth as the ones shown in commercials unless you are genetically predisposed to have spectacular hair. This is not true at all. The reason why people give up on the notion of obtaining smooth hair is because they are not yet willing to work hard enough to make their hair smooth.
If you sit at home all day and complain about your frizzy, dry and coarse hair that keeps falling off the scalp, then you wouldn’t be doing yourself any favours. You need to engage in research and learn more about what can be done to improve the texture of one’s hair. Once you have conducted research, you should either get ready to spend money on high end hair care products or buy some simple natural ingredients that can restore the lost smoothness of your hair.
If you are simply not sure of what to do, then follow the tips mentioned below. Making use of the remedies in this list can make a huge difference in the quality of your hair.
1) Mayonnaise Mask
For most of, mayonnaise is just another dairy item that gets spread over bread like butter. But people who have expertise in hair care know that this dairy item can be invaluable for someone who is struggling with dry, coarse hair. Mayonnaise can be turned into a hair mask that serves as a deep conditioning treatment. This treatment or remedy should be applied at least once a week. The reason why mayonnaise is used is because it is a very rich source of L-cysteine. For those of you who are not aware of what L-cysteine is, it is basically a form of amino acid that can also act as a very potent antioxidant. This amino acid is usually sourced from eggs. Regular use of the mayonnaise mask will stimulate the growth of healthier and smoother hair.
This remedy is quite easy to prepare. You will require a cup of mayonnaise and two teaspoons of pure, unadulterated avocado paste. These two separate ingredients should be mixed thoroughly till they form a consistent blend. Apply the mixture directly to your hair, starting with the roots. This is the part of the hair that has sustained the most damage. Smear the mixture across the length of the hair strand till it reaches the crown. After you are done, cover your hair with a shower cap for approximately 60 minutes. Once the hour passes by, you can rinse off the mixture with cold water and shampoo.
2) Banana Pack
You may have heard of an egg pack being useful in enhancing the growth of the hair and improving its texture, but have you heard of a banana pack that can perform the same function? Bananas are the forgotten ingredients of natural hair care. They are not just good for your body, they are great for your hair as well. Banana contains a number of sugars such as fructose, glucose and sucrose that energize the body and keep your hair well moisturized. In addition to providing moisture, bananas can reduce the frizz in your hair and prevent your scalp from becoming dry, flaky and itchy. The benefits of banana are accentuated when it is combined with yogurt.
Creating the banana pack requires you to mash 1 ripe banana and mix it with 2 teaspoons of yogurt. In the next step, you should place the mixture inside a blender so that a smooth paste is formed with no floating chunks of banana. Apply the mixture on your hair in the same way that you applied mayonnaise hair mask. The only difference is that you don’t have to wait for 60 minutes. You can rinse off the mixture with shampoo after 45 minutes have passed by.
3) Vinegar Rinse
Perhaps the simplest way to attain smooth hair is by giving it a rinse with vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is an age old remedy for dry, brittle and frizzy hair. You can definitely count on this ingredient to give your hair a wonderful texture.
Fill up a quarter of a cup with vinegar. Dilute the vinegar by adding water to fill up the remaining volume of the cup. The apple cider vinegar rinse should be used as a final rinse after you have washed your hair in the shower.
