8 hair care ingredients you can find in your kitchen

1. Banana

There is no doubt that bananas are good for your hair. The silica in bananas helps your body make collagen and makes your hair thicker and stronger. Besides having antimicrobial properties, bananas are great for healing dry, flaky skin. A banana hair mask can work wonders for people who suffer from constant dandruff. You just need to mash the bananas and apply them on your hair [1].

2. Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise strengthens and adds shine to your hair when you use it as a hair mask. Oils and eggs are key ingredients in hair masks. Mayonnaise is high in protein, so it can thicken and strengthen your hair follicles. Try organic mayonnaise instead of packages filled with preservatives – it will work better and faster [2].

3. Egg

Topical application of egg yolks can help nourish your hair roots. As a result, the new hair will be less prone to breakage and will grow stronger and fuller. Protein is always good for healthy hair growth.

4. Olive oil

To get long and silky hair, you need to use olive oil. First, apply lukewarm olive oil to your scalp and hair. After that, gently massage the oil into your hair and cover it with a warm towel. Finish with conditioner after washing your hair with a mild sulfate-free shampoo [3].

5. Milk

A combination of lipids and proteins in milk helps strengthen hair, and calcium promotes hair growth. Additionally, several nutrients in milk are good for hair, including vitamin A, potassium, vitamin B6, and biotin. Prepare your hair mask by applying undiluted milk to your hair. Let sit for an hour, then rinse for shiny, healthy-looking hair [4].

6. Tea water

Tea water can help reverse damage caused by buildup, absorb nourishing vitamins and minerals, and protect your hair from UV rays that can cause further damage. Additionally, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, the tea soothes the scalp and helps fight inflammation and irritation. It is also ideal for people suffering from itchy scalp and dandruff, as the ingredients in the tea can slough off dead skin cells. [5].

7. Fenugreek

Fenugreek seeds are one of the oldest Indian hair remedies for silky hair. In addition to preventing dandruff and hair loss, fenugreek seeds strengthen hair to make it silky and shiny by providing vitamin C, iron, protein and potassium. [6].

You just need 1/4 cup of fenugreek seeds and a cup of water. Soak the seeds in water overnight so that they absorb all the water and expand. In the morning, mix the seeds with a little water that they have soaked to obtain a smooth and homogeneous texture. Apply this paste on your scalp and hair. Rinse out with shampoo and conditioner after 30 minutes.

8. Beer

Nowadays you can also buy beer shampoo from many brands. That’s because there are plenty of minerals in beer, including copper, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, and antioxidants from yeast, hops, and malt that help promote hair growth. [7][8].
