Homemade Hair Growth Treatments – Part 2

11. Henna & Egg Shampoo
This is effective for hair growth & care. You’ll need natural henna powder, an egg, half a cup of lemon juice & a cup of water. Mix the henna, egg & water together until it has formed a paste & let it stand for an hour. Add lemon juice & blend again until the mixture is smooth. Apply the paste on your scalp & hair from root to tips. Leave it in for about 2 hrs or until completely dry or even through the night. Rinse with cool or lukewarm water & gently work the mixture out of your hair. Use once a month.

12. Oatmeal Hair Mask
Get half a cup of oats or more(depending on the length and thickness of your hair), mix it with 1-2 tbsp of almond oil & a quarter to half a cup of milk. Make sure your hair is tangle free & dry & apply the hair mask from root to tip. Leave it in for 15-20 mins & then rinse with warm water before shampooing. Use once a week.

13. Egg & Yogurt Mask
You need 1 egg, a quarter cup plain yogurt & a quarter cup mayo. First beat the egg until it looks foaming, add in the yogurt & mayo until the mask is smooth. Massage it into your scalp & hair, making sure every inch is covered. Use a plastic bag or shower cap to keep it from dripping & leave the mask in for an hour. Rinse with cool water & a very mild shampoo. Use it once a week.

14. Onion & Honey Treatment
This is helpful if your hair is thinning or you’re losing it. Juice one small onion & add a bit of honey. Apply the mixture to all of your head or just the spots where hair looks thin. Leave it overnight & avoid covering it(you can cover your pillow) & shampoo out the next morning. Use at least once a week.

15. Coconut Oil & Lemon Juice
This doesn’t just help strengthen your hair for fast growth but gets rid of dandruff quickly. Just mix one part lemon juice with two parts coconut oil & massage it into your scalp. Leave it in from 4hrs to overnight & gently rinse out with cool water the next morning. Use this once a week.

16. Garlic & Chamomile Tea Mask
This one is complicated but only because it has many ingredients. You need 1 tbsp of garlic juice, 3 tbsp chamomile tea(or a tea bag), 1 tbsp aloe vera gel, 1 tbsp honey, 3 cups of water & 1 egg yolk. Mix the garlic juice with the honey & place it in your fridge. Boil your water & tea for about 30mins, stirring now and then. While that cools, take your juice/honey mixture & stir in the egg yolk & aloe vera gel. Massage the mask into your scalp down to the ends of your hair & leave it for 20 mins. Wash it out with a gentle shampoo. After that rinse your hair with the chamomile & let it stay in. If you have the stamina for this process you could do it once each week.

17. Vitamin E Treatment
This one is easy if you have all the ingredients together. Have a bottle handy & combine a quarter cup of vitamin E oil & a quarter cup of jojoba oil. You can buy vitamin E capsules & either break them, press them or piece them to get the oil. Then add 15 drops peppermint essential oil & 15 drops rosemary essential oil. Cap the bottle & shake the mixture well. Apply this treatment to your scalp every night.

18. Essential Oils Treatment
This requires only essential oils. Mix 2 drops thyme, 3 drops rosemary, 2 drops cedar, 28mls grape seed & a tbsp jojoba oil in a tight bottle or bowl for storage & later use. Massage this mixture into your scalp every night.

19. Caffeine Shampoo
This requires caffeine powder. You mix 4 tsp into 230ml shampoo. You can also mix he caffeine powder in a spray bottle with 230ml water & spritz it on your hair 10-15 mins before showering. Don’t use this treatment more than once a day & if you start getting headaches, you’re using too much shampoo or spritz.

20. Mayo Massage
All you need is mayo & it doesn’t matter what kind. Make sure your hair is damp – not soaking wet – with warm water & basically rub the mayo into your scalp & down to the ends of your hair. Use as much or as little as you want. Cover with a shower cap or plastic bag to trap heat. Let it set for 20 mins and then wash out with a gentle shampoo or shampoo that has been diluted. Use once a week for dry, over-processed hair, twice a week for normal hair & once a month if you have oily hair.
