Imagine you’ve run out of shampoo. Do you run to the nearest store? Or do you take the opportunity to experiment with natural substitutes that are free from potentially harmful chemicals? Well, we’ll probably take option No.1 in most cases; but there are actually plenty of natural ingredients that can keep your hair clean and shiny…
Eggs: Mix two or three eggs in a bowl and use it to wash your hair. It’ll even foam up. If you want to follow it up with a 100% natural conditioner as well, mix 3 table spoons of vinegar with a liter of water, and add just a few drops of aromatic oil.
Baking soda and apple cider vinegar: For the first step to this hair treatment option, mix one tablespoon of baking soda and a little bit of water. Massage the resulting paste through your hair and scalp, then rinse it off with water. For step two, mix one table spoon of apple cider vinegar with a cup of water, and use it to rinse your hair again. One final note: if your hair is dry, add a bit of honey to the baking soda mixture.
Coconut oil: No fancy tricks to this one—just massage the oil onto your scalp and hair, then rinse it thoroughly to get rid of any residues.
Baby talc: This last one falls strictly into the ‘emergency’ category. Simply apply the powder on the roots of your hair (using a big makeup brush can make the task a bit easier), then brush your hair like usual. If done right, your hair will feel and look fresh.
