6 Natural Haircare Tips You HAVE To Try This Spring

Spring is the ideal time to try and revitalise your hair and beauty regime – and this year, why not think about trying out some completely natural or home-made ideas for customised products that do the job, for very little money! We think that sounds like a winner.

  1. Coconut oil hair mask

    Instead of paying a fortune for a branded deep conditioner, buy a jar of virgin coconut oil from the supermarket. Warm 1 tablespoon full in your hands and spread it from roots to ends on your hair. Wrap your hair in clingfilm and leave it for as long as you can stand it (overnight works best, but anything up to an hour is fine). Simply wet your hair and shampoo out, for the sofest, shiniest locks EVER.

  2. Rhassoul Clay Wash

This mud coloured powder can be bought very cheaply and is ideal for a thoroughly conditioning hair wash. You simply mix it with a little water and work it into the hair, leave for a moment and rinse out. It won’t foam, but your hair will be left super clean, shiny and you won’t be using any harsh chemicals. It is very economical to buy too!

3. Dye your hair with henna

If you’re looking for an alternative to shop bought box dye, henna might be the answer. It is a crushed leaf you mix with warm water or lemon juice to create a vibrant red stain which will tint hair a beautiful shade of red, if you’re blonde or auburn – and give red highlights if you’re dark brown. It takes time to mix and apply, but the results are 100% worth it. Be sure to only ever buy Body Art Quality henna from a reputable stockist.

4. Treat your curls with Amla

Mixed up in the same way as Henna, Amla is a conditioning powder which can really benefit curly hair as a deep conditioner. Use it once every 6 weeks, to maintain bounce and lustre. If you’re blonde, it will also help to brighten and maintain your colour too – without using any harsh chemicals!

5. Use Argan oil as a styling product

Argan oil is a deeply conditioning product than can be used as a styling tool to help tame flyaway, frizzy hair and split ends. Use a tiny drop after a blow dry to seal the hair shaft and to add shine. It can also be used as a deep conditioning mask too, in the same way as the coconut oil!

6. The No Poo Method

There are many people out there going crazy for something called the No Poo method at the moment – and no, it isn’t as scary as it sounds! Basically, it is finding a way to wash your hair without using bottled shampoo from the supermarket, that can be laden with harsh detergent. One way is to try the Rhassoul clay mentioned above. Another is to try soap nuts. These can be bought online very cheaply. All you need to do is simmer them in a muslin cloth, in a pan containing 2 or 3 cups of water. You then squeeze the soap nuts in the cloth until a foamy liquid comes out. Collect this liquid in a jar, allow it to cool and store it in the fridge. When you wash your hair, wet it and use this mixture in place of shampoo, in the normal way. Your hair will be squeaky clean and super soft.
