Monsoon is here, and while we can finally enjoy the pleasant weather, the harsh reality of the risk of split ends remains true for your hair. The reason for these hair troubles is the high humidity level, which causes the hair cuticles to become dry and hence, you experience split ends.
To nourish your hair, a hair mask made of natural ingredients may just do the trick, as you can customise it as per your requirements, without risking the damage caused by chemicals. The scalp needs to be strengthened, along with reducing oxidative stress, which can make your hair look brittle and cause split ends. To your rescue, the two ingredients that can help you get rid of dry, damaged hair, and split ends, are eggs and flax seeds.
Eggs, the protein-rich superfood, offer us a variety of benefits to not just our bodily strength but also to our hair. Eggs are packed with essential vitamins and minerals, as well as selenium, calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorous, among other nutrients and in fact, the yolk portion of the egg contains lecithin, which helps in promoting hair growth and making your tresses silky and smooth.
Rich in protein and biotin, eggs provide nourishment and texture to damaged tresses and prevent hair breakage and split ends by conditioning the scalp.
Flaxseed contains vitamin E, ensuring that your dry hair gets the hydrating nourishment it needs. Vitamin E promotes hair growth due to its antioxidant properties and prevents hair and scalp damage. These seeds also improve blood circulation and prevent premature greying. In fact, even the pH levels and oil production are balanced by using flax seeds for hair. They are also a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for healthy hair growth, and nourishing the follicles and hair shafts. Flax seeds make the hair stronger, prevent damage, and help fight split ends.
To boost your hair’s strength, flaxseeds and eggs will work wonders together, as they add shine to the hair and condition the scalp:
Step 1: Using a grinder, grind the flax seeds to make a powder. Now, take a bowl and mix the flax seeds powder, whole egg, and olive hair oil together.
Step 2: Mix the ingredients well to form a paste. Your hair mask is ready!
Step 3: Apply the paste on your hair, from roots, scalp to tips.
Step 4: Gently massage your hair for 10-15 minutes using the paste.
Step 5: Keep the hair mask on for 2-3 hours, and then wash off with cold water. Follow it up with a shampoo.
So, ladies, using this hair mask once or twice a week will help you get rid of those split ends, and make your hair smooth and shiny!
