3 home remedies for spilt ends


home remedies for split ends

In this day and age, too many women are overly focused on making their weave and extensions look perfect that they neglect and mistreat their natural hair.

I’m not pointing any fingers here, because I was once on the same ship. Overtime, I have learned to treat the natural kinks in my hair and the more I do so, the more I love it!

D.I.Y hair masks have become a norm in my household, and while I will at some stage share the recipe we use for hair growth, I thought I’d first start off with a problem that women of many ages and races have to deal with on a regular basis: split ends.

There are different reasons why people get split ends: over washing, a lack of moisture, excessive hair styling tools, sun exposure…..the list goes on really! But the important thing is that it can easily be fixed.

Here are some simple remedies for treating split ends at home:

Egg mask

Crack an egg into a clean bowl and then add 1 tbsp of olive oil. Mix it up and then apply it onto your hair. Leave it on for 30 – 45 minutes and then wash your hair as you normally would.

Avocado trick

Mash an avocado and then massage it in your hair. Be sure to get a good coat on your split ends. Leave it in for about 25 minutes and then wash your hair as you normally would.

Honey rinse

Mix 2 spoonfuls of honey with a spoonful of curd and then massage it into your hair. Pay particular attention to the split ends. Leave the mixture on for about 25 minutes and then rinse it out water.

If you try one or two of these methods once every 2 weeks you will begin to see a difference, all it takes is a bit of discipline! Your hair is your glory, remember? 🙂

D.I.Y Honey & Lemon Face Mask

D.I.Y/ Natural beauty

honey & lemon face mask

I noticed that I got  a good bit of feedback from my first D.I.Y post on how to make a lip scrub, so I thought that it would be a good idea to do another quick D.I.Y post for you, so if you’re looking to lighten, tighten and brighten your face, keep reading and you will soon find that this honey & lemon face mask is the answer to your beauty prayers!

What you need:

Raw honey & Organic lemon juice (just a fancy way of saying squeeze the juice out of real lemons rather than getting ready made lemon juice!)

Why raw honey?

Honey is a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory so by using raw/organic honey in your face mask, you will benefit from all the nutrients that usually die due to excessive heat and pasteurization in non-organic honey.

It also absorbs impurities from the pores and the skin (No wonder ancient beauties used it with milk to keep their complexion looking young and radiant!)

And why would you ever want to put lemon on your face!!??

Here’s why…..

Lemon, lightens, tightens and brightens!!! Now to get more technical…. because of the lightening properties in lemon it is good for uneven skin tone. Not to mention that it’s good for exfoliating (important for any face mask!)

Now down to the nitty gritty…

Squeeze 1/2 a lemon into a bowl, add 2 tbsp of honey (organic/raw). Mix it with a spoon until it’s a liquid consistency. Apply it all over a clean face avoiding eye area.Leave on for 15-20 mins and rinse off. And it’s that simple!

Have you ever tried a honey and lemon face mask?
