However, going to a salon might not always be the best option. But do not worry because there are a few DIY hair spa treatments that you can do at home to get back your strong and healthy hair!

Hair Spa Treatment with Bananas

  • Mash one ripe banana in a blender and add two tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Keep the mixture aside as you prepare to steam your hair.
  • For steaming, take a large pot of hot water and lean over it. Cover your hair with a towel and let the steam settle for ten minutes.
  • Gently massage the banana and olive oil mixture onto your hair and let it sit for about half an hour.

Try this hair spa twice a week to have healthy and smooth hair. Bananas contain potassium, vitamins and natural oils that make hair stronger and reduces split ends.

Hair Spa Treatment with Avocados

  • Take out the flesh of ripe avocado and mash it well to make a paste that is free of lumps.
  • Massage this paste onto your hair, and make sure that you massage from the roots to the tips.
  • Now, steam your hair for ten minutes by leaning over a pot of hot water and covering your head with a towel to allow the steam to settle in your hair.
  • Wait for another twenty minutes before washing your hair with lukewarm water and a gentle shampoo.

Avocados are a rich source of fatty oils and this mask when applied once a week, nourishes dry and damaged hair.

Hair Spa Treatment with Eggs and Coconut Oil

  • Wash your hair using cold water and shampoo.

Coconut oil is an old favorite that nourishes all types of hair. Try this DIY spa once a week and since eggs are rich in proteins, this mask will help your hair grow longer and stronger than before.

Hair Breakage: Common Causes and How to Fix Them?

Raise your hand if you are suffering from hair breakage. Well, you’re not alone! Does that make you feel better? For sure, it does.

Even though hair breakage sucks, the good news is that it is not permanent. You can always follow a few tips and tricks and stop it right away.

Let’s see how.

  • Lack of moisture

Needless to say, dry hairs are more prone to breakage. Thus, make sure that you are taking care of your strands pretty well and are giving them all the attention that they deserve.

An ideal hair routine consists of a right shampoo and conditioner such that your hair stays properly hydrated.

Further, make sure that you stay away from hard water which might contain heavy metals and chlorine and might be harmful to your hair.

  • Too many heat treatments

It is a no-brainer that heat treatments make your hair dry, weak and thus make them prone to frequent hair breakage. In addition to staying away from heat treatments, also make sure that you are using heat protection every time you style your hair.

Trust us; do not heat-style your hair every other day and you will surely end up saving a lot of strands from breakage.

  • Frying your hair

Blow drying water dripping wet hair can be disastrous to your hair. It is best if you let your hair air dry before blow drying them. Further, make sure that you are not stretching your hair strands too much while blow drying as it is not good for your hair.

An ideal hair drier is one which dries your hair so quickly that there is no time left to overheat your hair.

  • Chemical exposure

Colored hair might look cool, but at the end, they promote hair breakage. Same is the case with hair straightening. If you love hair straightening, make a healthy transition and switch to keratin treatment which adds a smooth coating on each strand without overcooking it.

  • Sleeping on cotton pillow cover

This might sound a bit weird at first, but sleeping on cotton pillow cover triggers hair breakage. This is because of the friction that is created between the fabric and your hair.

Thus, it is highly recommended to invest in a silk or satin pillow cover for healthy hair.

  • Towel drying

Yes, towel drying is not good as it tangles your hair all the more. It is highly recommended to ditch towel drying and instead use an old t-shirt or a paper towel to dry your hair, which are good water absorbents and are also easy on your hair.

  • Over washing

If you shampoo your hair every day, this is where you are going wrong. Excessive shampooing your hair trips off the natural oils from your hair and leave them dry.

Thus, make it a point to shampoo maximum 3 times a week. However, oily hair might need more frequent washing, but in such case, make sure that you use a mild shampoo.
