Everything You Need To Know About Healthy Looking Hair By Gabriela Green

Do you seek glowing, shiny and smooth textured hair like all of us, without spending a fortune on hair treatments and products? We can help you by giving you our favorite home made treatment and moisture mask recipes. Use them at home when you feel comfortable, at your own free time.

But first a few facts, I don't want to "lecture" you about life style but the most important tip for healthy looking, strong hair is having a balanced nutrition. Like they say, everything starts from inside. When you hair looks dry, dull or breaks, probably your body is missing some essential vitamins and minerals, like vitamin C, vitamin B-12, B-5, B-6 and Fe, Zn and Selenium. Last but not least is drinking enough water that will provide natural moisture to your hair.

So you eat a balanced diet, drink enough water and still, when you are facing the mirror you wish your hair looked healthier and shinier. Sometimes having the perfect life style is not enough since we are affected by other parameters surrounding us like weather or simply a bad coloring experience. Your hair and scalp feel the change of season; the cold wind, dry air and indoor heat cause hair breakage and static electricity make it look spunky and hard to style.

In order to increase your hair's ability to attract and retain moisture, here is our secret home made super moisturizing mask recipe...

Honey and olive oil based recipe:

1. Mix half a cup of honey with a quarter cup of olive oil.

2. Pour the mixture into a glass clean container, where you can keep sealed until you are ready to use it.

3. Before the treatment wash your hair with water only (no shampoo needed), take only two table spoons of the mixture and gently massage your hair with your fingers.

4. If your hair is extremely dry then double the suggested quantity.

5. Once the mask has been applied, wrap your hair with a bathing hat or simply with kitchen wrapping nylon and leave it for 30 minutes.

6. After 30 minutes wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner and dry it as usual.

Have fried your hair using a curling iron or overdosed it with bleaching and coloring while trying to reach that elusive perfect blonde?

Don't panic, it is going to be over soon, try this secret recipe and you will be surprised by the visible change to your hair. If your hair isn't in a great shape, use it once a week until you feel your hair's health was restored, to maintain your hair's health use it once a month as the perfect hair care treatment, and see the results for yourself!

Be well.
