Love Your Hair!

ashley_lf.jpgI love my hair, I remember being very proud of my hair since I was little, people would stop me and my sister to admire our very long black curly hair. The same way I love my hair, I love experimenting new things, I’ve tried almost every kind of hair product and style, not all of them fit me or are good for my hair, but I’ve found some really good products that I love and are fit to my hair. I personally don’t think that we should stick and use only one hair product or the same all the time, we should always try to alternate so our hair get a balanced treatment.Thanks to all my experimentation, I realized that the best products for our hair are the natural ones. There’s nothing better than a home made hair mask. I enjoy preparing it and using it just as much as I enjoy a face mask. Here in China is a little bit hard to find some of my desired natural products to do a hair mask, like avocado or lemon juice but still there are many good other ingredients that we can use for a successful hair treatment. Here are some really cool hair mask formulas that any woman can do at home in just a few minutes.Make sure you have everything you need when starting the process:-Ingredients-A small bowl that you’ll use to prepare the mixture-A shower cap or a plastic wrap-A towel or a piece of cloth to protect your body and cloths if the mixture from your head spills to your body(which is very likely to happen)Olive oil hair mask:You should first mix 5 tablespoon of olive oil with 2 eggs. Then you can apply the mixture evenly through all your hair. Wrap your head with a plastic wrap or shower cap. Keep your head wrapped for 15 minutes. After that time you are ready to rinse well.Honey and olive oil hair mask:This formula is very similar to the previous one, you just need to replace the eggs for honey.

After 15 minutes then you can use shampoo to rinse well.Lemon or Vinegar hair mask:This is a very different mask.
