Probiotic, natural yogurt provides essential nutrients and moisture, including protein which is important as protein is the building blocks of hair. It encourages hair growth and repair, but also helps to rinse away build up and grease making it ideal for combination hair. It’s easily combined with other ingredients such as avocado if you wanted extra moisture, or strawberries if you need more oil regulation.
Mayonnaise and Strawberries:
Mayonnaise provides moisture and nutrients to help moisture and repair the dry areas of your hair, while the strawberries regulate oil production, and give a boost of vitamin C to the hair. Try using three mashed strawberries mixed into two or three tablespoon mayonnaise.
Baking soda and Yogurt:
Baking soda loosens any dirt, grime, grease or build up from the hair and scalp, while the yogurt would ensure that the hair receives all the nutrients and moisture it needs. Try mixing a teaspoon of baking soda into two tablespoons of yogurt.
To find what works for your hair, and what doesn’t, try different combinations of ingredients which you think might work for hair type, adjust the length of the time to leave it on your hair (generally between 10 and 20 minutes is fine), and the quantities of each ingredient in the mixture you use. Everybody’s hair is different, so your ideal recipe will be unique too.
Enjoy your healthy, voluminous, shiny, clean hair!
