Today, leschroniquesdeladiaspora.com is sharing natural recipes that helps nourish and hydrate our natural hair. Afro natural hair tend to be dry and fragile. In tropical regions, this phenomenon is not often experienced because of humidity. However, in the temperate climate, it is necessary to keep hair nourished and hydrated in order to avoid breakage. The first recipe is a capillaire masque that is made of ingredients found in our own kitchen.
– ½ Avocado ( a whole avocado depending on the length of your hair)
– 1 egg yolk ( for the shine)
½ Banana ( a whole banana depending on your length)
– 1 tablespoon of honey
– 1 tablespoon of olive oil
Put avocado and banana in a bowl. Smash and mix it together, add a tablespoon of honey, an egg yolk, and a tablespoon spoon of olive oil. Once you get a homogenous mix, this ultra nourishing mix can be used once a week to hydrate natural hair.
Before shampooing your hair, separate them into four parts . Apply this natural mix on your hair from the roots to the end. Cover your hair with a warm towel or a shower cap. Let the mix sit on your hair for about 2 hours. For ultra dryness, the mix can be kept on your hair overnight.
Then you can shampoo your hair using your normal shampooing process( shampoo, conditioner, and after shampoo).
The effective way of getting rid of the mask residues is to do a dry shampoo first. This by applying the shampoo in your hair with a tiny bit of water, you rinse your hair. You will secondly apply shampoo on your wet hair. This process is really effective to completely wash the mask out your hair.
For better results, the mask need to be used once a week for at least a month. Also, if you have any leftover, you can keep it in the fridge for 3 days.
