Two things you can do every night, which are very inexpensive and help stop your hair breakage and split ends.
Plain old vaseline can aid in restoring damaged hair. Add some vaseline to the ends and lightly massage a dab of Vaseline into your scalp at night. Vaseline seals split ends but won’t get rid of them. Only a trim will do that. But this is a great way to keep ends looking healthy until your next cut.
Do not overdo vaseline on the scalp. A little goes a long way. Vaseline moisturises hair follicles and restores some of the lost moisture to your scalp. If you use too much you’ll need a lot of shampoo to get it out.
Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants, and has antiviral, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties. When used on hair, it improves scalp health, fights infections and fungus, supports hair growth, all while adding volume and shine without the common harmful chemicals.
You can even clear out commercial conditioners, shine, and styling products, and replace them with this all-natural product. Coconut oil is rich in anti-microbial properties, lauric acid, and medium-chain fatty acids that strengthen hair, condition the scalp, and help to regrow hair.
Warm up 1/2 tsp for short, 2 tsp for medium and 1 tbsp for long hair in the palm of your hands and add to ends of hair and massage rest into your scalp. Leave on for an hour or overnight and wash out. Your hair will feel much softer and shinier. Don’t use harsh shampoos. Use sulfate free shampoo or make your own with this recipe.
