A milk and honey mask can make hair softer. Milk has long been known to not be just healthy for your body, but also healthy for your skin, your hair and even your eyes. Healthy hair begins from the inside out, so a diet rich in protein and antioxidants will help you to have shiny, healthy hair. Milk contains casein and whey, two important proteins for a healthy body (as long as you can tolerate dairy!) and healthy hair. Whey is often taken as a nutritional supplement to help build muscle mass but applied topically, they can also stimulate hair follicle growth.
Milk’s natural creaminess makes it an excellent conditioner for your hair. And it helps lock in the moisture, too. Whole milk, which is thicker than skim milk, can be used as a natural way to heal dry, brittle hair if you just put it in a spray bottle, spray onto your hair, let it sit for at least 30 minutes and then wash as usual – you’ll get shiny, glossy hair.
What about honey?
Interestingly, honey has some beneficial skin-care applications – it can help moisturize skin and, because of its medicinal and antimicrobial properties, can even help treat burns and other wounds.
For hair, it can also work wonders.
Honey works as a natural humectant. It seals the moisture into your hair and softens it as well and is a great treatment for your hair all by itself.
Combine the two ingredients and you’ve got one powerful hair treatment solution. You can also apply each ingredient separately to your hair and scalp as two individual treatments.
In fact, you’ve probably got a whole lot of other regular household ingredients for your hair. Anything from bananas, apple cider vinegar, coconut, eggs, strawberries and of course, avocados – can be used to condition, smooth and strengthen lackluster locks. You’ll have the added bonus of smelling great, and whichever you choose, you’ve got a natural, inexpensive solution to add to your hair-care arsenal.
