I don't know a single person who doesn't want to have thick, silky, shiny, beautiful hair. On average, people in the United States spent almost $1100.00 a year on hair care products last year. And, that's not counting visits to the salon!
There are a number of things that effect the condition of our crowning glory. They include:
- Overall health and nutrition
- Hair styling, including straightening and drying
- Hair dying
- Environmental factors like sun and pollution
- Taking certain prescription medications
There are more, but I think you get the gist.
Fortunately, there is a hair tonic you can easily make at home that doesn't cost a lot of money. This tonic can strengthen your hair, reverse the damage caused by the above factors, and restore it to its former thick, shiny, healthy glory.
Natural Tonic for Thick, Shiny, Fast Growing Hair
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 2 tablespoons of castor oil
Combine all of the listed ingredients in a bowl and stir them well (you may need to double or triple the recipe depending on the length of your hair). Apply first to the scalp and hair roots, then apply the remaining mixture to the rest of your hair. Put a shower cap on to cover all of your hair and leave to work its magic for 2 - 4 hours. Then, wash and condition your hair as usual.
Why this tonic works so well:
1. Egg Yolk
Egg yolk contains protein, fatty acids, and vitamins that will strengthen your hair. The Vitamin A in egg yolk helps to moisturize and promote hair growth. And, the lecithin in egg yolk helps protect the hair from brittleness and breakage.
Honey is full of antioxidants that softens, smooths and gives your scalp and hair follicles a boost! Healthy, beautiful hair starts with a healthy scalp! So, honey not only makes your hair look healthy, it makes your hair grow faster! The sugar in honey also moisturizes and helps prevent hair loss.
3. Castor Oil
Castor oil is a vegetable oil that contains the amino acid, Ricinoleic. This amino acid has the ability to penetrate deeply into the hair scalp and follicles. This enables all of those beautiful nutrients to really get deeply into the hair and scalp to work their miracles. Castor oil also helps to regulate the pH level of the scalp, eliminates dandruff, and protects the hair from those damaging environmental factors.
