    [SIZE=-1]Avoid shampoos that contain sodium laurel sulfate, or sodium laureth sulfate. [/SIZE][SIZE=-1]They are valued because they lather well, but they are very harsh, and can dry out your hair. Instead, look for shampoos made with decyl glucose, or decyl glucoside, which are much gentler.

    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Give yourself a hot oil treatment to deep condition your hair. Warm oil penetrates the hair shaft making the hair more flexible and giving it shine. This can also help to prevent split ends which result from dry hair.

    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Eat right and consider taking vitamin and mineral supplements to encourage healthy hair.
    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] vitamin E, vitamin B, vitamin C are essentials.

    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1] Essential oils such as rosemary, ylang-ylang and west Indian bay help to stimulate hair growth. Lavender and tea tree are naturally antiseptic and help to fight dandruff. Vegetable oils such as soybean oil, safflower oil and corn oil are moisturizing and conditioning to the hair shaft.

    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Avoid sleeping in hair accessories

    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Massage your scalp to help stimulate hair growth.

    [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]If your hair ends are damaged, give yourself a trim every so often to remove damage.

    Dosent it sound beautiful hair done at home?

    I had done many experiments on my hair for natural shine and color. And truly all these are just kitchen friendly items. But these really work.. Try it...

    To bring out highlights and lighten blonde hair, steep 1/2 cup of chamomile tea in one quart of boiling water. Strain and cool slightly. Shampoo hair until oil free, and then rinse with the tea infusion.

    Marigold gives golden highlights to light hair and brings out red and gold highlights in light brown and red hair. Saffron, turmeric, calendula, mullein, privet and yellow broom in addition to any yellow blossomed herb or flower also add color and highlights for blondes.

    Rinse hair with a solution of 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to one gallon of water after shampooing.

    To restore hair that was once blonde, mix 10 grams of licorice root with 10 grams of oat straw, add a pinch of saffron. Cover with water and boil to make an infusion. Strain and use a s a rinse after shampooing. It should be allowed to soak into the hair and not rinsed out.

    Add 4 tablespoons of chopped rhubarb to 3 cups of hot water, simmer for 15 minutes. Strain, cool, and then use as a rinse after shampooing.

    Please let me know your feedbacks..
