Some of the best beauty solutions for hair that needs moisture and shine can be found right in your kitchen. Don't let your hair go out in public looking dull and an utter hot mess. Tap into your inner nature girl and discover the top natural hair moisturizers that leave your hair sexy, fierce and fabulously hydrated.
A go-to lubricant for thirsty locks, coconut oil is available at farmers' markets or health food stores. This cheap cooking oil comes in a liquid or a solid. Whichever you fancy, a little goes a long way to break down and absorb quickly into your scalp without clogging your pores. Use it as a styling aid, a leave-in conditioner or a hair mask to restore moisture and reduce hair breakage.
This kitchen favorite also belongs in the bathroom, where you can use it to add strength, sheen and suppleness to your hair. Great as a hot oil treatment or for everyday moisturizing, olive oil is lightweight and won't weigh down your hair or cause buildup like heavier products. Pour a small amount into your palms, rub together and gently run through you hair, massaging the oil into your scalp and hair and allowing the oil to penetrate.
Turn your regular body moisturizer into your new dry-hair miracle worker. Shea butter is also great for keeping hair soft and manageable. Naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F, and minerals, shea butter restores and revitalizes dry skin and hair. Apply a small amount on your locks daily to heal dry-scalp issues and maintain balance.
Used by women in Morocco for many years before making a name for itself in America, Argan, or Moroccan, oil naturally hydrates the hair and enhances elasticity. If you suffer from dry, damaged or overprocessed hair, Argan oil is useful in restoring and repairing your mistreated mane, as it's full of vitamin E and rich in omega 3s and 9s. Add a few drops onto your hand for gentle application to your scalp, or saturate your hair from root to end with the liquid gold moisturizer.
