DIY Hair Treatment Recipes

Did you know there are hair salons popping up in New York, that are blending up fresh foods as hair treatments?!

It’s such an amazing thing to see that we’re moving away from thinking that it needs to come in a bottle to be any good. People are coming in for a good avocado mask and leaving looking great and feeling good!

Inspired by these salons, I came up with hair smoothies that you can do from home! I hope you have fun with them and make it a weekly ritual to care for and love yourself, naturally!

In Your Body

First, remember that beauty comes from the inside.

To start, here’s a smoothie that you can drink everyday to support healthy hair, skin and beauty! This smoothie has everything your hair needs to grow strong and healthy:

  • The avocado gives you essential fatty acids, which prevent hair loss and promotes hair growth
  • The spinach and dark leafy greens give you protein and iron, important for strong hair
  • The banana gives you potassium, which if you’re deficient in can cause hair-loss!
  • The strawberries give you Vit C to help your body absorb the iron

Hair Oil Blend

A great tip is to pre-make a hair oil blend, which you can then use in your smoothie treatment. I buy my oils from iHerb (see them here) and the best part is that each oil is multi-use – they’re great for your skin too, so you can add it into your bath or dab it on your skin after a shower!

    Hi Nomathemba – depending on the size of your bottle, fill it 1/3 of the way with coconut oil, 1/3 olive oil and 1/3 argan oil

    hope that helps! :)
