Straightening iron, hair dryer, coloring, UV, wind, cold, so many factors that attack the health of your hair. They become damaged and as dry as straw. So the broken scales of your hair prevent the cells from renewing themselves at the root. The sebaceous glands no longer produce enough sebum. Less protection, hair becomes dry, rough and split ends. Dry hair therefore needs to regain shine, moisture and radiance.
Essential oils: To say goodbye to pitchforks and nourish damaged tips, we opt for the effectiveness of essential oils of geranium, palmarosa and juniper wood.
The avocado: For the brunettes, mix half an avocado and then mix it with 5 squares of organic melted dark chocolate and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Apply to your hair while massaging to penetrate well. Leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse.
Honey: For blondes, we prefer the homemade mask to honey, which can lighten hair color slightly. Mix 2 tablespoons of honey, 4 tablespoons of olive oil and an egg yolk. Gently apply the mask to dry hair and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and then wash your hair with your usual shampoo.
Making your hair smoother:
Repeated blow-drying enthusiasts will be able to testify to it, the heat attacks the scalp. However, there are natural smoothing methods that will prevent your hair from being systematically exposed to heat. How to smooth your hair naturally? Here is a foolproof recipe for a 100% homemade relaxer mask. As surprising as it may be, the rice water mask is ultra-effective in disciplining dry hair. To do this, cook a dose of organic rice in simmering water. The water is collected and left to cool. It is applied to the hair and left to act for about 15 minutes before rinsing with clear water.
Another ultra-effective trick to smooth your hair: the kardoune. A traditional Algerian technique that consists of firmly wrapping a woven cotton ribbon – kardoune – around your hair. Ideal for long and medium-length hair, this magic ribbon can be left on all night long. This fearsome technique will protect your hair from friction and will soften it naturally without heat. The kardoune does not prevent the hair from breathing because its fabric allows a good ventilation. When you wake up, no more curls or frizz, your hair is soft and smooth.
To sublimate the curls:
Dry hair is often voluminous and unstructured. To control them and create bouncy curls, we moisturize deeply. Dry by nature, your hair needs special care and attention, which includes regular moisturizing, especially with this homemade mask. Mix 1/2 tablespoon of organic mango butter with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of organic avocado oil. Apply the mixture to your lengths and ends and gently massage the strands to coat all the hair and create the curls. Leave on for about 1 hour under a warm towel. Rinse and wash with your usual sulfate-free shampoo. Once the hair has been washed and rinsed, towel-dry but do not rub, as this may break up the curls. Dry either with a diffuser hair dryer that distributes the heat over the entire hair mass, or in the open air if the temperature allows it. Another trick to avoid breaking curls: untangle the hair before drying, ideally during shampooing or conditioner. Once the hair is dry and curls are curled, no more combing. You can eventually air with your fingers.

For shiny and healthy looking hair, it needs to be repaired in depth. Rest assured, we have a very effective natural solution: the oil bath. Sweet almond oil and olive oil are in the spotlight for dry hair.
