I have very blonde hair and I love to swim, but my hair will sometimes turn green from the chlorine. So if you are like me then this is the perfect fix for you!!
Mix a very small amount of ketchup or tomato paste with your regular shampoo. Get your hair wet. Apply the mixture to the green areas of your hair.
Leave it in for a minute. Then rinse with water and shampoo and condition your hair like normal. It should take the green out. (if you have white blonde hair then it might not take it completely out, but believe me it will look so much better). Or if you really want to get the green out mix the ketchup or tomato paste with special shampoo that is made to help treat green hair.:)
Hot Oil Treatment
by Jinna D.
Mix 1 cup of olive oil and 1/4 cup of butter. Microwave for 1 minute. Leave on 20 mins. Shampoo.
For dry, wiry hair, the best conditioner is coconut oil. Massage it in starting at the roots and let it sit for at least an hour before shampooing out. You can condition as well. It works like a charm!
Hair Mask to Seal Split Ends
- 3/4 cup of coconut milk
- 1 whole avocado
Its fairly easy, you crush the avocado and pour in the coconut milk and then you mix until it becomes a thick paste. You then lather it into your hair and leave in for 20 minutes. It works miracles and leaves your hair shiny!
How to Get Rid of a Pony Tail Crease
by Tiffany H.
If you have an ugly pony-tail crease, but want to wear your hair down, here’s what you do. Fill an empty spray bottle with just water. Spritz (lightly) on just crease, all the way around your head. Take a round brush and pull up hair just under crease, you’ll want to do this in sections, and blow-dry just the crease, constantly turning the brush. This should only take a few minutes and you will be able to wear your hair down crease free!!
