Lovely tips for hair care you can make, we love Rosemary Oil and Vinegar Rinses, both wonderful additions to your natural skincare –
Rosemary oil can add luster and shine to extremely dry hair. This wonderful natural seasoning has a lot of powerful properties. It stimulates hair follicles, can help prevent premature hair loss, and darkens the hair naturally for those who don’t want to use harmful chemical dyes.
To make your own rosemary oil, put the fresh rosemary leaves into a container and cover them with either sesame or olive oil. Put the mixture on the window sill or other location where the sun will hit regularly. Leave there for one month. Once it has steeped for the appropriate amount of time, strain the mixture and put it into another container. Store in a dark place until you are ready to use it.
To use your rosemary oil, heat it slightly in the microwave or by inserting its container into very hot water. Once it is warmed, work the oil into already shampooed hair. Pick through the hair or use a wide-tooth comb to make certain that the oil is evenly distributed. Wrap your head in a towel and leave for between 15 minutes and one hour. Then, all you have to do is rinse and style.
Vinegar, mixed with water, makes a wonderful hair rinse. It also helps to clarify the hair by removing excess product buildup. My mother used it on my hair when I was little because my baby fine hair was long (nearly down to my knees). It helped to restore youthful shine and untangled my terrible tresses with remarkable ease. I found out later that vinegar is also great for taming natural bacteria growth that occurs on the scalp. Some say it is also excellent for those suffering from dandruff. The type of vinegar chosen is up to you. Mom used apple cider vinegar on my hair but a lot of people with dark colored hair swear by brown vinegar. You can either choose to rinse the vinegar out with cool water or leave it on as a leave-in conditioner.
