This week's Paleo Beauty Friday is helping you get a healthy scalp, add volume, boost shine, and even preserve your color with 4 great hair remedies from Marie Clare that you can find in your refrigerator, and all ingredients are paleo friendly! YAY!
to reduce excess oil, dampen a cotton ball with witch hazel and dab it along your hairline and part. Next rinse hair with cool water. Skip conditioner, though, and apply a detangler only to the ends of your hair — your scalp may be sensitive after this treatment. Fight flakes weekly by adding five drops of tea-tree oil to your favorite shampoo.
starting at the roots, brush a quarter cup of coconut oil through dry hair and leave it on for an hour. Blast the ends with a dryer for five minutes to help oil penetrate deeper. Skip the roots — the scalp emits enough warmth on its own, and applying extra heat could lead to greasy textures later.
Minerals in your water can cause brassiness for blondes and redheads. For a quick fix, mix a quarter cup of distilled white vinegar with a half cup of filtered water, add a few drops of lavender oil (to fight off the smell of vinegar) and pour it over hair before rinsing with cool water.
