The best thing you can do is consult your hair professional, it might be that a good trim of the ends is in order to give the hair a good chance to grow healthily. If you’ve recently had a hair cut though, you might like to try some of the following natural remedies.
Egg Shampoo – For this treatment, all you need is an ounce of rosemary, preferably fresh, a pint of hot water, and one egg. What you want to do is steep your rosemary in the hot water for about 20 minutes, then let it cool. Once it’s cooled down, beat your egg into it, then massage the mix into your hair and rinse, just as you would with a regular shampoo.
Castor Oil Tonic – Castor oil is helpful for a wide range of things. Just mix equal amounts of castor oil, mustard oil, and olive oil – again, the amount you mix depends on the length and thickness of your hair. All you have to do is apply the mix into your hair, then wrap it up in a towel and let it set for 30 minutes. You definitely want to shampoo when you wash it out!
Honey – Honey is fantastic for home hair treatments of split ends, especially when you mix it with curd. All you need is a half cup of curd and a tablespoon of honey, mix together well.
