Keeping your hair healthy and beautiful does not have to cost a fortune. In fact, with just a few common household ingredients, you can give your hair a deep
moisturizing treatment, give yourself subtle highlights or prevent dandruff.
In order to maintain the health and beauty of your hair, it is important to keep hair properly conditioned and hydrated. While there are a large number of treatments available for purchase at drugstores and salons, many hair masks and moisture treatments can be made inexpensively at home. These mixtures provide a more natural means of taking care of your hair.
To begin with you need to understand the present condition of your hair. Extremely dry hair tends to absorb more moisture, but your individual results may vary greatly. Before trying a mask, apply a small amount of the mixture to a test strand in order to determine if the treatment is right for your hair.
