A DIY treatment that “restores a healthy shine back to your mane” using only three kitchen ingredients? Yes, please and thank you! I have pretty thin, dry-ish hair so I am a sucker for anything that promises shine, and uses the word ‘mane’, in the hope that I’ll look like ZD by the end of it…
Ruth found a simple pin that suggested mixing together honey, olive oil, and egg to make a hair mask, so the other week we gave it a go:
I’d say it’s defo easier to try this with someone to apply it for you. The mixture is pretty runny, so I hung my head over the sink while Ruth poured it on and rubbed it into the ends.
In progress…Hung out with a bag on my head (partly to help with drips, partly with the idea it would help it work better (?!)) for about 20 mins before jumping in the shower to wash it out, then dry my hair.
oh, you wanted an after photo? Too bad! To say my hair looked the same as before would be a overstatement – my hair was WORSE than before!
Not only was there no added shine, softness, vitality, etc (that I could tell, anyway!), I also still had honey in hair, even after two shampoos! Plus I’d also wasted a good egg that could have been poached…One to try – Quinoa cakes and poached egg. Yumfest.
Oh well! Not the greatest success, but probs won’t stop me trying another home treatment in future. Plenty on Pinterest!
Anyone else tried a DIY hair treatment? Success??
