I know a lot of people, including me, have colored their hair more than once or twice or even three times in their life and they want that color to last for a long time. Sometimes instead of going out and buying the SUPER DUPER LONG LASTING HAIR CONDITIONER WITH BLAH BLAH BLAH PROTEIN FOR THIS AND THIS AND THAT WITH BLAH BLAH BLAH you can make your own with the ingredients inside your own home. Below are a few recipes I found that I have tried out and have worked really well for my color treated hair and kept my hair color looking bright and bold.
Honey Hair Rinse
This rinse, made with honey and water, can be used on a daily basis to keep hair shiny and healthy. Combine one teaspoon of pure honey with about four cups of very warm water. Transfer the mixture to a plastic squeeze bottle for easier application in the shower, if possible. An old shampoo bottle may be used, but make sure it’s thoroughly clean first.
After shampooing the hair as usual, simply apply the honey hair treatment to the scalp and throughout the hair. Allow it to remain on for 2-3 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Let hair air dry for best results.
Honey Banana Deep Conditioner
The bananas in this hair treatment enhance the potassium and vitamins found in the honey to create an extremely effective deep conditioner. The solution coats the cuticles of the hair, resulting in manageable and healthy locks. It can be used as often as needed, with a minimum of once a week recommended for very dry and brittle hair.
To make, combine one very ripe mashed banana with one tablespoon of pure honey until a smooth and creamy consistency is achieved. Dampen your hair with warm water and then massage the mixture into the scalp and throughout the hair. If you have very long hair, a double batch may be needed. After application, secure the hair in a shower cap, plastic wrap, or a clean towel. Leave the mixture in for 15-20 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly. Shampoo and condition as usual and allow the hair to air dry.
Honey Olive Oil Deep Conditioner
This deep-conditioning honey treatment works best for very dry hair. It can be used as often as once per week until the desired results are achieved, and will result in soft, shiny, healthy hair. Combine approximately three tablespoons of honey with one tablespoon of olive oil. Stir until a smooth consistency is reached. Shampoo as usual, and then apply the mixture to damp hair. Leave on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Make a double batch for very long hair, if necessary.
