If you're on the East Coast, you're likely facing some serious snow. Those of us taking a snow day in NYC are using this as the perfect time to indulge in a little DIY haircare. In case the snow has you hunkered down in your home too, we've got a handy shampoo recipe from Indie Lee, founder of her eponymous eco-friendly skincare line, made from ingredients found in your kitchen cabinets.
Find Out How to Preserve Your Hair After the JUMP!
One teaspoon olive oil
One teaspoon lemon juice
One teaspoon castile soap or mild unscented shampoo
Half a cup water
Combine all ingredients in a blender and whip until smooth. Use a spoonful of the mixture as a shampoo on wet hair. Rinse shampoo out completely. The mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for up to four days for continued use.
Lee says the key ingredient in this magical mixture is the protein-rich egg, which helps to strengthen hair follicles, reduce breakage and split ends, and detangle strands. The protein found in the egg thickens limp hair while acting as a conditioner and moisturizer at the same time, she says. And unlike commercial shampoos, eggs allow hair to retain natural oils for a brilliant shine.
So put your snow day to good use and treat your strands to a little all-natural healing.
