I (Jessica) talked recently about the fact that I have super dry skin and hair back when we recommended our favorite beauty products. And I've previously shared my recipe for DIY hair detangler that I still use every day. But one of the specific problems all this dryness causes for my hair (which I've been growing out) are split ends.
I think every woman, especially those of us with long hair, suffer from the dreaded split ends curse to some degree. Which is why today I'm sharing my DIY split ends repairing treatment with you today! This is a simple recipe using ingredients you probably have in your kitchen cabinets!
Split Ends Repair Treatment
1. 1 Tbsp olive oil
2. 1 Tbsp honey
3. 1 large egg yolk
4. 1 Tbsp coconut oil
1. Melt your coconut oil in the microwave (about 1 minute on high), then add your other ingredients.
2. Whisk together your ingredients until they're completely incorporated.
3. Put your mixture into your hair, working it all the way through your hair and making it sure that the ends get really saturated. FYI handling raw egg and sticky honey is gross! Don't say I didn't warn you!
4. Put your wet hair into a bun and let it dry for at least 30 minutes. Once it's dry wash it out in the shower, shampoo and condition as normal, then let your hair air dry. AIR DRY! Heat styling damages hair, and you really want to let this treatment sit without blasting your hair with hot air immediately.
The protein in the egg yolk combined with the moisturizers in the honey and oils really really work to help repair split ends! My hair went from being crunchy and dry to soft and shiny. I completely recommend it, and I can't wait to hear how it works for you guys! And as always, if you're looking for more awesome DIY beauty tips and recipes you can check those out here.
