6 DIY Hair Treatments to Detox, Nourish & Strengthen

Prep your hair for the big day with these DIY hair treatments.
“Heading to the salon or your local beauty supply store is fine and good, but your fridge and pantry can provide a host of delectable ingredients that will nourish and rejuvenate your hair, as well,” explains Wendy Rose Gould beauty expert for hair tutorial and advice site www.Latest-Hairstyles.com. “From mashed bananas to blended carrots to strawberries, fenugreek seeds and beyond, chances are you have many of these ingredients at your immediate disposal. Snack on some, of course, but also put them atop your head as DIY hair treatments that make for glorious, glorious hair.”

DIY Hair Treatment Recipe Instructions:

Carrot Detox

carrot-detox

Either finely shred your carrot by hand, or put it in a blender to break it down. Combine with two tablespoons of coconut oil and mix well, then apply to dry hair. Let it set for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse in the sink (to keep carrots out of your bathtub drain). Condition and style per normal.

 


 

Strawberry Banana Hair Detox

hair-detox

 

Chop your four strawberries into small pieces and then either mash them by hand or use a blender to puree. Combine with one mashed banana and two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Apply to shampooed hair and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Shampoo, condition, and style per normal.

 


 

Almond and Avocado Treatment

DIY-Hair-Treatments

Crush or blend your almonds, then cut your avocado in half and remove the pit. Mash the almonds into the avocado and then combine with olive oil, mixing well until you have a smooth consistency. Let the mixture set for 20 minutes before applying to allow the ingredients to fuse, then apply to shampooed hair and let set for 10 to 15 minutes before shampooing.

 


 

Egg Yolk Mask

DIY-Hair-Mask

 

Separate your egg yolk from the white and beat the yolk. Slowly add the milk, mixing as you do, then add the honey. Apply the mixture to your hair, starting at the ends and working your way up. Let the mask set for 15 minutes, then rinse with cool water. Hot water can make the egg cook, so stick with cooler water.

 


 

Fenugreek Strengthener

DIY-Hair-Treatment-1

 

Blend your fenugreek seeds into a powder, then combine with yogurt to make a paste. Apply to dry hair and allow it to set for 30 minutes before rinsing and shampooing. Fenugreek is rich in proteins and vitamins, which strengthens hair.

 


 

Blackseed Oil Conditioner

HIY-Hair-Conditioner

Maximize the effects of a normal conditioner by adding equal parts coconut oil, blackseed oil, and your normal conditioner. Mix well, then saturate hair and throw on a shower cap. Blackseed oil makes hair fuller and stronger while coconut oil adds shine.

New Belgium Engagement Session

If you live you in Colorado, you know that we love our beer. New Belgium is a staple in Colorado for local breweries. This beer-loving couple was lucky to have a friend in the industry to grant access to the brewery for their engagement session in Fort Collins.  Photos be the ultra talented Sarah Hays {LISTmember}.

Rustic Chic Wedding at Beano’s Cabin

Beaver Creek not only provided a gorgeous mountain backdrop but it was the place where the Groom proposed to his Bride……making it the perfect place for their wedding.

Notes from the photographer, Tiffany Brinton of Brinton Studios

Beanos Cabin is always incredible. It is truly one of our favorite venues of all time. The staff is top notch and the service is off the charts. Then, add in Stacy with Alexan Events to spice up the decor, you end up with this beauty. Oh, and just look at the bride and groom!! Molly and Jon were so easy to shoot. Truly a photographer’s dream. Two of Molly’s bridesmaids were recently married so they really wanted to have a few photos taken in all of their wedding dresses together – WHY NOT?! A bonus was their adorable daughter and her strong willed personality to only wear pajamas during the ceremony.

Notes from the bride, Molly: 

Inspiration / Details of the Day:
Honestly, I was a terrible bride. My work schedule didn’t allow me to be as involved in the process as I would have liked… my mother-in-law and wedding planner did basically everything. Jon and I guided them, but I wasn’t super involved in pinning and researching other weddings, etc… just didn’t have time for it. My wedding planner was phenomenal. Stacy Pisani of Alexan Events is outstanding.

Most memorable moment/s?
Definitely my daughter wearing her pajamas and cowboy boots down the aisle. She refused to wear her flower girl dress, insisted on being held during the ceremony, threw mini marshmallows down the aisle instead of flower petals…so sweet. Our entire wedding weekend was magical because of the friends and family who celebrated with us. Having them to support and love us on our day is one of the best feelings he and I have had. We had mule deer join us for the ceremony as well. That was pretty amazing :)

Any advice to couples in the planning process?
Anyone who tells you it’s fun is lying. It was one of the most stressful six+ months of our life, especially when trying to balance the needs of all involved parties. But have fun with it and use your friends as a source of love, support, and wedding wisdom. I would not have survived had it not been for my friends.
