Homemade hair treatments - and some natural alternatives

If you’re looking for natural hair treatments and want to avoid nasty chemicals, you can always make your own!

The Daily Green website has come up with a honey and avocado treatment that sounds like it could be really rather tasty, but promises to be invigorating and revitalising.

“Homemade creams, soaps and other products can be just as luxurious and fragrant as their commercial counterparts but you can avoid artificial chemicals – and the headache of dealing with all that packaging waste,” says the website.

Simply mash together a medium avocado - preferably a ripe one - with two tablespoons of honey, and massage it into your hair. Leave for 20 to 30 minutes, and then wash your hair as usual.

However, if that sounds a bit too much like hard work, or a bit messy, there are plenty of natural hair products out there that use both avocado and honey.

So you can make guacamole instead if you like!
