Getting hair treatments on a regular basis by professional hair dressers can be quite costly, and if you are a busy person with a hectic schedule then it can be pretty difficult to honour hair appointments.

These easy home hair treatments will ensure that you maintain your hair at a much lower cost while keeping it healthy and looking great.

Hot towel treatment

Sarah Angius has shared her hot towel treatment which she does regularly to keep her hair healthy and glossy.

Start the treatment off by washing your hair with your desired shampoo.

Then apply your favourite hair mask to your hair, from your roots to the tip of your hair.

Next you will need to wet a towel completely with warm water, and then ring it to get rid of the excess water. You will then need to place the towel in the microwave, and heat it up for approximately two minutes.

Once the towel has been heated, you place it on your head, making sure that all of your hair is wrapped.

Remove the towel once it gets cold, and then style your hair however you want to, to complete your look.

Increase your hair growth

The RTHairColour TikTok page has shared their hack on how aid your hair’s growth.

Boil five cups of water and add three rosemary sprigs to the boiling water to boil for 30 minutes. Once the mixture has cooled off, place it in a jar and store it in the fridge to cool further.

Once the mixture is cool, place it in a spray bottle and then spray the rosemary water directly onto your hair, making sure that you saturate your entire scalp. Leave the mixture on your hair overnight.

The rosemary sends more oxygen and nutrients directly into your hair follicles, and that in turn promotes healthy hair.

Lice and tick treatment

Kavya Yadav has shared her homemade hair treatment to kill and get rid of hair lice and ticks.

Pour any oil you prefer into a small pot, and then heat it up. Add camphor to the heated oil and make sure that the two ingredients are mixed thoroughly.

Apply the mixture onto your roots using a cotton ball or pad. Use your preferred oil to apply to the strands of the rest of your hair.

Cover your hair with a hot towel or steam your hair for 10 minutes. Once that is done, wash your hair with regular water.

Use this treatment and hack for at least two weeks for greater results.
