Honey is a natural humectant that draws moisture from the air to your hair. This super ingredient promotes hair growth as it moisturizes dry and brittle strands from the roots. It can be used alone or mixed with others ingredients like oils or milk to make a natural hair mask.
Sadly, this ingredient is not celebrated enough for its greatness. Blackstrap molasses is a derived product of sugar cane. It contains minerals and vitamins like iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium, which are all beneficial for hair growth. You can dilute it with water and massage it into your scalp to moisturize it and stimulates hair growth. Similarly, its consistency is sticky like honey. After using a deep mask made with blackstrap molasses, your hair will feel moisturized and look shinier.
The aloe vera plant is a natural moisturizer with a balanced PH level for hair. The best option would be to use the plant as it is fresh with no added preservatives but you can go with a gel or an organic natural juice. You could mix the natural aloe Vera juice with your water spray for a daily use. I also like using the plant as a moisturizer mask for my scalp and hair. After washing it, my hair feels soft and moisturized.
It naturally absorbs water from the surroundings and provides moisture to the scalp. Vegetable glycerine can be found at most grocery and health food stores. It helps against frizz and also works as a sealant as it locks the moisture in your hair.
