BN Beauty: Great Home Remedies for Natural Hair Maintenance | Anirah





Hey ladies – do you know you can forget the chemicals for a while and go for natural treatments for your hair. Your natural hair appreciates it more, and you wouldn’t need to spend a fortune. You might not even spend at all! Take a look at these at-home treatments.



Their high protein content makes eggs one of the best home remedies for hair growth. They increase the volume in your hair making it look thicker.

Raw eggs are a great treatment for thinning hair and receding hairlines. They also reduce split ends and help de-tangle hair when used as a conditioner.

Here’s how to include eggs as one of your home remedies for hair growth:

  • Wash your hair with a good quality shampoo
  • Crack 2-3 eggs into a bowl and scramble them
  • Cover your hair from root to tips with the egg mixture

Rinse completely after 5 minutes.



Beer has high levels of Vitamin B and natural sugars that build thickness and volume into hair and add sheen.

Here’s how to include it in your routine:

  • Use room temperature beer that’s flat
  • Apply it as a rinse after you wash out your conditioner
  • Rinse your hair thoroughly with plain water



The eggs, vinegar and oil in mayonnaise make sandwiches taste great and also makes it a tasty treat for your hair. Next time you make yourself a sandwich, think about following that up with a deep conditioning.

  • Wash your hair and squeeze out the excess water
  • Coat it from roots to ends with full fat mayonnaise
  • Cover your hair with plastic wrap and allow the mayonnaise to penetrate for 30 minutes
  • Rinse well



Avocados are one of the best home remedies for hair growth and make great hair conditioners.

They’re packed with essential fats that are super moisturizing. This leaves your hair feeling softer and more elastic and makes it less prone to breakage.

  • Use the avocado after washing your hair with shampoo
  • Mash it into a paste with a fork
  • Coat your hair with the mashed avocados
  • Rinse after 15-20 minutes

Here are a few treatments for both strengthening and maintaining you hair.

    tried mashed avocado and i couldn’t get it out of my hair. i washed like 8 times and there were pieces of avocado falling out while drying my hair, so i only stick to egg and mayo.

      Same thing! It was so annoying. Even after I thought I’d gotten all the pieces out, still found some random ones in my hair later! smh

    I recently started using okra-water on my hair and the results has been amazing thus far. I soak the butt of the okra in water overnight and then soak it in my hair the next morning and do a scalp massage. It works like magic!

    Nicely written a piece!!! For the AVOCADO, I would suggest it be blended with a little quantity of water. That way, the fibers and all the molecules would be broken down and it would penetrate into the hair, scalp and root.

      All these treatments are great for any kind of hair. Even best for relaxed and other chemically treated hair.
