7 Popular Healing Remedies That Are Not Good For Your Hair

Natural beauty is always in style and that’s why we’re always writing about natural treatments that can do wonders for you! There are hundreds of natural masks recipes out there, but the question is: do they actually work? We’ve tested 9 of the most popular hair remedies that promise to do wonders for your hair and got shocking results!

Here are the 7 healing remedies that are actually not good for your hair:

1. Onions

Expectation:

Onions is known to make your hair grow faster, make it shinier, thicker and healthier. Onion and garlic juice are considered to be the best way to treat baldness since they contain strong antibacterial, anti-inflammatory  and fungicidal properties.

Reality:

The reality is that onion juice can cause scalp inflammation and it smells really bad.  The smell will only accumulate and it’s nearly impossible to get rid of the nasty smell.

2. Eggs

Expectation:

Eggs contain vitamin D and E and can make your hair shinier and smoother and prevent split ends.

Reality:

Egg whites can’t actually penetrate into the hair which eventually causes build up. The smell is also pretty bad and hard to get rid of.

3. Beer

Expectation:

Shiny hair, deep restoration and less hair loss

Reality:

Alcohol can dry out your hair and that’s why we recommend using beer as a rinse. Most reviews show that beer doesn’t actually do anything for your hair except make it smell like beer.

4. Oils

Expectation:

Oils will make your hair shinier and softer and prevent dryness.

Reality:

Oils will actually make your hair worse. Oils build up and clog the hair follicles and you end up with a scalp covered with oil. Most hair specialists don’t recommend using oils.

5. Baking soda

Expectation:

Baking soda treatment guarantees a smoother, lighter and less greasy.

Reality:

Washing your hair with baking soda can increase your hair’s fragility, damage your hair’s structure and cause tangles. It’s ok if you use it once, but constantly washing your hair with baking soda can cause serious hair and scalp problems.

6. Salt

Expectation:

Salt can make your hair grow faster and can have a scalp peeling effect.

Reality:

Rinsing your hair with water and salt and doing salt sculp scrubs is actually ok, but you need to be aware of a couple of things. You shouldn’t use salt masks if you have any injuries on your head because it can cause burning of the scalp. Don’t use salt if you have dry hair since it can cause hair loss and hair damage.

7. Acids

Expectation:

Lemon juice, vinegar and fermented milk masks can make your hair soft, smooth and healthy.

Reality:

Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar can cause scalp irritation if they’re used for a longer period of time. Masks that contain yogurt and kefir can make your hair rough.
