Let’s be frank. Your hair takes a lot of abuse, and modern technology is partly to blame. Haircare products are manufactured quickly, and all kinds of chemicals and synthetic preservatives and fragrances are blended into these formulas. Also, the super hot heat coming from your blow-dryer, flat-iron, curling iron and more all play a role in the damage of your hair.
Many of us blindly purchase haircare brands without really understanding what ingredients have been used to make these shampoos, conditioners and styling products. We continue our haircare routines and don’t see much improvement or repair to our hair strands. So what’s one of the easiest ways to fix this issue and grow a healthy mane of hair again?
Liquid Glycerine—Nature’s Answer
You have probably seen the inclusion of glycerine on many of your favourite cosmetic products you’ll find on the shelf. The substance is an excellent humectant. It can be used as an active ingredient to draw moisture from the air and seal in hydration for the skin and hair.
However, not all glycerine is the same. There are natural and synthetic versions of glycerine. Many of the beauty products on store shelves contain synthetic glycerine derived from alcohol or chemical sources such as petroleum-based oils.
One of the best types of liquid glycerine you can use is the one made from vegetable oils. This natural glycerine is considered pure, clean, and of food-grade quality. It contains impressive benefits for nourishing dry, damaged, dull hair. This type of glycerine is fantastic for protecting your hair from further harm.
Safe, Odourless, and Effective
Liquid glycerine is a thick substance that has zero odours and appears colourless. It can be easily added to create your homemade versions of hair care products. It is non-toxic and safe for the human body.
Best of all, natural glycerine gets the thumbs up from Australia’s TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration). If you’re searching for ingredients that can repair and rejuvenate your hair, liquid glycerine is a good one to try. There’s no mess, and a little goes a long way.
Make Your Own Liquid Glycerine Rinse
This DIY recipe is super-simple and becomes the final step in your shower routine. This Liquid Glycerine Rinse is best applied to your hair after you’ve shampooed and conditioned it.
In a small spray bottle, mix equal parts of water and liquid glycerine, and shake it. That’s it. You don’t need to make a big batch, just enough for one application that covers your entire scalp.
Spritz the glycerine rinse on to your damp hair. Massage the rinse into the scalp and strands. Leave it on for about five minutes, and rinse it out with warm water. Perform this hair ritual up to three times a week for outstanding results.
Make Your Own Liquid Glycerine Leave-In Treatment
Another easy way to absorb the benefits of natural liquid glycerine is by making a DIY leave-in treatment.
You will need another spray bottle for this application and these ingredients:
- 4 1/4 cups of chamomile tea
- 1 tsp. of honey
- 3 tsp. of glycerine
- 2 tsp. of vegetable oil
- 6 drops of rosemary oil
Pour these ingredients into a large spray bottle, and shake well. You can spritz the leave-in treatment on to damp or dry hair daily. It will add shine, softness and moisture to your locks. You can keep the mixture refrigerated, and it will last for at least two weeks.
Healthy, Glossy Hair Growth
Now, we can’t promise that you’ll grow two inches of hair every month by adding liquid glycerine to your beauty routine. Some people claim that this “liquid gold” can achieve a longer length in no time, but we prefer to be more sensible about it.
Natural liquid glycerine for hair can be a game-changer because of its incredible humectant properties. It delivers the right balance of moisture for your strands and seals in the hydrating goodness.
When hair is nourished, it grows faster and healthier and doesn’t snap off or fall out easily. Today, most of us care more about what ingredients go into our beauty products.
Take control of your beauty routine, and discover how natural raw ingredients can contribute to a healthier you both inside and out. Natural alternatives are exactly what nature intended. Create your own healthy, personal care products, and you’ll notice the difference.
