Homemade beauty treatment 5 Kitchen items for hair growth

Using these natural ingredients commonly found in your kitchen as hair care products can prove beneficial for your hair in the long run

  • Published:

Shiny, lustrous hair is what we all strive for. Overexposure to harsh chemicals can all cause your hair to break 
and fall out.

Before you head to the store to shop for your next hair care product, look around your kitchen and you might have all you need to get hair healthy.

Extra Virgin Coconut oil

Coconut oil is one of those must have ingredients to get hair healthy. It is also versatile as a beauty product and makes a great hair care treatment because of its richness in fatty acids that moisturize and treat the hair and scalp.

It is ideal as a deep conditioning treatment for dry, damaged hair or coarse hair. It also makes an excellent detangling and moisturizing treatment for thick, curly and kinky hair types.


Vitamin A is an essential nutrient if you’re looking to grow and strengthen your tresses, and carrots are jam filled with beta carotene, an excellent source of Vitamin A.

Another alternative is to simply purchase all natural carrot oil, which is often more potent.


To get hair healthy and grow it long, you need to minimize hair loss and shedding by strengthening hair strands. Protein in the hair is the chemical compound that affects the strength and structure of the hair.

Eggs are a great source of protein and make a great weekly hair mask especially when combined with other natural ingredients such as yogurt, honey or avocados.


Honey is another one of those versatile ingredients that make great as a beauty treatment. In hair care, honey helps to retain and draw water to the hair keeping the scalp and hair strands moisturized.

It can be combined with other natural ingredients to create a mask. Or can be used alone or mixed with your favorite natural oil as a deep conditioning treatment.


If you’ve ever purchased one of those hair growth vitamins, then you have noticed biotin as a top ingredient on the list, that’s because Biotin plays a major role in maintaining healthy scalp and growing healthy hair.

Yogurt is an excellent source of Biotin and also contains other vitamins and proteins that make it a great treatment for hair. To use, simply blend yogurt with other natural ingredients or oils to create a hair mask.
