Ice cubes are widely used for skin care but did you know that they can do wonders for your hair too? Ice cubes work the best because they seal in open hair cuticles just as they tighten pores on skin due to cold temperature. Using additional hair care ingredients just adds on to the benefits! Below is how you could make and use ale vera ice cubes for soft, shiny and healthy hair:
Aloe vera gel- Aloe vera is a natural hair moisturizer and it adds a boost of hydration to dry and frizzy strands. It also forms a protective film on the hair thereby preventing it from sun damage and keeps it manageable. Aloe vera also makes hair super shiny.
Rose water- Rose water treats sun damaged hair, makes hair manageable, controls oiliness, and keeps your hair smelling fresh.
Lavender essential oil- Lavender essential oil adds a nice shine to your hair, repairs damaged cuticles and prevents split ends. It also works as a natural fragrant ingredient. READ MORE – ESSENTIAL OIL HAIR GROWTH TONIC
