Today, I was addressing a conference packed with Greek beauty-istas and the shine off their collective hairdos’ was blinding. And it turns out that those thick, lustrous, super-smooth and magically shiny tresses were the result of one single ingredient. Yogurt.
Yes, yogurt. Which is packed with proteins and calcium to help mask cuticle damage and split ends, while nourishing, strengthening and moisturising the hair. Then there are the natural acids, which help contract the cuticle layer to make strands appear smoother and shinier. And the hefty doses of zinc help stimulate blood circulation, which boosts hair growth. Plus, yogurt is packed with natural enzymes that combat dandruff and help soothe an itchy scalp.
So, yes yogurt. And it’s as simple as… putting yogurt in your hair. Simply take a handful of plain yogurt, massage it into your hair, let it sit for 10-15 minutes and then wash off with your regular shampoo. Result: head-turning shine and the banishment of dry, brittle strands. Added bonus: Goodbye to frizz and flyaways.
Sounds good? Will you be trying it?
