Although astrologists assert that hair is a kind of hook that links a person with Cosmos, hair condition depends more on our care than on celestial bodies which move in the sky.
Hair is one of main embroideries for females and every woman wants to keep it healthy and good looking. That’s why we hope for suggestions of both specialists in this field and those women whose beauty and attractive hair cause delight and slight envy. Celebrities at the podium, show business and movie stars do not make a secret from hair care methods, so why don’t we use their tips.
Surely, we would be naïve thinking that chic and gloss of their curls depend on home-made masks and lotions. Celebrities can use the best line of professional hair products and ask for care of individual hair-dressers and stylists, but some recipes and tips are quite good and are worth of being added to the set of hair care methods at home.
Recipes from celebrities

Ingredients: 2 yolks, ¼ cup with honey, 25 grams of rum. 25 grams of apple vinegar diluted in a cup of water are needed for rinsing.
At first, warm honey (so that it gets liquid) and cool it off and apply it on hair roots. Beat up yolks with rum and apply this mousse on hair from roots to tips. After that, put on shower cap and stay with a mask for some 20 minutes. Then wash off it with warm water. You can use a soft shampoo. Finally, rinse hair with apple vinegar solution.

- Sophia Loren also can’t do without olive oil.
Loren says that her beauty is the result of her love to life, spaghetti and olive oil. She makes applications from this oil on hair roots in few hours before washing it. Olive oil not only contains useful nutrients, but is also easily absorbed by hair follicles and nourishes hair from inside. As a result, she has glossy and set hair in far not young age…regardless of all experiments with hair styles and its colors during her actress career. Sophie also adds a healthy way of life to her beauty secrets, such as a sound 9-hour sleep, physical exercises and morning walk. She drinks enough mineral water per day too (up to 2 liters). Food also matters: one yogurt a day with a spoonful of beer yeast ensures firm skin and help hair preserve its healthy natural gloss.

- Julia Roberts chooses mayonnaise masks.
Indeed, mayonnaise (if it is natural) is a very useful product as it is made of yolks, vegetable oil and mustard powder. All these ingredients and each of them taken separately really favor hair growth. Leave this mayonnaise mask on your hair for twenty-thirty minutes. During this time scalp and hair bulbs will absorb all necessary nutrients (as much as possible).
- Molly Sims, an American actress and top model, calls avocado her favorite conditioner.
She mashes one ripe avocado fruit and coats her dry hair with it. Molly leaves this mask for twenty minutes and then shampoos it thoroughly.
- Melissa Joan Hart confesses that she adores lavender fragrance.
She coats her hair with lavender oil every day, taking special care of tips. Melissa believes that this application makes her hair healthy, obedient and sweet-scented. And she is right because this natural product really improves hair condition, gives it shine and strength, stimulates its growth, reduces breakage and loss of hair. Besides that lavender is a good cure for dandruff. To improve hair growth rub warmed lavender oil with massage movements into your scalp 20 minutes before shampooing it.
- Top model Linda Evangelista is undoubtedly one of brightest celebrities at the podium.
In order to save her hair from aftereffects of frequent coloring, Linda is applying curative mud masks. Such mud cures are universal nutrients that saturate scalp with minerals from the Dead Sea. Natural mud favors improvement of hair and scalp. Such a mask is applied from roots to tips and is washed off after 15 minutes.
- American actress and singer Scarlett Johansson pays great attention to hair condition and treats it protectively, especially when it comes to dyeing.
That’s why a stylist applies argan oil on her strands and scalp before hair coloring and after that adds few drops of this oil to the mixture to soften an aggressive effect of hair dye.
Surely, argan oil is very valuable and expensive. This natural product is thought to penetrate deep into skin and influences it not only at the epidermis level, but also on the derma layer by saturating scalp and hair bulbs. Argan oil gives hair strength, softness and elasticity. It prevents it from falling out, restores brittle and damaged tips, and removes scalp dryness.
By the way, as sparing coloring as possible is the main tendency for celebrities in hair care. Also, they pay special attention to shampooing products. That’s why Monica Belucci chooses shampoo for damaged and brittle hair Shampooing Reviviscence (Leonor Greyl) and a moistening conditioner with argan oil and flax seeds for thin hair Olioseta (Oro del Marocco). Ever young Sophia Loren uses only shampoo for kids considering it one of main reasons for keeping hair beautiful, and Angelina Jolie colorizes her hair with the help of Aveda products (it’s one of the least harmful tints nowadays).
But unlike home-made means of hair care and improvement which are more or less universal, finished cosmetics is strictly intended to a certain hair type and is aimed at solving a particular problem. So, when it comes to buying some product (especially from a professional hair care line) it is better to consider your hair and suggestions of specialists rather than tips of celebrities, even though they are very beautiful and favorite.
