Rumour has it that strawberries have magical powers as a natural conditioner creating strong and shiny hair minus the chemicals. To get the most out of them The Home Remedy Shop recommends that you mash seven or eight strawberries with some mayonnaise and blend them together to form a paste which you can then smear onto your hair. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with your ordinary shampoo. Or you could give Clairol Hair Food Strawberry Ginger Root Clarifying Shampoo a whirl if you don’t fancy all that prep work.
Meanwhile, the balance between being effective and gentle is a tricky one for anyone wanting to soothe irritated skin. So Beauty Banter recommends a DIY Strawberry and Honey Mask. The ingredients are said to reduce blackheads, ease acne, heal flair ups and tighten pores, all thanks to the alpha hydroxyl acids, vitamin C and antioxidants that they contain. Alternatively, for a shop-bought variant, try Aromatherapy Associates Anti-Ageing Overnight Repair Mask complete with strawberry extract.
For the times when you can’t sit around luxuriating in your face mask however, and want a quick and easy way to brighten and tighten those pores, Brit + Co recommends a scrub made from almond oil, strawberries and sugar. The problem is deciding how much to eat and how much to put on your skin, but we will leave that to your discretion. If the temptation is too much then perhaps take a look at the Body Shop’s Strawberry Body Polish instead.
