Who can help not worrying whenever we see those thick and shiny locks anywhere!!?? Yes it is possible to stop excessive hair loss without burning a hole in your pocket, with these very simple hair care tips.
With these home remedies for hair you can stop the hair fall you must be experiencing and get that shine back in your hair.
You heard it right!! The most important hair care tip for that gorgeous hair is to first take care of what you eat. It is very rightly said, you are what you eat, and same goes for your hair. The food we eat has a great impact on the health of our hair.
Hair is protein discharge, so the most important thing to include in your diet would be quality animal protein and foods that contain vitamins and minerals required for hair growth such as folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin B, biotin, sulphur and zinc.
And yes...don't forget to drink loads of water.
Stress is said to have a very negative effect on the health of our hair as well. If you have ever noticed, when stressed one tends to have more of hair fall than usual. So as much as possible, stay away from stress. You can mediate when stressed. And take enough of your beauty sleep!!!
- OILING: Mix 2 teaspoons of olive oil with 2 teaspoon of almond oil. Now add a teaspoon of castor oil in it and mix well. Massage your scalp with this mixture for about 15 minutes. Apply this oil all over your hair till the tips.
You can leave it overnight or wash your hair after an hour with shampoo. I use Dabur Vatika Black Olive & Almond Shampoo to wash the oil away.
This will give your hair instant shine. And massaging stimulates hair follicles to increase blood flow which enhances hair growth.
Another hair care tip I would like to share here is after washing your hair with lukewarm water, take a quick wash with cold water. This will lock the moisture in.
- HAIR MASK: Avocado is an excellent moisturiser. And banana gives shine. Mix together avocado and banana to form a paste out of it. Apply this mixture on your hair and leave it for about 20 minutes.
Then rinse it off with lukewarm water and conditioner. Eggs are very rich in protein which is essential for hair growth. Beat an egg and apply it evenly over your hair. Leave it for 10 minutes and then wash it off properly with lukewarm water.
Amla contains essential fatty acids which promote hair growth along with adding shine and lustre to it. Take Amla powder and make paste by adding water into it. Then mix together little curd and apply it on your hair and leave it for 20 mins before rinsing it with water. If that seems tedious, you can opt for Dabur Amla Hair Oil instead!
- THINGS TO AVOID: Excessive Heat: Excessive heat tends to take away the moisture from your hair thus making it dry. So one should really minimise the use of blow dryers and hot irons &straighteners.
Wet hair combing: Everyone MUST wait for the hair to get dry before combing it out. And in case the wait is too long, use only a wide toothed comb once it gets a bit dry.
Split Ends: Split ends make the hair look damaged and dull. So never forget get your hair trimmed every once in a while to avoid split ends.
