Let’s face it… dry and brittle hair is not so pretty!
WHAT IF there were natural ways that could ignite that shine you once had, rejuvenate your dead ends and give you that overall healthy hair feeling?
Don’t stress pretty girl! Here’s what you can try:
The foremost natural way to keep those hairlocks bright and healthy is to eat a balanced diet. We suggest three nutritionally balanced meals a day, and each meal should contain carbs, proteins, vitamins and minerals in it. Food items such as whole grains, green leafy vegetables, carrots, citrus fruits, eggs, mushrooms, cheese and avocado should be a part of it.
When you rinse your hair with warm water, it can often leave it looking frizzy and dry. Next time you wash your hair, try rinsing your hair with cold water to avoid that not so cute frizz look. This may be daunting in the winter, so keep a cup of cold water aside and pour it over your hair after your washed and rinsed (whilst still in a nice hot shower of course!).
Hot oil massage
Oiling your hair twice a week helps with reconditioning, returning that silky and revitalized feeling back. Heat up three tablespoons of unrefined coconut oil or organic olive oil (you can also take half quantity of each and mix them). Daub it onto the scalp and massage well using your fingertips. Cloak your hair with a towel for twenty minutes to half an hour. Lastly, cleanse your hair using a mild shampoo.
Honey retains the shine and softness of the hair with its moisture-retaining properties. Mix two tablespoons of honey in two cups of hot water. Keep this mixture in a spray bottle and then mist it on the roots. Massage well and leave it there for 15 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water.
Yoghurt is a natural deep conditioner for hair. It takes care of possible infectious and bacterial issues for the scalp. Apply enough to cover the entire scalp and the hair till the ends. Use a mild shampoo to rinse it off after 30 minutes.
Hair health largely depends on the amount of protein it receives. Eggs are an incredible source. Take an egg, add a drop of olive oil and honey. Mix and rub in on the scalp and the hair length thoroughly. Wash off using a mild shampoo after 30 minutes.
Did you know that a harsh brushing technique leads to breakage? Brushing your hair methodically twice a day is advised, as it allows increased blood circulation and lets them breathe. Having said that, there are a couple of things that you should know. Firstly, if you start brushing your hair from the top, the brush will end up having tangled hair more than you had expected. Always start from the ends, and then gradually work your way up to the scalp. Secondly, wet hair is fragile and prone to breakage, wait for your hair to dry and then brush it Thirdly, wash your brush at the end of every week. Lastly, you don’t have to brush your hair a thousand times. Ten to fifteen strokes at a time would be plenty!
Tips on Daily Hair Care Regime:
Protect your hair from sunlight, rainwater and gusty winds.
Always read the ingredients before buying a hair product, especially conditioners and serums. Opt for products loaded with organic or natural ingredients.
Get your hair trimmed every fourth or sixth week.
Air dry hair after a shower, and avoid handling them coarsely with towels.
Try to use heat-less hairstyling tools (yes pretties, stay away from hair straighteners!!)
Let your hair lose and out of ponytails or buns for some time each day.
Keep yourself hydrated.
