However, with the excessive use of chemicals, poor diet and pollution in the environment, many of us are left to deal with damaged hair and the worst of all, hair fall!
We all dread to see our hair strands falling out on your brush. or on the pillow covers and also whenever you run your fingers through your head. It seems like your hair it everywhere but on your head! If that’s the case for you, then there’s no need to panic just yet.
A little self-care and dedication can be your saviour. To get that healthy and shiny lock of hair, simply follow these tips below for at least 8 weeks and see the difference!
1. Regularly Massage Your Scalp with Essential Oils
Essential oils do wonder in keeping your hair healthy. Essential oils such as Almond oil and Lavender oil helps in fighting hair fall and hair problems such as dandruff. Just make sure you dilute essential oils or mix them with carrier oils for a great result!
2. Wash Your Hair Frequently
You must have heard that washing your hair daily makes them weak and brittle but that’s a myth! Not washing your hair regularly causes oil to accumulate and buildup on the scalp which can cause dandruff and bacteria to form which can damage the hair and even impede the ability to grow.
3. Make a Habit of Taking Vitamins
In this busy lifestyle, we often rely on fast food or have a poor diet. Since having a healthy diet is highly important to maintain the health of your skin and hair, you can make up for those by taking vitamins. Vitamin A, Biotin, Zinc, and B Vitamins are great to give life to your hair and skin.
4. Have a Diet Enriched with Protein and B12
Of course, consuming these naturally is much better so we recommend taking time out and planning your meals. Protein and B12 nutrients are super important to improve the health of your nerves and maintain your red blood cell production. If you feel your hair lack shine and are dry and brittle, you could be low on protein and B12. Try to have foods that are rich in protein and b-12 such as lean meat, fish, spinach and eggs.
5. Avoid Brushing Wet Hair
Even though the urge is strong to brush your hair while it’s still wet and easily detangle it, but, it is terrible for your hair! Your hair is the weakest when they’re wet and tugging and brushing them after a shower causes them to break easily from the roots and cause split ends.
6. Use Onion Juice or Ginger Juice for Hair Growth and Shine
Another way to help your hair grow and give it more volume is by following home remedies! And using onion juice and ginger juice is an excellent way of getting those luscious locks. Onion and ginger juice is rich in antioxidants which help in improving blood circulation and strengthen the hair follicles making it a great way to keep your hair from falling.
7. Trim Hair After Every 2/3 Months
If you style your hair too much or dye them then this one is important for you to follow. Not trimming your hair can cause split ends and brittle ends. No matter how much you want to grow your hair, trimming is important to keep your hair from tangling and breaking.
8. Deep Condition at least Once a Month
With the harsh environment and the scorching sun, our hair loses its moisture that keeps it shiny and gives it a soft and silky feel. Which is why to give life to your hair, make sure you deep conditioning your hair once a month. You can either do this at home with using an egg and oil mask or get it done from a professional.
9. Oil Your Hair Overnight Weekly
Oh yes, all the times our grandmothers were after us to oil our hair, we know it’s worth now! Oiling your hair stimulates hair growth, nourishes it, and keeps it healthy. Oils such as mustard oil, amla oil, olive oil and or coconut oil are classics for hair growth. You can even mix them and keep it overnight to make sure your hair gets nourished properly!
10. Use a Sulfate-Free Shampoo
Sulfate or SLS is a major ingredient in shampoos which causes the lather and bubbles to form in the shampoo. However, this chemical rips off the natural oils from your scalp and make them dry and frizzy, especially, if you don’t use a conditioner. So, if you’re experiencing a lot of hair fall, switch to a sulfate-free shampoo.
11. Stay Hydrated
Now last but not the least, stay hydrated! Not having enough water intake is the main reason why your skin and hair feel dull and dry. Make sure you drink a minimum of 8 to 9 glasses of water and keep your fluid intake high to stay healthy!
