We’ve listed some helpful, natural tips and tricks to help you keep your hair stronger than ever before.
Drink lots of water
Keep your body hydrated at all times. Water is not only good for your body but also good for your hair. Dehydration of the body can be a cause of hair loss. A quarter of our hair is made up of water, so when we are thirsty, our hair is also thirsty. If you do not get enough water, you may face hair loss.
Try essential oils
A few drops of essential oil can do wonders for your hair and scalp. It can increase blood circulation, fight inflammation and keep it hydrated. Lavender, rosemary and thyme are the perfect solution for fine hair and hair loss. You can make your own natural hair thickener by combining rosemary, cedarwood and sage oils. Dilute essential oils with a carrier oil such as coconut, jojoba or olive oil and massage into your scalp.
Trust the onion juice
No, you read it right. Surprisingly, applying onion juice to the hair and scalp can help stimulate hair growth. It increases collagen and keratin production and blood circulation to hair follicles. This natural remedy also restores lost shine. Just make sure you shampoo and condition after you get rid of the stink.
Wash with green tea
We all know the benefits of drinking a glass of green tea, but did you know that a glass in your hair works wonders too? Wash your hair with green tea twice or thrice a week to promote healthy hair growth. Antioxidants and vitamins in green tea soften your hair and strengthen the roots of the hair.
Use coconut oil
Coconut oil can penetrate the hair roots and protect them from excessive heat and pollution. Massage gently but vigorously with coconut oil for at least three minutes to moisturize your hair, then cover your oiled hair with a shower cap. Let it sit for thirty minutes or overnight before washing it off with a sulfate-free shampoo. However, coconut oil may not work for everyone, so if this isn’t for you, don’t lose hope.
Revitalize your hair with aloe vera
Aloe vera is a natural herbal remedy for hair loss. Aloe vera repairs and heals damaged cells in the scalp so healthy hair follicles allow hair to grow faster. You can mix aloe vera with just about anything; onion, honey, coconut oil, lemon, castor oil, mallow, shea butter, apple cider vinegar. Leave it in your hair and rinse.
Don’t underestimate a good scalp massage
Massaging your head from time to time is a surefire way to stimulate hair growth. Due to the movement and pressure of your fingers, blood flow to your scalp increases. You can massage into wet or dry hair as long as your hair is free of any product.
Gently comb your hair instead of aggressive pulling or combing. Experts say that brushing or not combing the hair too much puts it under a lot of physical stress that can cause hair breakage. When trying to detangle your hair, a wide-toothed comb will be a much better choice than a brush.
