Listen to Grandma
First and foremost remember what Grandma always said? Oiling is good. Yes indeed, oil provides your hair with the nourishment it needs to grow thicker and longer. Oil is a must at least once a week if you want those long lustrous locks. If you want to make hair thicker and look more bouncy, then you need to nourtish them and pamper the stands with good oil massages and warm towel treatments.
Cleanliness is Key
Make sure to use a light shampoo and conditioner and nothing loaded with chemicals. Clean your hair regularly and massage your scalp well while shampooing to activate the roots. Also ensure that there is not too much product build up in the hair as this can tend to weigh it down. Once a week, lightly rub a lemon on your scalp to rid it off any settled particles or chemicals. This is the key to how to make your hair roots strong. This will also help remove any dandruff because of the acidic nature of the lemon, and make the hair thicker and stronger.
Aloe Gel is a great moisturising and cleansing agent. When applied to the scalp it treats the dryness and helps overcome the brittleness of the hair, leading to more nourished, healthy and thicker hair.
Chop up some onions and rub it onto the scalp, so the juice is absorbed. The onion juice contains sulphur, which is said to promote healthy hair growth naturally. But do wash it off after a while or the pungent smell will remain.
Green tea is rich in antioxidants, which heal the system from within. Not only is it good for overall health, but it also promotes hair growth. Drink 2-3 cups of green tea daily to boost your metabolism and improve hair growth and quality. You can also rinse your hair with green tea once in a while to get a direct benefit. This mill make your hair grow faster too.
Take some honey and rub it onto the scalp. It will act as a natural moisturiser and will be soaked in by the scalp and the hair shaft. This will not only leave your hair looking smooth and shiny, it will also give you good volume and encourage faster hair growth.
A bad diet directly affects your hair’s health. Maintaining a good diet, full of good protein is important to promote hair growth. Ensure that you include foods rich in proteins such as meats, fish, lentils, green leafy vegetables and milk in your daily diet. This will help your hair grow long and strong.
Did you know that one of the leading causes of hair fall and hair thinning is stress? When your mind is under stress, it is your head that is directly affected. You may even experience headaches. But what we tend to ignore is that stress can also cause your hair to start falling out. Make sure to meditate every day and keep yourself calm from within. This will go a long way in helping your body, your mind and most importantly your hair to grow and shine.
