Natural hair care tips for healthy growth


Long and silky hair are a dream of many. But, many of us end up cutting it short because of the hair fall that follow.But there are some home remedies that can help.

We can’t emphasise enough on the importance of oiling long hair regularly. One can use coconut, almond, mustard or even olive oil. Massage it into the scalp and leave it overnight. Wash with a mild shampoo in the morning. However, if you have an oily skin, oil your hair and leave it for an hour and then wash off. One can wrap a hot towel around the head for 10 minutes to help in the better absorption of the oil.

If one reason why you don’t want to sport long hair is because they fall, use aloe vera. It soothes the scalp and conditions hair. It reduces dandruff and unblock hair follicles that may be blocked by excess oil. You can apply pure aloe vera gel to your scalp and hair a few times a week.

Apply a mask made of egg; it is an excellent source of protein, which helps your hair grow longer. Just crack open two eggs, strain the yolks and use the egg white on your hair. Let it stay for 20 minutes and wash off.
