5 Hair care tips for maintaining healthy hair
Haircare is an essential part in the grooming process, although healthy hair does not come that easily. We are all aware of the mixed advice that we get from our relatives, acquaintances or the shampooists of the salon. Like Mother would say “Oil your hair” while most of the shampooists would advise getting a “hair spa” or other modern treatments available. To help you get out of the confusion we got you 5 different tips that allow you to take care of your hair best.
Tip 1 : Maintain nutritious diet.
1) Consume protein-rich food like eggs.
2) Spinach and other dark leafy greens for Iron.
3) Citrus Fruits to Get Your Dose of Vitamin C
4) Nuts and Seeds for Omega-3 Fatty Acids
5) Whole Grains to Obtain Biotin
6) Carrots are Rich in Vitamin A
7) Avocado Offers Vitamin E
Tip 2 : Use natural hair masks.
As we are aware there is a natural solution for every possible problem. So here are few easy to make DIY masks for all your hair related problems.
1. Egg, curd and mustard oil -
If you have dry hair, this oil is the best thing you can try. Eggs are rich in vitamin A, B12, D and E, fatty acids and protein. The protein helps strengthen the roots, the fatty acids make it a natural hair conditioner and B12 helps add volume.
2. Avocado and peppermint oil -
Mash some avocado, add a drop or two of peppermint oil and apply this mask on your hair. Leave it in for 15-20 minutes and wash off for silky smooth hair.
3. Olive oil, coconut oil and egg -
This mask encourages speedy hair growth. Warm 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, let it cool, add one or two eggs and two tablespoons of olive oil and apply.
Tip 3 : Warm oil massages.
A conditioner might work wonders for your hair but oil gives it certain minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acids that don't just strengthen your roots but also boost overall health of your hair. Coconut oil comes most recommended by hair experts and mothers! It can protect your hair from sun damage, dandruff and removes sebum build-up from hair follicles accelerating hair growth. You could also boil some curry leaves in coconut oil, strain the oil and apply. You could also use Chinese hibiscus flowers instead of curry leaves.
Tip 4 : Get rid of them damaged ends.
Trims are important because they cut split ends off so they don't climb up the hair and cause more split ends. Trimming your hair every few weeks will help you to get rid of those brown and rough split ends. Cut about 1/4th an inch of your hair every 6 to 8 weeks to avoid the split ends to grow out again.
Tip 5 : Deep Conditioning.
Even though you condition your hair after every wash, nothing quite works as good as deep conditioning. Every once in a while wash your hair with shampoo, squeeze out the extra water and towel dry it. Then take generous amounts of conditioner and apply it right to the root of your hair. Use a broad toothed comb and run it through your hair to make sure the conditioner reaches everywhere. Now, pull them up and clip them together. Leave the conditioner in for anywhere between 10 minutes to an hour. Pull them down, rinse thoroughly and enjoy silky smooth hair.
