If only we all were born with Rapunzel’s curse/blessing that gave her those long luscious locks with tensile strength. Alas! That is just a fairytale and in reality, we have to put in a lot of efforts to maintain our mane. Our hair care has so many hurdles that make it difficult for the millennials to find that one product that can deal with all of their hairy woes.
Some have oily roots but dry strands; some have weak hair while others cannot control the fizziness. Just one product is not enough for the locks which have to deal with pollution, sun and chemicals at one go. If you haven’t found a perfect product for your hair, you can stop biting your nails as we have some amazing oil remedies which are perfect for individuals with various hair conditions.
If you have really dry and frizzy hair with no visible sign of shine and lustre, you should indulge in hot oil therapy. Warm 2 part olive oil with one part jojoba oil and apply them on your strands. Both jojoba and olive oil have high moisturising and hydrating properties. You can apply the mixture on your hair overnight and wash off with shampoo in the morning. This oil mixture can do wonders for hair that has been damaged because of excessive use of chemicals.
P.S. Do not apply the mix on the already oily scalp.
Hair loss is one thing that can hit men and women of any age. Stress and pollution can cause irreversible damage to your hair. If you are tired of a drain clogged with hair, mix some castor oil and onion juice and apply it on your scalp. Both the ingredients are known for their regenerative properties. Just keep the mix on your scalp for 30 minutes and rinse using a mild shampoo. Your hair will grow back in no time.
Hair breakage can happen due to various reasons. One of the most common ones is the poor blood circulation in the scalp. Rosehip oil stimulates cell division which promotes strong hair follicle. In addition to that, apple cider vinegar helps to keep any bacteria or other fungal infection away from the scalp. Just apply a mix of rosehip oil and apple cider vinegar on your roots and strands an hour before you wash your hair.
Coconut oil is the most common ingredient of everyone’s hair care routine. Next time, mix it with some fresh aloe vera gel and apply it all over your scalp and hair. This mixture will sooth your roots and work against dandruff or any other agent that causes itchiness. This mix will keep your scalp healthy and hair shiny.
Amla is rich in Vitamin C which makes it excellent for hair. Exposure to the sun can fade the natural colour of your hair. The quickest way to hide it is to colour your hair but the better way would be to treat it using natural ingredients. Warm some coconut oil and mix amla powder in it. Let the ingredients blend with each other overnight. Strain the mix and apply it on your scalp and strands. The colour of your hair will darken.
Though oiling has its merits like stimulating blood circulation, helping the hair absorb nutrients better, increasing the hair growth rate and many more, it is recommended not to use it more than once a week. Coconut oil, black seed oil, castor oil, olive oil, lavender oil, almond oil are the best hair oils for the thick hair growth.
Hair loss is one of the biggest nightmares for every woman. To tackle hair loss, castor hair oil, olive oil, sesame oil, lavender oil, peppermint oil, rosemary oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil are some oils that can really fasten up hair growth.
Coconut oil has wide uses and benefits. It helps in the deep conditioning of hair, can be used as a daily detangler, can be used to remove dandruff, can be used as a base for hair colouring, can be used for faster hair growth and to protect hair from sun damage.
If you think that the products that come in a bottle do little justice to your hair, try making your own hair care tonic that works on your hair type and is completely free of chemicals. These DIY hair oil tricks are not only easy but light on the pocket too. Give these home remedies a try and we are sure that you and everyone else will fall in love with your gorgeous hair.
