Inflexible work ours can undoubtedly bring you down along with your hair. But do not fear as there are a range of options to keep your beautiful mane in place. Make a few changes and add a few natural remedies to bring back your strong and beautiful hair.
Here are 10 amazing and simple tips to prevent hair fall without causing a huge dent in your pocket.
1 Put away the hair dryer and straightners
I know you have heard this before. However, you might think, “I have so much to do and so many places to run to. How do I dry my hair and give it a wonderful straight look?” But trust me in this! Being natural and letting your hair be is one of the best gifts you can give it.
Your hair was meant to be that way. As Lady Gaga say, “Baby, you were born this way.” Artificial straightening processes do more harm than good. Constantly using a dryer will have the same effect.
When you go to a salon and straighten your hair, you are not only diminishing its quality but also spending a lot of money in exchange of losing the quality of your hair and making it fall by exposing yourself to harmful UV rays. In addition to hair fall, it might also cause dryness.
2 Say “no” to bleach and hair color
I am going to harp on the ‘keep it natural’ argument again and here’s why. Bleaching and coloring takes away the moisture from your hair. It causes the hair to enlarge and separate from the cuticle scales. This makes the hair very porous. The weakness will eventually lead to hair fall. Unnatural agents can also cause burning and discoloration.
3 Coconut oil: On to better things
Now let’s save your hair and for this you must use coconut oil. It is one of the best and most full proof solutions to keep your hair in place. Coconut oil is a storehouse of natural benefits. It conditions your hair and makes it grow. It is rich in proteins and minerals and contains iron and potassium. Here’s what you have to do:
Warm up some coconut oil. Not too much and apply it from your root to tips and massage your hair and scalp thoroughly with it.
You should ideally keep it overnight for best results but keeping it for an hour or two will decently do the trick.
Simply wash it with shampoo and watch it become the guardian of your locks and prevent hair loss.
4 Use Amla on your hair
You all have heard about the amazing effects of Vitamin C. Well, amla has got it. Using Amla will definitely reduce hair loss. This is what you can do:
You can use amla juice or mix it with another rich source of Vitamin C, lemon juice. Put it on your scalp and give it time to dry. After this, rinse your hair with lukewarm water, Repeat it 2-3 times a week for best results.
5 Use methi or fenugreek
Methi contains copper, iron, zinc, calcium and other minerals that promote hair growth. It contains lecithin which helps to add nutrition to your hair follicles and decreases hair loss. You must have noticed how most hair oils and other hair products contain methi. Now you can use it directly. Here is what you have to do:
Take 2 teaspoons of methi seeds and soak it in a cup of water. Leave this overnight.
In the morning, grind it and make a paste out of it.
Massage this paste on your scalp and keep it for 30 minutes.
Wash it off with shampoo and watch it reduce hair fall on regular application.
Here come the minerals again. Eggs have selenium, phosphorus, iodine, zinc and a lot of protein. Here’s how you use it.
Take the egg white from one egg. Take a teaspoon of olive oil and mix it with the egg white.
Beat it till it comes to a paste like consistency and apply it on your hair and scalp
Let it stay for around 15-20 minutes and then rinse it off with shampoo.
Collagen production is increased by onion juice which is a rich source of sulphur. Here’s how you can use it.
Take one onion and chop it finely. Squeeze out its juice.
Directly apply the juice on your scalp and let it rest there for 15 minutes.
Rinse it normally with shampoo.
Repeat this twice a week for best results.
This flower not only nourishes hair but also treats hair problems such as dandruff and definitely controls hair fall. Here’s what you can do:
Make a paste with hibiscus. Crush a few flowers and mix coconut oil or sesame with it.
Put it on your hair and let it rest for a few hours.
Again, rinse it off with shampoo.
9 Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera can be used as a simple conditioner for great hair health. It helps to maintain the pH balance of your hair and keeps it hydrated. Here’s what you have to do:
Take 120gms of Aloe Vera gel and the same amount of water and mix it in a bowl with a spoon.
Pour this mix in a spray bottle and add an essential oil of your choice and shake it.
You can spray this on your hair once in a while.
10 De-stress your tress
As I mentioned earlier, stress can be a leading cause of hair loss. Try to meditate and relax in order to keep your stress levels in check. Engage in things you like and you will naturally be nice to your hair.
So, here were a few remedies to keep your prized possession-your hair where it belongs.
