Unfortunately, only a few women dedicate some time to natural hair care. All the rest rely on expensive, chemical-based products for quick fixes and shortcuts. The fact is that all women want beautiful, long hair.
Ladies, yes, the world is fast-paced. But it would help if you accepted that intense and long hair doesn’t grow overnight. Remember to be patient and follow natural remedies and ways to achieve healthy, long hair. To avoid hair damage, here is a list of preventive measures that should be strictly followed:
Wash hair moderately:
To pamper your hair, you must be consistent. Natural hair masks can help repair the damage to the hair and heal it naturally. Here are a few easy-to-prepare natural hair masks one can make at home.
Washing your hair is indeed essential, but only when you need to. This statement says washing hair too often or daily can make it dry and brittle. The scalp produces sebum every time you wash your hair. If the scalp is regularly cleaned, it will have more sebum. As a result, they should wash their hair more frequently. To avoid this damaging cycle, only wash your hair twice or three times a week, depending on the need.
Using sulfate-free shampoos:
Sulfate, a common ingredient, produces more foam than other mild detergents. Sulfate-rich shampoos can dry out hair cuticles, making them more prone to damage and breakage. It is therefore recommended to use sulfate-free shampoos. These are made up of mild detergents, which are gentle on hair. Vatika’s Brave and Beautiful Shampoo is a mild shampoo that contains natural herbs and extracts.
Conditioning hair is just as important as washing hair. By conditioning hair with a good conditioner, you can lock in moisture and make it smooth and soft. While applying conditioner to your hair, make sure you only use it at the ends or tips of your hair. Avoid contact with your scalp.
When you use blow dryers to dry your hair quickly, they become dry and remove the natural oils and moisture from them. Blow dryers, and other professional equipment, expose hair to a high-heat environment that is bad for hair. After a few blow-drying sessions, hair becomes brittle and sensitive.
Don’t do wet combing:
In a hurry, women get used to combing their wet hair. It is not suitable for hair. The hydrogen bonds are broken in the hair when you comb damp hair. In many cases, this causes hair to become weaker and more prone to breaking. Avoid combing wet hair and allow it to dry naturally.
Avoid hair coloring:
Everyone loves to style or color their hair. All these practices, however, are damaging to the hair. Ammonia and peroxide are in all types of hair dyes. This changes the pH level of the hair, causing it to change color. Hair color containing ammonia or peroxide breaks down the proteins in hair shafts, making them weak and brittle. Hair color can cause hair loss. Try to avoid hair dyeing and instead look for natural alternatives.
Trim regularly to maintain a trim look.
Although most people’s logic is against this tip, it’s true that regular trimming can help increase hair growth. Trimming the hair every three months is essential to eliminate damaged hair and ends. If you don’t cut your hair regularly and think it will grow longer, the hair will eventually become damaged and dry.
There are many benefits to massaging your hair with essential oils or regular hair oils such as Dabur Coconut Oil. Oil massage has many benefits. It provides deep nourishment for hair, conditions the hair naturally, and protects them from external damage. It also increases blood circulation, essential for the supply of nutrients and vitamins.
Do not wash your hair in hot water.
Avoid washing your hair with boiling water. Use warm or lukewarm to wash your hair instead. Warm water opens the hair cuticles, allowing the shampoo and conditioner to seep into the hair and do their job. Pouring cold water afterward can help seal the moisture in the conditioner, making your hair healthy and shiny. Wash your hair first with warm water, then rinse it off with cold water to strengthen and strengthen your hair. You can use this mixture to rinse your hair if you don’t like cold water. Add one cup of apple cider vinegar and two cups of warm water. This will not only condition your scalp but also stop dandruff.
Drink lots of water to stay hydrated:
Hair loss and dehydration are closely related. When you do not provide enough water to your body, this leads to hair loss and thinning. A dehydrated scalp leads to damaged, dull and brittle hair. Water, around 2 liters per day, is suitable for your hair and body. The water also helps stimulate the regrowth of healthy and strong hair and stops frequent loss and hair breakage.
After showering, avoid tying your hair tightly and wrapping it up in a towel.
A tight ponytail can lead to hair breakage, fall, and baldness. French knots, buns, and ponytails may make you look good, but they can cause excessive hair loss, breakage, and fall. If you tighten your hair, it is pulled in a single direction. This can lead to damage, such as bald patches and alopecia. Avoid using rubber bands and tie your hair loosely. Use a cloth band instead.
When your hair is wet, it can break or fall if you tie your hair up in a towel. When hair is wet, it’s most vulnerable. Any pressure can cause them to snap and fall. Instead of wrapping them in a damp towel or tying them up, let them air dry to avoid damage.
Stress levels are low:
Stress is one of the many factors that can lead to hair loss. Stress can weaken hair follicles, and even the slightest pull on them will cause them to break and fall. Stress can cause three hair loss types: alopecia areata, telogen effluvium, and trichotillomania. Try to avoid this situation by improving your mood. Eat a healthy diet, do yoga or meditation, and follow a nutritious diet.
Hair care at home:
Hair will grow healthier the more a person believes and uses home remedies. Natural ingredients in home remedies have hair-friendly properties, which help to increase hair growth naturally. Coconut milk is an excellent example of a home remedy that can be used for hair care. Coconut milk can be used to condition hair and promote hair growth. Coconut milk also improves the texture of your hair. Take fresh coconut milk and gently massage it onto the scalp. After using coconut oil, rinse your hair with ice-cold water.
Improve your hair health with a better diet.
What one eats will ultimately reflect in their hair and beauty. A proper diet is the key to healthy hair. Add more fruits and vegetables to your daily diet. Include rice and grains rich in vitamins, fiber, and nutrients. Coconuts and cashews are two good foods to increase hair growth. The liquid is also needed to keep the body well-hydrated. To keep the body hydrated, drinking a lot of water is essential. Water keeps the hair soft and moist.
