Along with having balanced diet, you must use these tried & tested home remedies to have healthy-looking long hair.
To see the visible results on your hair, use these home remedies continuously for at least 1-2 months. You can unleash the remaining home remedies at here.
Amla (Indian Gooseberry)
Amla is fully equipped with anti-oxidants and Vitamin C to improve the quality of our hair. It is an age-old remedy which has been used by our forefathers also.
Mix 2 teaspoons of amla powder with 4-5 teaspoons of curd (plain yoghurt). Apply this mixture on your hair for half an hour every time before hair wash.
Fenugreek seeds are rich in proteins, Vitamin C, iron, potassium, nicotinic acid and lecithin. The primary purpose of nicotinic acid and lecithin is to promote hair growth and strengthen hair follicles.
All you need to do is, mix fenugreek seeds (in powdered form) with olive oil and leaving this concoction on your hair for 15-20 minutes.
Our hair is comprised of keratin bonds and sulphur acts as a cement to strengthen these keratin bonds. Onions being high in sulphur, nourish our hair.
For this quick remedy, apply onion juice onto the scalp with the help of cotton and leave it on your hair for 30-45 minutes. You can also mix some coconut oil to hydrate your hair. Onion juice dries out our hair. That’s why I recommend you to apply this juice only on your scalp.
Castor oil is very much beneficial for hair thickening and hair growth. It is high in Ricinoleic acid (an essential amino acid required by our body) & Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids (which can easily penetrate through the pores).
You will need to mix one part of castor oil with two parts of olive or almond oil. Apply this oil mixture on your scalp and full-length of hair. Massaging afterwards gently with your fingertips allows your blood to circulate on the scalp.
Castor oil is very much thick in consistency. Applying it solely on our hair weighs them down which leads to hair fall. This is the reason behind mixing it with any other hair-friendly oil. Organic and Black castor oil are the purest forms of this oil.
Lemon Juice & Neem Leaves
If you are suffering from dandruff, lemon juice and neem leaves can cure it very effectively to give you healthy looking hair. Dead skin cells on the scalp cause dandruff and itching, block pores on the scalp and lead to hair loss.
Blend some neem leaves according to your hair length to have a smooth fine paste. Mix it with 2 teaspoons full of lemon juice. Leave this mixture on your scalp and hair for 30 minutes before wash.
