Your hair is your crowning glory, and it is relatively common for all of us to want to improve our hair, especially if it is not to our satisfaction. However, if you plan to improve your hair’s quality, you can try out some natural remedies. These have proven benefits and can stimulate growth and simultaneously accentuate the quality of your hair growth.
So, let us get started and address these tips one by one.
All of us need to know our scalp well. When we know our scalp, it is pretty easier for us to pick the right shampoo. Further, you should wash your hair depending on the kind of scalp you have.
So, suppose you have a dry scalp, then you should avoid overwashing your hair. It can result in hair fall. On the other hand, if you do not wash oily hair three times a week, the outcome can be the same.
‘Generally, when shopping for the shampoo, everyone must ensure that the shampoo is not loaded with chemicals, such as paraben, sulfate, or silicone. These chemicals tend to make your hair brittle. Consequently, the susceptibility to breakage is higher,’ comments Rhea, an associate with MyPlumbersChoice.
A good conditioner can prove to be magical for your hair. This is because it has in it amino acids, which can help in repairing the damaged hair. Further, a conditioner is also vital to keep the hair silky, smooth, and bouncy.
Consume more protein
For the growth of newer hair, the body needs protein. So when you suffer from a dearth of protein in your diet, it can lead to protein deficiency.
Some of the dietary protein sources that you should add to your diet are:
- Lean meats
In general, your body’s protein requirement may vary based on how physically active you are and the degree of muscle mass you may have.
Increasing the iron intake
Iron is a vital nutrient required by our body for effective hair growth. Some of the excellent iron sources that you can add to your diet are:
- Pumpkin seeds
- Lean beef
- White beans
Some manufacturers also fortify the food with iron. It means that they add iron to it. Those who do not consume meat have meat requirements, which are as much as 1.8 times compared to meat-eaters. It is because the body does not absorb the non-animal iron sources as efficiently.
‘There is no better home remedy than aloe vera at boosting hair growth. Aloe vera is also incredibly effective at lowering the scalp problems, such as itchiness or flakiness,’ comments Rosy who works with RazorHood.
Aloe vera is slightly alkaline, but it works incredibly well to restore the scalp’s natural pH levels. It can also help cure dandruff. Moreover, aloe vera helps amplify the hair growth by penetrating deep into the scalp.
How to use aloe vera? Take a leaf or a stalk of aloe vera, and extract the pulp from it. Apply aloe vera directly to the scalp and the hair, and leave it for about forty-five minutes. After this, you can wash it off with regular water. Repeat approximately three or four times in a week, and you will be surprised by the results.
Methi or Fenugreek seeds is one home remedy I swear by when it comes to preventing hair loss,’ comments Jessie, an associate with PassionateRunners.
Well, that’s correct. Let us explain how fenugreek works. Fenugreek directly targets the hair follicles and boosts hair regrowth. It is an excellent source of nicotinic acid and proteins.
Moreover, the fenugreek seeds also boost the hair shaft, leaving you with long, shiny, and supple hair. What do you need?
Just a cup of fenugreek seed.
You can soak the seeds overnight in water, and then the following day, grind the seeds. You will get a fine paste from the seeds.
You can apply the paste directly onto your scalp and hair and then cover it with a shower cap. This can ensure that the paste stays moist. The paste has to be left on the scalp for about half-hour.
Then you can wash your hair with regular water. Please do not use shampoo after it. You can repeat this two times a week for four weeks. This can help you keep hair fall in check.
Do not brush your hair while still wet
When your hair is wet, it can be pretty weak. Thus, it is recommended not to brush your hair while it is wet, as that can accelerate your chances of hair loss.
However, if you do comb your wet hair, it is advised to use a wide-toothed comb. Further, do not brush your hair more than three times a day. It can increase hair loss and might even injure your hair. If you see tangles, use your fingers to untangle them.
Rub green tea on your hair
‘I have started using green tea, and it has helped me grow my hair so well,’ shares Mia, an associate representative with TrueBlueFishermen.
Yes, there are actual studies suggesting that using green tea on the hair can curtail your hair loss issues. All you have to do is take two brew green tea bags and put them in a cup full of water. Let it cool for a while, and then you can apply it to your hair. After an hour you can wash your hair with water. For best results, consider regularly using for ten days.
Last and indeed, the most important natural remedy to boost hair growth is massaging your scalp. It can help promote hair growth. You need to massage your hair with coconut oil or any other oil of your choice. Alternatively, you can even use a chemical-free hair mask. Massaging your hair stimulates the scalp. It also boosts the thickness of the hair and helps relieve tension and stress. Studies suggest that while you massage the hair, stretching forces are employed, which can stimulate thickness and growth in the derma
