Hot oil treatment: Natural oils are amazing remedy when it comes to treating hair. Oils not only repair rough, crisp hair, but also strengthen it, preventing further damage. For dry hair, oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil and almond oil all are particularly proved to be miraculous. They can be used either individually or together as a blend. In order to enhance the effect of these oils, a few drops of lemon, lavender, rosemary, chamomile, sage, carrot, or yarrow essential oil are also sometimes added to the mixture. For normal-length hair, heat four tablespoons of oil over low heat in a saucepan until it is lukewarm, massage your hair from the roots to the tips. Covering it with a hot towel will open the pores and help absorb the oil. Afterwards, leave for twenty minutes or overnight. Wash your hair normally.

Using-Aloe-Vera-for-Hair-GrowthAloe Vera: Aloe Vera prevents dandruff and hair loss while restoring the shine and moisture of hair. Cut leaves from the Aloe Vera plant, ensure that a sharp knife is used when carefully removing the skin, scrape out as much jelly as possible. Take three to four tablespoons of this jelly and mix 1 ½ tablespoon of coconut oil and 3 tablespoons of yoghurt with it, apply the mixture to the hair and leave for about twenty to thirty minutes. Wash with shampoo when done.

Coconut milk treatment: This treatment can be done using ingredients in your kitchen and it really softens the hair.

  • A can of coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoonful of honey
  • 2 tablespoonful of coconut oil or any other oil of your choice
  • 4 tablespoonful plain organic yoghurt
  • The juice of one lime
  • Cornstarch to thicken

Mix all of the ingredients except for the cornstarch in a bowl thoroughly, slowly add cornstarch a half teaspoon at a time until the mixture thickens to your liking to avoid application from being a runny mess. Then apply to freshly washed hair in sections, leave it in for 30 minutes then use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to rinse it out and style your hair like you usually do.coconut oil

Therefore, foods such as fish, walnuts, spinach, blueberries, dairy products, lentils, eggs, which contain zinc, biotin, vitamin A, C and E, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid are highly recommended. Drinking lots of water will also help in removing various toxins from the body, thus preventing dryness from occurring.

Avocado and Banana Hair Mask: When mixed together, these two fruits make the perfect treatment for damaged hair.

Apply the mixture to the scalp and hair thoroughly, leave for approximately thirty to sixty minutes. Ensure that the hair is covered and afterwards, wash with warm water.
