If you wish to have longer and more luscious hair, read about these simple tricks from India.
1. Aloe Vera Gel
Indians have been using the benefits of aloe Vera for over 4,000 years. The aloe Vera gel is rich in over 20 vitamins such as vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E etc. Some of these vitamins improve the blood circulation in the scalp, thus stimulating hair growth. Aloe Vera also contains glycoproteins and polysaccharides. They stimulate hair growth and help fight pattern baldness caused by malnutrition, stress, or other temporary factors.
Scoop the gel from a raw aloe Vera leaf, and blend it until smooth. Then, rub it throughout your entire scalp.
2. Cold Water Wash
Washing your hair with very hot water opens the follicles wide, thus removing the nutrients and oil that your hair need to grow. On the other hand, if you wash your hair with cold water, your follicles won’t open and your hair will not lose vital nutrients.
3. Egg Mask
Eggs contain a lot of proteins which stimulate hair growth and provide moisture. Moreover, proteins help your hair strengthen and grow long. To make your own egg mask you will need some fresh eggs and some probiotic yogurt. This mask will heal your damaged hair, and it will act as a thickening agent.
Crack open two fresh eggs in a bowl. Use only the egg whites if your hair is naturally oily, but if it’s dry, use the whole egg. Then, add 4 tablespoons of probiotic yogurt, and mix well. Apply the mixture throughout your entire hair, and allow it to act for 20 minutes before rinsing it off with cold water.
4. Essential Oils
Essential oils can be used for hair growth treatments. It is best to use tea tree, chamomile, and cypress oil. You can combine them as you wish or mix them with other ‘base’ oils such as coconut or olive oil. Add 6 drops of the essential oil per ounce of base oil. Then, rub it throughout your hair and allow it to act for around half an hour. After that, rinse thoroughly .
After you have tried these trick, you will forget about the commercial hair products found in shops because they are not only expensive, but they also contain harmful chemicals.
