Spending too much on expensive shampoos and conditioners, trying to protect your hair is common. But are you getting the desired results that you see in ads? There is indeed no shortage of exotic oils and flowers in your hair care products, but only a handful of natural ingredients can make your hair healthier. Today, allow us to list down four natural ingredients that are so powerful to give that strength and lustre to your hair.
Protein is essential, not only to your body but also to your hair. And what is the most common and readily available protein source? The Egg. Use the entire egg to condition your hair. If you have dry or brittle hair, use egg whites to moisturize your hair. Use 1/2 cup of any egg mixture (egg white, entire egg) and apply to clean damp hair. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with cold water. Try this, one of the most basic, yet effective hair care tips, and notice the change.
P.S. Don't forget to wash your hair post this treatment. :P
If we start listing the uses of honey, the list may never end. Honey is really good, not just for your body or skin, but also at hydrating your hair. But it is tricky since there are different kinds of honey in the market. Go for pure honey that sticks to damaged areas of hair to hydrate them without feeling sticky. Diluting pure honey in warm water also makes for one effective DIY dandruff remedy. Using it every day works wonders in clearing up itchiness, flakiness, and a few other scalp conditions.
3. Coconut Oil
It is preferred to wash your hair every 2-3 days, for the proper regulation of natural hair oils. Most natural oils sit on top of your hair, making your hair lustrous. But coconut oil goes one step further. Coconut oil makes your hair stronger from the inside out. It decreases the protein loss caused by brushing and blow-drying. If your hair is dry, it is preferred to apply coconut oil twice a week to retain the moisture in.
This one is a little strange because it is something we usually see in sushi, but new research shows that seaweed may help control oily scalp. Studies say that seaweed has the power to stimulate hair-growth-promoting hormones in as little as two weeks. New products are emerging in the market with seaweed in their ingredients and there may be seaweed serums booming for hair loss treatment soon. But if you want to buy any hair care product with seaweed in it, look for it to come in around number 4 or 5 in the ingredient list.
Start applying these ingredients in any DIY hair care mixtures or go for products that have these ingredients listed in them, to flaunt your hair like the models do...
