Are you too fed up of trying those expensive shampoos and hair products but not getting the desired results? Have you done everything you read over the internet and still are unable to make your hair healthy and beautiful? Then, we would suggest that you are not following the instructions carefully!
Home remedies and caring tips are for your own benefits, but following them carefully and properly is extremely important if you wish to achieve the desired results.
Here are some tips that you can follow to get amazingly beautiful and healthy hair, without having to spend your money on useful and harmful chemical-infused products, at home.
1. AVOID TAKING HOT WATER SHOWERS
Using too much hot water destroys the quality of your hair and makes them brittle & dry. Hot water strips all the essential oils from your scalp and damages your hair. Instead, take shower with lukewarm water or better if you use cold water, especially while washing your hair.
2. AVOID WASHING YOUR HAIR FREQUENTLY
Washing your hair everyday will make them dry, no matter how good quality of shampoo you are using. If you have an itchy and oily scalp, then wash your hair every 2-3 days, because it will regulate the natural oils in your scalp and keep your hair healthy.
3. AVOID BRUSHING WET HAIR
Wet hair is 3 times weaker and more vulnerable than the dry hair, more likely to get broken easily if you brush them. Instead, if you are in a hurry, then towel-dry your hair and use a wide-tooth wooden comb to detangle your hair strands.
4. AVOID TYING TOO TIGHT PONYTAIL
Tight ponytails might make you look good and comfortable to wear, but they also make your hair brittle and weak from the roots, pulling them harder and causing damage in the process. So, avoid tying your hair in too tight ponytails.
5. PROTECT YOUR HAIR BEFORE YOU GO FOR A SWIM
The harsh chemicals present in the pool water are not only harmful to your skin but also for your hair as well. You just have to apply a little amount of a good hair conditioner to your hair, before jumping into the pool. This will protect your hair from the damage that direct contact of chemicals would cause.
6. APPLY MASK FOR SOFT & SHINY HAIR
Mix 2-3 tablespoons of honey in one cup of your regular hair conditioner, and apply this mixture after shampooing your hair. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes and wash off thoroughly for smooth and shiny hair.
7. USE THIS MASK FOR HEALTHY AND BOUNCY HAIR
Take equal amounts of water and apple cider vinegar and mix them well together to form a solution. Apply a little amount of this mixture and leave it on for 5 minutes. Rinse off with shampoo to get rid of the pungent smell of the vinegar.
8. BID GOODBYE TO YOUR DULL HAIR FOREVER
After you are done with the final rinse, apply 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in your hair properly. DO NOT wash your hair after that. Towel dry and then say hello to the healthy and shiny hair.
9. FOLLOW PROPER BRUSHING TECHNIQUE
Avoid using plastic combs or brushes with plastic bristles, and start using wooden combs or brushes, to prevent your hair from producing static and breaking down in the process. The appropriate way of detangling hair is to start detangling from the tips part and then start combing from the roots to the tips with long strokes.
10. TAKE APPROPRIATE MEASURES FOR CLEANLINESS
It is very important to keep your scalp clean and healthy in order to keep your hair healthy and strong. Avoid letting dandruff and itchy scalp destroy the good quality of your hair.
