“It doesn’t matter if your life is perfect as long as your hair color is!” – Stacy Snapp Killian
Want body, bushy hair that can withstand any hairstyle and weather change? Ever think about adding shine and texture to crinkly, rough hair? Tired of cleaning your hairbrush and stressed about hair fall? If the answer to any of the above is a yes, then this article is for YOU.
Firstly, you have to understand that hair fall can occur due to many reasons be it stress, aging, poor diet or any other bodily or environmental issue. It is important to know what is causing the hair to weaken and fall. For doing that, it is recommended that you visit a doctor who can identify the issue.
Here are some easy home remedies to help you fight hair fall:
1) Oil your scalp
Oiling your scalp is probably the best thing you can do for your hair. Massage your hair with the tips of your fingers when you apply oil and leave it for an hour or more for good results. Practice this weekly and experiment with different oils based on your preference. (Fun fact: Warm your oil before the application as hair absorbs the oil better when it’s warmer!)
2) Change your diet
Your hair is a part of your body and as the bones and muscles, it too needs a specific amount of nutrients to stay in its best health. It is vital to eat a balanced diet with an adequate amount of proteins, natural juices, and vitamins. (Fun fact: Sugary foods are a big no-no as they dehydrate your scalp and leave your hair looking bristly.)
3) Get plenty of sleep
An insufficient amount of sleep has shown to have a negative impact on the growth and the overall look of one’s hair. On average, an adult should get 7-9 hours of sleep. (Fun fact: Hair is the fastest growing tissue in the body after bone marrow)
4) Jog away your worries
Take your hair on a morning outing five times a week. Let the fresh breeze move through the strands and let nature do its work. Yoga and meditation are known to improve hair growth. (Fun Fact: Stress induces hair fall. Sweat your stress out!)
5) Change your shampoo
Schedule an appointment with a hair specialist in your area who can take a good look at your scalp. It is important to know what type of scalp you have so that you can use a shampoo and conditioner accordingly. Using a wrong shampoo can result in hair fall, dandruff, itchy scalp, and even greasy hair.
6) Give your hair the break they deserve
Styling your hair by using chemical infused creams and hair styling products very often can damage your hair in the long run. If you can’t resist, be sure to use healthy hair treatments to repair and protect your hair.
Your hair is a unique aspect of your body and probably the first thing people notice about your appearance so it is only fair to look after it!
