Want your hair to grow longer, thicker, healthier and stronger? Following are a few inexpensive tips you can follow, that will not only give your hair grow longer and thicker, but also help you repair the damage and make it lustrous and soft all over again.
Getting a haircut does not necessarily mean chopping off half your hair. Go for trimming-sessions every three months. You’ll see that not only does your hair grow faster, but also does the quality of your hair improve while the split-ends start going away. But if your hair is damaged beyond repair, it either needs extensive treatment or simply, cut it off! It’s hair. It will grow back. Keeping long damaged hair will only result in increased hair-fall, which you must absolutely avoid.
Plait your hair:
Plaiting and braiding your hair will keep it from tangling up and prevent any breakages. Some claim it helps in hair growth, some say it doesn’t. But it certainly helps keep your hair from flying, accumulating dirt, tangling up and breaking. Condition or oil your hair well before braiding or plaiting which is quite inexpensive. Don’t make it too tight, for it will cause headaches.
Cut pieces of onions or grate them and mix with your shampoo. If you don’t like the odor of onions, mix it with a shampoo which has a smell that is overpowering enough. Let this mixture stay for 15 days, while it absorbs the vitamins. When you apply it, you will notice your scalp infections, itchiness, dandruff have all decreased, and hair-growth and blood circulation have increased.
Got a few expired contraceptive pills lying around? Crush the pills and mix them in your shampoo. For they contain Progesterone, which is the hormone that is responsible for hair-growth and prevention of hair-fall. It’s an expensive method if you have to purchase 10-15 birth control pills for this purpose though.
Oil your hair:
Coconut oil is the best for your hair. Use lots and lots of coconut oil, it’s your hair’s favorite food!
Warm the oil first, and apply it all over your hair and scalp. Let the hot oil settle in while you get other work done. You can keep it on overnight or wash it off after the completion of 2 hours. Oiling your hair helps you detangle your hair easily. You can use other types of oils too, like castor oil, rosemary oil, almond oil, etc. You can apply these on your eyebrows and eyelashes too for the purpose of hair-growth.
Aloe Vera products are made of natural, Aloe Vera ingredients. Brands like Patanjali are selling an increased number of such herbal products for the skin and hair which you can purchase. Such products will not have any side-effects and will naturally repair your hair and skin.
Coffee repairs your hair from the roots, helps in the blood circulation and retention of moisture. What’s better, it’s inexpensive. It gives a luster to your hair, making it glossy and brownish, due to the color of caffeine. There are many products consisting of caffeine as the key ingredient, but coffee when applied directly to scalp is the most effective.
