Hair Care

HairCare1

Hello Beautiful Ladies…!!!

Many of you have been asking for a hair care regime, remedies for premature greying of hair, hair fall, split ends, tips for long and lustrous hair.

I had dealt with hair fall problem couple of years back. I’ll share my experience of how my hair fall has stopped and how I follow a strict regime.

Reasons for Hair fall:

  1. Lack of protein
  2. Physical & Mental stress
  3. Pregnancy
  4. Heredity
  5. Hormonal imbalances
  6. Thyroid
  7. Vitamin B deficiency
  8. Loss of immunity
  9. Drastic weight loss
  10. Chemotherapy
  11. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
  12. Over styling
  13. Ageing
  14. Steroids

Now, you have to give time for yourself and your hair. There is one Oil which has worked amazing for me i.e. JOJOBA OIL. This was recommended for me by one of my best friend who was also dealing with hair fall.  And it worked for both of us so, I am sure it would work for you guys as well. ARGON OIL also works wonders for your hair and helps repairing dull, damaged, dry hair and split ends. CASTOR OIL helps in thickening the hair strands.

Jojoba oil helps in bringing life back to your hair strands and repair the scalp and hair follicle to regenerate healthy hair. It contains vitamin B and E that help in conditioning and hydrating your hair.jojoba_oil_2

Argon oil is also referred as Miracle oil or Liquid Gold. It is an intensive repair treatment which helps in improving elasticity of dry, brittle, frizzy hair and also repair damaged tresses, split ends and further breakage of hair.

Moroccan oil – The Original

Castor oil thickens hair, reduces frizz, prevents thinning, and scalp infections. It is very thick in consistency so it has to be mixed with other oils. The ratio depends on the consistency u wish to have for your oil, the oil is very greasy so it takes time to wash off all the oil. If it’s not washed completely it weighs down your hair. So, be patient while washing it off.375872a

LONG HAIR TIPS:

  1. Apply oil to your hair and massgae your hair for good 10 mins by using inversion method. That is put all your hair down and bend forward and then massage your hair. This helps in circulation of blood inversely and promotes more hair growth.
  2. You can take Biotin tablets but use tablets prescribed by your dermatologist.
  3. Argon oil and jojoba oil helps in boosting hair growth
  4. Green tea help boosting metabolism, and this helps in hair growth.

Tips:

  • If shampoo doesn’t lather do not panic, that means its sulphates free shampoo and its good for your hair.
  • Shampoos which do not lather also cleans up your hair
  • If you have dandruff because of acne or vice-versa please consult doctor **
  • Oil your hair at least 2-3 times per week***
  • You must use a conditioner every time after you shampoo your hair.*
  • Do not apply conditioners to your scalp*
  • Take small amount of conditioner or else it will weigh down your hair
  • Use hair serums to detangle your hair if your hair is curly and frizzy/unmanageable.
  • If your ends are too dry and frizzy apply conditioner first from mid length towards down, do not wash off your conditioner and then apply shampoo.**
  • Do not use harsh shampoos*
  • Use homemade masks/hair conditioning masks at least 1-2 times per week
  • Use heat protectants definitely before you use any heating tools.*
  • Detangle your hair before using any styling techniques
  • Do not try to detangle wet hair.
  • Air drying your hair is the best method to avoid hair damage rather than towel drying or blow drying.
  • Do not set heating tools on maximum temperature.
  • If you have gone through any hair treatments like hair re-bonding, keratin treatment, smoothening, perming, highlighting, global coloring, permanent straightening etc. kindly use the products mentioned by the hair stylist.**
  • After getting above treatments done do not go for swimming, beaches, use soft water for hair wash, water should be Luke warm only(for even untreated hair).
  • Drink plenty of water, because it helps in retaining moisture
  • You can wash your hair daily but you have to use mild shampoo with pH not more than 5.5.**
  • Trim your hair regularly once in 3-4 months
  • Switch hair products so that your hair doesn’t get used to same one.
  • Use satin pillow covers for reducing friction in hair.
  • Eat vitamin B rich foods.
  • Shampoos can be harsh when you apply them directly to your scalp, so you need to dilute them with water and then use it on the wet scalp.*
  • Use vitamin E capsules oil and apply to scalp and massage for atleast 10 minutes.

***All the products mentioned above are used by me, and I had no side effects after using them.

***Pregnant ladies and heart attack patients consult your dermatologists before using these products.

***Even after using these products and methods if you still find dandruff, hair fall, damage then you must visit a dermatologist or trichologist.

*** Most of the products can be found out of India except patanjali aloevera gel, nyassa jojoba oil and Aloe veda castor oil. These products can be found easily in other brands though out the world.
