These really will give you stronger, shinier, longer hair. Get ready for envy-inducing stares, thanks to your shampoo-commercial locks!
1. Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse
Make an apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinse by adding 75 ml of ACV to a liter of water (you can store it in a bottle). Once you’ve shampooed and conditioned your mane, pour a cup of the rinse over your hair. It will help cleanse your scalp thoroughly, make your hair shinier, and boost growth. You can try it as often as you like.
Yes, it’s normal to cringe at the smell… But trust us, it won’t stay in your hair. Cut a few slices of onions and either mash them or grate them to get the juice. Apply it to your scalp for about 10 to 15 minutes before washing off with your shampoo. The sulfur in onions accelerates collagen-production in tissues, which will definitely boost hair growth.
3. Get Egg-cited!
An egg white mask is a great way to kickstart growth since eggs are so rich in proteins, sulfur, iron and zinc. You can use egg whites on their own or mix them with a teaspoon each of olive oil and honey for extra moisturizing power. Apply it on your scalp and all over your hair for a good 20 minutes. Rinse with cool water and shampoo like you usually do.
Don’t bother with store-bought coconut milk. Instead, extract the milk from a fresh coconut at home. You can use it as it is or squeeze the juice of half a lemon into it and add a drop of olive oil (or even lavender oil) to it. Apply the mix onto your scalp and leave it on for a few hours or even overnight before rinsing it out. We already know that coconuts are an age-old miracle worker when it comes to long and strong hair.
5. Go Castor Oil
Castor oil is known to be a hero for healthy hair growth. It has antifungal and antibacterial properties that combat any scalp issues that come in the way of hair growth. It’s also a rich source of fatty acids, proteins and nutrients that help moisturize and strengthen hair shafts - promoting growth. A castor oil head massage is a great way to relax as well as to get the hair you always dreamt of. Even better – heat the oil first, and then give yourself a massage for super soft strands.
Green tea is super rich in antioxidants, which is why it’s such a healthy beverage. This is also a big reason for why it helps your hair grow long and strong. Pour warm green tea over your head and leave it in for about an hour before rinsing off.
7. All About Amla
Indian gooseberry is rich in nutrients to accelerate hair growth. All you need to do is mix a bit of amla powder or juice with equal amounts of lemon juice and apply the paste to your scalp. Let it dry and rinse off.
There are plenty of awesome oils that can work wonders on your mane. Vitamin E oil, argan oil, lavender oil, rosemary oil, jojoba oil are some that will give you noticeable results. They have super hydrating properties and are rich in nutrients to give you soft, strong strands. Massage them into your scalp (mix them with a few drops of coconut oil or olive oil) and leave on for a few hours before rinsing off.
