As we all know that the monsoon season is around the corner, it’s time to pay some attention to your hair. Just forget about the expensive chemical hair products and use natural remedies. It’s a fact that there’s nothing more beneficial than natural products for hair growth.
When it comes to the hair composition, it is made up of Keratin (a protein produced in the hair follicles). Follicles produce new hair cells, and the old ones are pushed out at the rate of about 6-inches a year through the surface of the skin.
The interesting fact is that the hair you see is a skin of dead keratin cells and an average adult has approximately 120,000 to 160,000 hair strands. Also, an average person loses up to 90 hairs a day. Thus, if you see a few broken hairs on your hairbrush; that’s not an alarming sign, though! Here, in this article, I am going to enlist some tips and tricks for encouraging natural hair growth.
1. Onion Juice
Using the onion juice for hair growth is one of the oldest and effective remedies so far. The juice contains the sulphur, which initiates the production of collagen in the tissues and helps to re-grow your hair. I know, it has a strong, pungent smell, but you don’t need to worry at all. It goes off after rinsing once.
Let’s get started by slicing an onion in half and squeezing out its juice. You can also smash it or grate it. Now apply it on the scalp and let it absorb for 10 to 15 minutes. Afterwards, you can rinse it off with a mild shampoo. Certainly, it works like magic on your hair. You can also use the potato juice instead of onion juice. It works the same way.
2. Coconut Milk
“Coconut milk is quite an effective remedy used for the natural hair growth as it’s rich in potassium, iron and essential fats,” said by Chairperson, Blossom Kochhar Group of Companies, Dr Blossom Kochhar.
To use it on your hair, just take out the coconut milk from a fresh coconut, add some drops of lemon juice and lavender essential oil (about four drops). Mix all ingredients thoroughly and put the paste on your scalp. Now let it absorb for 4 to 5 hours and then rinse off.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar is extremely helpful in the scalp cleansing and also helps to maintain the pH balance of your hair, thus accelerating hair growth.
Take one-litre water and add the 75ml of Apple Cider vinegar and apply this solution on your scalp after washing your hair with shampoo. It will boost the hair growth and also adds shine to it.
4. Make your Egg Mask
As a matter of fact, the egg mask recipe is being used all over the globe to accelerate the hair growth.
Eggs constitute a vast quantity of proteins that are extremely beneficial for the hair formation. It also contains zinc, sulphur, iron, phosphorous, iodine and selenium.
5. Green Tea
Green Tea is another excellent natural remedy for hair growth as its super-rich in antioxidants. It also prevents hair loss. Now you don’t need to throw away any used tea bags. Just take the warm green tea from the used tea bag and apply it on your scalp. Leave it for almost 1 hour and then rinse it off with cold water.
6. Indian Gooseberry (Amla)
Amla or Indian Gooseberry is known as a magical fruit which contains a lot of nutrients. It contains high-level of Vitamin C, which helps to boost the hair growth.
Just take two teaspoons of amla juice or powder and add an equal amount of lime juice in it. Now apply it on your scalp and leave it for half an hour and then wash off with warm water.
