Most of us desire long hair like Rapunzel. But owing to our hectic, modern lifestyle, which includes everyday stress and pollution, long hair can be difficult to achieve. Don’t worry. There are many home remedies for thick and long hair. We have the perfect solution for your problem – Here are 7 Simple things that you can do from the comfort of your home to get Long hair.
Home Remedies for Long Hair
A good, healthy diet is important if you want to have long, problem free hair. Include green leafy vegetables and fruits as part of your diet. Also, make sure you are getting enough proteins in your daily diet to help with hair growth. Include sprouts, nuts, and curd in your diet.
Hot Oil Massage:
We can never deny the importance of a good hot oil head massage, which is one of the best known tips for long hair. We know a good ‘champi’ is the best thing that can happen to our hair. Get it done at the parlour, by your mom/ sister, or do it yourself. After applying hot (warm) oil on the scalp, gently massage the scalp with your finger-pads. Also, apply oil to the strands of the hair. Let them soak in the goodness of the oil. You may also wrap a hot towel around the head for 10 minutes to help better absorption of the oil into the hair. Wash off after 1-2 hours, with a mild shampoo. You will note evident results post your first usage. Almond oil, olive oil and coconut oil are considered good for the hair.
Trim Your Hair:
Trim the hair regularly. Even when you are letting your hair grow to a certain length, trimming them every 4-6 weeks is essential to promote the growth of healthy hair. Trimming ensures that all the damaged ends are removed, and you will be left with damage free hair which will grow fast.
Brush your hair twice a day with a natural-bristled brush. Remember to brush your hair before bed time. This will ensure that the blood circulation to thescalp is good at bed-time (we all know that our hair grows the most while we are sleeping).
Do Not Comb Wet Hair:
Water and Exercise:
