Written by Indrani Karmakar  • 

Breakups hurt, but not as much as seeing precious strands of hair fall out every day, and that too without even touching it! It is a blessing to be endowed with naturally beautiful hair, and the shinier and healthier your hair is, the more it boosts your self-esteem. Although it may look simple when someone flaunts gorgeous hair, nothing can be achieved until you put in the time and effort. Even if you have a hectic schedule and poor hair health, you may still regain your locks if you pamper your hair with the right products. Here is how to put health back in your hair with the help of some natural home ingredients.

Castor oil has been used in cosmetic products for millennia. It is one of the most essential elements for thickening hair naturally. It is rich in omega fatty acids and the best hair moisturizer to pamper your dry hair. In addition, the anti-inflammatory characteristics may help fight infections and specific scalp disorders such as flaky skin, dandruff, and irritants (1).

How To Use It

Pure cold-pressed castor oil can be used to massage your head.

2. Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil is one of nature’s best-kept secrets for healthy scalp and gorgeous tresses. You may use it to feed fatty acids to your hair because of its antimicrobial properties. In addition, damaged hair cuticles may be improved by massaging almond oil into your hair and scalp (2).

How To Use It

Massage the almond cold-pressed oil into your scalp while your hair is still damp. Begin at the crown and go down until the entire head is covered. Next, place a shower cap over your head and let it soak for 30 minutes. Then, use a gentle shampoo to rinse it off.

3. Onion Oil

Onion hair treatment may seem strange at first, but it works very well. Its juice may strengthen and add volume to the hair (3). Finally, one of the most critical facets of the hair protein, keratin, is the sulfur found in small and juicy onions. It may revive the lost elasticity and protect your hair from breakage.

How To Use It

A regular application of onion oil is recommended. You can add onion juice directly to your hair roots. Make sure you shampoo and let it air out to remove the stench.

4. Keratin And Wheat Protein

Neem is also called the “miracle plant” because of its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. This is what has made it so popular in traditional medicine. Using neem and sage daily may improve the condition of the scalp and hair. The vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, K, and A and numerous minerals (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium) are all found in this plant (5). Neem is used as a natural remedy for dandruff, itching, dryness, and hair loss.

How To Use It

Your hair should be sprayed with water and properly moisturized before starting the treatment. Start at the scalp and work your way down to the ends of your hair with the neem hair mask. Finger comb the top of the hair to ensure that the mask is evenly distributed among the strands. Allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. After completely rinsing it with water, apply the gentle neem shampoo.

Weak hair can be disheartening, and each time your hair falls off, a part of your happiness goes with it. But the good news is that these natural ingredients will bring life back to your hair. If getting these ingredients in their raw form is impossible, pick out powdered products from reliable brands. Make sure you pamper your hair well and give it the nutrients to grow and shine.
