Beauty lies in….healthy hair!

When it comes to hair, there are 2 things I worry about most ; growth and it being healthy.

Today however iv chosen to focus on natural home remedies that promote hair growth, some which I personally use and some that I intend to start trying out.

We often want quick results but like everything else. Patiences is key. The normal advise given is still encouraged. Regular trims. Diet. WATER!!! Excercise and a folic acid tablet a day won’t harm and is great for healthy nails and hair.

But!

1. Did you know that onion juice is good for hair growth. The high levels of sulphur promote hair growth as it is important in the hair growing phases.

You will need 3-4 onion. Grate them and squeeze the juice out. Apply is to your entire head. Get it into that scalp and massage . Leave for an hour and wash and rinse with a mild shampoo.

2. Castor oil…yeap if you’re from where I’m from. We don’t have good memories of castor oil…but we can change that now because castor oil is also very good for hair growth. If you can, try getting Jamaican black castor oil.

Castor oil can be used on the scalp to help prevent and remedy hair loss and it is effective at this for several reasons. It’s antibacterial and anti fungal properties make it beneficial against follliculitus, dandruff and scalp infections and its ricinoleic acid content helps increase circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth. Warm it up and apply and massage. Wrap with satin scarf or cling wrap. Apply some heat and leave for an hour or even over night. Wash and rinse with mild shampoo.

3. Natural oils.
I mix these oils and keep in a bottle and use to style or as a hot oil treatment.

I mix olive oil. Castor oil. Mint oil. Coconut oil. Amlah oil. Almond oil and I add methi seeds. You can mix them at all equal parts in an old moisturizer bottle and use as you need. It’s nice to massage into the scalp.

4. You can also use egg white with a tsp of honey and a tsp of olive oil to make a mask.

Mix all together, apply and leave for an hour. I generally do these when I’m cleaning and by the time I’m done and ready to shower, the mask has had enough time to set in

Hope you guys enjoy. Easy. Cost effective and gives you results. Remember to be consistent .
