Hello everyone I hope everyone is having a good hair day! Our hair has seen us through our best days, and our worst. From when we first learned how to straighten it, curl it, crimp it, braid it…this list goes go on and on… but at times we have been worried and cried when seeing our hair fall and damaged. But with all the extra time at home during this lockdown, there’s never been a better opportunity to show your hair some love. If you’re wondering where to start, try out the following ways to nourish your hair back to its healthiest best.
- Watch what you eat
Eating healthily will ensure that your hair remains in a good condition. Fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, protein such as fish and chicken, and lean red meat will be appreciated by your hair as well as your body. And include plenty of water in your diet. Drinking the recommended 6 to 8 glasses of water a day will keep your skin and hair properly hydrated. And will boost your follicles’ growth potential.

- Focus on your Scalp
A clean scalp will promote good cell turnover and promote a healthy environment for optimal hair growth. Just like anti-aging skincare, exfoliation of the scalp is important to remove dead skin cells from around the follicle and promote a healthy follicle. Although the scientific evidence isn’t substantial, many believe that taking a fish oil supplement can help promote hair growth and prevent hair loss.
#TIPS: Be Gentle…
- Nurture the Frizz
The most common culprit for frizzy hair is a substance that seems innocuous: water. The porous nature of hair enables it to absorb moisture from the environment. When this happens in excess, it causes expansion of the cushiony end cuticle layer, which lifts cuticle scales away from the axis of the hair, making the surface rough and unruly. Using conditioners that have good emollients in them will help make your cuticle layer smoother and will make it more hydrophobic so that it will be less susceptible to water from the environment. We can always choose Natural Products over any other Products including harmful chemicals.
#TIP: Maintain your Nourishment level. Sometimes Natural Conditioner can work as to leave on conditioner too.
- Oiling is the Key
Make sure to oil your hair at least once a week and since you are locked inside your home, why not oil more maybe twice a week. So why not choose an Ayurveda recipe passed down generations, BhringAmla Oil is a blend of 15 medicinal herbs (Jadi Buti), including Bhringraj and Amla that keep hair strong & scalp healthy. Often called a miraculous elixir for the hair, this 100% natural formula controls hair loss, prevents premature graying, and reduces dandruff. Mama earth BhringAmla Oil is prepared with the traditional ‘Kshirpak Vidhi’ – an ancient and esoteric Ayurveda process. ‘Kshira’ or milk is combined with different herbs in a process that requires patience and precision.
#TIP: Put Oil into the roots and scalp not just the hair and massage in the circular motion.
- Delay your wash day
As far as washing is concerned, research has proved that it’s better to go as many days as possible without washing. Since we are facing Lockdown, you can be lazy while washing your hair. Also choosing the right Shampoo is the most crucial step. Hair Expert advice not to use a single brand for shampoo in long run.

- Nighttime hair care routine
You should be maintaining your hair care routine to ensure that your luscious tresses remain healthy. One of the most damaging things that can affect your hair is leaving it to toss and turn throughout the night. All you will need to do is make sure that you pop your hair up before bed. Now, while that may sound like an easy task, it is important to make sure that you put up your hair to make morning styling easy and to ensure that you are not further damaging your hair.

#TIP: Keep your styling for the day and care for your hair during sleep.
- Love your long hair
Getting your hair cut regularly will help keep it healthy. If you never cut your hair, it probably still wouldn’t grow to a point where you would be walking on it. That’s because each hair grows an average of six inches per year, and stops growing, and is shed within two to six years. You love your long hair
#TIP: Visit Your Hair Saloon once in a while and have a professional hand in your hair.
This may sound obvious but it is possible to damage your hair by incorrect or too forceful brushing. Don’t brush wet hair but if have to then use a comb instead. You may not know this, but detangling your hair from the roots to the ends can create more knots and ultimately lead to more breakage. The correct way to go about it is to start a few inches above the ends and brush downwards, slowly working your way up to the scalp.
#TIP: Detangle your hair in the shower with a wide-toothed comb while there’s conditioner in it. This is when your hair is soft and malleable, thus making it easier and less painful to detangle it.
