Make Hair Grow Faster with Natural Homemade Treatments
Hair Care Need Not be Expensive
Who doesn’t want thick, shiny, gorgeous hair? Everyone does, and this is why we see all kinds of hair care products in the supermarkets and drugstores everywhere – shampoos, conditioners, oils, waxes and creams. Some products are effective and some aren’t but those that promise quick results are usually way beyond what we can afford.
Luckily. there are hair care solutions that we can make ourselves, from inexpensive ingredients that are readily available in the groceries and in our gardens. All it takes is a few mixing procedures and you’re all set to make your own natural hair loss remedy.
Hair Solution Suggestions
Here are some hair solutions that you might want to try out at home:
- Coconut Milk and Coconut Oil
Extract milk from fresh coconut and sieve through a fine cloth. Apply the milk to your scalp and leave on for 2 hours and then rinse with water. Since coconut contains oil, rinsing with just water will make your hail oily. If you want to avoid this, you can use a mild shampoo when rinsing. A friend of mine combines her coconut milk with fresh aloe vera gel for a more effective mixture.
For coconut oil, you can make your own or you can buy a bottle of virgin coconut oil (VCO) from health food stores. Apply the oil on your hair and massage using gentle, circular strokes. Leave on for about 2 hours and shampoo off. I like to use conditioner after shampooing when I put coconut oil on my hair because it makes my hair very soft. If you have brittle hair, you can strengthen it by leaving the coconut oil on your hair overnight twice a week.
- Onion and Rum
These two food and drink ingredients are not only for your stomach, they are also good for your hair. Chop up a piece of medium-sized onion and put them into a cup of rum. Leave this mixture to combine overnight. The next day, strain out the sliced onion pieces and massage the liquid into your scalp. When done regularly, this will stimulate hair growth and cure hair loss.
- Sesame and Olive Oils
Mix equal parts of sesame oil and olive oil and apply to your hair. Leave on for about thirty minutes and rinse with a mild shampoo. If you make this a weekly routine, you will have very thick and shiny hair. This oil combination prevents hair fall and grey hair.
- Celery and Mint
Put a bunch of celery and mint leaves in a pot of water and boil it for 20 minutes. Strain out the leaves and let it cool. Rinse your hair with this concoction everyday to make your hair roots strong and stop hair loss.
- Egg and Brandy
Beat a whole egg into a cup of brandy and mix well. Apply the mixture on the scalp and massage for about 5 minutes. Leave it on for an hour and rinse with a mild shampoo. This mixture promotes hair growth and arrests hair loss.
Mayonnaise contains egg which is rich in protein, a mineral very beneficial to the hair. Use any store-bought mayonnaise and apply directly to hair and leave on for at least an hour. Rinse off with a mild shampoo. You might have to apply shampoo more than once to remove the odor of the mayonnaise from your hair. Regular application makes your hair healthy and shiny.
