Hair is a jewelry for a woman, and not any jewelry, but the most expensive and the most visible one. Our hair represents who we are, it can tell a lot about our personality. Some have it long, others have it short, but any woman wants to have a great hairstyle all the time. Men also like girls with beautiful hair.
Black Tea Use:
Would someone like a cup of tea? You better want some, as the black tea not only has health benefits but also skin and hair benefits. However, if you are drinking black tea regularly, you should try another use of it besides drinking it. Black tea is rich in antioxidants and caffeine which stimulate the hair growth and prevent the hair loss, making the locks elastic, shiny and bright. Due to its dark color, it acts as a natural hair dye, and you can cover your gray hair and fading hair color. If you are a brunette and you have some gray strands that embarrass you, don’t despair. The black tea dye will help you out. Also, the caffeine contained in the black tea reduces the production of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), a hormone which causes hair loss. You should definitely try out this treatment, it’s very easy. For this purpose, you can use either tea bags or tea leaves. Prepare a very strong tea, by boiling the tea leaves in water. Let the tea cool down to room temperature and rinse your hair with this liquid. Cover your head with a towel and wait for about 2-3 hours for the tea and hair enter in reaction. Rinse off with cold water. Repeat this action on a daily basis and your hair will be unrecognizable.
Henna is amazing for this purpose. It is a natural dye that can be used without any harm to the health or skin and can be used as many times as we want. Henna is a herb used in the Indian culture and many people know it with the name Mehendi. Since antiquity, this plant was used as dye for the skin, hair, nails as well as silk, wool and leather. I bet you have seen girls that have temporary tattoos on their hands. These beautiful drawings are performed with henna. These drawings can be of different colors, meaning that additional color was added to the henna. The real natural henna is reddish. But there are solutions for blonds and brunettes as well. You just need to mix the henna with other natural herbs and obtain the desired color. Henna has amazing effects on our hair. It provides the hair with vitamins and is one of the most effective conditioners. Mix the henna with water and apply this paste on your hair for about 2 hours. Better to do this before taking a bath. Wash your hair and enjoy the amazing visible results.
Aloe Vera Wonders:
A whole industry is based on aloe vera. That’s the beauty industry, of course. Many of us have this plant on the windowsill or in the garden, and we can make our own beauty products with their leaves. The aloe vera gel is made up of around 96% water, some organic and inorganic compounds, a type of protein which contains 18 of the 20 amino acids found in the body and lastly, Vitamin A, B, C and E. Also, this plant contains proteolytic enzymes, which repair the dead skin cells on the scalp. It is a great conditioner and makes your hair smooth and shiny. Aloe vera promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair. Moreover, aloe vera contains something similar to keratin and it rejuvenates the hair with its own nutrients, giving it more elasticity and preventing breakage. You can make an aloe vera hair mask at home, combining the aloe vera gel with oils, like wheat germ oil and coconut milk, you strengthen your hair, stimulate the hair growth and replace the gray strands with healthy ones. All you need is some aloe vera gel and oil, like coconut oil, mix the ingredients and massage your scalp. Leave overnight and rinse in the morning. Enjoy the great effects.
Increase Vitamin Intake:
For long and strong hair, we need to consume food that contains the vitamins which promote hair growth. Remember, your hair won’t get gray as soon as you have a healthy diet and lead an active lifestyle. You should consume more vitamin C, B vitamins such as Biotin (Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H) and Niacin (Vitamin B3), vitamin B12 and other that are found in food. First of all, we need to consume more fruits and vegetables, seeds and dairy products in order to replenish the need for vitamins in our body. As we take medicines when we get sick, why shouldn’t our hair be treated with the care it deserves? However, it is quite difficult to consume the whole amount of vitamins needed at once. This is why there are different dietary supplements that will help with this issue. There are a lot of brands on the market, I won’t recommend anything, but you research the market, compare opinions and find that brand that suits your needs the best. Anyway, we should not neglect the importance of a healthy and balanced diet, not only for the beauty and health of our hair, but the beauty and health of our entire body.
Amla (Indian Gooseberry) Use:
Amla or Indian gooseberry is used since ancient times in Ayurveda for treating skin and hair problems. It was proven to be very efficient due to its properties. It is a rich source of antioxidant vitamin C. It has amazing anti-aging properties and helps to prevent premature graying of hair. Also, it combats dandruff and offers an amazing shine to your hair. Moreover, this berry reduces hair fall, improves hair growth and maintains the scalp and the hair healthy. There are other benefits of this magical berry that I can’t fit in this space, but trust me, it’s working and you should try it. The amla powder can be found in stores and is not expensive. It acts just like henna. It turns your gray hair strands in black again. All you need to do is to mix some amla powder with some water and apply it on your hair. Wash off after half an hour. But, if you’ve got the berries, you can grind them, extract the juice and massage your scalp with it. The effect is the same, amazing in both cases.
Oils have moisturizing properties and jojoba oil, for instance, has a similar texture as the oil produced by our body, so it kind of replenishes the moisture level when needed. There are so many oils that work for our hair and body, that you should definitely have some of these at home. Among the best oils that do miracles with our hair are: jojoba oil, castor oil, argan oil, coconut oil, tea tree oil, shea butter, amla oil, avocado oil, canola oil, olive oil, almond oil and many other. Plenty of the oils mentioned in this list have amazing benefits for our skin as well, like olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil, tea tree oil. I recommend you have some of these at home, and in case you have some skin or hair issues, they are ready to help you. Also, by mixing these oils with other ingredients, like lemon juice, then you will have an even stronger remedy to fix your problem. In order to keep your hair safe and sound, you can just massage your scalp with some oil or warm it up a little bit and massage the scalp at least once a week. Over some time, the gray hair will disappear and your hair will feel healthy and light, shiny and gorgeous.
