It seems that there’s a supplement or a ready-made cure for nearly every condition these days. With our busy lifestyles, it’s easy to get carried away and let popular brands dictate how we look after ourselves. From skin care to healthy hair products – there’s a solution for everything. We’re all quickly becoming mindless product junkies. However, we must realize that many natural products simply cannot be replaced and will always provide the best results, no matter what TV ads tell us! In this article, I’d like to discuss a few natural treatments for hair.
Getting a scalp massage is a great way to treat your hair. These procedures help increase blood flow to the scalp, thus promoting hair growth and thickness. It’s also a good idea to get an oil treatment to go with a message. There are lots of different oil treatments that are good for hair and scalp. For instance, castor oil is rich in omega-9 fatty acids and can prevent hair breakage, moisturize dry and flaky scalp and increase hair thickness. This oil also has strong anti-fungal properties and is great for treating dandruff and other scalp conditions.
Wash your hair regularly. Don’t let unwanted residue build up on your head. Dead skin and dandruff can block hair follicles and slow down hair growth. It’s very important to know your hair type and choose the right shampoo for regular use. Typically, there are different shampoos for curly, fine and dry hair. Avoid shampoos that contain a lot of artificial ingredients.
Instead of resorting to various chemical treatments for dandruff and other scalp problems, try natural remedies such as white vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil. Massage your scalp using olive oil or lemon juice and let it sit for a few minutes before washing it out. This should help moisturize the scalp and get rid of dandruff.
Even though natural remedies are generally safe to use and have few (if any) side-effects, always consult a professional before undertaking any treatment.
