Just like our body, our hair also goes through a lot of wear and tear. Over time, environmental damage, poor lifestyle, bad habits, and hard water take a toll on the mane.
Hair fall comes uninvited and we lose strand by strand each day. While it is normal to lose 100 strands per day, losing a bunch of it each time you run your fingers through it signals a bigger problem.
To tackle such hair loss conditions, we have a tried and tested concoction of 5 hair oils that’ll help you combat it sooner and better. All you need to do is mix equal amounts of all oils in an oil dispenser bottle and use it twice a week.
Let’s get started.
Coconut oil that is produced in India is known to reduce protein loss in hair. A regular massage of coconut oil prevents breakage and dry and brittle hair. The fatty chains present in coconut oil soothe the cuticle and hydrate the hair deeply.
Unlike other oils, castor oil is rich in antioxidants, proteins, vitamins, and fatty acids. Therefore, castor oil nourishes the scalp and provides essential nutrients to the hair shaft. It is known to strengthen the hair and prevent hair loss thus giving you a fuller mane.
Sweet almond oil
Don’t you hate the crusty look of dry hair ends? Almond oil is known to make your hair less prone to split ends. Less damaged hair ends are directly proportional to longer and more voluminous manes. Almond oil contains a massive quantity of vitamin E, which acts as a natural antioxidant and heals and repairs any signs of hair damage.
Studies suggest that extra virgin olive oil prevents the hormone dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, from binding to the scalp which leads to hair fall. Hence, it reduces hair loss and encourages hair growth and health. If your hair is prone to dandruff, olive oil’s antifungal properties can help clear it. The moisturizing effects of olive oil stimulate hair production too.
A study has found rosemary oil as effective as minoxidil for promoting hair growth. It is also considered an option for treating male pattern baldness. Add 10 drops of rosemary essential oil to the mix of the above 4 oils to get long, shining, and voluminous locks.
