How to take care of your hair with natural tools
Remove damaged ends with oils
If you notice damaged and tearing ends, you can try to fix them with nourishing jojoba oils (Simmondsia chinensis) [ [ref. 1] ] or argan (Argania Spinosa) [ [ref. 2] ]. They are rich in lipids and peptides that can be quickly and easily absorbed into the hair. A small amount is applied to the damaged ends of the hair, usually after washing with other products and before blowing.
Mint against itching of the scalp
Dry and itchy scalp can be soothed and harmonized in a very natural way with essential oils of mint (Mentha). A few drops of this oil should be rubbed continuously into the scalp for a calming effect. Mint is naturally antibacterial and antifungal (as well as pine, tea tree and eucalyptus), so it is a great remedy for inflammation and itching. [ [ref. 3] ]
Give yourself more shine with rosemary
Rosemary essential oils (Rosmarinus) are known antioxidants that can protect an important protein in your skin and hair – HSP70. This protein helps eliminate the damage that free radicals, stress and various other toxins cause to your cells. Thanks to rosemary oil, your hair will be strong, smooth and shiny longer and without causing damage. [ [ref. 4] ]
Victory against dandruff with coconut
If you are tormented by a flabby scalp, you can fight dandruff with coconut oil. Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, which has antibacterial and antifungal properties that can help with this unpleasant problem. A few tablespoons are all you need to soothe and clean the scalp. Massage the oil into the scalp and leave for a few hours. Do this 2-3 times a week, depending on how much the scalp is affected.
Nourish hair with an avocado mask
Your scalp is one of the most absorbent parts of your body, so be sure to nourish it not with chemicals, but with natural nutrients. For a 100% natural hair mask, take an avocado, crush it and mix with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Apply the mixture evenly to the hair and wait 30 minutes to 4 hours before washing and combing your hair. [ [ref. 5] ]
Try natural dietary supplements
Hair healing supplements are gaining popularity, and many people choose to nourish their hair from the inside out. But if you are trying to give up chemicals and switch to organic products, you will have to choose carefully when looking for hair vitamins. Fortunately, there are chewable tablets with hair vitamins that do not contain artificial dyes, flavors, sugars and MSG (Monosodium glutamate), while providing your hair with multivitamins that promote its growth.
Eat a balanced diet
Providing these fats will give your hair natural softness and shine, as well as strength. In addition, be sure to provide your body with a lot of protein. Protein is one of the main ingredients of hair, so in your menu you can include more foods that contain the full range of essential amino acids. These are meat, eggs and fish.
Red meat, as well as leafy vegetables are also rich in iron, which will make your hair strong and healthy. Zinc is also important for normal hair growth. This essential mineral can be found in various foods such as pumpkin seeds, oysters and spinach. [ [ref. 6] ]
