Folk remedies for hair restoration and strengthening

Hair is one of the main ornaments of a woman given to us by nature. Alas, someone was more fortunate, some less. But we all want to increase our wealth. Solve the "puzzle" can not only using the products of "smart chemistry", but also thanks to the traditions and experience of our ancestors. Namely - with the help of folk remedies for hair restoration and strengthening.

Our grandmothers (and even more so their predecessors) could not boast of such a variety of hair care products that modern beauties have. Nevertheless, many of them were owners of luxurious hair.

Folk hair care products were usually made from "improvised" products: flowers, herbs, bark and roots, vegetable oils and food. These ingredients were either combined or used individually. Today the traditions of making remained the same. In addition, in our days to bring all the components to the required condition will not be difficult - blenders, mixers and other technological wonders help us. The main thing is to study the properties of "raw materials" and apply it competently, proceeding from the problems and needs of hair. For example, burdock strengthens the roots of hair, and nettles prevent their loss. With regard to oils, then for the health of the hair castor, burdock, sea-buckthorn, almond, olive, peach, grape and apricot kernels are radishes. On their basis, it is possible to make masks for active nutrition of hair and scalp. Essential oils are added in a dosed way - only a few drops per whole mask, more often to give a pleasant aroma (or to mask and neutralize the smell of onions, garlic, etc.). Of food, the most common components of hair masks are sour-milk products, yolk, vinegar, lemon juice, honey, yeast, salt onions, garlic, pepper, mustard. By the way, the last (onion, garlic, pepper, mustard) are used to slightly irritate the scalp. And this is necessary to increase the flow of blood to the hair follicles and enrich them with oxygen in order to grow strong and healthy hair. However, such masks should preferably be done 2 times a week and not longer than 40 minutes (not to provoke inflammation of the scalp). And the owners of sensitive skin is better to refrain altogether from such vigorous "seasonings".

Your hair will always radiate health and beauty if you take on a few tricky but important rules:

  • Do not wash your hair with hot water - it provokes them dehydration.
  • Do not sit on strict diets - lack of nutrients makes hair weak and provokes their loss.
  • As little as possible use rubber bands for hair (replace them with crabs and hair clips) - they pinch and break the hair, provoking their cross section.
  • Give preference to massage brushes instead of combs. They improve blood circulation without damaging the structure of the hair.
  • If you use abundantly styling preparations, be sure to wash your head not only in the morning before laying, but before going to sleep, so that silicone does not clog the pores of the scalp.
  • Try as little as possible to use any thermal means for drying or styling hair.
  • Do not comb or braid wet hair - in this condition they are the most brittle.
