#1. Use aloe vera juice
Is there an aloe vera plant that has a boring existence in a pot somewhere in your house? It’s time to use it better! Aloe Vera juice stimulates hair growth and is useful for treating the scalp.
- Snip off a few aloe leaves.
- Cut each leaf in half to cause juice secretion.
- Massage the juice into the hair roots. The use of massage movements improves blood circulation and ensures better absorption.
- Leave the mask for at least two hours. If you want you can leave it all night.
#2. Prepare a panthenol mask
D-panthenol is a synthetic vitamin B5 that, when introduced into the skin, is transformed into pantothenic acid, a chemical known to normalize the condition of the epidermis. Its properties include the restoration of hair follicles and the prevention of hair loss.
- Wash the hair as usual.
- Apply panthenol (foam or gel) to clean the hair, focusing your attention on the roots.
- You can also apply panthenol throughout the hair to straighten it and eliminate static electricity.
#3. Rinse your scalp with cold water after washing
Try to make it a habit. Coldwater closes pores and improves blood circulation, which leads to faster hair growth. As an added benefit, your hair will be noticeably brighter.
- Rinse hair normally.
- After using a conditioner or mask, wash your hair with cold water.
#4. Wash the hair with apple cider vinegar
Doing this twice a month will be enough. Apple cider vinegar activates hair follicles, an indispensable service that will help you in your search for lush hair.
- Wash the hair.
- Use apple cider vinegar instead of a hair conditioner.
- Do not rinse – Unlike wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar does not have a strong smell.
#5. Treat your scalp with protein masks
Here is a good trick to combat protein shortages:
- Take two eggs at room temperature.
- Separate egg whites from yolks. Beat the whites and apply them to the roots of your hair.
- For greater effect, you can wrap your head with polyethylene and wear a warm hat.
#6. Try an egg and cognac mask
Eggs are full of protein, while brandy contains tannins that help to have thicker and fuller hair and stimulate growth.
- Get two eggs and a glass of brandy.
- Beat the ingredients with a fork or put them in a blender and apply the resulting mixture to the hair roots.
- Add olive oil if you want to apply the mask over the entire length; This will provide smoothness and ease of handling to the hair. Sushmita uses this technique to design and create elaborate hairstyles.
#7. Use essential oils
Jojoba, almond, lavender, rosemary, and thyme oils have a beneficial effect on the hair follicles, providing the scalp with a large number of vitamins and herbal components.
- Mix the essential oils mentioned above or add them to a coconut oil mask.
- Apply the mixture to the hair roots. Wait 2-3 hours.
- To wash an oil mask properly, rinse the head twice with normal shampoo or once with an alkaline shampoo for deep cleaning.
