Rosemary works best for hair growth when it is used with olive oil. Infuse dried rosemary leaves with extra virgin olive oil and apply directly to the scalp. Not only does it promote hair growth, but also helps to prevent hair from turning prematurely grey.
Lavender has an amazing scent that calm the senses. It helps to soothe itchy scalp, treat dandruff and promote hair growth. Like rosemary, it can be infused with extra virgin olive oil and applied onto the scalp. Massaging lavender infused oil on the scalp daily is great for relieving stress and headaches, both of which play a big part in hair loss.
3. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera repairs dead skin cells on the scalp, prevents itching, reduces dandruff, promotes hair growth and rejuvenates hair. You can apply pure aloe vera gel to the scalp to stimulate blood circulation or rinse your hair with aloe water regularly to condition it naturally. It takes very little to look after an aloe vera plant which can be grown in your kitchen, garden or balcony. Therefore, investing time and money in it for a healthier you is very worthy!
Have you ever wondered why some people look older than their age? Well, other than unhealthy diet and lifestyle, another reason could be the products that they are using.
Most commercial products contain toxins such as sodium lauryl sulphate, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances and harmful preservatives which can confuse our body system. These chemicals are detrimental to our endocrine systems, leading to reproductive and hormonal issues and speeding up ageing. Products that contain carcinogenic ingredients can also cause cancers.
On the other hand, our bodies know how to metabolise and make use of natural and organic ingredients efficiently. Ingredients such as aloe vera, neem, fruits, flowers and essential oils are used in the preparation of organic personal care products. These products are free from chemical and pesticide. They have detoxifying effect and slow down the process of ageing.
Switching to chemical free products is a good way to protect yourself and your family.
A common ingredient used in commercial shampoos is silicon. It is added to give the illusion of healthy and glossy hair when in reality the silicon only coats the hair. Silicon builds up over time and is detrimental as it can lead to excessive hair loss as well as dry and itchy scalp.
When you switch to organic shampoo and conditioner that do not contain silicon, it will take 1 to 2 months to detoxify and undo the damage. Your hair will feel a bit dry without the conditioner in the beginning. However once your hair returns to its natural state, it should be healthy and shiny once again.
