How often does it happen that when you want to go out, your hair looks worse than a broom? When it is extremely humid, the moisture in the air swells the hair strands, making it look frizzy. Using harsh chemicals, colours, blow dryers and straighteners on your hair makes it even worse. When you need to go out, you comb your hair several times and try different hairstyles that can make your hair look at least decent. Here too, you make the mistake of causing more damage to your lifeless hair.
Your hair requires moisture and hydration constantly. Excess heat, friction and chemicals make your hair dry. Even when you tie your hair very tightly, the moisture is unable to reach from the scalp to the tips of your hair. Having frizzy and dry hair is a very common problem and can be treated by nourishing your hair naturally.
We, at Oshea Herbals understand that hair care requires deep conditioning from time to time, maintaining a healthy diet and taking precautions to ensure smooth and silky hair in bad weather. Trying to treat your health with harsh chemicals can damage your health in the long run. Using natural hair care products not only nourishes your hair, but also adds nutrients to your body. Keeping all of this in mind, we have come up with a guide that will provide you with natural solutions for healthy hair:
Shampoo Your Hair Thrice a Week:Use herbal conditioning shampoos to nourish your hair. You need to cleanse off any dirt acquired by your scalp thrice a week. This will provide a massage to your roots and also secrete natural oil from your scalp that your hair requires. Our Heenashine Conditioning Shampoo contains henna and olive oil. While Henna is a natural conditioner that adds life to dull hair, olive oil is a natural treatment for dehydrated and frizzy hair. It moisturizes your hair from its roots to the tips, thereby improving texture and health of your hair.
Don’t Forget to Apply Conditioner: Whether you are facing any hair problems or not, never forget to apply conditioner when you cleanse your scalp. It is extremely important to keep your tips smooth and nourished. The Avoshine Hair Conditioner by Oshea Herbals contains Aloe Vera and Avocado. Aloe vera contains 75 nutrients for nourishment of hair. It keeps your hair hydrated and forms a protective layer on your hair to protect it from any environmental damage. Avocado consists of fatty acids that develop cells inside as well as outside the body. Any conditioner containing this ingredient will strengthen and moisturize your hair from root to tip.
Pamper Yourself With an Oil Massage:Oil massage not only strengthens the roots, it also enhances blood circulation in the brain and relaxes the nerves. Massage your hair with hair oil at least 20-30 minutes before you shampoo. This will release you from stress and using the right hair oil will provide your hair and body with the required nutrition and nourishment. Oshea’s Phytogain Hair Oil contains groundnut oil, enriched with Vitamin A, Vitamin D and Vitamin E. They keep the scalp hydrated, preventing dryness and any kind of eruptions as well as provide moisture and lustre to hair. It also contains sesame oil which penetrates deep into your hair, rejuvenating dry and damaged hair.
Phytogain Hair Vitalizer: Now oil is a need of the body to retain moisture by adding a coating layer. However, in humid climate conditions, a lot of us have a body type that secretes excess oil. Those of you, who have an oily skin or scalp, should avoid using hair oil. The Phytogain Hair Vitalizer is an alternative product to hair oil. It contains tulsi and amla that strengthen your scalp as well as hair shaft. They penetrate deep into your scalp, providing nourishment to your roots and smoothness to your hair. Since the vitalizer has a water base, you can apply it regularly, preferably a night before you shampoo your hair. A gentle massage helps in nourishment of roots and stress release.
Apply Hair Serum: Hair serum is usually applied on towel dried hair after you cleanse them. It provides a smooth and shiny texture to your hair and is applied only on the tips. Oshea Herbals has developed Smoother Hair Serum that contains olive oil and Vitamin E that gently detangles your hair and acts as a protective layer to keep your hair soft, smooth and beautiful.
Hair Butter Spa: We all like to get a spa done at salons from time to time, especially during occasions. Now, you can give special treatment to your hair at home whenever you like with the hair butter spa. Rich in Shea Butter and Vitamin E, this non-sticky hair butter moisturizes and nourishes your hair and cures all dryness and frizziness of your hair. Apply this after shampoo and wash it with plain water, 10-20 minutes prior to application.
Other Tips for Maintaining Healthy Hair
- Maintain a healthy diet. Drink lots of water and keep intaking proteins, calcium and vitamins A, B-complex, C and E.
- Keep getting a haircut every 3-4 months.
- Let your hair dry naturally. You can use a towel but don’t rub it too much as it causes friction. Gently squeeze water from your hair with it and avoid using hair dryers and hair straighteners.
- Avoid colouring your hair with chemicals.
- Brushing your hair is important to distribute natural oils from scalp to tips. However, the size of the bristles matter to avoid entanglement and breakage of hair. For short hair, you should use a short and round brush while for medium to long hair you should use a medium round brush. A wide toothed comb is also useful to prevent hair breakage.
- Never wash your hair with hot water. Always shampoo in luke warm or room temperature water.
- Cotton soaks water. Make sure your pillow cases are of a material that do not soak moisture from your hair.
Your hair requires nourishment through external as well as internal means. The secret to having healthy and beautiful hair all year round is to provide it with the right nutrients. Your hair needs to be hydrated constantly. While a healthy diet will provide nutrients and water to your hair, hair care products will retain the moisture it requires to remain strong and smooth.
