2. Avoid chemical shampoos

Sodium laurel or laureth sulphate are synthetic detergents or chemicals which lather well and thus are used in dishwashing and liquid cleaners. They are basically used in shampoos because they make a thick lather but can suck out all the moisture from the hair as they are very harsh. Direct application of shampoo to the scalp should be avoided. One should choose a shampoo depending upon the type of hair one has. There are many natural hair washes like Shikakai or a paste of black gram dal mixed with fenugreek powder.

 

3. Hot oil treatment

Oiling the hair once a week is very important and if it is a hot oil rub it is even better. Hot oil treatment means just warming the oil one uses and applying it to one’s head in the same way as one normally does. The benefit of warming oil is that it easily penetrates into the scalp and leaves hair shinier and more flexible. It prevents the dryness of the hair, thus preventing split ends which are results of dry hair.

 

4. Hair packs

To make one’s hair strong, healthy, voluminous and silky packs must be regularly used. The process of rejuvenation and revitalization of hair can be carried out by applying a hair pack or mask. Hair packs can easily be made at home and with very simple materials which are generally available at home. Natural hair packs are made according to one’s hair type and so one needs to identify with the type of hair one has and choose a hair pack accordingly.

 

5. Natural conditioning
