Nourishment Tips

When it comes to nutrition, the first thing to keep in mind is that the body must be in good health. A low-nutrient diet, lack of sleep, a sedentary lifestyle, stress, and illness will all have an impact on the hair. Hair is nourished by the blood that flows to the follicles, so a healthy diet and excellent blood circulation are essential. In terms of regular hair care, it also needs external sustenance.

We must learn to handle our hair as if it were a fragile fabric. Natural components are good in this regard, and some of them are readily available at home.


Home Hair Cleanser

You can make your hair washing preparation. Plant ingredients like reetha and shikakai are powerful natural cleansers, yet they have a gentle action. They also have other beneficial properties. Amla is rich in Vitamin C and helps to restore the normal acid-alkaline balance of the scalp. Take a handful of dried reetha, shikakai, and amla and mix them. Place them in a litre of water and soak them overnight. The next day, simmer the herbs and water on low heat until the water is reduced to half its original volume. Do not boil it over a high heat source. Allow cooling before straining through a clean cloth. Wash your hair with the liquid. This amount should last for four washes. Refrigerate your homemade hair cleaner until you're ready to use it. Make small quantities at a time. Large quantities should not be kept over a long period.

The application of oil with a light massage helps to stimulate blood circulation to the follicles and also softens hair texture. The hair should not be rubbed vigorously. To move the scalp with slight rotating movements, only the fingertips should be utilised. Oils have distinct qualities and advantages. Olive oil, for example, aids in the restoration of the scalp's normal acid-alkaline balance. It's good for oily hair , dandruff-prone hair. In India, pure coconut oil is most widely utilised.
