Long hair is fashionable and at times, you just can’t wait to see your hair grow thick and long. Well, since there is no magic potion available to grow Rapunzel-like hair overnight, it is always good to keep your expectations realistic. If your medical problems are addressed properly, maintain a healthy lifestyle and opt for a regular hair care regimen, it is possible to grow your hair faster.
Oil massage is a time-tested remedy. Be it coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil or castor oil, using any or a combination of these oils have been known to promote luxurious growth of hair. But let us try and explore the top three homemade hair care recipes that do not involve the use of oil.
Here are the must-try top three oil-free home remedies that would deliver results surely if you stick to them religiously:
Excellent egg mask:
Egg is the best source of natural protein for your hair. Whisk an egg white and add two spoons of curd. Add a teaspoon of honey. Mix the ingredients and apply the egg mask on your scalp. You may also choose to add a spoon of dried fenugreek powder to your hair mask since fenugreek is superb for hair growth. Use a shower cap to cover your hair properly. Wait for thirty minutes. Then, wash off with a mild shampoo. This mask is not only good for promoting hair growth but also for improving the texture of your hair. Try to use this mask at least once a week.
Outstanding onion juice:
It is a miracle juice that is extremely effective in spurring re-growth of hair. It is rich in sulphur. Grate four onions and squeeze the juice out. Massage the juice on the scalp and the hair roots. The sulphur in onion juice stimulates the hair follicles to promote new growth of hair. The smell of the freshly extracted onion juice can be extremely strong but you have to put up with it if you wish to reap the benefits. You must leave it on for at least one hour. After that, wash off with a mild shampoo and see the difference in one month. This can be done on every alternate day.
Impressive infusion with herbs:
Lay your hands on as many herbs as you can- sage, nettle, rosemary, burdock and catnip. Steep any herb of your choice or a combination of herbs in hot water for twenty minutes. Massage it on your scalp, utilize it for diluting your shampoo and also use it as a final rinse to make your hair soft, strong and manageable. The goodness of these herbs improves blood circulation, activate the hair roots and promote hair growth.
If you are suffering from conditions like hormonal imbalance, fungal infections, thyroid disorders and seborrheic dermatitis, address them as early as possible. These conditions are often detrimental to growth of hair and at the same time, cause hair thinning and hair loss. Maintain and healthy lifestyle and stay away from excessive drinking, smoking and stress. Only then will the home remedies work wonders. The home remedies are cost effective but efficient in yielding good results. Incorporating these amazing remedies for your regular hair care routine would make your hair grow long, thick and strong, naturally!
