Top 5 hair-care tips for a shiny and lustrous mane
For almost all of us, summer time means fun-in-the-sun. But mind you, if you spend a lot of time outdoors, the sun can give your mane some potential damage in the long run. Using the newest hair care products available on online shopping platforms will only let you hair get infiltrated with chemicals. Take these hair-care tips to get a strong and shiny mane albeit naturally.
For bouncy and fuller looking hair:
If your hair tends to fall flat on your head then perhaps you need to add some bounce to it. Prepare a mixture of apple cider vinegar and warm water in equal proportions, and apply to your hair from roots to tips. Swap this mixture with your regular conditioner. Rinse out thoroughly.
For softer and smoother hair:
Olive oil is mostly known for its conditioning properties for the hair or skin alike. Massaging a little bit of olive oil 20 minutes before you shampoo will make your hair softer and visibly smoother. Honey mixed with olive oil makes for a healthy hair pack that also adds shine to your hair.
For hair fall:
Amla or Indian gooseberry powder is extremely beneficial to cure hair fall in normal hair. Apply half a cup of amla powder mixed with castor oil and an egg white to your scalp and the shaft of your hair and wash off after 30 minutes. It adds lustre to your hair and makes the follicles stronger. Another recipe for hair fall would be mixing two tablespoons of honey to half a cup of your conditioner and apply to your hair after shampooing for a smooth and silky mane.
Avoid hot water:
Washing your hair with hot water makes your hair dry and brittle apart from stripping off the natural and protective oils from it. It is thus advisable to wash your hair with either cold water or lukewarm water.
Last but not the least; you must always keep yourself well hydrated. Drinking a lot of water and fresh fruit and vegetable juices will show pleasantly surprising effects on your tresses. Have a healthy and balanced diet. Try to include vitamins A, C, D and E, and eat lots of fibrous foodstuff.
