10 Ways To Have Soft Hair

Healthy hair means beautiful hair. But not all of us are blessed with healthy, beautiful hair that shines and bounces with joy. Moreover the present day lifestyle of running from pillar to post, erratic eating schedules and lack of rest deprives our hair of the much required nutrition. To top it all is the amount of pollution that strips every strand off its oils and leaves it dry and lifeless. What does one do in such conditions?

Hair care tips are numerous but which one to follow? If we go by the luring television commercials and glossy magazine ads a hefty amount will be spent on hair care products. In the form of tips for soft hair there will be a host of products displayed. We have products ranging from quick action hair oils, shampoos repairing years of damage in a couple of washes, conditioners, serums, softeners and a host of other products.

The range of products available should make our hair feel so special but so we really need all of them? Our older generation never had so many hair care products and yet they had lovely, long tresses. The basic requirement is to keep hair and scalp clean. Massage oil once or twice a week and keep away from unnatural treatment. Keep your minimum requirement to an oil and shampoo. For other hair care tips look towards your kitchen.

Hair care in the Kitchen

Given here are some items that we all find in our kitchen and pantry. Make use of them for your hair and see your hair thank you in a real bouncy manner.

Egg

This has been my all favorite all along. It not only provides the much needed protein to the scalp and hair but also acts as an excellent conditioner. Mix with other items like honey, lemon or even milk. If your hair is oiled then no problem or else you can add the oil to the egg hair mask. Apply on every strand and scalp. Allow to dry for at least half an hour and then shampoo as always.

Honey 

Mix it with egg or milk and apply to strands and scalp. If you do not wish to mix it apply as it is. However, do not leave it for too long a time as honey can lighten the shade of your hair. A natural conditioner and moisturizer for your hair that gives natural care.

Milk

This is a source of protein for the hair. Time and again research has said that protein is important for good hair and what could be better than milk. Apart from that it also helps condition the hair strands.

Oil

Hair care tips can never be complete without oil. If you regularly wash your hair without pre-oiling you will so see your hair texture taking a dip. Hair will start looking dry and dull and may develop a frizz as well.

Banana

The fruity smell of banana comes with the goodness of giving us gorgeously beautiful hair. Puree bananas as per your hair length, mix with beaten egg and apply. Let it soak it in a little and wash as always.

Yoghurt

This is yet another great source of protein, a good moisturizer and conditioner for the hair. Apply it on its own or mix with gram flour, soaked and ground fenugreek seeds or even with egg.

Beer

Have we not heard of beer shampoo? Chuck the shampoo and get real beer. No do not drink it but use it as a conditioner. After you have shampooed your hair give your hair a beer rinse. They will dance with joy.

Apple cider vinegar

Of the many benefiters of apple cider vinegar the hair is also one to benefit. A post wash rinse with apple cider vinegar helps get rid of all residue and hair shines with all its might and also has a smooth texture.

Lemon

A close cousin of vinegar this too is an excellent cleanser when mixed with hair packs. The juice of one lemon for long hair and half a lemon for shorter hair. Apply with egg, oil, milk or honey and treat your hair.

Gram flour

Rich in protein mix it with yoghurt and apply as a hair mask. Allow the hair and scalp to absorb the benefits for a minimum of half an hour and wash as usual. Hair will be soft, smooth and silky.
