Boost Healthy Hair Growth
Say farewell to expensive hair care treatments and products that promise the world but do little but empty your bank account. You don't need to pay an arm and a leg to restore growth and vitality to your ageing, thinning locks. There are in fact many remedies for hair growth out there which rely exclusively simple, everyday ingredients that you can whip together quickly at home. Here is the pick of the bunch. And for more info on hair tips and tricks, got to BoldBarber.com.
Simply whip together the whites of two eggs and apply to your hair as a mask, leaving for 20 minutes to half an hour before you rinse it out. Your hair will appear thicker and shinier virtually instantly. If you apply an egg mask to your hair on a regular basis, then you will also notice rapid and appreciable growth in your hair. The reason? Egg is chock full of the proteins that constitute the building blocks of your hair strands; it also contains many other nutrients required by healthy hair, for example iron, zinc, Sulphur and phosphorus.
Egg, Olive Oil and Honey
Combine these three simple ingredients to create a potent, all natural conditioner for you dry, damaged hair. Simply mix one teaspoon apiece of olive oil and honey together with the whites of one egg in a bowl until you get a smooth textured paste. Apply to your hair, leaving for 20 minutes to half an hour before washing out with shampoo and water.
We have already encountered the magical, hair-rejuvenating properties of the humble egg, but what about honey and olive oil. Honey is a humectant which naturally adds and retains moisture in your hair strands, whilst its antioxidants and various other constituents provide your hair follicles with many of the nutrients they need to grow new. Olive oil, meanwhile, is also rich in antioxidants that enhance scalp health (and fight dandruff), it also inhibits the production of the DTH hormone that works to narrow your follicle hair shafts.
Curry Leaves with Coconut Oil
It seems a strange combination – and certainly as a home hair growth remedy. But it’s true, curry leaves and coconut oil are both extremely effective tools for encouraging the growth of new hair. Coconut oil, in particular, contains several fatty acids that bind with the proteins in your hair, facilitating new growth, and protecting your strands against breakage, pollutants and heat. It also seals moisture into your hair. Combine coconut oil and the juice from (boiled) curry leaves to create a paste that you can apply to your hair; alternatively, just eat them! You will get equally good results either way.
Like rosemary essential oil, another effective hair growth remedy, rosehip oil—derived from the rosehip herb cultivated mostly in Chile - also stimulates the growth of new strands when you apply it to your precious locks. It is also effective as a night-time facial moisturizer, and an anti-ageing skin-care remedy. It's also non-GMO, 100% organic and free of harmful parabens and other chemicals. Simply take a few drops, add to two tablespoons of shampoo, and shampoo your hair as usual. Alternatively, you can add rosehip oil to olive oil and massage the combination through your scalp.
Banana and Avocado Hair Mask
Yes, bananas and avocados! This is another one that's a little out of left field, but blending bananas with avocado (and perhaps a little coconut oil for good measure) to create an all-natural hair mask makes for an exceptionally effective remedy for new hair growth. This is because bananas are rich in potassium, and other natural vitamins and oils that help to soften your hair thus preventing brittleness and breakage. Avocado, meanwhile, is rich in vitamins B and E, which strengthen your hair strands, repair damage to the scalp, and reverse hair loss. Simply add the mixture to your hair, leaving for 20 minutes before you wash it out.
Aloe Vera is best known as a skin care product, however it is equally good at preventing hair loss. Chock full of essential nutrients and enzymes that encourage the growth of new hair and condition hair leaving it silky and smooth - simply add a few tablespoons of aloe Vera to your regular shampoo and wash your hair as normal - you will quickly notice a big difference upstairs.
