We all want our hair to be beautiful, healthy and strong. Large cosmetics companies try to sell you chemical products to stimulate hair growth, but often, they are extremely pricey, ineffective and can damage your scalp. However, there are simple, organic alternatives, which are 100% natural, that will help your hair grow faster. We have compiled a list of 6 magic ingredients for your hair. Ideally choose organic.
1) Aloe vera
This plant, which you can grow yourself at home, is widely known for its countless benefits for the body and the skin. Aloe vera gel is found inside the leaves of the plant, and has conditioning and softening properties.
Aloe vera is one of the best natural remedies to look after, strengthen and give shine to your hair, all the while promoting hair growth. Cut a stem of aloe vera and extract the transparent gel inside it. Cut it into slices and leave them to soak in a basin of water overnight. The next morning, use this aloe vera water to wash your hair. After a few weeks, you should start to notice the difference in your hair.
2) Potato water
Potatoes are rich in nutrients that are beneficial for your hair. Put potato peels to boil in a pot filled with water. Wash your hair with shampoo while the water with the potato peels cools down to lukewarm, and rinse your hair with the potato water.
Repeat this rinse 2 to 3 times a week for a number of weeks to see the first results.
3) Egg whites
Very rich in protein, eggs also contain many vitamins which promote hair growth. Separate 3 egg whites, beat the whites until they almost form peaks and apply this mousse mask to your hair. Leave it to work for 30 minutes and wash it normally afterwards.
Do this mask twice a week to quickly see positive results.
4) Olive oil
If you have dry hair, this could be due to the shampoo or hair care products you are using, which are not natural and which contain chemicals. It could also be due to environmental pollution or the use of a hairdryer or straighteners. Olive oil will hydrate your hair deeply and promote the growth of healthier hair.
Apply olive oil as a mask to your scalp and hair and wrap it in a hot towel. Once it has cooled down, remove the towel and leave the olive oil to work overnight. The next morning, you can shampoo your hair, and find that it naturally feels much softer.
Onion promotes blood circulation in the scalp.
You can use onion as a mask before using a natural shampoo or add it to your shampoo. Cut the onion into pieces (not too small so that they don’t get tangled in your hair), add honey and massage your scalp with the mixture, or add it to your usual shampoo. Repeat this treatment 3 to 4 times a week to make your hair grow faster.
This herb contains numerous health benefits, but rosemary is mainly used in cosmetics to stimulate the scalp and promote hair growth. Use it in infusion form in olive oil (for dry hair) or in apple cider vinegar (for oily hair) to rinse your hair after shampooing.
Otherwise, it is recommended that you brush your hair twice a day to stimulate blood circulation to your scalp and promote hair growth. However, avoid brushing your hair while it is damp, because it is more fragile then. Eat foods that are rich in protein (such as meat or whole grains) and in biotin (found in eggs, soya and whole grains). Finally, don’t use silicone products on your hair because it blocks the follicles and prevents hair growth.
