Natural DIY shampoos are great against hair issues. The only problem some girls have against DIY shampoos is that it takes a lot of work. It’s a good thing though that I came up with this article.
If a totally natural DIY shampoo couldn’t be managed, a great alternative would be a partial DIY shampoo. Try mixing in some natural ingredients to you shampoo for bonus benefits. Here are some of these ingredients that can aid in making your hair stronger, reducing hair fall, and increasing hair growth.
Lemon juice is both anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Along with the ability to naturally exfoliate, it is very helpful in treating dandruff. It’s also excellent for oily scalps, and great in absorbing oil without having bad effects on sebaceous glands. Hair can thin out and break because of dandruff and oily scalp. Using lemon juice regularly can help protect you against this.
Just mix in half a teaspoon of the juice with two tablespoons of your shampoo.
Since honey is an antioxidant, it stimulates growth of hair while it makes the scalp healthier. Because it’s an emollient, it makes hair follicles healthier. Experts believe that using honey can stimulate the dormant follicles which are responsible for boosting hair growth.
Mix half a teaspoon of honey, make sure it is organic and raw, with two tablespoons of your shampoo.
It is important to note though that frequent usage of honey can make your hair lighter.
Aloe Vera has been very popular for quite some time. It’s great in helping hair grow faster, treating dandruff and keeping your scalp moisturized. And there are no side effects to be afraid of. Mix in a single teaspoon of aloe vera with two tablespoons of your shampoo.
