Your supreme glory needs care and attention if you want it to grow long, strong, and bright.
The use of natural beauty therapies should be your goal, as the chemicals only damage the scalp and cause more problems than they cure in most cases.
We all want braids that gleam in the sunlight with bright good health.
Brightening your hair is something you can easily do at home. Your first step is to start getting used to using some cold water when showering. No need to stand directly under the shower head and wash in cold water.
Just tilt the shower head or buy the type of shower head that has a hose attachment so it can be used at any angle. Now tip the cold water so that it only hits your scalp … which will seal in the cuticles.
They have opened on the warm to hot that you used to shower with. When your hair cuticles are closed, they reflect sunlight instead of absorbing it.
Some people love really hot showers, but you have to remember that when it comes time to rinse, hot water makes your scalp sweat and can result in more oil production from your scalp, so try to lower the temperature and finish your rinse as cool as you can tolerate.
Choose the right type of shampoo for your cleaning. If you haven’t colored your hair, all you need to do is choose the shampoo for your specific texture. When coloring, you should choose a shampoo and conditioner that is suitable for colored hair.
There are many more natural beauty therapy tips you can try to maintain your color while you wash and dry.
Selecting the right shampoo for your texture is really important so as not to suffocate the hair follicles and not to over-dry the scalp.
These shampoos and conditioners will also protect it when it dries, keeping in moisture. Blow drying can remove moisture and leave you looking dull, so when possible, try to let it dry naturally without added stress – just let your locks air dry.
People have tried adding things like beer or eggs to their wash or rinse for an added natural glow.
Let’s talk about some other proven methods that you should definitely try now. Vinegar is the first choice, but not the white vinegar that you might use in cleaning your home.
You want to buy a bottle of apple cider vinegar. To apply, shape into a spray bottle and apply to the entire scalp. Do this in the shower and wait a few minutes before rinsing it off. Try this application two or three times a week.
Do you use essential oils at home for health benefits? Try taking a capful of your best shampoo and mix in a teaspoon of tea tree oil. Wash well and rinse. Another method is to use oil.
Here we are talking about a good almond or olive oil. When applying, gently massage your scalp. Once you’ve completed this step, move on to brushing it through your hair.
To get a really nice shine before you go to work, brush it off for three to five minutes. This will fluff up and help your hair shine at the same time. The massager effect of the brush is also good for the scalp.
To have really beautiful and shiny hair, you need to work from the inside out. That means what you are putting into your body. Your locks need to be nourished with vitamin E and healthy oils.
Some foods that are great for vitamin E are nuts and seeds, roasted or raw without salt. Avocado is also tasty and packed with vitamin E.
Lastly, be sure to drink plenty of water, preferably distilled rather than sparkling. Shiny hair can be yours, if you stick to some of these ideas.
There are several things you can do to protect your hair now that you have applied different ingredients to keep it healthy. Once you finish washing it, don’t take a towel to dry it.
Instead, wrap a cotton towel around your head, completely covering your hair. This will greatly reduce split ends as the towel slowly absorbs moisture.
At night, before sleeping, turn on your humidifier to moisten the air. This is especially important if you live in a part of the country where the temperature drops and you have a working electric furnace or heater.
Dry heat will remove moisture from your hair. Finally, when you leave at night, take off your elastics or other accessories. Those elements pull on your roots, especially at night if you move frequently.
