Natural Hair Care


Teenagers spend most of their time worrying about their appearances and the hair they sport. This is also the time when they experiment extensively with strong products which contain more chemicals and less natural or organic ingredients resulting in damaging hair cuticles and unexpected hair fall. Dandruff, dryness in scalp and split-ends add to the woes.

Choosing a wrong harsh brush can pull hair and lead to hair loss, on the contrary a soft brush and massage with warm oil strengthens the hair-roots. Your hair and the scalp can lose moisture with excess drying, artificial straightening and harsh brushing. You don’t need to wash or shampoo your hair every day. Twice or thrice a week washing and conditioning is more than enough. Too much of shampoo damages the protective layer of your hair.

Don’t ever use soap to wash your hair, the high pH can totally damage the hair. Lukewarm water is best for your scalp; it is neither too hot nor too cold ultimately relaxing the head and hair both. Don’t use hair spray and hair straighteners excessively, they impediment the natural curling of hair.

Using Aloe Vera for Hair Nourishment



The popular healing herb aloe vera provides all the necessary vitamins and nutrients to hair, it repairs damaged hair cuticles and restores the hair growth. Using aloe vera juice regularly can strengthen and vitalize the dull hair. For best effect mix a teaspoon of coconut or almond oil in half cup of aloe vera gel. Apply the mixture on your hair, leave it for an hour before washing. The gel provides a good deal of moisturizer to your hair and retains it even after washing.


If you don’t want to use oil with aloe vera gel, you can use glycerin; though I would suggest giving a nice oil bath to your hair at least once in a week. The shining and glossiness that follows after an oil bath is inevitable.


If you have dandruff, mix a teaspoon of lemon juice in the aloe vera gel, apply it for an hour and then rinse it thoroughly.


Aloe vera when combined with other herb extracts and oils such as jojoba and wheat germ oil not only prevent hair loss, it helps nourishing and promoting the new growth; all very naturally. Use aloe vera products that contain natural components and moisturizers, they can be very refreshing and soothing on the scalp. Using the herb ensures that the dryness is reduced, in addition to cooling of the scalp and also improving of the blood circulation.

What's more, you can grow your own aloe vera in your home herb garden.
