Someone recently asked me regarding how I take care of my hair. I won’t say I have as beautiful hair as Atika or Sahiba here at IMBB. But I have long fine thin hair. I do take care, but the my mantra is Keep it Simple Silly (KISS) :p
I list out some easy to do, easy to follow for all those working girls who need to manage their mane as well as their jobs-be it home or office. I’m not boring you with regular conditioner champi details.
1. The one with eating almonds:
I know, you all are wondering what kind of tip is this. But trust me this is the best lotion/conditioner/treatment you can give to your hair. During winters you can sesame coated almonds. They are not only tasty but healthy too. I make sure that in summers I dip them into water and eat them (5 at least). Almonds have natural proteins & vitamin E which is good for hair and the skin.
2. The one with using Filtered Cold water:
I follow this since time immemorial. After shampoo/conditioner I use a bottleful of cold water (straight from the fridge) and just give a last rinse to my hair. This makes my hair cold, ultimately giving it a shine afterwards. Try this tip and you won’t regret. You may add rose water for some scent. Au naturel :p
3. The one with don’t tie your hair in the same way every day:
Yes, this one is a shocker; we all girls tend to do our hair in the same way, especially in terms of using clips in the same way like every day. This causes hair loss from that particular hair. Thus, leave your hair open whenever possible. Give them space to breathe!
4. The one with Primrose Oil capsule:
The rich stores of essential fatty acids in evening primrose oil not only prevent nails from cracking but also help to keep them generally healthy. In addition, the essential fatty acids nourish the scalp, making the supplement potentially valuable in treating a variety of hair problems. This one is straight from the doctor, but I recommend that you must consult a doctor before taking any, since I faced thinning of hair.
5. The one with changing your pillow cover:
Yes, this one acts as a two in one. I follow this to avoid my hair getting oily or causing my face to break out due to my hair leaving residue on the pillow case. This keeps the hair fresh and the dirt and grime away. Do try this one.
6.The one with eating green leafy vegetables:
This is a winner tip. Ask any of the doctors, dieticians, google :p they will tell you about the benefits. I consume a lot of Spinach, fenugreek (methi), lettuce etc. It has two fold benefits, you mom will be happy plus hair will be shiny. Infact, it is also good for the skin. Leafy greens are full of vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting photochemical. They also contain a lot of water, which helps keep you hydrated and contributes to beautiful skin and hair.
Amongst others, I also regularly find time to oil my hair (atleast once a week). I get a hair spa once a while. This keeps my hair hydrated and bad hair days at a bay. A trim once in 3-4 months is also necessary for maintaining length and healthy looking hair.
Hope you like these tips and incorporate them too. If you are wondering why I have titled by headings the way I have done here, those of you who are ardent fans of the American sitcom FRIENDS would know
Much love to all.
