Heya!!Its weekend time again and weekend reminds me of dinner outing on Saturdays and just chilling around Sundays..with my mom shouting at me to go and take a head bath.Hence I got an idea to write about this one. So while I was gyming today I thought of conducting a short n sweet survey about What guys notice in a girl in her first look..options were 1) Eyes, 2) Body, 3) Hair or 4) Smile.
Out of 12 guys, 6 said “eyes”…hands down.They were like girls are so arrogant these days that they hardly smile (I was like we just don’t ;waste anything not even our smile..right girls). And other 6 without any doubt said Hair. So this shows that our Hair is quite an important feature ..but do we actually pay that much heed to it ? (No getting blow dries for parties n stuff doesnt count here)
O we just know to crib about how short it is, how rough it is, how dull it is etc , etc. Now u ll tell me that u go for hair spa once a month..well ok..but according to me its not enough. So today I ll give you some handy tips which will definitely help your hair..but you have to promise yourself that you ll do what I say for minimum 4 weeks (its not too much to ask for..cmon!)
1) If you are noticing that you are having some extra hair fall ( i.e not normal than usual)…that means your hair is talking to you that something you are doing is not right.It can be the new shampoo you are using, may be you are not taking out the conditioner properly from your hair while rinsing, may be you are not properly (or at all)feeding your hair and its roots or you are just not bothered about your hair.
So first thing here is to try and change products you are using…I know it ll make you a product junkie but you need to know what suits your hair best.A few hit and trials will be fine I guess. (By the way I am using Wella Enrich shampoo and mask along with L’oreal Liss Ultime Serum.I have been using theses products for almost 2 yrs now.They are bit towards high range than regular ones but they help me keep my hair straight as I keep my hair open most of the times.)I also get hair spa done (protein one)once in a month but its just now. There was a time when I didn’t get it done for two consecutive years.
2) Secondly you need to know the fact that a normal person’s hair grow half an inch every month . That means 6 inches in an year..but that normal person doesn’t take stress, does oiling on a regular basis and eats a perfect healthy diet. So if your hair is not growing @ that rate that doesn’t mean you are doing something wrong.So chill..and don’t worsen the conditions for your hair growth . Just make sure u oil your hair minimum once a week.Olive oil has best nourishing properties(DON’T OVER DO..IT GIVES PIMPLES ALSO ON THE FOREHEAD) and can be used for hot oil massage too. I keep alternating between olive oil and pure almond oil .(Not almond drops).But try and not to keep oil for like days …overnight is fine but i suggest few hours wil do the same magic.
3)Oiling is not enough..instead of putting all the chemicals and hair masks try few things at home which work wonders for your hair. Apply egg (add few drops of lemon to get rid of the smell n add few drops of olive oil to enhance the nourishment) it’s just like a direct protein mask. Keep it minimum for half an hour before you shampoo.And make sure you wash your hair firstly with just plain water..thoroughly and then apply the shampoo. And if you are a Vegetarian then curd is an another substitute. It is very good for people having flaky scalp or say Dandruff or You have a dry scalp.
Also never ever..yes never ever ever use hot water to wash your hair. If its Dilli ki Sardi even then go for luke warm water but avoid as much as you can. I
also try one funny trick for bringing shine to my hair..I wash my hair with 1 part of vinegar mixed with 4 parts of carbonated drink. (Don’t try if you are not convinced..was just sharing).
4) Lastly…comb you hair. (What..really? Thats a tip?) Yes comb your hair as much as you can..the more you do, the more blood circulation, the roots gets charged up and yes it helps a bit in growth too.Never sleep with a tangled head (As they say never sleep with your make up on) .One more thing you can try is lie on your back and let your hair down.This will make sure that some blood goes into your brains..n is good for your hair. (I read this somewhere..i am not sure it works definitely o not..but i do keep doing it.)
In the end..Keep it simple, keep it fun.
Don’t take stress o you ll lose all your hair in the long run.Get to know your hair, its type, its quality and work accordingly.(Things that everybody know..get rid of your split ends, try and sleep with your hair open or loosely tied, Try and stay away from colouring if you can, protect your hair from direct sunlight and dust-U look gorgeous with a hat o a scarf on..try it..and when you put sunscreen on your face..take few drops and run through your hair..It Does WORK.)
Happy Sunday..happy hair day♥
