6 Ways To Maintain Your Long And Shiny HairHaving a hair full of split-ends just looks extremely brittle and weak. The problem is that whether we like it or not, we’re bound to deal with them every once in a while, especially as your hair grows longer, because sun damage, heat, dust, pollution, chemicals, and hair habits can all cause split-ends. Usually, people get a trim, go for expensive hair treatments at the salon or use pricey hair products when this happens, but what if you’re trying to keep your hair long and want it shiny at the same time? Well, there are ways to care for your long locks to make sure you get to flaunt it with pride all the time!

 

1.   Egg Hair Mask

We know that it’s highly recommended to incorporate more eggs into your diet because it helps make your hair grow better. However, did you know that you can make a hair mask out of it too? Because eggs are high in Sulphur, iron, proteins, iodine, and phosphorus, which work well to restore and replenish the hair’s natural softness, applying the mask directly to your hair helps. You only need the white on the eggs and just leave it on your scalp for fifteen minutes.

 

2.   Scalp Massage

You can never go wrong with a massage. When massaging oil to the scalp, the oil penetrates into the hair follicles to distribute nutrients to each strand which then results in vibrant and lustrous locks. Warm oil massages can help provide a protective layer for your strands so they don’t easily get damaged and builds resistance overtime with consistent treatment which is important if you have long hair. Why? Because long hair that’s full if split end and is so dry doesn’t look good and ages your appearance. Aside from that, it relaxes you and benefits your scalp and hair at the same time! While you may go for DIY, it’s good to go to a trained therapist from time to time for a more thorough procedure.

3.   Steaming

Steaming not only works for your cold and cough, it is extremely effective in maintaining soft, strong and long hair. It keeps your scalp and hair healthy and prevents the growth of head lice along with controlling dry and itchy dandruff. Steaming should be done after you have applied oil on your head.

 

4.    Ayurveda Suggests To Improve Your Diet

Even if you use all the best hair products and do all these hair care routines you’d still have trouble achieving great hair if you have a poor diet. Your scalp and hair is part of your body, so what you put inside your body will reflect outside. So cut back on eating junk foods, fast foods, drinking soda and alcohol. Start feeding yourself with foods that provide nutrients that your body needs and will benefit from. Foods like celery, alfalfa, carrots, seaweeds, fish like salmon, walnuts, almonds, milk, vegetable oil, avocado, and olive oil help you grow better hair.

 

5.   Papaya Mask

Mix together 1 skinned papaya with 1/2 cup of plain yogurt. Let it sit for 45 minutes before you rinse it out. This mixture is not only great for moisturizing your hair which then results to lesser split-ends, but it can also help you in controlling dandruff as well as strengthening your roots which both results to less hair fall and boost in hair growth.

 

6.   Indian Gooseberry

This is also called amla which has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory properties that work elaborately to promote better growth of strong and shiny hair. This is usually the main ingredient when making ayurvedic oils. It is either prepared in sesame oil base or coconut oil as the carrier oil because it is great for conditioning the hair and providing a protective layer against sun damage. Pitta related conditions benefit most from amla oil, it even helps with headaches and dizziness.
