Think all those women with lustrous long hair in commercials are lying to you? Little do you know that you actually don’t need to spend a fortune to get long and healthy hair. More often than not, the solutions lie in your kitchen. Here are simple home remedies for long hair...

Try onion juice

If you’re trying to get your hair to grow longer, try onion juice. Onions are rich in sulphur, which helps blood circulation. It also improves collagen production that makes the hair grow faster. All you need to do is take1/4th cup onion juice and mix 1tbsp of honey into it. Massage this potion on your scalp for about 10 minutes and then wash off.

Rely on an essential oil

There’s nothing better than champi when it comes to hair care. Use an oil like coconut oil, which has been long known as one of the best oils to achieve long hair. A rich source of potassium, coconut oil helps your hair grow longer over time.

Go for a mask

A mask made of egg is an excellent source of protein, which helps your hair grow longer. Just crack open 2 eggs, strain the yolks and use the egg white on your hair. Let it stay for 20 minutes and wash off.

Massage garlic on your roots

Split ends and damaged hair often dissuade your hair from growing long and strong. This is why you need to boil 2-3 cloves of garlic with an essential oil and massage this potion on your roots. Garlic is known to reduce breakage and improve blood circulation, which leads to long hair.

Opt for a henna hair pack

Henna is a natural conditioner for the hair. Along with smoothening your hair, henna strengthens it from the roots and helps increase growth. Just mix dry henna with yoghurt and apply it all over your hair from roots to the tips. Leave it till it dries off and wash off with a shampoo and conditioner.
