If it has been months since your last haircut and your hair still isn’t significantly longer, it’s possible that you have a hair growth problem. Just like you, many women suffer from brittle, weak hair that doesn’t grow fast enough. Don’t fret because there is a way to use almond oil for hair growth. With its nutrient rich formula and easy availability, it can be easily added into one’s hair care routine in 8 easy ways which promote healthy, strong hair growth.
A simple way to work almond oil into your hair care regime is with the Sunsilk Nourishing Soft & Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. Enriched with the power of 5 oils including almond oil, its formula nourishes the hair deeply so that the tresses stay strong, smooth and beautiful.
The best way to reap the benefits of this oil is via a hot almond oil massage which can work wonders on your scalp. To try it, heat 3 tablespoons of almond oil with 4 – 5 curry leaves until boiling point. Leave it to cool and then massage it onto your scalp. Leave it for 30 minutes and wash it off with warm water. Curry leaves are rich in amino acids and almond oil is packed with Vitamin E. Together, they stimulate blood circulation and healthy hair growth.
A deep conditioning hair mask will leave your hair feeling like silk and encourage the growth of strong hair.
To make it, mix 2 tablespoons of yogurt, 1 teaspoon of honey and 2 teaspoons of almond oil. Combine into a runny paste and apply it over your scalp and lengths. Leave it for 40 minutes and wash it off with warm water. The anti-inflammatory properties of almond oil strengthen the scalp and banish away infection. When combined with moisturising yogurt and the humectant honey, they work together to give hair all round care.
We’ve heard about the benefits of lemon for the skin but for the hair as well? Yes, it’s true! With its clarifying properties, lemon unclogs dead cells and build-up from the scalp. When combined with almond oil, it nourishes the strands too! Make this mask by mixing the juice of 2 lemons with 2 tablespoons of almond oil. Apply it over the scalp, leave it for 20 minutes and wash it off with warm water.
What’s better than one hair oil? Two, of course! Get double the benefit by combining two oils for a head massage. Mix 2 tablespoons of almond oil with 1 tablespoon of jojoba oil and massage it over your head and its lengths. After 30 minutes, wash it off. Almond and jojoba oil neutralise the production of sebum on the scalp so that excess hair fall and greasiness is prevented.
You can reap the benefits of using almond oil as a leave-in hair serum via the Dove Elixir Hair Fall Rescue Hair Oil. With a formula that consists of rose and almond oil, it strengthens and moisturises hair so that hair fall is banished for good.
Make good use of any remaining bananas by making a hair pack with them. Mash two overripe bananas with 4 tablespoons of almond oil to form a thick paste. Apply the mixture on your scalp and lengths of your hair, leave it for an hour and wash it off thoroughly. When potassium rich bananas combine with almond oil which is full of antioxidants, they reduce hair loss and make hair look shiny as ever.
When almond oil and fenugreek come together, it’s a hair care solution that even your granny would be on board with! Make it by boiling 3 tablespoons of almond oil with half a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds until they become red. When warm, apply the mixture on the scalp, leave it for an hour and wash it away. Fenugreek is rich in niacin and iron which encourages healthy growth from the scalp while almond oil contains fatty acids which repair damage.
