Indulge in scalp brushing
The crux of most of your hair problems lies in your scalp. If your scalp is healthy, your locks will be free from dandruff, dryness and eventually be long and strong. One of the best ways to indulge in hair detox is scalp brushing. In this process, you use a paddle brush to slowly brush your scalp from the headline to the nape of your neck. This not only promotes blood circulation but also ensures that all the dirt and grime is off your scalp. Doing this twice a week will help your hair growth as well as make your mane healthier.
Avoid hair dye and hair colours
Hair colour and dyes contain chemicals like ammonia and peroxide. If your hair could speak, it would tell you how it’s completely fed up of these chemicals that are making it rough, dry and unmanageable. These are sure shot signs that mean you need a hair detox right away. Yes, we know it’s going to be a tad bit embarrassing to let your greys show but it’s also true that your hair is silently asking for a break from dyes.
Stay away from heat
Sure, heating products like hair dryers and straighteners make your locks look temporarily beautiful. Truth be told, they also dry out your hair and make it frizzy. So if you’re planning to go on a hair detox for a month, do your hair a favour and keep away from heating products.
Give it a natural cleanse
You know how several dieticians tell you that lemon is the ultimate detoxifying agent for your body? It’s the same with your hair! A lemon rinse can work wonders for your scalp and hair! This vegetable is rich is hydroxyl acid, which has the power to purify and cleanse your scalp. Hence, applying some lemon juice on your scalp right after an oil massage works wonders for your mane.
Say yes to proteins
Your hair is made up of proteins and eggs are one of the biggest sources of proteins and vitamins. They prevent breakage and make your hair strong so no amount of pollution and sun damage can come in the way of you getting healthy hair. So if you’re going through a hair detox, it’s necessary to beat some egg yolk, add some honey to it and apply it to your scalp and hair. Leave this on for an hour and then wash off. Doing this once a week will help your hair quality get better.
