- Oil your hair regularly
- Fenugreek seeds, FTW
- Keep heat styling to the minimum
- Choose the right products
- Consume the right food
Oil your hair regularly
Indulging your hair in a hot oil treatment once or twice a week makes a huge difference. Oiling your hair activates the hair follicles and increases circulation, which in turn reduces hair fall and promotes hair growth. You can use oils such as castor oil, bringharaj oil, or argan oil for more effectiveness.
Fenugreek seeds, FTW
Fenugreek seeds are a magic potion when it comes to stopping hair fall and promoting hair growth. They are a rich source of vitamins and minerals, and provide your hair and scalp with the essential nutrients. All you have to do is, soak fenugreek seeds in water at night, apply the strained water on the scalp the next day and leave it for 1-2 hours.
Keep heat styling to the minimum
Using heat to style your hair on a regular basis is a strict no-no for a months after delivery. Don’t reach for the dryer each time you wash your hair, let them dry naturally. Heat weakens the roots and makes them more susceptible to breakage.
Choose the right products
What you apply and use on your hair plays a major role in how your hair feels and looks. Choose shampoos, conditioners and serums rich in biotin as it is a superfood to stop hair fall and promote hair growth.
Consume the right food
Consuming nutrient rich food is not only beneficial to regaining strength and health post childbirth, but is also necessary for healthy hair. Include flax seeds, legumes, peas, green leafy vegetables, oranges, yeast, sprouts, curd, buttermilk, soya, to your regular diet. These are rich in omega-3 and fats. Eating plenty of dry fruits and taking more water throughout the day also lead to good hair.
