Thinning hair – Coconut oil

Hair thinning and hair loss are common hair concerns. And dandruff is the primary reason for hair loss. The white flakes dry out your scalp and cause hair follicles to loosen leading to breakage. Coconut oil is a well-known remedy for numerous hair problems. Hot oil treatment with coconut oil is the best way to treat hair loss. Heat ¼ cup coconut oil and massage it into your hair. Cover your head with a shower cap to retain the moisture.

Why Coconut oil

Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid which has antibacterial properties that keep the bacteria away from your scalp. The oil is packed with nutrients and proteins which can prevent hair fall, giving you longer and thicker hair.

We believe that to get smooth locks you need to treat what is causing the dryness. Humidity and lack of moisture are the catalyst for dry hair. In this case almond oil is the solution for you. Massage almond oil into your hair before washing or you can mix it with mashed avocado and apply the paste onto your hair and then wash it off after 30 minutes. Do this every time you wash your hair.

Why Almond oil

The fatty acids in this oil will moisturise your scalp, preventing breakage. Almond oil is also rich in vitamin E which will help reduce the harsh effects of pollution and heat.

Lately olive oil has gained a lot of attention for treating hair concerns like damaged hair. We are not saying it is a recent discovery—olive oil has been used in Ayurveda for ages, it has just gained the spotlight more recently. Damaged hair need something more than just a massage of olive oil. You can go for the hot olive oil treatment. Take ½ cup olive oil and rub it onto your scalp and through the strands. Rinse it off and shampoo and condition as usual. Do this once a week.

Why Olive oil

Olive oil contains antioxidants that improve the elasticity of your hair. The oil also acts as a natural conditioner and keeps your tresses nourished.
