You should try not to wash your hair every day because it dries out your scalp and strips your hair of its natural oils. If possible, you should wash your hair every two to three days with a shampoo that doesn’t contain sulfate because it strips the hair of moisture.
In addition to sulfate, you should avoid other products that contain alcohol, polyethylene glycol, bleach, and peroxide. Make sure you use conditioner after you shampoo to prevent split ends and breakage.
Natural Products for Hair Growth
Now that you’ve got the basics, here are some natural products to try that stimulate hair growth and enhance the condition of your hair.
Like any part of your body, your hair needs vitamins and nutrients to grow healthy. Supplements may help if you are not getting enough vitamins and nutrients from your diet, but you should consult with your doctor before taking supplements.
The supplements that may be helpful to stimulate hair growth include biotin, omega-3 and 6 fatty acids, zinc, B-vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin D, and ginseng.
Aloe vera is known to soothe the scalp and condition the hair. It can remove excess oil that blocks hair follicles, as well as reducing dandruff. You can use either pure aloe vera or a shampoo and conditioner that contains aloe vera, and apply to your scalp and hair a few times a week.
Coconut oil has been shown to improve both the health and luster of hair. It contains fatty acids that can reduce protein loss from inside the hair shaft. Massage the oil into your hair and scalp and leave it for a few hours or as an overnight leave-in treatment, then wash your hair as usual.
Rosemary is an essential oil that promotes hair growth. You can mix a few drops into a carrier oil and massage it into your hair and scalp before washing your hair. You can use rosemary oil a few times a week, but you should not use any essential oil directly on your skin.
The purpose of carrier oils is to dilute the essential oil, so you will want to use a greater amount of the carrier oil while only using a few drops of the essential oil. Carrier oils include olive oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, and sweet almond oil.
Geranium is also an essential oil that boosts circulation and promotes hair growth. It helps to both strengthen and hydrate your hair. Mix a few drops in a carrier oil and massage it into your hair and scalp. You can also add a few drops to your shampoo and conditioner.
