Chances are your hair is your most treasured possession, but all those care products you’ve bought seem to be anything but helpful in keeping it robust. Taking care of it never seemed harder, given that all the products contain damaging substances and it’s quite hard to get your hands on shampoos or conditioners made with actually beneficial effects. Ditch all the pricey chemicals on the shelves, because here are some all-natural, less expensive alternatives you can use in getting a great hair.
- Avocado oil
The avocado is a wonder fruit with numerous health benefits. A less known aspect concerning it is that it can be used for your hair, due to its nutrients, its fatty acids and amino acids that grant, in the long run, well-moisturized, glistening locks. It also contains folic acid, magnesium, and copper, besides proteins and vitamins.
- Jojoba oil
It is essential in avoiding split ends and dryness, the two blackest nightmares when it comes to having a lush mane. Massage it on your scalp so it can efficiently moisturize your hair. On top of that, it works perfectly in removing the sebum and stimulating hair upsurge.
- Macadamia oil
This oil comes from the eponymous fruit and it’s overloaded with nurturing nutrients that have been proved to help not only your hair per se, but its growth as well. It reconstructs the split ends and strengthens the newly-formed locks.
- Argan oil
Vitamin E is one of the most active fighters against damaged hair. This vitamin is also a potent antioxidant and has the ability to keep split ends and dryness at bay. As you might have seen already, this oil is a key ingredient in most types of hair conditioners nowadays. It also softens the skin on your scalp, forewarning the production of dandruff.
- Rosemary oil
Dandruff is produced by the dryness of the scalp. This oil is not only a wonderful moisturizer, but also a friendly cleaning agent for your scalp – it feeds the follicles and generates strong strands. It is such a powerful oil that it increases the growth of the hair by 22.4%.
- Coconut oil
It’s probably the second most used type of oil in shampoos and conditioners, after argan oil. Unlike the latter, which is mostly a moisturizer, coconut oil is a powerful strengthener. It hydrates the scalp, it encourages growth and thickens the hair, protecting it from breakage. As a bonus: it can be used as a styling agent, too.
- Olive oil
You’ve probably kept in the kitchen until now, unaware of the fact that it is an almost royal product for your hair. It admonishes dandruff and has fantastic conditioner effects. After use, it leaves the hair clean, nurtured and extremely shiny.
Yes, all these essential, all-natural oils are crucial in having a luxurious, thick, strong hair, but you should refrain from using them if your hair is naturally oily, or at least from using them excessively because they could not be as efficient as for the rest.
