Don’t lose your hair, honey!
The pandemic has given us enough time to reflect on our daily routine that is impacting our health in the long term. If you are someone looking for lifestyle changes or simply want to focus more on yourself this year, then keep reading.
Climate change is inevitable and not in our hands, but our health is. With seasonal changes, your hair requires constant nourishment in order to remain sleek and strong.
In addition to pollution, there are several other factors that can reduce the hair quality and lead to hair loss. This includes the kind of hair products that you use, the water quality, the food you consume on a daily basis and stress to name a few.
While you will find many companies in the market promoting hair products for strong hair, it is important to note that nothing works like the natural and chemical-free remedies.
So how can you prevent hair loss naturally?
Using natural ingredients will give your hair the right nourishment with no side effects. That is such a big plus to try the ingredients for most of us. One such ingredient to help you improve your hair health is honey.
Yes, you read that right. Honey is not just a healthier alternative for your sweet tooth but also reduces hair fall! Use honey to maintain that moisturizing texture in your hair that you always yearn for. Honey also helps your hair be silky and healthy. The antioxidant properties of honey prevent hair loss, hair breakage and in general, make your hair look soft and smooth. As if this wasn’t enough, the antibacterial properties of honey also encourage faster hair growth and reduce scalp infections.
It’s time to ditch the chemical-infused products and focus on natural ingredients like honey for your hair health.
So how can you use honey to prevent hair fall?
DIY (Do It Yourself) hair mask is the best choice. Let’s look at two hair mask recipes using honey that can be a game-changer:
1. Honey & Egg Hair Mask
Egg provides protein and vitamins that can help control hair fall while honey helps with softening your hair. The combination of the two make for the most perfect hair mask.
2.5 tbsp of coconut or olive oil
3 tbsp honey
Beat the eggs and oil together. Slowly add honey to it and mix well. Add this mixture to your hair. Make sure it reaches till the scalp. Cover your hair with a shower cap or a towel for about 60 minutes before rinsing. Wash your hair with shampoo to get rid of the egg smell or any excess oil in your hair. This leaves you with soft and shiny tresses. You will also see a reduction in hair fall after using this hair mask for a month or so.
2. Honey & Yoghurt Hair Mask
Yoghurt contains protein which acts as a strong hair nourishing agent while honey makes your hair soft and shiny. This recipe works great for dry hair and is said to prevent hair fall.
2 tbsp honey
4 tbsp plain yoghurt
Mix yoghurt and honey well together. Use a brush or your hands to massage this mixture all over your scalp. Try to cover as many spaces as possible, including the hair tips. Cover your head with a towel or a shower cap for 30-45 minutes before rinsing. Avoid using a hairdryer to dry your hair.
