Mummy says….Lately, I have noticed that my hair is getting a bit dull. I have had a vey stressful year with one thing and another, and have realised that it has had an effect on my hair. My hair has suffered with each pregnancy anyway and despite trying all the conditioners and hair care products the market has to offer, the effect isn’t long lasting.
I suffer with that ultra fine baby hair which shows when I pop my hair up in a bun. I long for shine, volume and fullness and have found some natural ways of helping my hair be my crowning glory. I thought I would share them with you:
*Start with a hot oil massage for your hair. Used a mix of olive oil and almond oil and heat it slightly. I will try massaging my scalp with the hot oil, rubbing gently for at least 10- 15 minutes twice a week. It is essential to leave the oil in your hair for at least two hours before you wash it off.
*Mix mashed banana and with some honey. Apply the smooth paste on your hair, it is guaranteed that it is a wonderful mask for dry and rough hair. Leave the mask on for half an hour. Your hair will feel soft and silky after washing.
*Let your hair dry naturally. Squeeze all the excess moisture out of the hair with a towel. If you do have to use the dryer, keep it at least 15 centimetres away from your hair.
*Next, think about your diet. Start your day with a healthy breakfast with milk, egg, and handful of nuts. Make sure that you have green vegetables, natural oils, seasonal fruits and fish like Salmon and Tuna. These are all super beneficial for your hair.
*Cover your hair with a scarf, especially when it is too windy or sunny.
*Switch to using a shampoo with ingredients like B5 and panthenol to help keep your hair smooth.
*Using a humidifier that helps prevent static hair and adds moisture to the air.
*Increasing your consumption of water will also have a positive effect on your hair.
