A light head massage with onion seed oil will
increase blood circulation and strengthen
the hair follicles, thus preventing hair loss and
promoting hair growth. However, the head
massage must be gentle, since brisk, aggressive
massaging can cause the hair strands to loosen.
Avoid choosing hair products that contain
sulphate, alcohol, or fragrances. Pick ones that
are specific to your scalp’s needs—coconut oil
with neem oil is ideal for dandruff, coconut oil
with lavender and chamomile oil for an
inflamed scalp, and onion seed oil for hair growth.
Wash your hair every 2-3 days depending on the
humidity and how much you sweat. Pick a
shampoo that is mild and suits your scalp type. Get
into the habit of regularly oiling your hair as well.
This will help heal your scalp and regulate the
imbalanced sebum levels.
Avoid aggressively detangling your hair—dry or
wet—as it will loosen the hair from the roots.
Instead, use your fingers to sort out any knots and
then comb your hair. Dilute your shampoo with
water before applying it to the hair and to dry it,
gently pat a towel to absorb excess water.
Antioxidants are the secret saviour of your hair
that helps boost hair growth by maintaining the
collagen in the body and the connective tissues of
the hair follicles. They also protect the scalp cells in
the blood vessels and prevent the destruction of
melanin in the cortex of our hair strands,
improving colour retention and making the
strands stronger and healthier.
To avoid your hair follicles from getting
clogged—and to allow the scalp to breath
better—exfoliate your scalp with a scalp scrub once
a week, getting rid of impurity build-up. This way,
you'll be free from scalp concerns including
dandruff, greasiness, dryness, and hair thinning.
