Haven’t we all sighed about having thick and shiny hair? Maybe we even did at some point - during the teenage years, during pregnancy (thanks to those hormones) or when we had a lot of time to ourselves.
But is thick, shiny and lustrous hair such a distant dream? Not if you follow a basic hair care regimen with products loaded with natural nutrients.
Let’s get to the basics. What should your hair care routine consist of?
Let’s start with Oiling.
What are the benefits of oiling?
Massaging oil into the hair regularly improves blood circulation and stimulates hair follicles for better growth.
So is regular oil enough?
Not if you are trying to fight damage and restore hair to its original glory. Oils with mineral oil as an element are complete no-nos. You will need something more effective. Look for oils that combine the benefits of multiple oils such as olive oil, rosemary oil, almond oil, bhringraj etc.
How do these nutrients help?
Vitamin F nourishes and strengthens the hair and protects it from breakage.
Cinnamon Bark Oil
Helps stimulate blood flow to hair follicles. It protects hair from bacterial infections as it has antifungal, antimicrobial properties. It also treats brittle and dry hair.
Rosemary has been used in hair care for centuries. Rubbed into the scalp, it helps increase blood circulation in the scalp. It helps strengthen dry and damaged hair.
Almond oil protects hair from long term damage, keeps it hydrated and clean. It also helps hair retain its natural shine, prevents splitting, and helps combat frizz naturally.
Antioxidant rich Bhringaraj strengthens and protects hair while rejuvenating, moisturizing and conditioning. It also adds lustre and shine, fights grey hair and reduces split ends.
The Mamaearth Root Restore Hair Oil contains the goodness of all 10 potent oils to give you that perfect nourishment.
Next comes Shampooing.
The thumb rule for choosing a nourishing shampoo must be an abundance of herbal elements and absence of harsh chemicals such as parabens, phthalates, dyes and sulfates. These chemicals, far from being good for the hair, are the causes of several chronic hair conditions.
Herbal ingredients such as horse chestnut, amla, olive leaves coupled with biotin are must-haves in a shampoo for hair rejuvenation.
What do these nutrients do?
Biotin is a protein that improves the keratin infrastructure of hair. The biotin in our bodies contributes to the production of healthy hair and nails. It promotes healthy hair by increasing the hair’s elasticity and protects them against dryness.
Horse chestnut seed extract controls excess oil production and soothes the scalp without any irritation.
Amla strengthens hair follicles, penetrates the scalp deeply and nourishes dry, itchy skin. It also keeps the hair soft, smooth and shiny.
Olive Leaf Extract
Olive leaf extract has smoothening and shine-enhancing qualities. It prevents protein loss in hair and nourishes them from inside.
Mamaearth's Happy Heads Shampoo is a gentle and mild formulation for all hair types. This natural formulation helps promote healthy hair and scalp by nourishing the hair.
Conditioning should be next.
Tangles and knots cause a lot of hair damage and loss. A good conditioner minus silicones should do the trick. But a great conditioner also provides intense conditioning and moisturises dry strands. Look for conditioners with argan oil, fenugreek, shea butter and cocoa butter.
What do these nutrients do?
Argan Oil, also known as 'liquid gold' treats dry scalp, split ends, frizzy hair and other hair problems like hair loss, itchy scalp and more.
Lack of protein causes hair thinning. Milk protein is very good for hair repair, it stimulates hair follicles, helps hair growth and reverses hair loss.
Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter
Shea and Cocoa Butter soothe dryness, repair breakage and mend split ends. Shea butter detangles hair by untying hair knots. Cocoa butter repairs damaged hair strands and strengthens hair shaft.
Fenugreek strengthens hair from the roots and treats hair follicles. It reduces split ends and frizz.
Mamaearth's No More Tangles Conditioner, full of these natural ingredients, gently repairs, regenerates and protects hair from damage, keeping hair healthy and soft.
It is time for some pampering with some hair tonic so that the hard work of the oil-shampoo and conditioner stays intact for longer.
Use a leave-in-hair tonic to reduce hair loss and promote hair growth. Look for tonics that are free of harmful chemicals like SLS, Paraben, Phthalates, Dyes, Mineral Oil. Elements like Korean Red Ginseng, Caffeine and Zinc PCA are essential.
What do these nutrients do?
Korean Red Ginseng
Korean Red Ginseng is a herb that improves hair’s regenerative capacity. It improves the health of hair follicles and cells, thus preventing hair loss.
Caffeine is easily absorbed by the scalp and can promote healthy-looking hair. It extends the life cycle of hair follicles and makes hair thicker and more resilient.
Zinc PCA blocks DHT (dihydroxytestosterone), which is a major cause for hair loss. It also assists in the reduction of hair fall and helps repair damaged follicles to increase hair thickness, shine, and density.
Mamaearth Hair Growth Tonic is a leave-in hair tonic that stimulates roots to promote new hair growth and prevent hair fall with no side effects
