5 ways to achieve healthy long hair | Best kept Indian Secrets | The Shell Hair

Healthy long hair, who doesn’t want it, right? But we are so preoccupied with fancy shampoos, serums, and conditioners in today’s modern world that we have forgotten the simple tips and tricks that our grandmothers and mothers used to swear by. Today, however, all those childhood memories of oil champis and amla hair washes will be brought back!

1. Castor Oil for healthy long hair

If you come from an Indian family, you’ve probably heard of or tried this magical potion known as castor oil. Castor oil has been scientifically proven to promote faster hair growth. It benefits our body in a variety of ways because it contains ricinoleic acid, one of the essential amino acids required by humans. So, if you’re always struggling to grow your hair out, try switching to castor oil.

However, be aware that castor oil has a thick consistency and should be mixed with other lighter oils to avoid stickiness.

2. Regular Hair Massages

Head massages, also known as ‘champi’ in India, have a number of advantages. A champi, in addition to increasing blood flow to your head and increasing hair length, acts as an ultimate stress reliever, reduces hair fall, prevents and treats migraines, and even detoxifies your entire body by stimulating your lymphatic drainage system.

3. Combing your hair 100 times a day!

While some modern theories claim that using a hair brush frequently can cause hair fall and breakage, we disagree. Our grandmothers used to tell us that brushing our hair frequently would stimulate our scalp and promote healthy hair growth. Aside from that, brushing your hair frequently aids in the removal of dirt and debris from the scalp, which can clog your hair follicles and inhibit hair growth.

Brushing your hair properly also promotes the release of natural hair oils, which keep your scalp healthy and nourished. You only need to take 3 minutes out of your personal grooming routine to brush the unhealthy hair away to reap the benefits of regular hair brushing.

4. Henna and egg masks

Henna, also known as mehendi in India, has been used as a natural alternative to artificial hair dyes since time immemorial. When combined with an egg (which is an excellent source of protein), henna creates a powerful hair mask. This mask, when used on a regular basis, nourishes your scalp, eliminates dandruff, and acts as a natural hair conditioner.

5. Braiding your hair

Braiding your hair, myth or not, is said to make it grow faster. While there is no scientific evidence to support the theory, it does prevent hair breakage and protects your hair from dirt and pollution to some extent. As a result, braiding keeps your hair healthy and helps it grow.
