Tips to Care for Weak Hair

A treatment beyond intensive conditioning and regular oiling

Worried about your locks losing the sheen and vitality they once had? Within a few simple steps, you can proudly flaunt new hairstyles without worrying about further loss.

 Try Scalp Massage 

Scalp massage is a ritualistic tradition since antiquity to promote thicker hair and new hair growth by dilating the blood vessels lying beneath the skin. Hair shafts are nourished and fortified against pollutants and other catalysts of damage such as harsh weather, styling equipment etc. While massaging with fingertips, exert medium pressure in round movements for at least five minutes. The massage can also be performed while oiling or washing hair if you are pressed for time.

Limit Chemical Use

sulphates, mineral oil, parabens, formaldehyde etc., that found in the products. Excess reliance on these restoring products could ironically speed up the deterioration and worsen fizziness, weak roots and frayed ends. Avoid invasive parlour treatments that promise to bring back the lost glow and shine to tresses.

Vitamins can eradicate dull hair, thinning and weak hair or trigger and heal hair strands wrecked by stress and pollution. If you are scared by chunks of hair fall and stunted growth, consume leafy greens, snap peas, bell peppers, pumpkins, sweet potatoes and carrots in ample. A diet rich in vitamins is complemented by the application of hair vitamins.

Use Hair Vitamins 

Hair vitamins add volume and strength to the roots and wash away the dryness and grease. Vitamin A for example boosts hair growth while assuring optimal hydration of the scalp to do away with flakes and itchiness. A healthy scalp is a boon for hair growth. Vitamin b7/H or biotin is also essential in reducing loss of hair. To facilitate healthy hair from rots, trust the goodness of Vitamin B9.
