I knew a lady who started growing her hair when she was almost 50 and had a very nice, long, healthy head of hair after just a few years. Of course, as we get older, the texture and condition of our hair changes, but it is far from true that an older woman cannot have lush, shiny, soft and healthy hair. In this article, we give you tips on how to have a beautiful and healthy head of hair and what you need to do to make your hair truly one of your jewels.
Regular scalp massages are very effective in hair growth. It stimulates the scalp and even has a positive effect on hair thickness. Regular massages reduce stress and tension, improve blood flow and stimulate hair growth.
Aloe vera is very effective in treating and stopping hair loss as it soothes the scalp and can also eliminate dandruff. Aloe vera gel can be massaged into the scalp or added to shampoo. After massaging, rinse thoroughly from the scalp when applying this herb.
Coconut oil contains healthy fatty acids that penetrate into the hair shaft, nourishing it and effectively eliminating hair loss. Coconut oil can also be massaged into the scalp, but you can also make an oil pack with it. You can apply it to the entire length of the hair, then put on a shower cap and leave it on for at least half an hour to allow the coconut oil to work its magic.
You can nourish your hair not only from the outside, but also from the inside, with the right nutrients. Fish oil is excellent for this purpose, as it contains high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. In fact, it is an antioxidant that not only promotes hair growth, but also makes hair thicker and more vibrant when consumed regularly.
Ginseng also helps to promote healthy hair growth, as does the juice squeezed from onions, or onion juice. True, it doesn’t have a pleasant smell, but it is very useful. Massage it thoroughly into the scalp and leave it on for 20 minutes as a poultice. Afterwards, wash it off with your usual shampoo so you won’t smell the strong oniony smell, but you will notice its beneficial effects after a few weeks, as it stimulates hair growth and makes your hair shiny and healthy.
Rosemary and geranium oils also stimulate hair growth and scalp circulation. Both can be dripped into your shampoo or used in scalp massages, but be careful as they can cause irritation – but they are very useful if you want a long, beautiful and healthy head of hair.
