Natural Tips to Make Hair Strong, Long, and Shiny

There are many excellent methods for improving your hair's health and beauty—simple things which you can try at home. With just a little effort, over time you will see positive results.

Good Diet for Good Hair

One of the most important things to do to improve the health and beauty of your hair is to change your diet and make sure you are eating foods that are rich in nutrients. Certain foods are very important for healthy hair, including eggs, yogurt, lentils, fresh vegetables, and fresh fruits. Drink plenty of water to remove your body's toxins. In addition to eating healthily, you might add some extra minerals like zinc, selenium, and vitamins that are both fat soluble and water soluble. Make sure you're getting enough of the following ingredients:

  • Iron
  • Vitamins D, E, and A
  • B-Complex Vitamins
  • Zinc
  • Niacin
  • Biotin
  • Protein

Tip for Shedding, Thinning, or Weak Hair

Sometimes, you might notice that your hairbrush is accumulating an alarming amount of hair, or that your hair seems to be coming in thinner or finer, or you might notice that your hair has become so dry and brittle that it breaks easily.

Here is a tip to help prevent shedding, thinning, and breakage:

Mix two teaspoons of olive oil, two teaspoons of coconut oil, and one teaspoon of food-grade castor oil. Mix well and massage this oily mixture onto your whole scalp with your fingertips. Do it for about 20 minutes while also pulling and massaging the oil onto the shafts and ends of the hair. Leave the oils on your head for an hour and then wash with warm water and a little shampoo. Give a final rinse with cool water to lock in the moisture. Repeat this process three times a week and you will notice remarkable improvements.

For less frizz and more shine: Lemon and olive oil.

Tip for Anti-Frizzing and Getting Shinier Hair

In our attempt to make our hair as shiny and silky as possible, we sometimes use ironing tools which, over time, inflict some collateral damage on your hair. This home recipe for silky, shiny hair can help.

Mix the juice of one lemon with two tablespoons of olive oil. Massage your scalp and hair with this mixture for ten minutes, then wash with shampoo. After your hair is dry, take one drop of castor oil and apply only on the ends of your hair, just before you style. Believe me, this will help make your hair silkier and less frizzy, and if you keep up this regimen, your hair will become stronger and shinier.

Tip for Thinning Hair

If your hair is getting thinner, try this:

  • Apply mustard oil to scalp, massage with fingertips, and leave in for an hour.
  • After washing with shampoo, do a final rinse with a cup of vinegar. Leave it in for a few minutes, then rinse again with lukewarm water.
  • Do this three times a week and your hair will become thicker, longer, and shinier.
