Beauties and beaus, we know that hair is your naturally gifted crown. That hair flip that is enough to get all eyes on you, the new styles that define your personality- curling, straightening, colouring, highlights! Accept it; your hair is the most versatile part of your personality. These efforts make your hair stylish and change them with changing trends that make your hair week and contribute to hair fall. The endless styling products, ammonia-based colours, and heat-based styling- all add to hair fall.
Don’t we all wait and wait, to get those perfect hair? We do right! However, to get anything or gain anything, we have to put in our share of efforts to make it work. Like how our bodies require proper nutrition to stay healthy and grow, our hair is not different, and it does require the right nutrients to develop. Oiling is considered to be the most effective way of nourishing your hair. Instead, the concept of oiling has been going for many years, from when our great grandparents were also kids.
Not only this, your lifestyle- not taking enough nutrition, stress and pollution also damages your hair causing hair fall. Stress leads to hair fall, and hair fall leads to stress, and you keep falling into this vicious vortex till you see hair everywhere- on your pillow, comb, t-shirt, bathroom drain, and almost everywhere!!! Relatable? Worry not! Because we are here to end just this struggle of yours!!
The best way to stop hair fall is to use a suitable hair fall control oil for yourself (yes, these might sound like “Nani ke nuskhe” to you but it is proven that an anti-hair fall oil is the ultimate magic potion)
Part 1: DIY Best oil for hair fall
If you are a person who loves homemade organic products, you can most definitely make the most out of these methods.
1. Curry Leaves and coconut oil:
Coconut oil, loaded with nutrients, is the ultimate elixir for your hair! It is the best hair oil for hair growth and thickness. To enhance its qualities, you can add a few curry leaves readily available in Indian Kitchens. Here is how you can make the “coconut and curry leaves potion” to reduce your hair fall magically:
i) Take a few dry curry leaves and crush them with your bare hands.
ii) Boil the crushed leaves in about 100ml of coconut oil and let cool
iii) Strain away the leaves and store the fat (that smells amazing due to the curry leaves) in a bottle, apply it overnight and wait for it to work its magic!!
2. Hibiscus hair oil:
Hibiscus, also known as the shoe flower, adorns many of our homes. These pretty red flowers not only look beautiful but also are loaded with antioxidants and beta carotenes that when added to your favourite oil, makes it a fast hair growth oil. To extract the benefits of the flower oil, do this:
i) Get some fresh hibiscus flowers; if you don’t have the plant at home, you can quickly get it from your nearby florist.
ii) Make a coarse paste of the flower in a pestle and mortar while you boil the coconut oil in a small pan.
iii) Carefully add the paste to the oil and heat it till you see a change in the oil colour.
iv) Strain, cool, and store the oil in a bottle. For the best results, use the oil a few hours before you wash your hair.
3. Onion and lavender oil:
Onion is one of the best ingredients to replenish your hair nutrient deficiencies with its high sulphur content. Follow the steps ahead to make this onion infused hair oil and use it to combat hair fall and give your hair a growth spurt:
i) Get about two medium-sized onions: peel and chop them and make a thick paste.
ii) Take a muslin cloth (or a fine strainer) and extract the onion juice by pressing firmly.
iii) Mildly heat your favourite oil- coconut, almond or olive oil- add the onion juice to it and stir gently.
iv) You can add a few drops of lavender essential oil to mask the smell of onions.
v) Use this concoction a few hours before you wash your hair for best results.
Use these twice or thrice a week as your hair growth oil natural remedy regime, and you won’t have to wait long before you start noticing some improvement.
Part 2: Using a commercial hair oil for hair fall:
If you want to save yourself from the hassle of concocting these oils, there are endless ready-to-use hair fall oils that can save your time (and your hair!!!)
The Himalaya anti-hair fall oil:
The Himalaya anti-hair fall oil is the best hair oil for hair in India. It strengthens hair roots and increases the tensile strength of your hair. To get the best of it, part your hair and apply oil on the scalp. Massage your scalp gently in circular motions using your fingertips so that the oil is absorbed into the scalp. To reap the benefits, leave in the oil for an hour or more before washing your hair. It prevents hair fall, strengthens hair follicles and promotes hair growth.
The Biotique Bio Bhringraj Therapeutic Oil for falling hair is the best oil for hair growth in India. It combines the best of modern science with Ayurveda and thus produces the desired effect on your hair. Apart from preventing hair fall and promoting hair growth, it improves your hair’s texture, nourishes your scalp, and prevents greying.
The Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Deep Condition Hot Oil:
The Parachute Ayurvedic Deep Conditioning Hot Oil is curated with rare deep conditioning herbs to heal and nourish damaged hair from within. Apart from preventing hair fall, it strengthens your hair and reduces itchiness on the scalp. It reduces dryness and makes hair soft, silky, and healthy. This vitamin-rich oil has exceptional growth-stimulating and anti-dandruff properties.
In the end, we want to let you know that hair fall is a widespread problem, and you should not stress over it (I know it is easy to say so) but you should not ignore it either. The mundane application of oil and your hair fall oil application process dramatically influences the products’ benefits. Remember to not hurry with the application process- massage the oil gently starting from your scalp and move up to the hair tips. This improves blood circulation to your scalp and naturally nourishes your hair, making it stronger. Make sure not to oil your hair when it has dirt or sweat in it.
Above all, make regular oiling of hair your habit! As it is always said, it is the consistency which matters a lot. All you have to do is, take out just a few mins twice a week and make sure to oil your hair properly by giving it a deep massage from your fingertips. Another tip, do warn your oil a little before applying it on the scalp.
