In this era of hustling lifestyle, when everyone’s utmost priority is their work, some important physical attributes of ours often get lost in the shuffle. After the dust and pollution that city life blows on us, our body demands more attention and engrossment from our end.
Our skin goes dull, dark circles boundary the eyes and one of the most important part of our look- our hair, start diminishing faster than ever. Spotting a few stray hair on your hair comb is natural, but when an alarming amount of hair gets entangled in the hair brush, it demands your paramount attention and care.
What do I do now? Do I need to go to a doctor straight away? Will I go bald?
Fortunately, we have got you covered. Follow these basic remedies and give yourself and your hair some time, rather than waiting for a miracle tablet.
How To Grow Hair Longer – Get your basics right!
The swamped lifestyle you possess allows you with time to merely wash your hair, but oiling it properly might not even be a part of consideration. Even if you do oil your hair regularly, chances are you don’t apply it the right way. So, what is the right way? All you need to do is add 2-3 spoons of castor oil, or any other oil that is available, in a bowl, now heat it until reaches a lukewarm temperature. This warmish oil nourishes your scalp in the best possible way as the goodness of oil penetrates the scalp and nourishes it from within. Now part your hair in little sections and massage the oil evenly over your scalp. Note that, you primarily apply oil on your hair scalp as it would be far more beneficial, than applying it on hair length. Follow this pointer and you’re bound to end up with shiny, velvety hair.
The right time to shampoo
We all have been through the time when morning shampoos had left us late for job. The lousy process of drying it after washing leaves us with no choice but to harshly stroke it with towel or use a hairdryer. Stop this please! First and foremost, never comb your hair when they’re wet. Also note that shampooing at most twice a week is adequate for your hair, exceeding this limit may deprive your hair of its natural oil. Now, instead of punishing your hair in the early hours, why not cleanse them a night before? Let them dry naturally and avoid all the rush that may befall.
Conditioner? No Make time.
Ever felt that roughness on skin that your soap leaves you with after taking a bath? Yes your scalp feels it too after you shampoo your hair. To restore all the moisture that faded after shampooing, a conditioner is must. Don’t worry, all it takes is a coin-sized amount of conditioner, rub it on your palm and start applying it on your hair length in a downward direction while crunching the hair simultaneously. After five minutes, clean it and feel the gloss and elegance the conditioner gifted your hair.

How To Grow Hair Longer with Rice
Take 2 cups of rice and wash them thoroughly. Now, boil the rice in 2 big cups of water for exactly 5 minutes, such that the rice don’t soak all the water. The water that carries all the nutrition that rice possesses, has to be strained away quickly. Take the filtered rice water and leave it to cool. Now apply the rice water on a dry scalp and gradually on the hair length. Massage your hair for about 5 minutes and leave them for 20 more minutes. Hair masks are easy to manage and give outstanding results. After 20 minutes, wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner and you’re good to go.
