5 HOME REMEDIES FOR INSTANT HAIR GROWTH

I love the feeling of fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.

Everybody wants to have smooth, shiny, long hair. In order to get this, you will have to invest your time and take good care of your hair. But because of the busy schedule, daily stress, improper lifestyle, irregular sleep patterns and pollution we are unable to maintain our hair. This leads to hair fall, growth of immature hair, dandruff, graying of hair, split ends and many more problems.

In order to get long, healthy and shiny hair we need to provide nutrients to the hair follicles through our scalp in order to boost the hair growth process and solve all types of hair problems.

I have listed top 5 easy home remedies with very few ingredients through which you can boost your hair growth.

HOME REMEDIES

While using any of the remedy or even while applying hair oil always massage your hair slowly and gently in circular motion for at least 5 minutes. By doing this you are transferring all the nutrients into the hair follicles through the scalp. This will help in cell growth which leads to growth of healthy and long hair.

1. RICE WATER

PLAIN RICE WATER

  • Take 2 tablespoon of uncooked rice in a bowl. You can use any rice of your choice like organic rice, inorganic rice, brown rice or white rice.
  • Now wash that rice thoroughly. Make sure there is no dirt remaining.
  • Now add 2 cups of water in that bowl of rice.
  • Gently scrub the rice using your finger. This will help all the nutrients to seep out of the rice into the water. Carry out this scrubbing for at least 2 minutes.
  • Now leave the mixture for 30 minutes. That would be enough time for all the nutrient to get into the water.
  • Now strain the mixture and your plain rice water is ready.
