Beautiful hair is one that is shiny, has resilience and elasticity. The texture is smooth, there is body and bounce. In other words, it is well balanced. This delicate balance can be easily upset by various factors, like products, styling procedures, pollutants, as well as neglect and abuse. Regular hair care involves treatments that can restore the balance and maintain the good health of the hair. Hair is actually fed by the nutrients in the blood stream. That is why both nutrition and good blood circulation are extremely vital for promoting growth and adding body and shine.

Have a small bowl of sprouts daily, as it contains amino acids, one of the most important nutrients for the hair.

Hair conditioning is one of the important ways by which we can improve the look of the hair. Conditioning also helps to nourish the hair, so that it looks good. An important function of a conditioner is to make the scales of the cuticle smooth, so that the hair looks shiny and voluminous. Regular conditioning helps dry hair, split ends and brittleness. For hair that has been dyed, coloured, straightened or permed, conditioning is most important. 

To add volume and shine to dry, damaged and brittle hair, mix together one egg, two tablespoons castor oil, the juice of a lemon and one teaspoon glycerin. These ingredients should be well mixed. Massage this into the scalp and apply on the hair too. Wash your hair after half an hour. Rinse well with water to remove all residues.

Protein actually adds body to the hair, because it coats the hair and creates more volume. Applying egg or curd half an hour before shampoo adds volume. Egg is one of the most versatile ingredients. It contains silicon, sulphur and fatty acids that help to nourish the hair. The white of the egg has a powerful cleansing action too. Applied on the hair, egg coats the hair shaft and adds thickness, shine and body. Beat an egg with a little milk to form a thickish consistency and apply it on the hair. After half an hour, rinse the hair well with water. Add a few drops of eau-de-cologne to a mug of water and use it as a last rinse to get rid of unpleasant odour.

Each hair is made up of very delicate fibre and must be protected if its natural beauty is to be maintained. So, help yourself to the ingredients provided by nature and keep your hair in top condition.
