Here is a list of things you can do to achieve a healthy, lustrous hair:

  1.     Nourishing with oil:

Oil Massaging in your scalp stimulates the blood circulation in your scalp.

  1.     Verify your hair type and go to parlors regularly:

Get a perfect haircut from a licensed salon. Verify the type of your hair and scalp, whether it is excessively oily or dry. If your scalp is dry, then focus on nourishing it more than shampooing, and if the oil secretion rate of your scalp is higher, then choose a moisture-drenching shampoo.

In case you are not sure enough, take an expert’s suggestion. Also, focus on conditioning the lower ends of your hair.

  1.     Brushing is beneficial:

Brushing or combing your hair for numerous times a day will help it shine and grow more by stimulating the blood supply and distributing sebum along the hair shaft, and try to use a wooden comb instead of a plastic one. Tie your hair in a single knot before going to bed.

  1.     Apply a hair mask:

Prepare natural hair mask in the home with readily available products found in your kitchen.

Mix up two tablespoons of yogurt, one tablespoon of honey, and one teaspoon of olive oil in a bowl, after that, apply it on all over your hair. Leave for 30 minutes and rinse with mild shampoo and water.

Green tea is enriched with antioxidants and prevents premature greying. Thus, take some hot water, soak green tea leaves or tea bags in it, and let it cool down. Rinse your hair with this liquid right after shampooing; it will work like a natural moisturizer for your hair.
