Wow! Two weeks 🙂 I am so excited!!
So, we are two weeks down and we have covered topics like scalp care and why is your hair not growing and why you should not take vitamin supplements. The following week would be seeing how to take care of dry and rough hair and how to take care of your thinning hair!
And, coming to the major part, we have the checklist for this week’s activity ready as well as the last weeks. So, have you done all of them? Please refer to both the images.
Now, coming to another part of the post. The participants were asked to share their hair care secrets as part of the Soulflower giveaway! This was just for the subscribers of the event. Let us check out what their hair secrets are!
Hair Care Secret 1 – Using Dry Shampoo
I have already shared this one by Nayantara! You can check out here about the Dry shampoo.
Hair Care Secret 2 – Hair Pack with Curd, Amla, Curry Leaves and Methi Powder
First, I warm up some oil and slowly massage my scalp with it and leave it for 2 hours. (I dont leave overnight as I have acne-prone skin and I end up with pimples in the morning). I then apply a hair pack of curd, amla powder (or fresh amla), curry leaves powder and methi powder. I leave it for around an hour and then wrap an hot towel around my head and leave for 15 mins for steaming effect. I then wash my hair with an SLS free shampoo. The oil massage and hair pack has greatly helped in reducing my hairfall and makes my hair more soft and smooth. I have also observed some hair growth. I also use a wooden comb every night to stimulate my scalp.
Hair Care Secret 3 – Coconut Oil for Hair Growth
This is something which I used to do when I had long hair. I used to apply and massage warm coconut oil on my scalp and hair the night before and then shampoo it off the next morning. I used to do this thrice a week. In just 1 month’s time, I noticed new tiny hairs on my hairline and the hairfall had also reduced to a considerable extent.
Hair Care Secret 4 – Hot Oil Treatment with Olive and Almond
Hot oil therapy twice a week (Olive oil + Almond Oil). I guess it worked well on my hair. My hairs are shedding less and are becoming manageable.
Hair Care Secret 5 – Fenugreek for Hair Growth
Applying paste of soaked fenugreek seeds helps in reducing hair fall and promotes hair growth. It also makes the hair super soft and shiny. Seeds can also be soaked in coconut water for added benefits. This really worked for me. Though messy to wash, it’s really worth it. Another thing that helps hair become manageable and soft and reduces hair fall is regular use of hair oil with coconut, amla and bhringraj in it.
Hair Care Secret 6 – Aloe Vera and Hot oil
Hair Care Secret 7 – Henna Gloss
Including a supplement did. Biotin, deficiency of which is but common in the body does help with hair and nail growth, both. A supplement of Biotin has not only helped with hair growth but also healthy hair.
Another not-so-secretive secret would be coconut oil and sesame oil for hair massages prior to shampooing my hair. The goodness of both coconut and sesame has helped rejuvenate my hair. I also indulge in a henna gloss once a month. It seemed to have done wonders for my hair.
Hair Care Secret 8 – Using Curd
So, the winners for the giveaway are ones who shared the secret 1 and secret 2! So, congratulations girls and keep sharing all your hair care secrets 🙂 And, keep a lookout for my mail in your inbox!
