Let's not forget, after this period of confinement , life will resume. Let's take advantage of this to prepare to be at the top of our beauty.
1. Take vegetable oil baths
Vegetable oils are our beauty allies. They can be used daily on the entire body (face, body and hair). They are therefore essential, but they still need to be used well.
On the hair side, the properties of vegetable oils are numerous. They help repair the hair fiber , protect the scalp and the hair fiber, fight against hair loss and promote growth. Be careful not to overuse it though.
Here are some tips for using vegetable oils in an oil bath (before your shampoo):
- Warm 5 to 10 tablespoons of one or more vegetable oils.
- Apply to dry or damp hair on the lengths and ends. If you want to fight against hair loss, also apply to the scalp.
- Leave for 1 hour and shampoo.
Choose vegetable oils according to your hair problems and your hair type. If your hair is curly, frizzy, avocado oil is perfect. If your hair is rather straight and fine, opt for jojoba oil . In case of hair loss, choose anti-hair loss oils such as castor oil . Mixed with sesame oil , the latter will be easier to apply.
2. Do a sebum treatment
Does the sebum cure mean something to you? It's a fashionable hair ritual for several years, which consists of banishing the use of shampoo for 1 month. The goal is to help sebum production self-regulate in order to keep hair healthy and healthy.
Why do it at this time? Because the hair is no longer in contact with the outside air, pollution, sweat or other aggression which could make the hair dirty. What's more, even if you pass someone while going shopping, no one will notice from 1m away that your hair is greasy/.
Please note, not washing your hair does not imply not taking care of it. The sebum treatment will only be effective if you respect this strict rule: do not apply anything to your hair and brush it every day. Brushing will allow sebum to flow along the hair fiber. The ideal is to use a boar bristle brush, rather than plastic.
What are the results ? According to some fans, the sebum treatment would promote hair growth , fight against hair loss , and have more volume and shine.
3. Relax with scalp massages.
Massaging your scalp helps stimulate blood microcirculation in the hair bulb, in order to promote blood irrigation and better nourish your bulb, which will give rise to stronger, healthier hair.
What actions should you take? Scalp massage is a simple, non-aggressive gesture. This is not about rubbing your scalp or scratching it.
Place the pads of your fingers on your scalp . Without lifting your fingers, make circular movements. As you go, move your fingers on either side of the head and repeat the circular movements again without lifting your fingers.
2 minutes of massage per day is enough to restore healthy hair, while promoting growth.
