HOME REMEDIES FOR DAMAGED HAIR
Hair damage do occur when there is loss of protein in the hair.Protein is essential for hair growth.So in this article, am going to point out home remedies for damaged hair which I find useful.
Toilet soap in place of shampoo-
Most ladies make use of shampoo to wash their hair but if you notice that you do have hair breakage often,I bet shampoo could be the cause.Due to your hair is no that thick.when you use shampoo it tends to cut.so I will suggest you use toilet soap in place of shampoo.
This is how you spose to go about it.Get your toilet soap,conditioner and mild hot water.Really, your hair doesn’t need that much of heat so that’s why you should use mild hot water or warm water.Wet your hair with cold water and rub the toilet soap around your hair to foam,then gently dug your fingers into your hair and scrub your scalp with easy and this will remove dirt as shampoo does. Rinsh your hair with cold water and apply the conditioner which soften your hair and makes it easy to comb .Wait 5 minutes then rinse your hair with the hot mild water and dry your hair gentle by damping your towel on your hair and then comb with ease.This is due to wet hair do break easily, so you to first dry them out before you comb.
Don’t tie your hair too tight-
When you find out you do have hair breakage,you tend to limit or stop some hair style you make.Like the Ponytails, braids, or other hairstyles that pull and stretch your hair too tightly causing it to break.
I came to realize through some research that protein is essential for the proper growth of the hair and finger nails.So there is a need for some changes in your diet.More intake of protein contained is essential to your diet.Protein sources such as the egg,milk,beans,chicken and some protein supplements.Protein helps to repair damaged tissues and for growth,so more intake of protein will repair the damaged hair follicle and add to the growth of the hair
Coconut oil head massage-
A coconut oil contains lauric acid which helps to strengthen the hair and prevent damage.It also protects the hair from sun rays or heat that could damage the hair.The lauric acid penetrates the hair shaft and prevent reduced or loss of protein in the hair.The coconut oil is used in pre wash and post wash.This means that before you apply shampoo, apply the coconut oil first to your hair then and then after wash apply it again.You can learn to how to make coconut oil with this link-

Apply An Egg Mask-
Eggs make a great conditioning mask for weak hair that breaks easily. Their protein content isbelieved to make hair follicles stronger and reduce split ends. To make an egg hair mask, mix 2–3 eggs in a bowl till it has a smooth, lotion-like consistency. Spread evenly across hair and wash it off after a couple of hours.You can also whisk an egg yolk with moisturizing and protein-rich yogurt to get a double dose of protein. Leave this mixture in for around 15–20 minutes and then rinse off for stronger, well-conditioned hair.
