Similarly, adding conditioner to your shampoo routine can really benefit you. It safeguards your hair and keeps it moisturized. So the damage which is done by shampoo is balanced.
You can use coconut oil to nourish your hair and scalp. Coconut is the sole source of many important nutrients required in our body. Using coconut oil can turn out beneficial before the day of shampooing.
3. Diet :
An extremely important part, which is diet. The hair grows because the dead cells are pushed through the hair follicles when the new cells take over. These cells are made of amino acids and many other nutrients. Your body will need a lot of healthy vitamins and proteins in order to form the new healthy cells, which will push the old ones out (Hair).
Spinach, cabbage, carrot, fish, chicken, nuts, berries, Apple, Oranges, Almonds, leafy greens, eggs should be included in your diet.
