It might be too brazen to say the state of our hair is a reflection of how we treat it. Come to think of it, where’s the lie? Unless you’re experiencing post-partum shedding or alopecia or other health-related issues, how healthy your hair is depends on how well you treat it. Just like plants thrive on water and sunshine, our hair also thrives first and foremost on moisture plus good hair products and practices. As it is with anything, consistency is key. In case you haven’t been treating your hair regularly and do not know which treatment to go in for, let’s make things easier for you
Deep Conditioning Treatment
Generally, deep condition helps to hydrate, strengthen and improve the overall health of your hair. If you suffer from dry hair in particular, deep conditioning regularly would be of immense help. It also helps prevent damage to your hair including the likelihood of breakages and split ends. The nourishment gained from deep conditioning helps in promoting hair elasticity as well as adding on much needed shine and luster which might be lost from over-manipulation of our hair. If you’re in doubt as to what type of treatment to go in for, deep conditioning treatment is always a good idea.
Hot Oil Treatment
Another great option to go in for if you’re experiencing dry and brittle hair is hot oil treatment. It usually is a combination of natural oils or plant-based oils such as castor and coconut oils plus a blend of essential oils just like the Hot Oil Treatment from Eya Naturals. Hot oil treatments help dry hair and scalp regain moisture, increases blood flow in the scalp to promote the growth of healthier hair as well as reduce frizz. If you’re sensitive to certain oils, we recommend doing a patch test before.
Dry Scalp Treatment
This is beneficial if you have dandruff or a dry and flaky scalp. Dandruff is usually as a result of too much or too little oil production which often irritates the scalp. The dry scalp treatment often has anti-fungal/cleansing oils such as peppermint and tea tree oils to soothe the scalp leaving it fresher and healthier. For longevity, you can alternatively go in for the Dry Scalp Set which works together to help relieve dry, itchy and flaky scalp. The set also helps reduce dandruff, while promoting soft, manageable, tangle-free and healthy hair.
Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse
If you’re looking for hair treatment which prevents fungal and bacterial growth as well as makes your hair less prone to breakages, then Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Rinse is the best choice to make. ACV rinse clarifies your scalp, removes dead skin cells as well as lowers the pH of your scalp which ultimately makes your hair smoother and easier to detangle.
Protein Treatments help in improving the elasticity and strength of your hair to prevent split ends and hair breakage. They work best when done sparingly and as directed. Putting your hair through far too many protein treatments at very short intervals would damage your hair. When done in moderation, the benefits to the hair are great. Your hair becomes stronger and thicker!
Experimenting with your hair as a naturalista is common place. This helps you better understand your hair and what works or doesn’t work for it. Try out DIY treatments with some household foods including eggs, honey, avocado, banana and the likes. Be careful not to put too much stress on your hair.Although this list isn’t exhaustive, it gives a pretty good idea of some of the hair treatments your hair needs. Try out a couple of these treatments based on the issues you’re having with your hair and let us know how it goes. You can also visit Eya Salon, North Kaneshie or Spintex branch for a good hair care day.
