Secrets from around the world for healthy hair
Hair is made up of 97% protein. People from different parts of the world have wondered how to increase extra protein for building new hair. One idea has been to get extra protein into the hair using 6-8 drops of fresh lemon juice to an egg. This is beaten well and applied to the hair followed by washing with an herbal shampoo such as Nutrigro®.
To enrich hair people have massaged weekly with oils such as Rosemary Oil or Emu Oil.
More naturally they have mixed yoghurt, lemon and mustard oil, and applied gently on the hair.
For those who have preferred a hair tonic boiling one idea has been to take dry pieces of Indian Gooseberry (Amla) and put it in coconut oil. This enriches the power of Coconut oil- a hair moisturizer that has been traditionally believed to strengthen hair.
For places where they love rum a local hair tonic has been mixing two egg-yolks with two dessertspoonfuls of odourless linseed oil and two dessertspoonfuls of rum. This was soaked into the hair and scalp.
Aromatherapists like massaging with essential oils: They use 3 drops of rosemary oil, 3 drops lavender oil, 2 drops of cedarwood oil, 4 teaspoonfuls of grape seed oil and 2.5ml of jojoba oil in Sesame Oil base and massage the scalp with this.
Places where onions are eaten more eagerly people have been known to massage their hair and scalp with bulb onion juice.
They believe this strengthens the hair.
In wild desert places extract of nettles has been known to be applied to the scalp to prevent hair loss and stimulate hair growth.
