5. Eggs Aren’t Just For Breakfast…
I used to do this a lot as a teenager but somehow I forgot about it until doing my research for this blog post. It really does help with hair that’s been damaged which therefore helps with hair growth. Take an egg, (if you have longer hair use more than 1 egg) then add a drop or 2 of lemon juice. (this helps with the smell) Whisk the mixture together. Wash your hair using a non silicone shampoo – a clarifying shampoo is best. Squeeze the excess water from your hair. Apply the egg mixture to your scalp and hair, wrap your hair in a towel and wait 20 – 30 minutes. Rinse your hair well and then apply a light conditioner. Vicki’s tip: use only the egg white if you suffer from an oily scalp
6. Turn on the Tap & Drink More Water
Yeah, yeah, I know you’re sick of me saying this to you when it comes to skin and skin care! Here are the facts for why this works for your hair as well. Water hydrates the body and gets your circulatory stystem moving and also hydrates your hair folicles. Dry damaged hair won’t grow as quickly as healthy nourished hair. Drink more water. It’s a cheap and affordable way to ensure you nourish your hair from the inside out.
7. Massage Vitamin E Oil Into Your Scalp
Prick with a needle 1 or 2 vitamin E capsules into a small bowl, add a tablespoon of another oil such as grapeseed, sesame or olive oil and mix well. Massage well into your scalp and hair and let sink in overnight. Wash hair as normal in the morning. Try doing this once a week for 6 weeks and you should see above average hair growth results.
