One thing that most of us have struggled with from time to time is dry and rough hair. You might have noticed that even after using many oils on your hair, it still feels rough.
When your hair is hard, it becomes difficult to comb. Natural hair, particularly, tends to dry out a lot and, in this case, becomes harder to manage.
If you’ve struggled with this before, we’re here to help. We have some natural and easily available remedies so you get to save a lot too! Here are amazing soft hair hacks that you need to know.
- Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera has been known to be the powerhouse of everything. It has so many health and cosmetic benefits which are what make it so popular. When it comes to hair care, aloe is great for not only soft hair, but also shine. It contains powerful components that deeply hydrate the hair, leaving it soft and silky.
You can choose to use it in many ways. One way is by using it as a hair mask with honey and natural yoghurt. This will effectively condition your hair and keep it soft, naturally. Also, you can use it as a leave-in conditioner when mixed with water.
Harvest some Aloe Vera gel directly from the plant if you prefer the organic route or buy some prepackaged gel which works just as well.
Speaking of yoghurt, it is another great way to make your hair soft without doing too much. Natural and unsweetened yoghurt, in particular, contains cultures and essential elements like zinc that help to hydrate your scalp, roots and your hair in general. Yoghurt is great as a treatment so mix it with some egg yolks and let it sit for 20 minutes before rinsing it off.
- Coconut oil
This is also another holy grail when it comes to hair care. Coconut oil is one of the most powerful and naturally hydrating oils you can find. It’s able to properly penetrate your hair and instantly transform it. Although coconut oil doesn’t work for everyone, it remains a favourite for many.
One way to use it is by wetting your hair a little to moisten it and allow better penetration, then moderately applying coconut oil to seal the moisture.
- Washing correctly
Even after using many natural products on your hair, it’s important to be keen on how you wash your hair. The correct way to wash hair is by using warm water rather than hot water. Hot water strips all the moisture and good oils from your scalp and hair, and with time, your hair will start to feel dry and damaged again.
Washing your hair too often and over-shampooing it will also cause your hair to be brittle and dry. Also, you need to moderately use shampoo and avoid the ones with harsh chemicals.
By being careful and changing how you handle your hair on wash days, you’ll be able to naturally keep it moist and soft throughout.
