If buying expensive hair serums and shampoos have been burning a hole in your pocket, we have got you covered! The secret and economical option which you have been waiting for to give your hair the texture and volume you want is right there hidden in your kitchen. Yes, you read that right.
You would find it hard to believe but the salt which you use to enhance the flavour of your food can actually prove out to be your most economical hair partner too. Think we’re tricking you? Let’s take a look:
1. Goodbye dandruff
The most common reason behind the growth of dandruff is dead skin cells on the scalp which turn into flakes, and fungal growth caused due to moisture and humidity. Your kitchen’s most popular ingredient, salt, not only helps in absorbing excess oil, humidity and moisture from the scalp but also enhances easy removal of flakes/dandruff during hair wash. Sprinkle some salt on your scalp and gently massage it. After some time, wash it like you normally wash your hair. You’d be surprised to see the results.
2. Welcome thicker hair
Hair exfoliation is an important regime which we always tend to underestimate. Using chemical ridden serums and hair products makes your hair lose its shine and also makes the scalp quite dry. Exfoliating scalp with a mix of shampoo and salt helps give your hair a quick fix effect. Not only does it make your hair look voluminous but also promotes hair thickening with time. Take as much shampoo as you need and mix it with salt (half of the shampoo’s quantity). Massage gently and let it rest on the hair for some time. Wash your hair with cold water to see a much shinier and thicker looking hair.
3. Promotes hair growth
For those of you, who have been battling hair-fall issues, sea salt is the most natural and cheapest ingredient available to cure your problem. Salt opens up blocked pores on the scalp thus allowing proper hair growth. Try massaging your hair with some oil and salt a couple of times a week and you’d be able to see your hair grow much faster than before.
4. Restricts hair from turning oily
If shampooing your hair every alternate day due to excessive oily hair has become the unsaid norm of your life, the salt will definitely come to your rescue. Oiling the hair is necessary for a healthy hair but excessive oily hair can lead to many unwanted embarrassments. Salt regulates the secretions from sebaceous glands which are responsible for releasing oil into the scalp. Thus improving the quality of your hair.
5. Intensifying blood circulation
Sea salt is another form of salt that intensifies blood circulation in the scalp thus boosting hair growth. The various minerals present in sea salt – calcium, zinc, magnesium, bromide, sulphur and sodium chloride - have many benefits which combine to give your hair a much better texture, volume, shine and strength.
So, here we're! These were the wonderful benefits of adding salt to your hair. So just bang on and add the most important ingredient of your kitchen to your hair, and see the magic!
