1. Relax your scalp

Today, we all suffer from a lot of tension in all parts of the body. One of these areas is our scalp.

That tension impedes blood flow in the hair roots, which can cause hair loss, weakness, grey hairs, excess grease and dandruff, etc.

The first step to fight against these tensions consists of massaging your scalp every day. It should not be a superficial massage, but a bit more intense in order to move and relax the surface.

This is a very relaxing activity, perfect to do for 5 or 10 minutes every night before going to bed.

2. Stimulating with mint and cinnamon.

When massaging your scalp, you can strengthen the effects using a natural product which helps stimulate blood flow. You can find a very simple option in two essential oils with stimulating properties: mint and cinnamon.

Both oils boost circulation but with an opposite effect. The mint cools, while the cinnamon gives heat. Combining them provides a very beneficial hot-and-cold effect.

You should always use this in small amounts, with a hydrating base:

  • 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel or extra virgin coconut oil
  • 5 drops of essential oil of mint
  • 5 drops of essential oil of cinnamon

3. Choose natural products

If you want to take care of your body, you should always choose products that are as natural as possible for health and beauty use.

In the case of hair, you should avoid products that contain preservatives (parabens) and very strong sulfates, such as sodium sulfate.

You can find natural or organic products in herb and health food stores.

4. Brush your hair every day

It seems very obvious, but brushing your hair is a way to improve circulation in your scalp and to spread out oils to obtain more shiny and balanced hair.

You should use quality combs made of natural materials, like wood with natural bristles made from vegetable origin.

You should comb your hair in all directions every day.

5. Eat a balanced diet

It’s essential to eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals, protein, and fatty acids in order to provide the nutrients that our hair needs.

Our diets needs to include the following:

  • Dried fruit, nuts and seeds
  • Raw fruits and vegetables
  • Legumes
  • Fish oil
  • Eggs
  • Brewer’s yeast
  • Sea salt
  • Clarified butter
