So when a while back I sort of started noticing more and more hair on my brush, I started to panic. Now, my hair is fragile, and does not like chemicals, pollution, length, and dirt. It becomes frizzy if I do not wash it well, gains dandruff if I do not keep my head clean and moisturized, and hates all sort of coloring, including henna.
I started to, thus, think, why my hair was falling so hard. Before you guys start talking more, here is my routine for hair care. It is all I can do with a busy schedule.
I have naturally curly hair, very fine, but have a lot of volume. Generally I wash my hair three times a week, because any more and my hair starts falling off. Any less, and my hair falls off as well. So it happens every other day. I wash it with whatever works for me at that point (right now it is Dove), and then condition it. I apply castor oil once a week and wash my hair 4-5 hours after application. Also, I apply almond oil once a week, and keep it overnight. Apart from this, after hair wash, I like using a hair masque once a week, and also a serum (mostly it is L’Oreal Professional Absolute Repair). I do not blow dry my hair.
Now, here are a few things I discovered. As soon as my hair started to reach halfway down my back, it started to break off, and hair fall became huge. I panicked, and decided to contact someone who could help. However, my schedule was tight, and soon I discovered over 130-140 hair falling on an average day, when previously it was only about 30-40. I changed shampoo, added more oil (sadly that led to hair going limp and more hair fall). And then I decided to go for the long haul and used homemade egg masques, curd masques and god knows how many other masques I could find. They made my hair smell nasty, and the hair fall actually went up.
Needless to say, none of them worked. I used amla powder, all sort of herbal remedies I learned, and NONE of them worked.
Now then, I finally went to my doctor. And she told me to do two things that worked for me.
Guess what they were?
- Eat Green Vegetables. Well, yes, I have been avoiding eating green veg for a while, but SERIOUSLY!?!?!
- Drink plenty of water. I am now drinking nearly 5 liters of water a day.
Besides this, she asked me to give the ends of my hair a trim, and then make loose pony tails out of them whenever possible. She also asked me to not braid my hair too tightly or pull back my hair too tightly.
So, now, I again have nice, long, curly hair. And yes, it is so soft and manageable because I am using this hair mask which has made my hair soft and strong. And it is a 3-ingredient mask which works wonders on my hair. I have to use it once every week.
- 3 tbsp. honey
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- Apply it 10 minutes before washing your hair. Wash off with mild shampoo and follow with a conditioner.
