There’s a laundry list of “miracle” products out there claiming to restore damaged hair to its primary condition or turn dry, straw-like hair into silky locks of wonder. Unfortunately, the products you find at stores only help so much before damaging your hair with chemicals.
Herbs and spices are a natural alternative for healthy, striking hair. They don’t break the bank like costly salon products. These seasonings work their magic when sprinkled in your food or applied directly to your hair.
If you desire dreamy locks, put your wallet away and rummage through your cupboard instead! These herbs and spices stimulate hair growth, fight frizz, and add healthy shine. Your beautiful new head of hair should come with a caution sign – tt’s bound to give any passerby whiplash! 😉
Few herbs are quite as powerful when it comes to creating a head of healthy hair as rosemary. This common herb stimulates and improves circulation in the scalp, promoting hair growth, and it relieves symptoms of a dry scalp and prevents dandruff. Not only that, but rosemary can even help to prevent premature graying! It doesn’t get much better than that.
If you long for length, look no further. Burdock contains tannins, insulin, vitamin A, and fatty acids that stimulate hair growth and promote lengthy, flowing locks. Like rosemary, it keeps scalp conditions and itchiness at bay. Mix burdock root tincture with water and apply to your hair, or opt for the plant in its oil form and massage through your scalp.
Don’t underestimate the power of these small seeds! Cumin contains over a hundred nutrients and vitamins, many of which are proven to replenish thirsty strands and give you a healthy mane. Black cumin in particular combats thinning hair and leaves you with shiny locks. For a deep cumin-conditioning treatment, make a creamy solution by mixing cumin seeds with water, straining the seeds, and adding egg yolk or olive oil to the mixture. Massage the concoction into your hair and let it sit for half an hour. You won’t stop running your fingers through what feels like silk!
