Have you seen all those hair-related TV ads where the lead has sexy, shiny and BOUNCY hair? We all know that their mane is made bouncy using technology.
But you can’t Photoshop or airbrush your hair in real-life. Nor can you use sprays and gel everyday to style them. But the now question is-How to get a crown full of bouncy tresses?
We have an answer- Go natural. We have gone through our grandma’s diary and have unlocked 5 secrets that will give you bouncy hair minus the chemicals.
#1 Avoid brushing wet hair
If you want strong hair inside and bouncy outside, don’t EVER brush them when they are wet. This the most common mistake girls make.
Wet hair are brittle and when you comb your soaking hair, it robs them of their natural shape and bounce. Let them dry naturally and then comb through them. Use a wide-tooth comb to comb your washed hair. Start from the ends and work your way up.
#2 Oil them up
Pollution, dust, sun, and even regular washing play havoc to your locks. All these factors make your hair lose their natural oil. Without oil, your hair becomes dull and lifeless without any bounce.
That’s why you should pamper your hair with oiling. Get your favorite hair oil and give your hair a nice massage. In no time, your hair will be bouncy and shiny.
#3 Trim your hair regularly
Chopping off the split ends is like gifting your hair a fresh breath of air. Split ends hamper hair growth and leave them unhealthy and non-bouncy.
Trimming your locks will not only change your look but also add extra bounce to them.
#4 Watch what you eat
“The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”.
Same goes for your hair. The way to bouncy hair is through YOUR stomach. Healthy and strong hair are the foundation of naturally bouncy hair.
Stay away from oily and fatty food. They make you as well as your hair unfit. Add green vegetables and fresh fruits to your diet. Banana is the wonder food for bouncy hair. Banana is rich in potassium, which is the key supplement for healthy hair growth.
Give your hair a protein boost with foods like yogurt, eggs, honey etc. Protein will make your hair strong and lustrous. Favor nuts like almond and cashew nut as they contain natural oil, which will nourish your hair inside out.
Drink plenty of water every day.
#5 Nourish your hair deeply
Swear by this rule of thumb of bouncy hair – DEEP CONDITIONING.
Deep conditioning is the magic wand that can do wonders to your crowning glory. Deep conditioning treatments make your hair soft, moist and naturally bouncy.
You can blend yourself cost-effective deep conditioners at home. One such easy to make deep conditioner is honey-olive oil conditioner. Mix ¼ cup of honey with a ¼ cup of olive oil in a bowl. The honey will moisturize your hair and olive oil will lock it in.
