Carrots contain a wide range of vitamins (C, K, E, B1, B2, and B6) and minerals (potassium, manganese, molybdenum, and phosphorus). They also contain carotenoids that act as antioxidants. All of these revitalize the hair follicles and make your hair longer and thicker (51). Apart from the topical application, add carrots to your diet in the form of juices or simply eat them raw.

What You Have To Do

  1. Grate one medium size carrot and apply it on the scalp.
  2. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash your hair with shampoo.

How Often You Should Do This

Do this once or twice a week.

Use Baking Soda

Baking soda can remove the excess product and chlorine build-up from your scalp and hair. Such build-up usually clogs your pores and stunts hair growth. Massaging with this versatile powder can also exfoliate your scalp, get rid of the dead skin cells, and improve blood circulation to the scalp. As baking soda is antifungal, it will also treat any fungal infections that may be present.

You Will Need;

1 tablespoon baking soda

• 6 tablespoons water

• A small squeeze bottle

What You Have To Do

  1. Mix the baking soda with water in the bottle and squirt this on the scalp.
  2. Massage your roots and spread the baking soda solution further down your hair length.
  3. Leave it on for 10 minutes. Rinse your hair with tepid water.

How Often You Should Do This

Use the baking soda rinse once in every 10-12 days.

DON’T DRY OFF USING A TOWEL

A towel totally seems like the obvious way to remove excess water and start drying your hair post-shower, but it may not be what’s best. The better option is to squeeze out excess water and then dry off using an old cotton T-shirt, which is gentler than a towel.

Always make sure your hair is treated and clean. Speak to your stylist for expert advice.
