  8. Hello every one! I have not tried any of the remedies that are mentioned in this article. But then I tried another remedy and it really worked on my hair. It helped in increasing the growth of my hair to a greater extent. Now I have also started using it very often on my hair for at least twice in a week. My hair also looks very healthy and fresh all the time after using them. For this you will be requiring the following ingredients
    • 2 tbsp of amla oil
    • 2 tbsp of coconut oil
    • 2 tbsp of castor oil
    Take a small saucepan or a bowl and add all the three oils that are mentioned above one by one. Start heating the pan until it reaches a warm temperature. Then remove the pan from the heat and check whether the temperature of the oil is fine or not. Then start to apply it on your hair all over the strands of your hair. Also apply it on your scalp and give a gentle massage to your hair and scalp. Then leave the oil to be there on your hair for about 15 to 20 minutes. Then use a mild shampoo and wash your air and scalp. Follow this regularly and you hair will start growing well in a very few days after starting to use the hot oil massage remedy.

  9. I am a 35 year old woman and I have a lot of Grey hair. I tried using many of the hair products but then except the hair dye nothing gave me quick and effective results. And that too the results that the hair dye gave was only lasting for a very duration of time. Will I be able to turn my hair naturally black? Will the hot oil massage help me to turn those Grey hair into black? Or is there any other remedy that could help me with this issue?

  10. My mother was also having the same issue. Then she followed a remedy and it really helped in turning all her Grey hair into black color. The steps she followed were very simple and you could easily try them at your homes. For this you will be requiring a few fresh curry leaves and one tbsp of extra virgin coconut oil. Pour one tbsp of coconut oil into a small saucepan or a small bowl. Then add a few fresh curry leaves into the coconut oil and start to boil them. Once the oil starts to boil very well, you will notice a change in the color of the oil. The oil will turn light greenish due to the curry leaves that are present in the oil. Once the oil gets boiled well, remove the pan or bowl from the heat. Then allow it to get cool down for some time. Once it reaches a warm temperature you can start to apply it all over your hair and scalp. After applying you can let the oil to stay on your hair and scalp for about 20 to 25 minutes. Then you can start to wash your hair with a mild shampoo. And then you can store the remaining oil in a clean container and use it further whenever you plan to take hair wash. This also made my mother’s hair grow healthier and strong. Now she is using this oil every time she takes head bath. And she uses this for at least once in a week. Now most of the Grey hair on her head has got turned black naturally. You can really try this on your hair and I assure that you will get effective results.

  11. You can also try applying henna paste on your hair. This will make your hair turn brownish or slight reddish in color. This will not cause any side effects on your hair as it contains only natural ingredients. You can prepare the henna paste by grinding a few henna leaves by yourself. And apply the henna paste on your hair and you will obviously notice the changes after using it for the first time itself. You will really be happy with the results it offered you. And also this is a very quick way to make those Grey hair to get diminished from your head. Th other most important thing is that it can also nourish your hair and scalp with the essential nutrients that are present in the henna leaves.

  12. Hey guys! I am 24 year old woman and I have a short hair. I have added red highlights on my hair. It’s been about 3 month since I have added them to my hair. Initially, I was using the hair care products which were given in the salon. But then once it got covered, I started using the normal shampoos and the conditioners on my hair. Since the products that were referred by the salon professionals were costly I did not buy them further. But then due to the usage of the normal products, now the red highlight in my hair has got faded completely. And also, my hair looks more damaged and dull now. Now the highlight in my hair looks too odd and spoils the overall appearance of my hair. Now I struggle everyday to style my hair and keep them in proper positions. And my hair has also become too frizzy and extremely hair. What should I do now to treat the color damaged hair? Please suggest me a way to recover from this hair problem. Also tell me how to retain back my natural hair.

  13. Hi MAYUMI YOGI! I have been working at salon for more than 5 years till now and I am a professional in adding highlights for hair. You don’t have to worry a lot on your color damaged hair anymore. You can still bring your hair back to the normal and healthy state by following certain tips.
    • Always make sure that you trim your hair every once in a month to avoid the occurrence of the split ends. This can also spoil your hair to a greater extent.
    • You can very well sue the hot oil massage to reduce all the damages in your hair that happened in color and structure of your hair. The natural oils will make your hair become very healthy and bright.
    • They will work effectively in retaining the old appearance and health of your hair.
    • The first thing I would opt for is to take up a keratin treatment on your hair. Proteins are the basic ones that are needed for all hair. Protein can help in offering a definite structure and color to your color damaged hair. This can make your hair look much better and healthy by removing all the damages.
    • You can start preparing some natural home remedies or hair masks on your hair and scalp.
    • Choose your shampoo wisely that would suit your hair. Do not use the shampoos that contain sulfur, sulfate or chlorine. These can easily rip the color from your hair ad make it unhealthy and dull. Avoid visiting swimming pools very often after coloring your hair and also make sure that you cover your hair if while swimming.
    • Try to use products that could help in sealing the damaged bonds in your hair.

  14. Thanks a lot ANKA MURA for your suggestions and tips. I will surely follow them in treating my color damaged hair. Also thanks for such a quick response.

  15. Oh yeah! You can really follow the henna paste to get rid of all those Grey hairs from your head. It really works like a magic when applied on your hair. I have started using them regularly. And when I apply the henna paste, the color lasts for more than for about two weeks on my hair. And since the color is naturally obtained it does not affect the health and structure of my hair. And more than offering natural color, it also helps in strengthening the hair follicles by making it strong. My hair doe not face any breakage issues after starting to use the henna paste. And it also offers a cooling effect on my scalp and hair after applying it. I use it monthly once and this is more than enough to make all the Grey hairs get vanished from my head. Thanks a lot RITY JAIN for mentioning this over here.
