Hair hacks – Wash
If you have tried varieties of natural and herbal hair remedies for your hair care like hair oil or hair packs and are yet facing hair breakage or dry hair problem then the problem might be in the water, which you use for your washing.
Many households in the different regions use hard water for daily usage. This hard water can lead to skin damage and hair damage.
The damaging effects of hard water
Hard water is bad for hair and leads to premature graying, roughness, dryness, breakage, dandruff, and so on.
Why hard water is bad for our health?
Our hair pH level is inclined towards the acidic side which helps to prevent it from pollution and environmental damage, but hard water is alkaline which when poured on the hair strands or cuticles disturbs its pH levels, and this leads to hair damage.
Hard water makes soap lather very difficult and leaves a film of soap on the skin. Whereas soft water makes soap lather easily and leaves no soapy residues.
I am going to share with you the best natural water softeners which turn hard water into soft water.
Epsom Salt – Epsom salt softens the water instantly. This is because of the positive charge of the sodium in the Epsom salt which balances the negative charge of magnesium (in both the Epsom salt and water).
Sodium-rich water feels smooth making the bathing experience more comfortable.
Natural remedy for hair hacks
Add 1 or 2 tbsp to a bucketful of water and use it after 10 – 15 minutes to wash your hair.
Amazing hair rinse options which you can use as the last rinse of your hair wash. These rinses are acidic which balances the pH level of hair after using hard water which is alkaline. Pour this rinse starting from the root till the end of the strand.
1-Lemon rinse – Take one big cup of water. Add 1 tbsp of lemon juice and stir it well. You don’t have to add too much lemon juice otherwise water will become extremely acidic. You can make more in quantity depending upon your hair length. Simply pour this lemon water on your scalp as the last rinse of your hair wash. It will prevent the hair from the damage of hard water and will make the hair soft and manageable.
2- Apple cider vinegar rinse- Take one cup of water and add ½ tbsp full of apple cider vinegar. Mix it well and just use it as we did it with the lemon water. Apple cider vinegar has a good amount of acid level which curbs the alkaline damage of hard water.
3- Black tea rinse – In a pan take approximately 2 cups of water. Add 1 tbsp of tea powder to that. Boil it for 5 to 7 minutes on a medium flame. Once the water begins to boil switch off the gas. Leave the black tea to cool for an hour. Strain it and use it. Black tea helps to darken the grey hair.
5 Hair hacks
1-Detangle – Whenever we detangle our hair we notice hair fall. This happens because we detangle our hair giving them jerks. Due to this, our hair falls either from the roots or breaks from the middle.
To stop this – Take two to three drops of hair oil. Apply on the comb. Start detangling your hair from hair to tip. Divide your hair into small sections and detangle them slowly.
2-Hair oil – To make our hair long and strong fast for this we need to consume healthy protein-rich food. For growing our hair fast we need hair oil that contains amla. As amla contains antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids which help to promote hair growth.
3- Hair wash – Whenever we shampoo our hair we need to properly clean out hair. Flip your hair upside down while hair washing. Slightly massage your scalp so that all the dirt loosens from the scalp and is removed easily with water.
4- Frizzy hair – If you have frizzy hair then rub 9 to 10 drops of hair oil on your wet hair. This keeps the hair manageable.
5- Comb care – If you are detangling the dirty hair with a comb and using the same comb to detangle the clean hair then what is the benefit of cleaning hair. Regularly clean your combs.
10 Hair hacks for growth
1-Combs and hair brushes- Many people have only combs or only hair brushes. If you want to take care of your hair and don’t want to do more effort so you must have these three things-
A-Hair brush – A hairbrush does not only sort your hair but also gives a fantastic massage to the scalp so that circulation of blood automatically comes there. A hundred strokes in the morning and hundred strokes in the evening can enhance the density.
B-Tooth comb – When your hair is wet or semi-dry, you can detangle your hair with this broad tooth comb. People who have very dry hair and are badly tangled should use this comb.
C-Normal comb- After using a brush comb or broad tooth comb tie hair with this comb and do whatever style you want to make.
2- Good hair ties- If you have the habit of forgetting your hair ties anywhere then take 2 hair ties which are of good quality (whether it is of satin or cloth) do invest on them surely because the rubber band which is used takes away two or three hairs from your head every time you take them off.
3- Rice and fenugreek – Mix in a jar an equal amount of rice and fenugreek seeds. Whenever you have time for one day take out a handful of the mixture and keep it soaking in 2 glasses of water overnight. The next day morning take out the water and do the hair rinse with that water.

4-Spray bottle- Invest in a good spray bottle. You can soak rice and fenugreek seeds in this bottle and spray it. You can spray water with oil.
Spray bottles are very convenient to use and you don’t need to feel that irritation while applying oil and that stickiness. Pour the ingredients into the bottle and spray it. It is completely hassle-free. You can also make toners and keep them in this bottle.
5-Hair oil– There is a lot of confusion about which oil should be used. Coconut, almond, or mustard oil are all-encompassing oils in themselves. If you can mix all three and take them in a bottle it’s better. Otherwise, these three powerful oils can be stored individually in separate bottles.
Use these oils thoughtfully. Mustard oil is the thickest and is very nutritive. Almond oil gives nourishment and shine and also sharpens the brain and coconut oil contains multiple nutritive values that are available in mother’s milk. You can make use of any of these oils or mix them and use it.
6- Seed mix- Mix all categories of seed and mix them together in a jar. Consume one spoon every single day. Sometimes there is a lack of nutrition due to which the locks are damaged. These seeds will not allow any kind of deficiency, dandruff, itchiness, and hair fall to happen.
7- Hair towel – Carry one hand towel which is only for your hair. Do not use this towel for anything else and gradually you will see your hair is starting to revert.
Not only the towel, do not allow anyone to use your pillow cover. Change or flip the pillow cover which you are using after two days of usage. Don’t let anything dirty get on your hair repeatedly. Try to give steam to your hair once a week by dipping your hair towel into hot water, after oiling your hair.
8- Good shampoo – If the shampoo and cleanser are good then you can prevent many problems. Please make a list of clarifying shampoos and take their sachets (do not invest in bottles directly) and try it out.
Within one or two applications you will understand is your hair is reverting from bad to good or not. If it is working then invest in the good shampoo for a longer duration of time. Many problems will subside.
