How does Aloe Vera affect hair and hibiscus?

What are the properties of hibiscus and its effect on hair. What is the cause of dandruff?

Hibiscus itself is a good remedy to darken the hair, helping to reduce the negative effect of the sun on hair by moisturizing it and soothing and cooling the scalp. When you apply hibiscus oil to your hair, you may prevent premature graying of hair as well as promote growth and strength of hair, reducing hair loss. Vitamin C, riboflavin, and calcium in hibiscus leaves are even preventing dandruff!

Instead of a common conditioner and shampoo, you can apply hibiscus as a conditioner to your hair. Thoroughly grind the leaves and add olive oil to add thickness to the mixture. Apply it to your hair and wrap your head in a towel for 10-20 minutes before you wash the homemade remedy off.

Dandruff may be caused by dryness of the scalp. Hibiscus moisturizes it. Some common shampoo ingredients may cause skin irritation and dandruff for people who are sensitive to the specific ingredients, which can be avoided if you use just hibiscus oil. Other causes include:

  • not washing hair regularly;
  • washing hair too often;
  • using too many hair products;
  • a fungus malassezia;
  • medical skin conditions (psoriasis, eczema);
  • oily skin.

How to improve thin and weak hair?

My hair has become thin after my illness, also lost shine and breaks very easily. There is a lot of hair loss in the region where I use to part my hair. I have tried: Coconut oil and olive oil mixture.. I think it was caused by: Nutrition as I stay in hostel, stress, sometimes late night awake, illness primarily (typhoid, jaundice).

Bhringraj has been studied extensively for hair growth. Using more of that on areas of your scalp where you'd like hair to be will help it grow there. As for weak and damaged hair, there are many off-the-shelf shampoo options that can strengthen your hair. Use these in tandem with the Bhringraj that you've been using and you should see marked improvements shortly.

If you don't want to use any of those shampoos, talk to a dermatologist about alternative shampoos, including prescription shampoos that may expedite the hair growth process.
