How to Treat My Hair Naturally


Most, if not all, of us want to improve our hair in some way. Maybe your goal is to hydrate and moisturize, repair damage, or protect your strands from the elements. Whatever it is, there’s a way to accomplish that using natural methods. By the end of this article, you’ll have some solid natural techniques and tips you can use to give your hair the best possible care.

Increase Scalp Blood Flow with Scalp Massage

One of the best things you can do for your hair from a natural standpoint is regular scalp massages. Why? Not only does it increase blood flow to your hair follicles, but it is also believed to give you thicker hair over time. The result is well-nourished and functional hair follicles that produce thicker hair.

As for how to do a scalp massage, here’s the general procedure:

  1. Coat your fingertips in a carrier oil of your choice. Coconut oil and olive oil tend to work well. This step is optional and shouldn’t be done multiple times daily.

  2. Press your fingertips into your scalp, using relatively light pressure, and move them around in small circles to massage your hair follicles.

  3. Keep massaging and moving all around your scalp for 5 minutes.

It takes consistency and time to make a change in the state of your hair follicles. Massage your scalp a few times daily for a few months to see results.

Restore Moisture with a Hot Oil Treatment

If you’re having trouble keeping your hair moisturized, it could be that your moisturizers aren’t able to effectively penetrate your hair. It could also be in your hair’s nature– curly and coily hair types are usually the driest.

Whatever the cause, doing a hot oil treatment can be helpful. And it requires absolutely no chemicals. To do a hot oil treatment, follow the below instructions:  

  • Apply some oil to your hair in sections.

  • Cover your hair in a processing cap.

  • Wait for up to a half hour.

  • Rinse or wash the oil out.

The heat will help open up your cuticles so your strands can better accept the nutrients and moisture from your chosen oil.

For the best results, only do hot oil treatments on clean, damp hair. And be sure to leave the treatment on for at least 30 minutes.
