TURMERIC AND YOUR HAIR
Your scalp is the literal foundation of your hair, and turmeric, being both gentle and stimulating, is your first line of protection. It can guard against itchy, flaky skin and inflammation, and be your best-kept-secret in the quest for stimulated hair growth resulting in thick, strong hair.
TURMERIC IS BRILLIANT FOR YOUR HAIR GROWTH
WHY: It is a fantastic exfoliating cleanser for the hair and scalp. The anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties are vital for treating many hair related issues.
HOW: Make your own hair mask by creating a paste with equal parts turmeric powder and water. Add enough skin-soothing aloe vera gel to thicken the paste.
TO MAKE PASTE: simply mix ingredients until it is the consistency of toothpaste. Get it to that consistency by adding more water or a touch of turmeric powder until it is perfect.
TO USE ON HAIR: Apply this to your scalp and massage into the hair gently, firmly, and with enough pressure to feel a bit of heat. Leave it for 15-30 minutes before washing with a gentle, natural shampoo. Do this twice weekly if possible.
TURMERIC IS INCREDIBLE FOR COMBATING HAIR LOSS:
WHY? Turmeric can be highly effective in helping to combat dermatitis and eczema on the scalp. It invigorates the scalp while being wonderfully gentle on the skin, increasing circulation and providing nutrition to the hair follicles.
HOW? Take the turmeric paste recipe above, replacing the aloe vera with enough milk to keep it pasty, and adding a tablespoon of honey.
TURMERIC IS EXCELLENT FOR TREATING DANDRUFF AND DRY SCALP ISSUES
WHY: Turmeric has amazing anti-bacterial properties which can clear up the scalp so that dandruff does not accumulate. The fact that it stimulates blood circulation also helps by preventing dead skin cells from forming in the first place.
HOW: Create a little cup of the paste we talk about, above, but now replacing the milk and honey with olive oil.
