7 ways to make damaged hair look healthier

Limp, fine hair bringing your spirits down? If the answer is yes, it’s time to give these age-old volume boosting techniques a shot.

Use a light oil or shine serum

A serum or light oil such as Jojoba Oil can fake the shine your hair is otherwise lacking. Moreover, most of these serums and oils are packed with nutrients your damaged hair will appreciate and love in the long run.

Toss it in a bun

An up-do is the best trick to give the illusion of thicker hair. Put your hair down and brush your roots from the neck up. Then collect your hair and twist it into a fuller bun. Accessorize with fancy clips to add some bling to your hair do.

Go for a trim

A good trim brings life and bounce back into your hair, making it seem healthier. If you’ve been delaying a trim, now is the time to bid farewell to those split ends!

Tease the roots

Backcombing is an age-old technique to make hair seem fuller and voluminous. Tease your hair around the crown area to make it look big and healthier.

Use a moisturizing shampoo

Damaged hair needs extra care and extra oiling which is why it’s better to switch to a moisturizing shampoo like Dove Intense Repair that gives your hair that extra hit of moisture it’s craving without stripping off the natural oils from root to tip.

Wash with cold water

Cold water seals in the natural oils while hot water strips it away. If you’re someone who enjoys hot showers, end your hot shower with one last cold blast of water to seal cuticles and pores.

Sleep on a silk pillowcase

Cotton pillowcases tug at your hair and absorb all the moisture from your hair in the night, making it weak and brittle. Switch to a silk pillow for a luxurious napping experience and a happier head of hair.

DIYs and Sunsilk

Heat, dandruff, straightening, curling – is there anything that doesn’t lead to hair fall? What if we told you these DIY masks can rescue your luscious locks?

Fenugreek seeds

Fenugreek, a common spice in every Pakistani kitchen, is packed with protein and nicotinic acid. Soak two tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Blend it in the morning with a little bit of water and add 4 tablespoons of yogurt to the mix for a paste-like consistency. Apply this on your hair and scalp, and leave in for half an hour. Wash off thoroughly with Sunsilk Hairfall Solution.

Egg white mask

High protein and Omega 3 content make egg whites a lifesaver for dull, brittle hair. Separate the yolk from the egg white. Mix the egg white thoroughly till you get a thick and even consistency. Apply the egg white to your scalp and hair using a dye brush (this is going to get messy so make sure you change into clothes you don’t mind ruining). Cover your head with a shower cap and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Then, rinse with cool water followed by Sunsilk Hairfall Solution.

Aloe Vera

Known for its cooling and hydrating benefits, Aloe Vera nourishes your hair from root to tip. Wash your hair with Sunsilk Hairfall Solution. Extract the pulp content from the leaf or stalk and rub into your hair. Massage the pulp into the scalp in circular motions. Leave it on for about 15 minutes, and then rinse with cold water.
