Hi, I’m Sneha Daftary, your hair expert and I’ll help you get your hair fall under control to make your hair strong, healthy and beautiful again. Let’s get started with
The 4 Easy Steps to Control Hair Fall
A lot of us have a habit of simply coating layers and layers of oil without really massaging it well. This has some serious drawbacks. No Results , Double the shampoo, Dry hair, and worst of all, HAIR FALL!
Always remember, it’s your scalp that needs the oil not your dead ends. I’m using this Anti-Hair Fall Hair Oil from Himalaya that’s enriched with Bhringaraj and Amla that help promote hair growth and strengthen your hair from root to tip. Start with a small amount of oil on a cotton pad and gently dab it into your scalp. Do the dabbing until you’ve covered your entire scalp and just briskly run your hands through your hair with a coin size amount.
When your scalp is tight, the blood circulation is restricted and that pretty much explains the cause of slow hair growth. You’ve just got to get your scalp moving and loosen it up with the help of your finger tips, NOT fingernails! Starting from your temples, gently massage your scalp all the way to the back.
Once you’re done with a mini massage session, wrap a hot towel around your hair and leave it for 30 minutes to an hour, which is just enough time for any oil to work its magic.
When choosing a shampoo for hair fall, go for milder and herbal products that are way more gentle on the scalp and ends.
My current favourite shampoo is the Himalaya Anti Hair Fall Shampoo as it is specifically meant to deal with hair fall. The trick to shampooing the right way, is to lather the product on your hands and then work it in your hair in a downward motion from scalp to ends.
I shampoo my hair without using any water. Since water and oil do not get along at all, it does the same job with half the effort, product and water plus no over drying and no hair fall. You can go in for another round of normal shampooing if there’s a need.
Post shampooing, I’m just going to apply some of Himalaya’s Anti Hair Fall Conditioner to shut the hair cuticles. This is formulated with Bhringraja and Chickpea that nourishes the hair, helps prevent excess hair fall and leaves your hair soft, silky and smooth. Apply it from the mid-section of your hair to the tips, using your fingers. Make sure you stay away from the scalp while conditioning as you don’t want excess product build up on a sensitive hair fall prone scalp.
Many people experience hair fall especially when their hair is wet! The trick to control this is by ending your routine with a good, healthy leave in cream. Leave in creams tackle frizz and add shine & texture. I use the Himalaya Anti Hair Fall Cream which contains Bhringraja and Amla that help promote hair growth. So, here’s what you need to do:
- Post your hair wash, towel dry your hair.
- Take a small amount of the cream depending on your hair length
- and run it through the lengths of your hair strands.
It naturally dries up without making your hair look greasy. If you don’t prefer oiling OR have colored hair, then you can skip that step altogether and massage your scalp with this cream instead, and leave it on for 30 minutes before washing it off.
There you go! Your at-home haircare routine “For Fabulous Hair”.
Try this at least for the next 6 months if you want to see the best results. Apart from these external habits, also test out if there any hormonal issues that are leading to excess hair fall! Hope you found this video helpful and until next time, Stay Tuned, Stay with us
