How to Naturally Condition Your Hair

If you have tried a more natural routine for washing and conditioning your hair, chances are that you’ve had one of two experiences: 1. your hair gets really greasy or 2. your hair gets dry and brittle.
For the first situation, you basically have to tough out the new natural regimen until your hair completes the detox phase. A lot of today’s hair products are filled with chemicals that strip the hair of all it’s essential oils. To compensate, the hair over-produces oils. Once you go more natural and remove these oil-stripping products from your routine, it takes a while for the hair to catch up and realize that it no longer needs to produce as much oil.
After you pass this stage, you may find that your hair needs a little something extra for conditioning. This isn’t the case with all people, as a more natural routine usually makes hair healthier, fuller, soft and shiny.
I use two different types of conditioning oils in my hair:
1. Coconut oil – This marvelous oil isn’t just for cooking. I also use it to moisturize my entire body, and even my hair. Just a little smoothing through of this oil about once a week makes my hair soft, sleek and shiny.
2. Bhringraj oil - This is a nice oil that smells kind of like sesame oil. Not only does it condition the hair, but it is supposed to also promote faster hair growth and strengthening of the hair. I try to use this one about once a week. I noticed after just a few weeks of trying this that my hair did feel stronger and had less breakage.
