How to Make Hair Silky Permanently at Home

Ever wonder what it would be like to have smooth, shiny locks like Jennifer Aniston? Yup, same. However, we have made it easy for you and you don’t even need a Hollywood celeb hair stylist to make it happen!

1. Rinse Hair with Cold Water

How to Make Hair Silky Permanently at Home

It sounds brutal to wash your hair with cold water early in the morning but it makes so much of a difference to your hair health. Warmth makes the hair cuticle (the outer layer of each individual hair) open, while cold makes it close up. Rinsing with cold water encourages your individual strands to stay flat. Talking about washing hair, don't overdo it. Washing hair more than twice or 3 times a week can strip your hair of its natural oils thus making it dull and lifeless.

 

2. Dab, don’t rub!

When you step out of the shower, it’s tempting to wrap your hair in a towel and give your head a good rub to remove excess water. Rubbing roughs up your hair and can cause breakage, and it also encourages frizz. Instead, use your towel to blot away on top of your head. Give the longer sections of your hair a gentle squeeze with the towel to get rid of extra water.

Open cuticles result in super tangly hair. The tighter the cuticle, the more it is resistant to opening. The more the cuticle is resistant to opening, the smoother the hair is. Instead of using a rough towel, invest in a soft cotton T-shirt. Wrap the T-shirt around the ends and squeeze it to get rid of all the water out and then work it from the roots to the ends. Blot drying without rubbing your hair prevents breakage and frizz.

 

3. Avoid Brushing Wet Hair

The detangling noise that is created while we brush our wet hair with a brush is nothing but the sound of hair ripping. Instead of smoothening, it creates damage to the cuticle. Due to constant friction, the cuticle wears of slowly, leaving hair frizzy and puffy. Therefore, the best way to detangle your hair is by working through the knots and tangles at the ends before moving to the middle and roots. Working from roots to ends can worsen the problem. Switch your brush with a wide toothed comb to detangle wet hair in order to avoid damaging the cuticle. Always remember: Comb when Wet, Brush when Dry.

 

4. Hot Oil Massage with Coconut/Olive Oil

A hot oil massage can help stimulate your hair follicles, boosting hair growth. It is an efficient deep conditioning treatment for your hair which also fights issues such as dandruff and itching. Coconut oil helps nourish your strands with its rich triglyceride content. It also has the ability to penetrate deep into your hair shafts, allowing for optimum nourishment. Olive oil is packed with antioxidants, fatty acids, and vitamin E, which help condition your hair while preventing and repairing hair damage.

  • Take 2-3 tablespoons (depending on the length of your hair) of your chosen oil and heat it for a couple of seconds until it is slightly warm.
  • Massage the warm oil into your scalp and work it through the length of your hair.
  • Massage your scalp for about 15 minutes and then leave the oil on for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Cover your hair with a hot towel while you wait.
  • Wash your hair with Soundaryah’s Royal Herbal Hair Wash.

 

5. Fenugreek Seeds Hair Repair Mask

Aloe vera is an abundant source of proteolytic enzymes which repair the damaged cells present in your scalp. This allows it to improve follicle health and boost hair growth. The moisture content of this ingredient helps hydrate your hair and keep it conditioned throughout the day. This will ensure a smooth texture with minimized frizz.

  • Slice an aloe vera leaf and extract two tablespoons of gel using a spoon. Ensure that you’re only extracting the clear gel and not the yellow.
  • Blend this gel until it gets to a smooth consistency.
  • Add two tablespoons of water to the gel and mix well.

Yogurt contains vitamins B5 and D which are essential for hair health. It helps strengthen your hair shafts from within while also fighting off issues such as dandruff. The amla in this mask helps give your scalp a vitamin C boost, aiding hair growth.

  • Mix 1 cup yogurt and 2 tablespoon amla powder until you get a smooth mixture.
  • Apply these ingredients onto your scalp and hair.
  • Once your hair is completely covered, leave the mask on for about 30 minutes.
  • Wash your hair with Soundaryah’s Royal Herbal Hair Wash.

9. Onion Juice Hair Rinse

Onion juice helps curb hair fall, boost hair growth, and also re-grow hair. This is probably owed to its high sulfur content which helps boost blood circulation, allowing for better nutrition. It is also a rich source of nutrients such as biotin, manganese, flavonoids, vitamin C, phosphorus, folic acid, and copper, all of which help restore health and shine to your hair.

  • Extract juice from one large onion and add a few drops of lavender essential oil to mask the strong odor.
  • Apply this solution onto your scalp while massaging it gently with your fingertips.
  • Leave the onion juice on for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Wash your hair with Soundaryah’s Royal Herbal Hair Wash.

 

10. Apple Cider Vinegar Treatment

Apple cider vinegar balances hair and scalp pH. By lowering the pH of your scalp, ACV flattens and closes the hair cuticle. This makes your hair smoother and easier to detangle, shinier, less frizzy, less prone to breakage, and more moisturized.

  • In a bowl, dilute 2 cups of Apple Cider Vinegar with 1 cup of Water. Set it aside.
  • Shampoo and condition your hair as usual.
  • Once you’ve conditioned your hair, rinse it with the Apple Cider Vinegar solution.
  • Use a shower cap on your hair to keep the solution contained for 15 minutes and then allow it to dry naturally.

 

Bonus Tips:

  1. Add healthy lipids to your diet in the form of omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fishes and flaxseed oil
  2. Eat iron-rich foods, such as beetroot, dates, beans, lentils, spinach, jaggery (replace sugar with jaggery)
  3. Consume biotin-rich foods, such as eggs, spinach, almonds
  4. Include Vitamin C in your diet by consuming citrus fruits, such as oranges, Indian Gooseberries (Amla), limes.
  5. Get Vitamin D naturally by exposing yourself to the sunlight in the early hours of the morning for a few minutes. Consume foods like egg yolk, mushrooms, and fish.
