We all resort to branded products to care for our hair. We also eat lots of proteins and greens to maintain proper healthy hair. But more than anything, we like to use natural ingredients that can help us care for our hair in a better way. And very less people know that one such natural ingredient which is very effective for our hair is guava leaves. These leaves have taken claims of it being a miracle solution for hair loss. It even helps in maintaining the shine and volume of the hair.
Here are some benefits that guava leaves can give to your hair:
They're rich in vitamin C that helps in boosting the collagen and helps in hair growth and hair health. It also contains lycopene that protects our hair from the UV rays of the sun. They have antioxidant traits that combat free radicals which averts hair damage. It removes the buildup of dirt and grime and unclogs the follicles.
Here's how you need to use guava leaves for hair growth:
You need to pour one litre of water in a container and bring it to boil. Then, add guava leaves to the boiling water and give it another 20 minutes to boil well. Once this is done, strain the liquid and let it cool. Wash your hair with regular shampoo and this time, avoid conditioning your hair. Once your hair dries up a little, divide them into two sections and apply the solution on your scalp. Make sure you massage it for good 10 minutes. Rinse off the solution with lukewarm water after letting it sit for 2 hours or so. Make sure you don't wash your hair with hot water as it can dry out your hair pretty soon.
