Many people tend to take care of other parts of their body while neglecting their hair. The hair on the head is a very important part of the body which should be properly taken care of. Aside from adding extra beauty to the face, the hair on the head also helps to protect the skull and provide warmth for the head.

However, taking care of the hair also requires the use of hair creams, as they help to condition and smoothen the hair. In this article, I will be showing you some natural ingredients you can apply on your hair to improve its appearance and growth.

Consuming oily fish such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, and others tends to provide the body with omega fatty acids which assists to improve the hair from the inside.

You're advised to consume oily fishes regularly or take omega supplements because they're good for the hair.

2. Aloe vera.

Aloe vera is well known for its hair-friendly nature. Applying aloe vera juice on your hair helps to soothe the scalp, which is no doubt very beneficial.

Alternatively, you can use shampoo and conditioners that contain aloe vera.

3. Coconut oil.

This is one of the most popular types of oil. Coconut oil is filled with fatty acids, which helps to reduce protein loss when applied on the hair. Messaging your hair with coconut oil tends to moisturize it, thus improving its growth and appearance.

5. Rosemary oil.

Rosemary oil is very effective for hair growth. According to research, applying rosemary oil on the hair helps to prevent hair follicles from being undernourished due to lack of blood supply. However, you should avoid using them directly on your skin. It's advisable to mix rosemary oil with shampoo or conditioner.
