OVERNIGHT HAIR SPRAY

Here are 4 DIY overnight hair sprays to stop hair fall and regrow thinning hair:

1. Rosemary Leaves Spray:

Rosemary hair spray can help improve blood circulation in the scalp and can stimulate hair follicle growth from within, so the hair grows out stronger and healthier. Rosemary is known to have ‘carnosic acid’, which is an active ingredient present in plants that is known to help heal damaged nerve endings and could possibly stimulate rejuvenation of hair follicles, in turn restoring hair growth. The anti-inflammatory properties in rosemary can help prevent and treat scalp conditions and reduce hair fall.

How to make:

Ingredients:

4 stalks of rosemary

2 cups water

Method:

Into a heating pot, add in the water and rosemary leaves and let it come to a boil. Then, lower the flame and cover the pot with a lid and let it simmer for 5 to 6 minutes. Turn off the flame, take off the lid and let this mixture sit for around an hour or two. You’ll see that the colour of the water has turned reddish brown. Then, strain this into a spray bottle, add in ⅛ cup of water, shake it well and it is then ready to use.

2. Amla Hair Spray:

Using amla hair spray can help treat and prevent hair fall very effectively. This is because amla contains high levels of vitamin C, which can help the body create collagen, a protein that plays an important role in building hair structure. It can also help the body absorb iron that can promote better hair growth. It can also enhance and promote better blood circulation in the scalp in turn, stimulating the hair follicles to increase hair growth. It can also help inhibit premature greying of hair.

How to make:

Ingredients:

¼ cup amla juice

⅛ cup of water

1 tbsp coconut oil

Method:

Into a spray bottle, add in the amla juice, water and coconut oil. Shake this well and it is ready to use.

3. Black Seeds Hair Spray:

Black seeds or Kalonji seeds contain a phytochemical compound called ‘thymoquinone’ that contains proteins, alkaloids and saponins that can help boost hair growth and slow down the aging process of cells and can thereby prevent hair thinning. Thymoquinone has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce hair fall which is caused due to inflammation of hair follicles. It can also help in the regulation of imbalance in the hair growth cycle.

How to make:

Ingredients:

2 tbsp black seeds (kalonji seeds)

2 cups water

Method:

Into a heating pot, add in the water and black seeds (kalonji seeds) and let it come to a boil. Then, turn down the flame and let it simmer with a lid on, for around 4 to 5 minutes. Turn off the flame, remove the lid and let this mixture cool. Pour into a spray bottle and it is then ready to use.

4. Aloe Hair Spray:

Aloe vera hair spray can help promote hair growth as it helps cleanse and nourish the scalp and can help reduce hair breakage and stimulate the hair follicles to promote hair growth. It can also promote the hair shine and give your hair a natural glow. It can also protect the hair from ultra-violet (UV) damage and retain the natural hair colour. Aloe vera is rich in vitamins and can contribute to cell turnover (a natural process that involves the constant shedding of dead skin cells and the replacement of it with younger skin cells, over a period of time) and promote healthy cell growth in turn promoting hair growth.

How to make:

Ingredients:

2 tbsp fresh aloe vera gel

½ cup water

1 tbsp castor oil

Method:

Into a mixer grinder, add in the fresh aloe vera gel and blend into a smooth liquidy paste, then add in the water and give it a quick blend. Then pour this mixture into a spray bottle, add in the castor oil, shake it well and it is then ready to use.

How to use these hairs sprays:

Just before you go to bed at night, spray the hair spray all over your scalp and hair evenly (do not overdo or make the hair wet, it should just be moist and coated). Leave it on overnight and rinse off the next morning with a mild shampoo and conditioner.

Tip: Remember to shake the bottle well before every use, as the sprays containing oil, will make the oil rise to the top because it is light.

Caution: Doing a patch test is advisable, especially if you have sensitive skin. If any irritation is caused, rinse off immediately with plain water and discontinue its usage with immediate effect.
