Show of hands if you are suffering from hair fall or hair breakage? Unless the hair gods have divinely blessed you. Did you know that we lose about 100 strands every day? Climate change, diet, stress, and repeated hair styling tools can leave us far away from a "great hair day." And let's be honest, there is nothing cute about dry, weak strands that break and flake off easy. But you want to know what the good news is? You don't have to live with it!

Nowadays, most of us are spending a lot of time at home, so, now is when we have the option, or let me say, the luxury, to put a luscious hair mask on, in our pj's, while attending a zoom meeting; call it a sheer blessing? And are we seeing a tad bit of change, ladies? We aren't straightening, blow-drying, or curling our hair as often as we did a year ago. And our hair thanks us for it! But there are a few more things we can be doing to stop hair fall and encourage hair growth. Let's utilize this time wisely and show our hair some love.

Here are five tips that not only curb hair fall caused by breakage but also help with accelerating hair growth simultaneously.

1. Experiment with these famous Home Remedies

Going back to the luscious hair mask, one of the trusted home remedies that speed hair growth is a mixture of egg whites, aloe vera, and honey. Leave this mixture on for about 20 minutes before shampooing, and you are done. This gospel recipe promotes hair growth, hair strengthening and is an excellent treatment for hair breakage. The egg whites have protein binding properties that strengthen each strand paired with aloe and honey that are natural healers and nourish the hair from root to tip.

Another very well-known natural remedy is rice water. Even though there are no scientific studies that prove the effectiveness of this ingredient, women in Asia have been using this recipe for centuries. Rice water is believed to help with hair growth and improve its strength and shine. All you need to do is take half a cup of uncooked rice, rinse it, place it in a bowl with 2–3 cups of water and leave it to soak for about 30 minutes. Later, strain the rice water into a clean container and use it on your hair after your shampoo, leave it on for up to 20 minutes and rinse it off.

2. Add the right supplements to your diet

But, to truly amplify your hair's overall health you’ll need to revise your eating. Our diet is primarily the fastest route for our hair to look shiny, glossy, and packed with luster. Eating a balanced diet is something we've heard right from our 5th-grade biology class. But who strictly implements it? Supplements come to play in making our lives a bit easier. Include Omega, Protein, and Biotin supplements in your diet* and see it for yourself; this helps generate hair growth and indirectly helps with your skin and nails too!

*Please consult with a doctor to understand the right dose of supplements for you

3. Test the well-known properties of hair oils

There is nothing that a natural hair oil can't fix. We all know their magical properties! Essential oils are believed to improve hair health and help it with growing, strengthening and shining. A few that experts recommend are: Lavender, peppermint, rosemary and lemongrass.

Now, using hair oils and understanding which one works for you can be a real task. Luckily, Pantene believes that the modern woman deserves modern solutions to their hair problems! Check out their Oil Replacement line for a hassle-free solution.

4. Be more mindful of your hair habits

There are a few things you can try to avoid or be a bit more mindful of; it's mostly been told to us by our moms. Brush your hair regularly and avoid tight ponytails (unless it's for a one-off occasion). Another effective tip? Invest in a silk pillowcase! Now you must be wondering what does that have to do with my hair? Well, cotton pillowcases usually are known to drain out the moisture from our hair and skin, whereas silk helps to tame the frizz and retain the moisture. Wave goodbye to bedhead and weird pillow creases on your skin with the help of a silk pillowcase, a real lifesaver!

5. Incorporate new products into your routine

We could be doing practically everything under the sun and still ruin our hair with the choice of products we use to clean our hair. Pantene’s three most essential hair products that help you stay far away from hair loss and hair breakage are: Hair Primer, Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo and their Anti-Hair Fall 3 Minute Miracle. Pantene’s Hair Primer ensures a smooth detangling experience in the shower before shampooing to minimize breakage and hair fall due to breakage in the shower.
Pantene’s Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo gently cleanses and makes hair stronger against breakage due to any styling damage. Pair the two and notice significantly less hair fall after each wash! Finally, Pantene’s Anti Hair Fall Mask is a perfect treatment for hair that suffers from excess splitting and breaking. The expertly formulated conditioner renews each strand resulting in healthy and shinier hair.
