How Does Guava Benefit Your Hair?
More than the fruit itself, it is the leaves of the guava tree that provide many benefits to your hair.
One of the reasons guava is so good for your hair is its richness in Vitamin B. When you get adequate amounts of this vitamin in your diet, you make sure that the health of your hair is boosted.
Guava is rich in Vitamin B that makes it highly beneficial for the growth and maintenance of healthy hair. Vitamin B3, B5, and B6 make your skin look radiant, and Vitamin B2 helps in the repair of cells and tissues. It is due to these nutrients that guava is included in many skin and hair care products.
According to experts, these leaves can prevent hair fall when regularly used as a part of your hair care regimen.
To gain the benefits, boil a handful of guava leaves in 1 liter of water for 15 to 20 minutes. Once boiled, let it cool down to room temperature. Strain the water and then gently apply it on your hair from the root to the tip. Concentrate on your scalp and the roots of your hair.
Using the water of boiled guava leaves is known to help immensely in controlling hair fall. When you massage your scalp regularly with this solution, the roots of your hair are strengthened, which in turn means less hair fall. It not only strengthens the roots, but also the follicles, giving you thick and shiny hair.
As you can see, guava leaves are a great way to treat hair fall naturally. It is a fact that many hair care products on the market that promise to control and prevent hair fall do not work at all. Plus, they are more often than not filled with chemicals that cause more damage to your hair. By using an all-natural treatment like guava leaves, you make sure that these harmful substances do not touch your hair; you only give it the goodness that nature has to offer.
