Is Your Black Hair Turning Brown?


Is your black hair turning brown? Here are some of the home remedies to keep your locks black and beautiful always. The main cause of your black hair turning brown is because of stress. This health problem is the root cause of your hair changing its natural colour.

When you begin to see your hair turning colours, the first thing you should do is to apply hot oil to the scalp. These regular massages will improve the blood circulation in your hair and strengthen the roots over a period of time. It also depends on what type of oil you use to massage your scalp. Using natural or essential oils is the best to maintain your black hair. The other cause of your black hair turning brown is the exposure of the sun. The sun's UVB and UVA rays are being absorbed by your hair roots and the vitamin D in going inside your scalp and it is sort of tanning your hair. So, the next time you decide to step into the sun, cover your delicate locks with a fancy hat.

Here are some of the hair care tips you can look into if your black hair is turning brown:


Turn To Leave In Conditioner

If your hair is changing colour, you need to pay attention to the product you are using that is causing the problem. If it is your shampoo, coat your hair with a natural leave in post your head bath. It acts as a layer to protect your beautiful black tresses.


Massage With Oil

Massaging your head with oil is one of the perfect ways to looks after your black hair that is turning brown. Oils to be used - coconut oil or almond oil. Massage the scalp of your head from the roots to the tip.

Avoid Chemical Products
