Regardless of the purpose, nettle for hair is taken fresh or dried, this does not affect the effectiveness. Dry can be collected independently or purchased at a pharmacy, in packaging or bags.

  • For convenience, the prepared solution is poured into a spray bottle. Such a spray fits well on the hair and does not stain other dishes.

Recipes have come down to us from ancient times - since people became aware of the beneficial effects of a medicinal plant on the scalp and hair. Among others, the deodorizing and antiseptic properties of nettle for hair are especially appreciated.

They contain much more ascorbic acid than citruses, and more vitamin A than carrots. The plant relieves of anemia, increases defenses, activates metabolism, heals wounds and inflammations. In addition to nutrients, it contains pectin, fiber, antioxidants, hormones, organic acids.

Sharp villi, which cover the leaves and stems, are used to protect against animals that can eat juicy grass. Upon contact with the surface, the villi break off, dig into the skin and inject their juice, which contains formic acid, histamine, organic acids and other components.

  • Nettle for hair brings much more benefits than those unpleasant sensations that are felt when touching the plant.

Juice is obtained by grinding juicy ground parts. Take young herbs, before flowering, and place in a blender. The green mass is squeezed, the resulting liquid is used to treat the scalp - against dandruff, baldness, and hair weakness.

  • You can’t boil chamomile so as not to lose valuable components, in particular, chamazulen.

Together with nettle, useful ingredients enhance the action, complement each other and accelerate a positive result: healing and improving the appearance of curls.

Nettle and lemon for hair

Why do nettle and hair lemon blend so well that Oriflame offered its customers the same name shampoo? The fact is that the active substances that these products are rich in have a very beneficial effect on the hair. And this is due to the composition.

  • Citrus essential oil contains fruit acids with antioxidant and moisturizing properties. Under their influence, the strands become smooth, soft, shiny.
  • Nettle hood cares for hair. It removes excess fat, tones, enriches with minerals.

Shampoo with these properties deeply cleanses the skin and hair, prone to increased fat, helps them stay tidy, smooth and radiant for longer.

  • Nettle for hair and lemon juice makes an excellent home rinse.

It is needed because simple washing makes the hair stiff, dull, naughty - due to the presence of salts, dirt, various impurities remaining on the hair rods and roots. Herbal rinses neutralize these impurities and water hardness, wash away chemicals, and clean every hairline from a matte film. After rinsing, the strands are easy to comb, become light, elastic and soft.

  • In particular, lemon juice restores shine and obedience to hair, eliminates excessive fat content. [5] The ratio of juice to water is 100g per liter.

Nettle rinse strengthens, promotes the density and shine of hair. It is better to apply for dark curls, because light can get unwanted staining. For broth take dry or fresh raw materials, pour boiling water and keep in a water bath. Concentrated liquid must be diluted with a liter of water.

Nettle seeds for hair

If we are talking about nettle for hair, then first of all we mean means that strengthen and heal the braids. For these purposes, use stems, leaves, dry raw materials.

  • But in the arsenal of alternative medicine there are also drugs that use nettle seeds for hair. More precisely, against the hair. Because nettle seeds remove hair.

They contain components that burn hair, and with them the skin. Therefore, this procedure is fraught with inflammation, itching, irritation of the skin. In order to avoid such consequences, such manipulations should be carried out especially carefully.

  • Stinging nettle forms seeds in July - August.

40 g of seeds are taken per serving of the product that removes unwanted hair, triturated and filled with 100 g of sunflower oil. A quality product should be infused for at least 8 weeks (according to other sources - 2 weeks). After filtering, the product is poured into another vessel and stored in the cold. The oil is ready for regular use. The effect occurs when applied twice a day.

  • Another way to get rid of unwanted hair is daily rubbing the problem areas with fresh nettle seeds.

This is effective, but not always convenient in practice, because the procedure requires time and relevant conditions. The plant is also able to prevent the appearance of early gray hair.

As already mentioned, burning out hair roots with nettle concentrate can be dangerous, therefore it is not suitable for people with increased skin sensitivity or in the presence of contraindications to nettles.

Oak bark and nettle for hair

Among the long-standing alternative recipes, the use of oak bark and nettle for hair deserves attention. Oak bark is a well-known therapeutic agent that gives shine, accelerates growth, heals the skin, eliminates excess oily hair.

On the basis of the bark, masks, rinses, balms with tanning and antibacterial properties are prepared. To enhance growth, add dried nettle (1 tablespoon per 40 g of bark).

To prepare the simplest rinse aid, dry raw materials are poured into a glass of hot water, boiled over low heat for 20 minutes, then the filtered liquid is brought to a volume of 1 liter. The finished product is used to wash hair after washing with shampoo.

No matter how effective the herbal remedy is, you should not expect an instant result from it. However, after a month's course, the hair will necessarily become shiny, get a beautiful shade and volume.

Castor oil with nettle for hair

Why is castor oil with nettle for hair considered one of the most effective means? The fact is that alternative means have passed the age-old “trial period”, and if today are forgotten, due to the abundance of industrial cosmetics, then this is undeserved.
