Long, voluminous, shiny hair is a dream of every woman and if you can invest little time every day to work towards it, it is not something difficult to achieve.
Below are some of the easy and natural ways you can have long and healthy hair—

- Make time for treating your hair with hair mask
Natural homemade hair masks are perfect for the nourishment of your hair, especially the lower ends as they are the oldest of your entire hair length. You can mix two egg whites with lemon juice, apply it on the length of your hair, leave it for 10 minutes and then wash it with shampoo.

- Don’t forget the scalp therapy
Your hair needs to be stronger from the roots to grow healthy and long, and this means you need to keep your scalp healthy and clean. When oils and dirt get accumulated in your scalp, it weakens your hair roots leading to hair fall. Make sure you gently massage your scalp well during shampoo and treat dandruff if you have them.
