One of the most important factors in order to get soft hair is choosing the shampoo that's right for your hair type, or even better make your own shampoo. Remember that if, for example, you dye your hair, you need to buy a shampoo that is designed for this type of hair as those for hair that has never been dyed or coloured won't give your hair the same care.

Besides this, you should also take into consideration other factors such as if you tend to have dry or oily hair and even your hair type: if it is straight, curly, wavy and so on. When you go to the supermarket you will notice that there are different shampoos and all of them are destined for a particular hair type, so it is important that you choose correctly and opt for one that suits your needs. Getting soft hair is not the same procedure for curly and straight hair for example. Sp, choosing the correct shampoo is the best home remedy to get soft hair.

Just washing your hair with a good shampoo is not enough to get soft hair. It is also important that you give it the hydration that it needs to look healthy and strong. For this, you should know that you can apply a little conditioner after every wash, so that it ends up much more smooth and silky. However, it is also recommended that you apply, at least once a week, a hair mask that it is especially for restoring the health of your hair, bringing it the hydration it needs and giving it some added softness and lightness.

In supermarkets or speciality shops you can also find a wide range of hair masks that are designed for a specific purpose: to give more brightness, to hydrate in depth, to get soft hair and so on. Choose yours and start your beauty treatment for great-looking hair.

A home remedy for soft hair would be to make your own mask, a homemade avocado hair mask for example.

If you prefer a natural alternative, you should know that there are many foods that you probably have at home that are perfect to moisturise your hair and to give it that softness you also want. Below we will show you the recipe for a honey mask that can give you the following benefits:

  • It deep cleanses your hair
  • It deeply moisturises to nourish the hair fibres
  • It makes your hair soft
  • It gives your hair shine

For shinier hair make this mask and you will see an immediate improvement. First you will need:

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup milk

First slice the banana and put it in a blender, add the honey, oil and milk and process everything until the mixture is smooth and even. When ready, just apply it onto dry hair by massaging in circular motions in order to activate the cuticles and improve blood flow.

Then leave this homemade mask on your hair for about 30 minutes. If you want, you can wrap your hair in a towel or put on a shower cap so that it doesn't drip. After 30 minutes, rinse with lukewarm (never hot) water and apply your usual shampoo. This is an excellent natural remedy that will help you get soft hair.

Besides these masks, it is also recommended to use hair oil if you want to get soft hair with home remedies, a beauty product that manages to improve the appearance of our hair with just one application. It is designed to repair, moisturise and soften our hair making it look perfect and healthier.

Hair oils can be made up of different active agents to help repair hair that is damaged. For this reason, this product is essential if we want to have smooth and hydrated hair because it will help restore the health of our hair and make it look much nicer. The most common way to use hair oil is to apply the oil before washing, this way you can make of the most of its moisturising power.

It's simple to apply: put some drops of the oil on your fingers, rub them together and then apply to you hair starting from the middle of the hair and going down to the ends. When finished, just comb your hair. You'll notice an instant improvement and get softer hair immediately.

Besides all this, in order to get your hair in good condition it is also recommended that you use heat protectors especially if you use hairdryers, straighteners, or if you're going to the beach. Remember that heat can burn the hair and damage it a lot, so if you normally use these kinds of devices it is best to apply some of this product to protect your hair and prevent it from being damaged and to keep it strong, before using them.If you like natural remedies for soft hair, the hair oil we mentioned earlier will do the trick. Amla oil is especially good as a heat protector and will make your hair soft as well.

Another tip for having softer hair is to never wash it with water that's too hot because the heat makes it more likely for it to break or be dry; in addition it is always recommended to rinse with cold water after washing in order to boost blood circulation and stimulate the hair follicles. This way you will get soft hair with home remedies and no effort!

Also, if you regularly dye your hair at OneHowTo we advise that you opt for natural products that will change the colour of your hair and cover greys, and that won't damage the health of your hair. To do this, you should know that there are foods such as, for example, coffee that can dye and darken your hair naturally; on the other hand we have the chamomile plant that is well known for its ability to lighten and is capable of reducing the colour of your hair and making it look pretty. For stronger natural hair dying, we recommend you try katam, henna, indigo, and cassia.

Redheads should dye their hair with products like henna to get the result they want and sage is an ideal plant to reactivate melanin, i.e., the hormone that gives hair colour and in doing so, it is able to hide those first grey hairs.

Now you know there are many natural remedies to get soft hair, try them and let us know how it went!
