Beautiful lustrous healthy hair is a crucial asset not only for women but for men as well.
Our markets are full of a range of products that claim to transform your dull frizzy hair to super glossy and shiny tresses. No doubt these chemical based products transform your hair in a jiffy but with their regular use we end up damaging our hair and which later results in hair loss.
After all the damage done due to pollution and harmful chemicals we later turn towards Ayurveda and nature to recuperate the injured hair.
1) Fuller earth powder (Multani Mitti) hair pack :
Multani mitti helps to get rid of split ends, soothes scalp, treats dandruff and absorbs excess oil from the scalp and with continue use, one can get long, silky straight hair.
To make the magic hair pack you will need
4-5 tbsp. full of Multani mitti.
3-4 tbsp. curd (unflavoured)
Take all the above ingredients in a bowl and make a fine paste and a little water if the mixture is too thick to apply (the mixture should not be too thick or too runny). Apply the pack from root to tip, wear a shower cap or cover with polybag and leave it on for 30-60mins. Wash with mild shampoo.
Use twice weekly to get straight silky hair.
2) Aloe Vera hair mask
Almost every home has an aloe Vera plant. Aloevera is used in many cosmetics, lotions, ointments etc. It is easily available, but if you do not have it at home you can get a ready-made gel easily available in cosmetic or medical stores but make sure you check the ingredients before you make the purchase. Usually products with 90-99% aloe Vera gel are preferred.
Aleovera is a natural conditioner and along with healing and soothing your scalp, it gives your hair a beautiful shine, silkiness and makes hair frizz free and easy to manage.
With continuous use, this pack will give you the type of hair you will get addicted to touch over and over again. The effects will show from the first use.
