Who doesn’t feel sad to see their precious tresses swirling away in the bathroom? Hair care has become a major concern for all of us these days since stress takes a toll on us and constantly damages our hair. Not only stress, but pollution, chemicals in hair products, hormonal imbalance, and several other factors also cause immense damage to our hair. Battle away these hair woes with easy, simple, natural, and effective hair care hacks. Following are some of the tried-and-tested hair packs to nourish your scalp, which give you guaranteed good results and shining, healthy hair.
- Mayonnaise and Egg
Nope, we aren’t making an egg and mayo sandwich; it’s for your hair. It may seem a little strange to combine these items into a hair mask, but they are a powerful and helpful combo for your hair, especially for those of us with dry hair. Eggs clean your hair and seal in the moisture that comes from the oils in the mayo. These natural oils also help give your hair a beautiful sheen. In addition, eggs give your hair a protein-rich mask, which makes your hair stronger, healthier, and longer. The recipe for this mask is as follows:
Add two raw eggs and five tablespoons of mayonnaise in a bowl. Whisk this mixture to get a well-blended creamy paste. Mixing this blend with hands would be best because whisking it may result in a runny mixture that may not stay on your hair, making the whole mask go for a toss. You can add dashes of olive oil or vinegar to get that extra shine on your hair. Apply this mask from the hair roots to the tips and keep for an hour. Wash with a sulfate-free shampoo.
Pro-Tip: If you have dry, brittle hair with split ends, add a splash of apple cider vinegar to this mask.
- Jonk (Leech) Oil Head Massage
Jonk (leech) oil is the latest addition to the list of super beneficial hair oils. Hair oiling is an age‑old effective method of achieving a gorgeous head full of hair. Oiling with jonk oil gives you even better results. Nature Sure Jonk Oil is just the right fit for your hair oiling routine.
Wondering why? Well, this one hair oil alone can keep dandruff, dryness, hair loss, and fungal infections away from your hair and promote hair growth and hair regrowth along with a nourished and moisturized scalp. The method to apply this oil is as follows:
Take a few drops of Nature Sure Jonk Oil on your palm and apply along the roots of your hair. Massage your hair and leave it in overnight or for two to three hours. Wash off thoroughly with a mild shampoo.
Why does this work? Leech oil contains hirudin, an element that suppresses clotting in the blood and improves blood circulation. Better blood circulation in your hair leads to healthier hair growth and a healthier scalp.
- Coconut Oil with Amla:
Amla or Indian gooseberry is a rich source of vitamin C, which nourishes and improves the texture of your hair and also prevents premature greying. Combining these benefits with a good conditioning hair oil like coconut oil gives the best results for your hair. The recipe to combine these two ingredients is as follows:
Add 50 grams of dried amla to 500 ml of coconut oil in a vessel and boil it. Leave it aside to cool, and the oil is ready to use. You can use it at once or prepare it in bulk to use it as a regular hair oil. Regular oiling of your hair with this oil can also help prevent hair fall. Another way of preparing this oil would be to add 50 grams of dried amla to 500 ml of coconut oil in a glass jar. Close the jar with a tight lid, and leave it in the sun for 15 days.
- Yogurt and Honey
Fats are beneficial for your hair. Nope, we are not talking about the fattening burger or the chocolate milkshake. We are talking about the good fats like yogurt. Natural yogurt is loaded with fats and proteins. The fat conditions your hair and the proteins provide nourishment to your hair.
Ever heard of the word “humectant”? Humectants are products that retain moisture, and honey is the perfect example of a natural humectant. Honey not just softens your hair, it also locks up the moisture in your hair and is full of beneficial vitamins. The recipe for this mask is as follows:
Natural yogurt two tablespoons and a tablespoon of honey are all you need. Mix them well, apply this mask to your hair, and rinse after 15 to 20 minutes. Get long, shiny, soft hair just like that!
Pro-Tip: Use full-fat yogurt for maximum benefit.
Bid adieu to damaged, boring hair and welcome healthy, shiny hair using these natural recipes and tips.
