5 Home Remedies For Smooth And Shiny Hair
1. Honey And Olive Oil
Never underestimate the power of homemade masks and packs. They are the real nourishment that our hair needs. The hydrating and moisturising properties of honey will hold the natural moisture, while olive olive will give deep nourishment. All you need to do is take four tablespoons of each in a bowl, mix it well and apply on dry hair. Then leave the mask on for about 15-30 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Try applying this mask twice a week for better results but a word of caution do not overdo it.
2. Egg Mask
One of the most famous and effective ways of bringing your hair back to life. Egg masks are known to be the most effective home remedy for healthy and shiny hair. They are the ultimate source of natural care for all hair types. You can take one whole egg, whisk it well and add some olive oil to it and mix it well. Apply the mask and leave it on for about 30 minutes, allow it to settle in and then rinse it off with water. You can try this twice a week for faster results.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Known for its conditioning properties, apple cider vinegar gives your hair the natural nourishment, makes them smooth and improves the texture. It also helps in preventing itchiness, dandruff or any other scalp infection as it is rich in vitamins like vitamin B and vitamin C. Carry with you regular hair wash routine. Start with shampooing and then apply a mixture of ACV and water to your hair, allow it to settle in for 10-15 minutes and then rinse it off.
4. Yogurt Mask
Yogurt is high in conditioning properties and tends to improve the hair texture by locking the moisture. There are many masks that can be easily made with yogurt. If you want, you can simply apply it raw as well on your hair. But for best results mix a few tablespoons of olive oil with yogurt, mix it well and apply it on dry hair. Let it sit for 15020 mins and then wash off. Another mask can be used by adding aloe vera to yogurt. All you need to do is add 3 tablespoons of aloe vera to an equal amount of yogurt, mix it well and apply it. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and then rinse it.
5. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil tends to generally treat all our hair care woes with its healing properties, but the effect is elevated when we make a hair mask using cinnamon and coconut oil. Take two tablespoons of heated coconut oil in a bowl, then add 1/4 tablespoon of cinnamon to it and mix it well. Start massaging this mixture in your hair, leave it on for 15-20 mins and then wash it off. This mask will not only improve your hair quality but also improve blood circulation in your body.
