Indians swear by ‘daadi maa ke gharelu nuskhe’ and we’re sure they’ll make your tresses look like Rapunzel’s! Try out these home remedies to fix dry and dull hair.
Nation Next enlists some of the natural treatments that can give you shiny locks…
→COCONUT OIL MASSAGE
Use of coconut oil is one of the oldest and most reliable oils for hair. A natural moisturiser, coconut oil not only strengthens your locks but also makes your hair look shinier and grow longer in few months with regular usage. The oil should be applied with a cotton ball over the entire scalp. Take a cotton fabric and dip it in warm water and wrap it around the head for about 15 minutes as steam. Wash off the coconut oil with a regular shampoo. Use of conditioner is not a must as the oil does the job!
Dry and damaged hair? Not a problem! Eggs are at your rescue. Eggs comprise proteins, which have the ability to prevent damage and spilt ends. Take an egg and add some coconut oil. Apply it over the scalp and on your split ends. Wrap around a warm-water dipped towel around your hair for the egg mask, to reach the roots of your hair, for good 20 minutes. Rinse off the mask with a regular shampoo and a conditioner using lukewarm water.
