Now day’s people have become so conscious of their hair that one can find them foraging through variety of brands that promise to help them fight hair fall, bring back life into their dead hair, or best, give them the nutrition that was provided to hair in the ancient times. To get off the embarrassment of hair thinning, baldness, dandruff, dry scalp, etc. people have gone ahead to take the risk of using measures like chemical and laser treatments that actually have terrible effects on their hair locks.
Do you ever wonder, what was being used back in the ancient times, when none of these shampoos came into existence? We understand how important it is to nourish hair and for the same reason, we are going to share with you two ancient hair care remedies that you’ll never find in any of the big branded shampoos….
1. Multani Mitti
Soak Multani Mitti in water overnight. You can massage your hair well with coconut oil in the night. Next morning, before washing your hair, apply this paste well to your hair. Rinse after 10 minutes. No need for rinsing with shampoo.
2. Banana Coconut Oil pack
Take one banana (two for long hair) and mash it up enough to make a paste; now add 2 teaspoons of coconut oil. Mash and mix piece of camphor (optional, to clean dirty scalp). Apply this pack to your scalp and hair roots. Let it sit for up to 20 minutes; now rinse with any regular shampoo or homemade shikakai.
3. Egg and curd mask
This is one mask that every grandmother would swear by. Beat an egg mixed with 2 teaspoon of curd. Massage your hair root with this pack for 10-15 minutes. Rinse using any normal shampoo. To get rid of the odor, add a teaspoon of lemon juice in your shampoo. Avoid washing your hair with warm or hot water, if the egg is used.
