Follow these simple DIY remedies at home for a natural bounce and shine in your tresses.
Amla (Indian Gooseberry)
Amla, a Vitamin C rich fruit, is commonly eaten to purify blood, improve digestion and even loose weight. The high levels of Vitamin C make it ideal for nourishing your locks from within.
Take powdered or dried amla and make a homogenous paste in warm water. Use it to cover your scalp evenly and wash off after 20 minutes. Not only does this keep your hair healthy but also makes it dense and black.
A widely used and famous household name, which is definitely sitting in your kitchen right now, methi too has amazing qualities to boost hair growth.
Depending on your hair length, grind the appropriate amount of slightly roasted methi and make a paste of it in warm water. Apply it evenly over your scalp, keep it on for 20 minutes and rinse off.
This known skin foster is also a source of nutrients to give your hair a chemical-free shine and bounce. The plant extracts clean, protect and prevent your tresses against external impurities.
Mix aloe vera latex from the plant and some water in a bowl. Transfer this mix into a spray bottle and add your choice of essential oil (coconut and almond give best results) and shake well. Simply spray this light leave-in mix on to your hair for unbelievable manageable hair.
Bhringraj (False Daisy)
Also known as the ‘king of herbs’, Bhringraj owes this title to its excellent hair growth-boosting qualities. A regular dose of this herb can result in beautiful long hair.
Make a paste of the leaves and apply it on your scalp for some time before washing it off. Alternatively, you can use dried Bhringraj as well. Mix 5-6 tablespoons of the powder in warm water and apply the paste for 20 minutes before washing off.
The muskroot or Indian Spikenard is great for waning blood impurities and also giving your complexion a healthy glow.
You can use this herb in two ways – consuming and applying. The quicker way is to consume it in the form of a tablet, which should not be more than 6mg; or you could even make a paste out of the dried herb (or powder) and water and apply it to your scalp before washing your hair.
