Dry hair, hair fall and hair thinning are much more common in the present age than they were during our grandmother’s time. While it is convenient for us to blame the rising pollution and chemical-based hair products for taking a severe toll on our beautiful locks, we all know that damaged hair is play of a couple of factors, including unhealthy lifestyle and dietary habits, inadequate or untimely sleeping hours, and high stress levels. It stands out that your hair, especially dry hair, need as much attention as your skin and ignoring a proper hair care regime can make them look dull and frizzy. But the good news is you needn’t go too far, these 8 ingredients from your humble kitchen pantry can come to your aid to treat dry hair and bring back its lost shine and softness.
Egg: Eggs work wonders for dry hair. An excellent source of protein, they help to strengthen and repair damaged hair and also add moisture to dry hair. Take two eggs and separate the yolk from the whites. Add a little water to the yolks and a tablespoon of honey. Beat until the mixture is slightly fluffy. Apply the mixture all over your hair, and keep it on for 30 minutes before washing. Rinse with mild shampoo and see the change for yourself.
Curry Leaves: Apart from the extra flavor in your food, curry leaves can prove to be a useful remedy for dry hair. Packed with calcium, vitamins, phosphorous and iron, a curry leaf hair pack can bring your dull locks back to life instantly. Add 5-6 curry leaves to coconut oil and then heat the oil. Apply the paste gently on to the scalp and your hair. Leave it on for 15-20 minute and then rinse off with a mild shampoo.
