Home remedies for your crowning glory

For split ends and dry, brittle hair: 

Take two tablespoons honey, one tablespoon sesame seed (til) oil and one egg yolk. Mix together and apply on the scalp and hair. Wash your hair after half an hour.

For oily hair and dandruff: 

Heat pure coconut oil, sesame seed (til) oil or pure olive oil and apply on the scalp at night, using cotton wool. Rub gently as you apply the oil, to dislodge dandruff flakes. Leave the oil overnight. Next morning, apply the juice of a lemon on the scalp and wash your hair after half an hour.


To improve hair texture and colour:

Mix one teaspoon castor oil with one tablespoon pure coconut oil. Heat and apply on the hair and scalp. Leave overnight.

Hair oil with amla and methi: 

Take 10 to 15 gms of dry amla and one teaspoon fenugreek (methi) seeds and grind them coarsely. Add them to 100 ml pure coconut oil or sesame seed (til) oil. Put all the ingredients in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Keep it in the sun daily for 15 days, shaking it each day in order to stir the ingredients. After 15 days, strain the oil through a clean muslin cloth and keep the oil in a glass jar. This oil may be used to apply on the hair. It will benefit all hair types, as well as dandruff conditions.

If you have been using chemical colourants and styling procedures, it is more important to nourish your hair regularly with natural ingredients. They are non-toxic and do not harm the structure of the hair. In fact, they are ideal for protective, preventive and even corrective hair care.
