An oily scalp or fizzy mane can ruin your entire day. Here are some solutions to common hair problems…
Situation One: I shampoo regularly, but the scalp gets oily within a few hours.
You will need : 2 tsp henna powder, ½ tsp fenugreek seeds powder, 3 tbs yogurt, 1 pinch powdered sugar.
Method : Whip all the ingredients together. Apply it gently on your scalp and hair. Leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse hair with water, to wash off the hair pack. Mix your shampoo with a few drops of water and massage on the scalp and then wash the hair.
Situation Two: I coloured my hair, but now it lacks lustre.
You will need : 1 tbs coconut oil, ½ tsp olive oil, 1 cup banana puree, 1 towel
Method : Mix both the oils and heat on low flame. Massage your hair and scalp with it. Dip the towel in a bucket of hot water and cover your hair with it. After three minutes, dab cotton in the banana puree and apply it on your hair. Leave it on for five minutes and wash with a gentle shampoo.
Situation Three: I’m losing a lot of hair.
You will need : 1 tsp fenugreek seeds (soaked overnight), 1 tsp henna, ½ tsp honey, 1 egg yolk (beaten).
Method : Grind fenugreek seeds and mix it with heena powder and honey. Soak cotton in the paste and apply it gently on the scalp and hair. Cover your hair with a shower cap and leave it on for 10 minutes. Wash off with plain water. Pat dry, with a towel and apply the egg yolk. Leave it on for five minutes and wash the hair again with a gentle shampoo.
Situation Four: Conditioning hair after every wash is a pain.
You will need : ½ avocado (mashed), 1 tsp honey, ¼ cup olive oil.
Method : Mix avocado with honey. Apply it on the hair and the scalp. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse. Heat olive oil and massage the scalp and hair with it. Leave it for 30 minutes and wash with a gentle shampoo. Follow this procedure once a week.
