You don’t need expensive products to repair and rejuvenate dry or damaged strands. These genius homemade deep conditioning recipes work like a charm.
Banana mask for soft strandsBlend one ripe banana and add 4 tbsp coconut oil, 1tbsp glycerin and 2 tbsp honey to the mixture. You need a smooth paste to ensure that it washes off without leaving bits in your hair. Apply this mixture to your hair and cover with a shower cap. Wash off after 30 minutes.
Egg mask to nourish your strands Mix three egg yolks with 3 tbsp olive oil and add a few drops of any essential oil of your choice. Leave the mixture on your strands for 20 minutes before shampooing with warm water. Femina
Aloe vera for unbeatable shine Mix 5 tbsp of aloe vera gel with 2 tbsp of a silicone-free conditioner. Apply mixture to hair and use a wide-toothed comb to comb it in thoroughly. Leave it on for 20 minutes before washing off.
Honey for softness and shine Honey can help revive dry and damaged hair by boosting moisture and adding shine. Being a natural humectant, honey attracts moisture and retains it. It also contains antioxidants and nutrients that nourish the hair from within. Dissolve half a cup of honey in 1 mug of water. Rinse the hair with this mixture, while slowly working the honey in the hair. Let it sit for 20 minutes and wash with lukewarm water.
Yoghurt mask for damaged hair Yoghurt works like a dream when it comes to softening damaged and rough hair. The presence of lactic acid and protein in the yoghurt is the secret. The protein repairs the damage, while lactic acid makes the hair soft. Take a cup of fresh, unflavoured yoghurt and add a few teaspoons of melted coconut or olive oil to it. Mix well and apply as a hair mask. Shampoo after 30 minutes to reveal soft, shiny hair. Femina
Argan oil for strength Known for its ultra-nourishing properties, argan oil is good for the scalp and hair. It penetrates deep into the hair follicles, moisturising them from within and thus makes a great natural conditioner. Twice a week, massage the head with warm argan oil and wash overnight. Alternatively, you can use it as a leave-in conditioner. Being non-greasy in nature, argan oil will not weigh the hair down. Also, it can help tame flyaways and add sheen to the hair.
Tea rinse to fight dullness It is widely known that tea is rich in antioxidants. Topical application of tea can nourish the scalp and condition the hair while adding shine to it. The caffeine found in the tea also encourages hair growth while fighting common scalp infections. Both green and black tea can be excellent natural conditioners for the hair. Boil 3-4 tea bags in 1 mug of water until the water reduces to half. Let it cool and add to a spray bottle. Spray the tea mix all over the hair and scalp, and wear a shower cap. Rinse with plain water after 30 minutes.
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinse for all hair types It cannot get simpler than this. ACV contains acetic acid that helps remove the product build-up from hair and unclog pores on the scalp. Along with that, the rich nutrient content, including vitamins B and C and potassium, nourishes the locks, thus making it soft and shiny. Also, ACV is gentle on the scalp and does not disrupt the pH balance. Mix three tablespoons of raw ACV into a mug of water. Use this as the last-hair rinse after shampooing for luscious locks.
