Do you envy girls who sport a new hairstyle every third month yet manage to retain the lustrous hair texture? Well, if you’re finding the answers to no avail, then hair experts tell you how to have shining tresses.
Rohini Wadhwani, cosmetologist, Skin Essentials, says, “It’s very important to invest time in grooming your hair. A little effort can help you have healthy and gleaming hair.” She suggests little hair care at home to keep hair in good health. Mini Yadav of Bella Madonna, suggests “deep cleaning and condition for hair.”
Model Amanpreet Wahi feels it’s the stress that works adversely on your mane. “Apart from trying remedies, one should first of all try and not take stress, as it’s one of the main reason for hair fall. I make it a point to oil my hair once a week and have a hair spa. I don’t blow dry my hair as frequently as I used to earlier.” The model adds that she applies a paste of egg white, a little curd and a dash of lemon on my hair to keep them smooth and silky. Skin care expert Naresh Arora, Chase Aroma & Skin Care, says, “It becomes very important to take good care of one’s hair, as nowadays people go for different kinds of styling that involves use of chemical products.” Here are a few homemade hair care tips that the experts share:
Daily hair care
Dandruff - Add a few drops of tea
tree oil and chamomile to coconut
oil. Apply to the scalp for one hour
Oily Hair- Add lavender oil and strained sage tea to your shampoo and rinse.
Thin hair - Add rosemary oil in olive oil. Apply to scalp at least once a week.
Dry hair- Add half mashed banana and two tsp honey to one cup of organic plain yogurt. Leave mixture on the scalp for up to 40 minutes for a weekly organic conditioning treatment. Or apply egg yolk, mashed avocado with olive oil or yogurt. Keep for 15 mins and rinse.
Weak hair - You can also apply egg yoke mixed with curd and lemon juice for extra sheen and luster. Keep it for half an hour and then rinse.
Lustrous hair- To avoid dirt and dust on your scalp, use lavender oil based shampoo and aloe vera based hair conditioner. This will add bounce to your hair and make them look silky.
