D.I.Y. Hair Mask for Healthy, Shiny & Frizz free hair..

Hello guys… Welcome back!!

Some of the members of my Instagram family asked me DIY remedies for hair. It’s winters and most of us are facing dry hair, dandruff & hair fall already. I know it’s been a while since you guys have asked me for DIY remedies for hair but yes, it’s definitely because i try remedies myself before suggesting them to you. So today I am sharing an amazing recipe for your hair that will without any doubt cut off the frizz, add shine to hair and if used regularly can help in getting rid of dandruff and boost hair growth. So without any further ado let’s get started 🙂

Ingredients: All you need is Green tea, Honey, Yogurt and any carrier oil (I have used coconut oil)

How is it useful for hair?

Green tea is rich in polyphenols. Polyphenols promotes hair growth, strengthens the roots and reduces hair fall. It is Anti-inflammatory in nature which helps in getting rid of dry scalp, has anti-oxidants that is great for cleansing of scalp and reducing dandruff.

Yogurt repairs damaged hair, handles frizz, reduces dandruff as it has anti-fungal properties and adds shine leaving hair smooth and silky.

Honey has great moisturizing properties that help in conditioning of hair and adds shine to dull hair.

Coconut oil helps in reducing breakage of hair, prevents hair fall and nourishes scalp.

How to make the mixture?

  • Take 2-3 teaspoons of Green tea grind it in a grinder.

DIY hair pack

How to use?

Apply the hair pack from roots to tips with fingers also massage well onto scalp. Let the moisture and the benefits of all the magical ingredients seep into the scalp for amazing results. Don’t forget to apply the hair pack to the ends of the hair that will help in reducing split ends. Once you are done applying the hair pack cover it with a shower cap and let the warmth help treat your hair and scalp from within. Keep it for 1 to 1.5 hours and wash it off with luke warm water. You can also use a mild hair cleanser to wash off the hair pack well. I did not use any conditioner onto my hair as I wanted to see how my hair feels on using this remedy.

My experience:

On using this hair pack my hair felt so smooth and silky. My hair was frizz free and had a shine to my hair. I never focused much on DIY remedies for hair but I have now decided to take some time for myself and use variety of remedies and share the best of them with you.

So guys surely give this remedy a try and let me know how it works for you!!

FRIZZY HAIR?? DO CARE…  

Aloha Guys!!!

We all love Healthy & Lustrous hair!

Who doesn’t wish for smooth & silky hair??

Well, Everybody does!

Having manageable Hair boosts up our confidence. We suddenly start feeling even more beautiful, but most of the times it’s the frizz that doesn’t allow us to do so.Hair is frizzy and dehydrated due to many reasons.

So what may be the reasons for frizzy hair?

  • POLLUTION

Pollution can take a major toll on your tresses.Gas pollutants, smoke, dust & dirt settles both on hair & the scalp causing irritation, damage, dandruff & frizz.

  • LACK OF WATER INTAKE

Drinking at least 2 liters of water a day helps in strengthening hair & making it look healthy.Drinking water triggers energy transmitted at scalp and runs to ends of your hair. The roots should be hydrated & that’s possible when you drink good amount of water.

  • USING HOT WATER WHILE HAIR WASH

Avoid using hot water while washing your hair.Hot water makes scalp dry & takes away all the moisture which your hair needs.So, using Luke warm water is best to have healthy hair as it prevents frizz and closes the cuticles of your hair strands which doesn’t allow moisture to leave.

  • EXCESSIVE USE OF SHAMPOO

Shampooing very often can make hair dry & frizzy.It’s recommended to dilute the shampoo with water which will help maintain the quality of hair.Also diluting shampoo with water reduces harshness of the shampoo.

  • CHEMICAL DYES OR BLEACH

The quality of hair is hampered by using chemical dyes & bleach leading to hair fall & frizzy hair.

  • BLOW DRYING, HEATING OR STYLING

Hair when washed should be allowed to air dry, do not blow dry hair until its necessary. Heating, styling hair can cause damage promoting to frizzy hair.

  • NOT BRUSHING HAIR BEFORE WASHING

Hair needs to be detangled before you wash them.Also combing hair in a wrong way can damage hair strands.Usually people comb hair from top to bottom, but this is not the right way.Starting from bottom & combing way up towards the scalp is a best method.Once this is done, your hair is ready to be washed or shampooed. The shampoo will now reach evenly over your scalp and hair making it clean.

  • RARE TRIMMING OF HAIR

Ends of hair are rough & dry which stops hair growth and makes hair look & feel dull adding to annoying split end.So, it’s good to trim hair every 2 months for healthy and long hair.

  • HORMONAL IMBALANCE

Hormonal imbalance can lead to a lot of breakage, hair fall & frizz. You need to eat well for getting rid of this. Eating fruits and veggies helps. Avoid eating junk & make sure you are hydrated.

  • LACK OF MOISTURE TO HAIR

Lack of moisture to hair causes frizzy and unmanageable hair. Deep conditioning or leave in conditioners can treat your hair well.Once you understand the causes of dry and frizzy hair, it’s necessary to know the solutions.

So, I’ll be sharing some oils & products that will help you combat frizz.

  • COCONUT OIL

Coconut oil is the most traditional and basic oil which reduces protein loss. It works well when used as pre shampoo treatment or hot oil treatment. It easily penetrates the hair shaft (stems) & keeps hair hydrated & that prevents frizz.

  • ARGAN OIL

Argan oil is used as hair treatment oil. It’s extremely beneficial for both hair & scalp. Vitamin E is found in argan oils in large quantities.Vitamin E oil promotes hair growth as it contains antioxidants. When applied on scalp it boosts the cells & encourages them to produce healthy hair. Argan oil helps make hair frizz free & it can also undo some amount of damage caused through chemical treatment & dyes, also split ends. Argan oil also aids in beard growth.

  • OLIVE OIL

Olive oil has tons of benefits. Many of us already know that it’s good for skin, to consume but guys it works fantastic on hair as well.Olive oil contains vitamin E which is an antioxidant & promotes hair growth. It helps hair grow stronger, longer and softer, kicks dandruff off & cuts off frizzy hair.

Now if you want instant results, You can use some products along with these oils.

There are few beneficial products available in market.
