Hair Care

Healthy Diet

If you wish your hair to be long and strong, you must have a healthy diet. You must include the following in your diet:
•    For normal hair: Fish, chicken, lentils, and sprouts.
•    For dry hair: Eat raw vegetables, lentils, brown rice, bananas, nuts, and vitamin E capsules.
•    For oily hair: Green vegetables, salads, yogurt, and fresh fruits.

Use Mild Shampoo

The moment you step out of your house, your hair becomes vulnerable to damage and dirt. It is very important for you to clean your hair at regular intervals. Also, you must be very careful while choosing your shampoo.

  • For dry hair: Use shampoo which does not remove the remaining oils from your hair.
  • For oily hair: Opt for a shampoo which stops activity on your oily scalp.

Use Egg for Conditioning

Egg is the best conditioner for your hair. Yolk in the egg is filled with proteins and fat which helps moisturizing the hair while the white part removes excess oils from the scalp.

Lemon juice and Olive Oil

If you have an improper diet or you expose your hair to harsh climate in excess, you may have an itchy scalp. Take 2 tablespoon lemon juice and mix olive oil and water to it. Apply the mixture on your scalp and leave it for 20 minutes. Rinse it off with normal water.

Honey and Olive Oil

Your hair can be damaged to a very large extent due to sun rays. To combat this, put ½ cup honey and 2 tablespoon olive oil to clean hair. Wash it off after 20 minutes.

Beer and Egg

If you have a limp looking hair and you wish to add volume to it, try beer and egg. Take ½ cup flat beer and add 1 tablespoon oil and 1 egg. Apply it on your hair and leave it for 15 minutes. Rinse with normal water.


Hair Care


You can fight the frizzyness of your hair by simply massaging mashed avocado into your hair.

Brown Sugar

To fight dandruff, brown sugar is the best remedy for you. Take 2 parts of brown sugar and add 1 part of your normal conditioner to it. Scrub it on your scalp gently and then rinse it off with water.

Aloe Vera

If your receding hair line is giving you sleepless nights, aloe vera is the perfect solution for you. Take aloe vera gel and mix it with ½ tablespoon lemon juice. To this, add 2 tablespoon coconut oil and mix it thoroughly. Massage it on the scalp and leave it for 20 minutes. Wash your hair with water.

You can keep your hair nourished with these tips and keep yourself away from harsh chemicals.
