Your hair needs ample moisturisation just as your skin, because that’s what keeps your hair from becoming dry and brittle. Moisturised and hydrated hair is elastic, and less prone to tangles and breakage! Apart from coconut oil, oils aren’t really good at hydrating hair as they seal the hair instead of penetrating the cuticle. If you’re looking to boost hydration for your tresses, these natural ingredients are your best bet. Use them on their own or in DIY hair packs!
An excellent source of protein and calcium, curd is also rich in vitamin A, potassium, and magnesium, all of which boost hair health. Curd and yoghurt are known to reduce frizz and soften and moisturise hair. Curd also has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties which make it a good treatment option for dandruff.
Packed with polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, avocados are great for overall health owing to their good fats content. Not only are these fats beneficial for dull, dry, and dehydrated hair, but they offer benefits for all hair types. That’s not all, this yummy fruit pulp, when applied to hair, also nourishes the scalp and helps the tresses look healthy and shiny.
While rich in natural oils, bananas are also packed with carbohydrates, vitamins, and potassium. These super nutrients help soften hair strands and protect their natural elasticity, prevent split ends and breakage, nourish scalp and control dandruff, make hair shiny, manageable, strong, voluminous, and also repair sun-damaged hair.
Honey is an emollient, which helps smoothen hair follicles and adds shine to dull hair. Honey is also a humectant, helping moisturise dry hair by bonding with water molecules. In addition to this, honey is packed with nutrients that boost hair health. This natural antiseptic also keeps the hair and scalp healthy by alleviating conditions like dandruff and dermatitis.
Eggs not only help moisturise hair, but also repair hair and prevent breakage by conditioning the scalp. Eggs are rich in protein and biotin, and can give your scalp and hair the much-needed nourishment they need, stimulating hair growth, increasing hair strength, and improving hair texture.
