Long, thick and lustrous hair is high on every woman’s wishlist. But everyday exposure to dust, pollution, sun and dirt makes it an almost impossible dream to achieve. Products available in the market contain chemicals which do more harm than good in the long run. So how do you combat all these problems while still keeping hair healthy and strong?

Here are some easy homemade beauty tips for hair to follow:

1. General Health: Diet

  •  Normal Hair: Fish, chicken, dals, sprouts.
  •  Dry Hair: Raw vegetables, pulses, brown rice, bananas, nuts, vitamin E capsules.
  •  Oily Hair: Green leafy vegetables, salads, fresh fruits, yogurt.

2. Shampoo: Mild shampoo

The most important of steps to keeping your hair healthy is keeping it clean. And the product you choose needs to be right for you. Always keep them mild.

  • For dry hair: Choose one doesn’t further strip your hair of its natural oils.
  • For Oily hair: Choose one that works on limiting the activity of your oily scalp

Do use a clarifying shampoo every once in awhile or the product build up will effect the results that you shampoo has. Ladies, please remember that the shampoo is meant to clean your scalp and not condition your hair so aver doing the shampoo for dry hair is not going to help you in anyway. If anything it will only cause harm in the long run. Use only a drop the size of a coin for one wash, it is more than sufficient.

3. The best conditioners: Egg

    Aloevera surely does something to your hair init! I haven’t come across any natural ingredient this way, which clears the scalp giving a very shiny and smooth texture to the hair. Use aloe vera for cleansing the scalp once a week, it clears any product build up of the shampoo and conditioner making the scalp clear.
