Shahnaz Husain Hair Care Tips
1. Fresh Fruit And Vegetables
Make sure you include fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet.
Drinking water not only quenches your thirst and keeps you hydrated, but it also aids various functions of the body. Most importantly it is great for the hair. Have at least 10 glasses of water every day.
3. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is one of the best as it works wonders for your hair.
Heat pure coconut oil and apply it to the scalp and hair at least once a week.
- Dip a towel in hot water and tie it around the hair like a turban.
- Leave it on for five minutes.
- Follow it three to four times.
- This helps the oil to be absorbed better in the scalp and hair.

4. Hair Wash
Hair wash forms an essential part of hair care. Make sure you wash your hair more than usual during summers or humid weather. It helps remove sweat, grease and dirt. People with oily hair must wash hair three to four times a week. Whereas people with dry hair, must wash it twice a week. This is important for removing not just dirt, but chemicals and pollutants too. Do not overdo it. Too much washing can rob all the natural elements from your hair. This results in ripping off the moisture and making your hair lifeless, dry, brittle and dull.
5. Herbal Shampoos
Use a mild herbal shampoo to wash hair and avoid chemical based ones. Always follow up with a conditioner that is suited for your hair type.
6. For Dry Hair
Dry hair is difficult to manage.
To maintain dry hair, warm a teaspoon of castor oil and coconut oil. Mix the two well and apply/massage onto your scalp and hair evenly. Take a hot towel and wrap it around your head. Keep this on, preferably the entire night and if that’s not possible, for a few hours. Wash off with warm water.
This hot towel wrap treatment is excellent for shining, strong and lustrous hair.
7. Lemon For Oily Hair
For those who have oily hair, add a lemon to half a mug of water. Use this water as a final rinse after washing your hair.
8. Henna Pack With Lemon, Coffee, Egg, Oil And Curd

9. Natural Hair Rinse
This too is another popular and effective hair tip by Shahnaz Husain.
- Soak a handful each of dried amla, reetha and shikakai in a liter of water overnight.
- The next day, boil till the water is reduced to half the original quantity.
- Let it cool
- Now strain and use this mixture to rinse your hair.
- Store the remaining quantity in the fridge.
10. Prevent Graying
Amla is a great remedy for a lot of your hair and skin problems. It is one of the most natural ways of preventing graying of hair too.
To use, add the juice of one raw amla to a glass of water and have it every day. Alternatively, if you use henna for your hair, add some amla to it. Soak a handful of dry amla in two cups of water overnight. Strain the water the next morning and keep it for use. Grind the amla and add to the henna powder. Also, add four teaspoons of lemon juice, coffee, two raw eggs and sufficient amla water to make a thick paste. Apply this on the hair and keep it on for about two hours before washing off with water.
This isn’t just a great way of preventing gray hair. It also adds shine to your hair.
11. Lemon For Dandruff
- To get rid of dandruff, oil your hair with coconut oil and leave overnight.
- The next day, apply lemon juice on the scalp and wash off after 30 minutes.
12. Avoid Heat
Most hair styling techniques involve methods that expose our hair to a certain amount of damage. Heat is never good for the hair and should be avoided as much as possible.
13. Avoid Hot Water
Hot water has the same effect on your hair as heat treatments. It strips the hair of its natural moisture and makes it dry. Never wash your hair with hot water. Use cold water instead.
14. Towel Dry
When drying your hair, make sure you always pat dry and do not rub it down. Rubbing wet hair vigorously increases the chances of breakage and hair damage.
15. Avoid Tying Too Tight
Tying your hair tightly too often can cause damage and lead to hair breakage. Instead, tie it loosely.
16. Pillow Friction
Friction from the pillow case can also cause your hair to break and fall out. Avoid using rough surfaces like cotton and stick to satin instead. This reduces friction and chances of hair damage, and the breakage goes down considerably.
