Hope you are all enjoying the rains this year. After a series of ever-rising temperatures,we are blessed with rain god. Black and dark clouds have surrounded us and they are not going to leave us for long. You all know changing of seasons and weather conditions can seriously stress out our hair. Many of us might think that with monsoon hair woes will start. Hair turn all frizzy, dry and not to forget the never stopping hair fall.
But don’t worry this year here we are with some DIY magic masks for your hair which will allow you to all dance and sing in the rain. Don’t believe us, have a look below –
Methi: If your hair is craving a solution to its monsoon hair woes like frizz, static flyaways and limpness, look no further than the hydrating goodness of Methi.
Soak 2 tablespoons of Methi seeds overnight in 1 cup of water and blend into a paste the next day. Add the paste to ½ a cup of yogurt and 1 tablespoon of Parachute Advansed Hair Oil. Apply the hair mask to the scalp & hair ends, and leave it on for 30 minutes before washing it off.
Oats: If you don’t want bad hair days to last the entire season, make Oats your hair’s best friend. It will trap the moisture in and tame the frizz out in a jiffy!
Blend ½ cup Oats, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and ½ cup milk into a paste. Apply this hair mask to your scalp and you hair as well. These ingredients are enough for shoulder length hair. If you have longer hair, make sure you double it up!
Aloe Vera Gel: The rainy months of humidity leave your locks parched. Quench your hair’s thirst with Aloe Vera- a natural humectant that attracts moisture and restores your hair’s hydration from within.
Blend in 3 tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel with 3 tablespoons of Parachute Advansed Hair Oil using a fork (for shoulder length hair; double up the ingredients in case of long hair). Apply the gel on your hair and scalp. You could even wrap your hair up in a hot towel for the oil to penetrate deeper and faster into the scalp.
Shikakai Powder: Make your hair strong from within with the Ayurvedic nourishment of Shikakai. With its strengthening, anti-fungal, and shine- promoting properties, no monsoon winds can stand a chance!
Mix 1 tablespoon of Shikakai powder with 1 cup of coconut oil. Shake vigorously, and let the mixture rest for 2 weeks. Keep shaking it in the middle as well. After 2 weeks, your Shikakai oil will be ready to use.
