Old is gold when it comes to these beauty secrets and tricks that have been passed down through generations. India's mothers and grandmothers have natural home made remedies for everything. It was time that we brought some of those to you and started to take the ingredients around us seriously.
For Hair Like Silk, Wash It With Curd
Curd or Dahi or yoghurt is often used as a cooling agent for your stomach. It works like magic on your hair too. Curd is the best ingredient to use if you want silky and shiny hair.
1. Take curd in a bowl (quantity according to hair)
2. A dash of lemon juice
3. 1 tablespoon honey
4. 2 tablespoons coconut oil
5. Apply the paste on your scalp. Leave it on for 20 minutes.
6. Wash it off with water. You may shampoo your hair after washing it off.
Nourish & Strengthen Your Hair With Amla
Amla is also called gooseberry which is an ancient Indian favourite. When used in its original form, Amla has numerous benefits for the skin, hair, as well as immunal and digestive health!
Amla gives a natural and radiant glow. Amla juice or powder with honey make an excellent fair face pack.
If you are somewhere in your mid-20s and you are already spotting a salt and pepper look, condition your hair with Amla juice. Amla will strengthen your hair and give it volume while darkening those pesky greys.
Moisture Your Skin With Honey
Honey has antioxidants and healing elements that not only moisturise your skin and hair but repair it too.
Honey on your skin is just as good as honey on your pancake. Use it as a moisture mask.
1. Take some honey.
2. Layer your skin with raw honey
3. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes and wash it off.
Honey also cares for your pores. To keep your pores clean, treat your skin to a mix of honey with some jojoba oil.
