Who doesn’t love to have beautiful hair? Or for that matter who doesn’t yearn to get a compliment for their hair? Healthy, lustrous hair require much more effort than you think. For this, you don’t have to end up spending thousands at a parlor or spa! A simple DIY mask can do more than the aforesaid.
Home-made hair masks are not only pocket friendly, but can also prove miraculous for your mane. First of all, making an herb-based mask is an easy process. Secondly, you don’t have to do it every day, once in a month is more than enough. Another advantage is the ingredients used, most of which can be procured from the kitchen itself!
Read on to know how you can make this simple but effective hair mask. Suitable for all hair types – from oily to dry and even frizzy, anybody can use this mask. Even men can!
- Fenugreek seeds (1 tablespoon)
- Fresh Yogurt (4-5 tablespoon)
- 2 tablespoon olive oil (or argan oil/coconut oil)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Keep it aside for 2 hours. You can cover the bowl with a lid. In this period of time, the entire mixture will become slimy and the fenugreek seeds will swell, making the mixture thick.
Alternatively, you can make the mixture like this:
Grind the fenugreek seeds into fine textured powder and add yogurt to it. This mixture can be kept aside for 2 – 3 hours.
How to apply hair mask?
Apply the mask throughout your scalp and hair. Wrap your head in a towel or shower cap. Leave on for half an hour. Let it dry naturally. Fenugreek seeds carry with them a pungent smell, which some find really annoying. To avoid this, you can roast the seeds over medium flame and constantly stir it. Use whole fat yogurt as it is best for a healthy scalp. If you have problem with yogurt, replace this with coconut milk, as this too has appreciable hair benefits.
Golden rule to follow during this DIY: Massage the mixture throughout the oiled hair. Make sure, you oil the hair an hour before.
Fenugreek is not only an aromatic spice, but is also known for its medicinal properties. It has been a ‘tested and tried’ ingredient in hair loss remedies since ages! Fenugreek nourishes the hair follicles by stimulating blood flow to the scalp. The high mucilage content in fenugreek seed makes it a good alternative to store-bought chemical conditioners. Yogurt works like magic for hair. Its protein content prevents breakage and split ends in hair follicles. Further, yogurt also adds shine and volume to your tresses.
How will your hair transform after this?
Benefits of this hair mask are immense, like:
- Healthy scalp with minimal dandruff
- Easy detangling
- Lesser split ends
