Glorious Mane- Packs

                  We all want our hair to be healthy, thick and lustrous. Our hair is an integral part of our beauty. So we should never neglect it. Today I have a few hairs aids to achieve a headful of glorious mane.
                 A hot oil massage followed by steaming, twice a week is the main step to caring for your mane. Apply oil on segments of hair at night before hitting bed so that the oil gets adequate time to work on your mane. Shampoo off in the morning. A good homemade oil for all kinds of hair is as follows-
 3 tbsp of castor oil, 3tbsp of coconut oil, 3 tbsp of olive oil, 3 tbsp of sesame oil. Take required quantity and add a few drops of lemon juice and holy basil leaves, warm it and apply on your hair.
               Shampoo hair with a homemade egg shampoo every week. Take an egg, 1tsp of olive oil, 1 tsp of lemon juice, 1 tbsp of your shampoo, 1/2 a cup of water and few drops of your favorite essential oil. Blend well and use on hair like a shampoo. Wash off after sometimes. Apply this shampoo on damp hair. The result of using this shampoo regularly is thick and shiny hair.
                 Another homemade shampoo is a paste made out of soapnut and hibiscus flowers and leaves. Grind the 2 together with required amount of water and use as a shampoo.
            Nothing can beat henna when it comes to conditioning your hair. It makes hair thick, shiny and healthy. Make a paste of-
                             4 tbsp of henna powder, 4 tbsp of  amla powder ( Indian gooseberry), 1 tbsp tulsi (holy basil leaves) , 2 tbsp of glycerin, 2 tbsp vinegar, 1 tbsp orange peel powder, 2 eggs and required amount of strong tea solution. Mix well and apply on hair and leave it on for 45 mins and shampoo off.
                   To arrest hair fall make a paste of- 5 tbsp of  fenugreek seeds, 5 tbsp of amla powder (Indian gooseberry), 5 tbsp of brahmi leaves ( bacopa monnieri or water hyssop), 5 tbsp of coconut water, 2 tbsp of lemon juice, 1 tbsp mint leaves, 2 eggs, a little honey and curd as required. Blend in a liquidizer and apply on hair for 45 mins. If you do this regularly your hair will become smooth, shiny, lustrous and regrow thickly.
            A nourishing pack for your hair-
            Take 5 tbsp of sandalwood powder, 5 tbsp of henna powder, 2 tsp of clove powder, 5 tbsp of ground mint leaves, 5 tbsp of  fuller's earth and mix with adequate amount of strong tea solution. Mix well and apply on your hair for 1 hour and wash off with water.
             An after shampoo rinse for thick and lustrous hair is as follows-
boil a handful each of curry leaves and mint leaves in a mug of water. Allow it to cool and add half a lemon's juice. Pour it over your shampooed hair and leave on for 5-10 mins. Rinse well with plain water till hair is clean.
              Also a mug of tea solution with half a lemon's juice can be used as a last rinse after shampooing for shiny hair.
              A quarter cup of cider vinegar in a mug of water can be used as a last rinse. It makes hair shiny and manageable. But use vinegar sparingly on your hair because it can be drying.
               Remember to be gentle with your hair and treat it as you would treat your skin. That's it for now..... Bye Babes
