Anti-bacterial property: The anti-bacterial property of honey helps to have a healthy scalp. This reduces the risk of dandruff and thus, hair fall.

An excellent hair conditioner: One of the interesting benefits of honey for hair is it serves as a conditioner to the hair. Whether you have oily hair or dry hair it doesn't really matter.

Things to keep in mind while using honey for hair:

→Mix honey with water or oils or other watery ingredients due to sticky nature of honey you might end up tangling your hair and damaging it.

☛Vinegar Rinse

Vinegar removes scaly/clumpy build-up or residue from hair shafts and closes the cuticles. Since residue coats the hair causing it to look dull, removing residue gives your hair more shine. By closing the cuticles, the hair slides more easily and there will be fewer tangles. Vinegar has a tonic action that promotes blood circulation in the small capillaries that irrigate the skin. When used regularly in your natural hair care routine, apple cider vinegar can revitalize your hair, leaving it soft and smooth.

Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse

1 part apple cider vinegar – As shown or Mix as per your hair length and thickness
1 part water - As shown or Mix as per your hair length and thickness

Directions:

To revive your hair to its days of smoothness, mix the apple cider vinegar and water together. After shampooing, pour the mixture into your hair. If you have a spray bottle, that works even better. That way you can spritz your hair with the mixture and massage it into your scalp. Let the apple cider vinegar concoction sit for a few minutes before rinsing fully with water. No need to use conditioner! The apple cider vinegar will leave hair feeling smooth and soft.

turmeric for Hair

Turmeric for Hair – Really?

I have boggled my mind with trying to get rid of Dry Skin / Dandruff for several months until I started discovering that help was in my kitchen. Sometimes we do not really see the cure that is available around us but go looking for it elsewhere… have you done that? Well I certainly was not only looking but was also running to seek answers to cure my dry scalp for it was so uncomfortable to live life with skin flaking and falling off 24/7 365 days… Disgusting right!

But not all of us are born into perfection and one needs to work on attaining perfection is what I believe! Be it Life, Character, Skin, Hair and so on…

While researching on this, I figured out that not many have shared on how to use this, but just its benefits. So I was curious enough to try it on my hair in numerous ways and to reap much benefit out of this wonderful spice that has several healing abilities to it.



Template not found

Treatment for Dandruff:

1. Warm-up your favorite hair oil for 10 to 20 seconds in a microwavable container. Drop a few pinches of turmeric powder into the warm oil and mix it well. Comb your hair thoroughly to untangle and use your fingers to massage the oil mixture into your scalp and hair well. Plastic wrap for 15 to 20 minutes before shower time. It removes the signs of dandruff by increasing circulation in your scalp and provides nutrition to your hair follicles.

You can also steam your hair if you have a steamer (mild steaming) with plastic wrap on or use a hot towel (Not White Certainly). Also keep aside a towel especially for this treatment since turmeric has a strong color to it and it might leave your towels with its color.

2. Prevents Hair Loss:

Turmeric mixed with any of your hair pack.

• Yogurt and Turmeric
• Honey Milk and Turmeric
• Egg and Turmeric
• Avocado Honey and Turmeric
• Coconut Milk / Cream & Turmeric
• Strawberry Antioxidant Pack For Hair Growth with Turmeric
• Fenugreek Hair Mask For Dandruff / Hair Fall with Turmeric
• Gram Flour Protein Hair Pack with Turmeric

Many More Hair masks will be posted soon!

Turmeric can be used in the treatment of various scalp conditions such as dermatitis and eczema that can lead to itchy, flaky skin, inflammation and thinning of hair. Fungal infections can also cause hair loss. Curcumin, an active ingredient in turmeric is effective against these ailments due to its anti fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, antioxidant, antiseptic and antibacterial properties.

TURMERIC SIDE EFFECTS - Since we are not consuming Turmeric :). We are left with very little side effects.

1. Allergic Reaction

Turmeric is generally safe in individuals of all age groups if consumed within 1500 mg/ day; however, some individuals may develop nausea, vomiting, gastric upset or diarrhea with high (or sometimes with normal doses). Turmeric containing ointments and lotions may lead to skin allergy, rash and burning sensation in some genetically susceptible individuals. In severe cases, hives, contact dermatitis and anaphylaxis may also develop

If you have a known history of allergy to organic coloring agents (especially yellow colored agents that include curcumin, there are fair chances that you will also be allergic to turmeric. In addition, since turmeric and ginger are members of same family, individuals who have allergy to any member of ginger family may also develop reaction to turmeric

Beauty Inside Out DIY Tips & Tricks

How To Use Garlic For Hair Growth?

Salon treatments can get expensive at times and sometimes we end up doing more harm than good. We really do not know the chemicals used in the treatments. At least I don't! along with that much styling using heat and chemicals my case “stress” may lead to various hair issues like dryness, frizz, hair fall and less growth of hair.

Although, we cannot give up on using products, some simple ingredients which is available in our kitchen can help our hair much needed boost and health. Garlic to the Rescue!

Now let’s look into how you we can use them:

We all love oiling our hair don’t we… if you are not, then start oiling your hair regularly in order to help your hair breath and keep it alive …Here are few tips on how I use garlic to my Hair Care Routine :)

•Hot Oil with Coconut and minced Garlic: Chop Garlic really fine and heat a sauce pan in slow or less heat. Add some coconut oil and almost bring to boil then add your finely minced garlic into it and enjoy the sizzle until its turn dark brown. Make sure to keep a watch, then take your pan off the heat and let it cool completely.

Now Let see some benefits .. Shall We!

• It aids hair follicles by eliminating harmful substances from the scalp
• The properties of garlic help in treating the affected scalp and dandruff
• Garlic helps improve the texture of your hair and strengthens the roots- (I so need this :))
• The compound allicin present in garlic helps in increasing the circulation of hemoglobin towards the scalp, thus minimizing hair fall to a great extent.
• Raw garlic is highly enriched with Vitamin C which is great for the health of your hair.
• Garlic also contains iron which aids blood flow to the hair follicles.
• Its properties of killing germs and bacteria help in fighting against various bacterial infections.

And Many More!!!!!

Then remove/filter the fried garlic and pour it into microwavable container, heat it up for 10 to 20 sec. Once you have your oil ready… make sure it is more than warm and start massaging your scalp in circular motion and evenly comb through with wide tooth comb and let it sit for 1 or more hour and wash clean and enjoy you beautiful hair.

And be sure that you have done your very best to your hair… and your hair is loving you back :)

•Adding garlic to my natural oils: You can instill garlic into your oil such as olive or coconut almond oil.

How- Chop some garlic into very small pieces (dry fry them( no oil) if you like in nonstick pan) and put it in the oil in a jar or bottle over a period of time,say 10 days. This concoction should be kept in the fridge to prevent it from going rotten.

This is the magic portion : Advise mixing about a tablespoon of this oil into your shampoos, deep conditioners, hot oil treatments, pre-shampoo treatments where you can be sure to wash your hair afterwards to avoid the garlicky smell.

Happy Hair Day All! Hope you Like it. Let me know how it turns out!
