Nourished and well-maintained hair will make you will feel in control of yourself. And eventually, makes you feel confident and beautiful.
Here are my 5 natural ways to nourish your hair:
1. Mixture of Coconut oil and camphor
Camphor has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which helps cure dandruff and reduces hair fall.
Camphor also moisturizes the dry scalp and hence prevents dryness and itchiness of the scalp.
It also helps promotes proper blood circulation in the scalp region, which helps nourish the hair and makes the hair strong and unbreakable.
Coconut oil is an ancient and effective hair solution.
You can use – cold-pressed, virgin or natural coconut oils as they are the best for your hair.
Coconut oil is packed with vitamins and minerals. The oil gives shine and nourishment to the hair.
The antifungal and antibacterial properties present the coconut oil helps cleanse and strengthen the hair.
Coconut oil locks in the moisture in your hair which helps beat the dryness and keeps the hair nourished and healthy.
Coconut oil cures the itchiness immediately and also helps get rid of dandruff.
Both camphor and coconut oil are affordable, readily available and great for the hair.
To make this oil mixture take a cup of coconut oil and add 3 -4 camphor tablets to it. Heat this mixture till the camphor starts dissolving in the coconut oil.
Massage this mixture of coconut oil and camphor into your scalp and hair.

Applying camphor coconut oil and allowing it to stay in your hair overnight will give even better results.

2. Apply henna instead of hair dye
There is a sudden increase in the number of people highlighting or dying their hair.
This has led to the availability of a wide range of “hair colouring products”, at a click of a button.
But, the art of hair colouring is ancient!
During the ancient eras, people simply used natural dyes made from parts of the plants.
Eventually, Henna and Indigo became the most popular and effective dyes for the hair.
Henna is the most popular and a great ingredient to naturally dye hair, across the world.
Henna can strengthen, condition and nourish your hair from deep within!
As Henna is a natural dye, it minimizes hair damaging and breakage, unlike chemical products.
Henna stimulates the scalp and hair follicles. This helps in the increase of hair growth.
Henna helps strengthen the hair and adds volume to hair.
Henna has conditioning properties that help improve and retain the hydration, softness and shine of the hair.
Henna powder is a great hair cleanser and thus helps combat dandruff.
Make your own henna hair pack, by adding water. Or, you can choose from – oil, curd, boiled tea leaves, coffee powder, anything of your choice to make a nutritive healthy henna hair pack.
Apply is DIY henna hair pack, and leave it for 3 hours and then rinse your hair. Do not shampoo.

Shampoo your hair the next day. You will definitely notice a great difference in your hair.

Curd is one of the oldest remedies for hair care in India.
