4 Coconut oil home remedies

Veganbaking.net

Hello friendsss!! Hope you are enjoying a fun filled weekend.

It has been many days since I wrote  any D.I.Y post and my friends started asking for one.

So here are the 4 coconut oil home remedies for healthy and glowing hair. Coconut oil is kind of a boon to hair. If you have no time for any beauty recipe or even if you don’t have patience enough for those things, a simple coconut oil can help you with good hair.

  1. Hair fall

    Mix 2 tsp of coconut oil with 2tsp honey. Apply this to scalp and wait for an hour. Shampoo thoroughly after an hour.

  2. Pack for hair fall

    To coconut oil, add Olive oil. Also add 2tsp curd and a tsp honey. Apply this to scalp and wait for an hour before washing it off.

  3. Dandruff

    Take some coconut oil in a bowl and add few neem leaves. Heat them till the leaves become slightly dark. Apply this mixture to scalp regularly. You can find other home remedies with Neem here .

  4. Dandruff 2

    To 3tsp of coconut oil, add a tsp  lemon juice. Apply this to scalp. Use it once in 15 days. Over using this method might dry the hair.

Hope you find these tips helpful.

I have written a post with multiple hair packs, which you can find here.

V CareShikakai Paste.

Hi friends!!! I already reviewed V CARE hair growth vitalizer which is one of my favorite hair care products . V care is the brand which is established by a Trichologist . They provide quality hair and skin care products at affordable prices.

Along with V CARE hair growth vitalizer , I also use V care shikakai paste . In childhood I used to wash my hair with shikakai but by the time I entered college  , I found it very messy to use and difficult to wash off . If you don’t apply it properly ,hair will remain greasy . With all these problems , I shifted to shampoo & conditioner regime.. I came to this product when I started searching for a hair wash without parabens or sulphate.When I saw this I was instantly attracted. I was still skeptical but as it was cheap I tried.

V CareShikakai Paste.

Price : 150rs/150gm , 89rs/75gm

Package: It is a simple tube package.

Ingredient list

V CareShikakai Paste.

V CareShikakai Paste.

Texture: It is a dark green colored paste with consistency not too thick or not too runny.

How to use :

Take the needed amount of paste (depends on hair length  ) add double quantity of water and mix well until it lathers.

Massage from the hair root to tip ,leave for 5 mins. You do not need any conditioner for this.

My take on V CareShikakai Paste.

Initially i was very uncomfortable using this as this was kind of extra work. You need to know the exact amount to use ,you need to massage properly for  a clean wash . But i started liking it after the first wash it self . It made my hair look healthy ,shiny and it was soft to touch. I had few incidents when i failed to wash in a proper way and my hair was left greasy.

10 MONSOON HAIR CARE tips

 

monsoon hair care tips

Along with everyone i too am entirely depressed this monsoon . August seemed to bring some happy moments with rains but that lasted for only few days. Hyderabad is actually getting some occasional ‘peak a boo’ kind of rains . Still you need to take care of your hair in the monsoon .

1.WASH IT

This season do not wash your hair too frequent  but make sure you wash it when you soak in rain to avoid infections.

Add vinegar to water before the final rinse.

 2 .DANDRUFF IS A RISK

monsoon hair care tips

Especially if you are exposed to rains frequently. There are chances that you might feel itchy in the scalp . Start using an Anti Dandruff shampoo in that case. Otherwise use a mild shampoo without much chemicals.

3.CONDITIONER IS A MUST

mansoon hair care tips

This season hair becomes frizzy and puffy easily . Do not forget a conditioner after you wash your hair . Use it from below the level of your ear. Using conditioner on the scalp can increase the risk of dandruff.

4.MILD PRODUCTS

Avoid dumping too many chemicals on your hair like sparys ,gels and colors  .Use mild hair care products.

5.OILING YOUR HAIR

Hot oil therapy once in while helps your keep up with the changing weather. However, avoid oiling before going out can be risky ,in case you get wet. The mixture of oil+ sweat+rain makes a tasty seat for infections.

6.GO SIMPLE

Monsoon is a tricky season. You can not leave your hair loose. There are chances that you might end up like Courteney Cox from her famous  Friends episode. If you go out with a complicated braid or bun and get damp ,it will get hours to get your hair dry. (Even thinking about it is giving me headache). So choose simple hairstyles like pony or some uncomplicated braids.

7.AVOID RUBBING

Rubbing your hair after a wash increases the risk of it getting frizzy. Instead try simply patting your hair with towel.

8.USE SOME SERUM

Use some serum at the ends of hair to reduce the risk of frizzing.

9.CLEAN COMB

Clean the comb once every week to reduce the risk of infections. Soak it in water with an anti-septic liquid in it before washing.
