DIY: Mustard Oil Treatments For Dry Hair

By Shabana

Hair is the most important feature of the human body. As it's the season of rain and high moisture content in the atmosphere, for most of us, it usually means bad hair days on a frequent basis. For many, frizzy hair is a daily battle and it can be frustrating for those who want shiny and silky hair all the time. To know more on the different home remedies for dry and frizzy hair, read on.

Different hair types behave differently. Some hair puff up due to humidity and other types turn limb and volume-less.

Frizzy hair can be very difficult to style. The main cause of it is lack of moisture. The cuticle layers on the hair strand need moisture to make it smooth.

Here, you will find a few natural DIY mustard oil treatments and masks for dry, lifeless hair. So, say good-bye to your bad hair days for good.

1) Fenugreek, Yogurt And Mustard Oil Mask:
Mustard oil makes the hair healthy, smooth and silky. Yogurt is a great conditioner and fenugreek seeds have the ability to pass the required amount of moisture to the hair. This mask will tame your frizzy hair and make it more manageable. The olive oil will give that extra shine.

- A handful of fenugreek seeds soaked in water overnight
- A cup of yogurt
- 2 tablespoons of mustard oil
- Some olive oil

• Blend the soaked fenugreek seeds in a blender.
• Add the yogurt, olive oil and mustard oil to this. Remember, the amount of yogurt, olive oil and mustard oil should depend on the length of your hair.
• Apply the paste to the lengths of your hair and scalp.
• Wash off after an hour with a mild shampoo.

2) Three Oils Treatment:
The combination of castor oil, mustard oil and olive oil is the ultimate home remedy for dry and frizzy hair. This elixir of three oils will give you smoother, shinier locks that will keep you earning compliments from your colleagues and friends.

- Equal amounts of castor oil, mustard oil and olive oil, depending on your hair length.

• Apply the mixture to the scalp and hair length and cover with a warm towel or a shower cap. Keep it this way for an hour.
• Wash with a mild shampoo.

3) Banana And Mustard Oil Mask:
Bananas are great hair conditioners because they are rich in natural oils, potassium, carbohydrates and vitamins. All these ingredients lock in the moisture to soften and add shine to your hair.

- 1 ripe banana
- 1/4th cup yogurt
- 2 tablespoons of mustard oil

• Mash the ripe banana with a fork.
• Mix it with yogurt and mustard oil to form a smooth paste without lumps.
• Apply the mask all over your hair and scalp. Put on a shower cap over your hair and leave it on for 30 minutes to an hour.
• Rinse your hair and then shampoo and condition as usual.
• Do this once a week.

4) Aloe Vera And Mustard Oil Mask
Everyone knows about the super-moisturising properties of aloe vera. This combination of mustard oil and aloe vera is a good hair growth stimulator too.

- Mustard oil as required
- 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel

• Combine both the ingredients and apply the mix onto the hair length and scalp.
• Wash off with a mild shampoo after a while. Your hair will instantly feel smoother.

These home remedies are easy and super-effective and can save you from a bad hair day. So, go out and flaunt your super silky and shiny tresses to the world and let them sit back and wonder about your little secret.
