Long, shining, lustrous hair is on everybody's wish list and everyone would like to have hair that literally bounces with health. Hair has often been seen as a symbol of beauty across cultures and many societies place great importance upon healthy, lustrous hair.
Beautiful hair is also seen as a sign of good health, so biologically human beings are conditioned to view beautiful hair as being attractive.
However, healthy hair can be a far-fetched dream for many. Environmental pollution, irregular habits, stress, addictions, an improper diet and various other factors can all wreak havoc on hair and skin.
Hair is actually composed of dead skin cells, which is great because imagine how much it would hurt every time you cut your hair? Nevertheless, lusterless hair indicates that there is something wrong with your body and you need to fix it pronto.
Hair is slightly acidic in nature, and while oils could nourish its cuticles, minerals present in hard water, hair colour or hair products could damage it irreparably.
Keep your hair's health in mind whenever you apply anything on your scalp and you'll have beautiful hair in no time. And that is the reason it's always better to go for natural homemade hair packs. So, here are five amazing hair packs both you and your hair will love:
The Egg Yolk Pack:
Take the yolk of an egg, and add some coconut milk to it. Add a vitamin E capsule and mix well. Avoid mixing the white of the egg, as it dries the scalp and can even cause dandruff. Use a brush or a ball of cotton wool to apply this mask all over your scalp and hair. Keep it on for 45 minutes and wash off with a pH balanced shampoo.
The Onion And Garlic Pack:
Sulphur is great for hair regeneration, and is found in large amounts in onion and garlic. Make a generous paste of onion and garlic and apply it all over your scalp. If you have dry hair, add some castor oil into the mix, or oil your hair with a mixture of castor oil and coconut oil before you begin. Rub any excess onion or garlic juice into your scalp as well. Keep the pack on for as much time as possible, although 45 minutes are often effective enough.
The Gram Flour And Honey Pack:
Mix about two tablespoons of pure organic honey into about two tablespoons of gram flour, till you reach the right consistency; not too thick nor too runny. Apply this hair pack all over your scalp and hair and leave it on for 45 minutes. You'll have shiny lustrous locks and if done regularly, your hair will grow back as well.
The Papaya Pack:
Take one ripe to overripe papaya, and mash up a slice. Mix in some cream and apply it all over your hair. Keep the mix on for about 45 minutes. You can add some castor oil to the mix if you like, or coconut milk too. If done regularly, it promises definite results in terms of hair growth.
Ripe Banana And Mayonnaise Pack:
Blend an overripe banana with mayonnaise till it reaches the perfect consistency and add a few drops of either coconut, olive or castor oil. Vitamin E oil works well to. Apply some liberally on your hair and scalp and wait for 45 minutes. This pack is great for dry or damaged hair; and if used regularly, it also helps hair to regrow.
