By Kripa Chowdhury

When it came to beauty, our grandmoms had their own techniques and tips that worked like wonder and still do; however, we often don't try them. Our extra trust on fad named beauty brands or salons is making our granny's beauty tips extinct. Our grandmoms would make their own skin and hair packs.

When it comes to granny's beauty tips, the perks are much more. All granny's beauty tips are natural, homemade, multi-purpose and composed of ingredients that are so easily available at home. Also, the granny's beauty tips are healthy when it comes to long-time use.

Can you deny the fact that your granny had a much luscious and lengthy hair at your age? So, what did she do that you are not doing? To simplify this thought, here is a list of easy-to-make two-ingredient hair packs that are sure to bring in an improving condition to your present hair type.

Listed are ten hair packs from granny's beauty tips, from which you can pick depending on your hair quality, problems and requirement. Take a look.


Egg And Curd

Combining egg and curd has two benefits: one, egg provides the hair with its required proteins and yogurt cleans the scalp thoroughly. However, which part of the egg to use in the making of this hair pack depends on your hair texture.


  • 1 egg (for normal hair)
  • 1 egg yolk (for dry hair)
  • 1 egg white (for oily hair)
  • 1/2 cup strained yogurt


  • Mix the curd and egg together until it is a smooth paste.
  • Apply from the scalp to your hair. Let it rest on your hair for half-an-hour and then, you can go for a hair wash.
  • To get rid of the egg smell, you can use some essential oil.

Milk And Honey

If your hair is very frizzy, dry and unmanageable, then milk and honey together is a remedy. Picked from granny's beauty tips, in this hair pack, milk supplies calcium, proteins, and vitamins to the hair, while honey is a natural humectant that provides the long-lasting hydrating effect.


  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 glass of raw milk


  • Mix the honey and milk in a glass and massage on hair, beginning from the roots to tips.
  • A 30-minute hair massage with milk and honey pack sounds good.
  • Follow this by using a hair shampoo with lukewarm water.

Banana And Almond Oil

Often our fragrant hair oils, shampoos, serums or conditioners fail to provide our hair with its required amount of nutrients. Here comes the role of Granny's special banana and almond oil homemade hair pack. Almond oil provides the hair with vitamin D and magnesium. Bananas act as a natural hair conditioner to the hair.


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 8-10 drops of almond oil


  • Mash the banana and mix it with the almond oil to a smooth paste. Apply the banana and almond oil hair pack on to your hair and massage.
  • Let it rest for 30 minutes, and then wash your hair with apple cider vinegar or beer.

Egg Yolk And Water

Banana And Honey

Itchiness on hair or scalp can happen when your hair is very dry or is not getting its right portion of moisturization. Sort the problem with banana and honey hair mask, where both of them moisturise the hair from the scalp and also soften it.


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1-2 tablespoons of honey


  • Mash the banana and add the honey. Mix it well into a smooth hair pack.
