By Shatavisha Chakravorty

All of us dream of silky, smooth and frizz-free hair. However, in today's times, very few of us can actually claim to have that sort of an ideal hair. The reason for the same may be attributed to the stress and tension of modern-day living.

The pollution in our towns and cities only make matters worse for our hair. To deal with the damaged hair most of the times, what we do is, we go for expensive hair care treatments. These contain a lot of inorganic chemicals that do more harm than good. As a result, all of such experimentation cuts a hole in our pocket and permanently damages our hair.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and give your hair the treatment that it deserves.

1. The Yoghurt Mask

To avoid such a thing from happening, what you can do is to apply a second coat of shampoo and then rinse off the same with lukewarm water. Doing so will give you the silky smooth strands that you had always wanted without the unwanted smell.

2. The Honey Mask

Let it stand for 20 to 30 minutes, following which make sure you rinse it off with lukewarm water. To do away with the stickiness, you may want to shampoo your hair after this. In case you do shampoo, make sure that you do not give the conditioner a miss.

3. The Oatmeal Mask

For this, all you have to do is add chilled milk, almond oil and a tablespoon into a bowl and stir the same into a thick paste. Gently massage you scalp with this paste and let it stand for 10 to 15 minutes. After that, you can rinse off the same with lukewarm water.
