How to make Priyanka Chopra's DIY yoghurt hair mask

Ingredients: Yoghurt, honey and lemon.


  • Combine two tablespoons of yoghurt with one teaspoon of honey and a few drops of lemon juice.
  • Make a fine paste by mixing all the ingredients.
  • Apply the mixture to the roots and lengths and cover your hair with a shower cap.
  • Leave it for 30 minutes, and then wash it off with mild shampoo.

So, what makes this hair mask a good choice for people with dandruff/dry scalp?

Yoghurt contains active bacterial enzymes that effectively treat dandruff and itchy scalp and help protect the skin from drying out. It also moisturizes your hair and locks in the natural oils, giving it a natural shine [1].

Lemons contain citric acid, which prevents hair follicles from getting loose, thus preventing hair loss. When applied to the scalp, lemons unclog the pores around the follicles, thus preventing dandruff. Lemon controls oil production on the scalp, preventing it from getting shiny [2].

Honey is an excellent hair moisturizer as it has both emollient and humectant properties. Emollients smooth the hair follicles, restoring shine to dull hair. Humectants bond with water molecules, restoring moisture to dry strands. Honey can help restore your hair's natural lustre by moisturizing and locking in shine [3].

Combined, these three ingredients help rid your scalp of dandruff and promote healthy hair growth.

In general, use a hair mask once or twice a week.
