Hair

Enriching your hair colour :

For natural black hair, brew one strong cup of espresso and let cool completely. Pour on dry hair and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse.

For blond hair, brew some chamomile tea and let cool completely. Pour on dry hair and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse. For red hair, use lemon-balm tea.

If you have been contemplating adding a little 'gold' to your locks go ahead. Summer is the perfect time to do it. Keep the bleach and chemicals off of your scalp and have a professional do it. It is worth the money. Don't do the do-it yourself highlighter kits unless you really know what you are doing.

Using Mehendi :

  • While it is true that hair dyes contain chemicals that may damage your hair in the long run, that does mean that there is no hope for people with gray hair. Our very own Mehendi is a very good alternative. Further if used properly, it will not give your hair the traditional red colour. Here are a few pointers to help you colour gray hair the right way. First of all always use Mehendi of a good quality.

  • Soak mehendi overnight in an iron vessel and then use it the other day.

  • If you do not want to colour your hair and only want to use it as a conditioner, then oil your hair before applying it and leave it on only for an hour or so.

  • If you wish to give your hair a reddish tinge, add 'katha' to it. Or boil and add grated beet.

  • If you want a bronze effect, add coffee powder to mehendi. You can also add oil to the mehendi paste.

  • For jet black hair, soak Amla overnight and then add this to the mehendi paste and keep this overnight in an iron vessel. Apply it the next day.

  • Wrap a cloth around your shoulders and use gloves to apply mehendi in order to avoid soiling your clothes. Take care that mehendi does not touch your ears or face, or else the colour won't go for some days.

For best results, do not shampoo your hair after applying mehendi. Rinse your hair with plain water.

Here is a very good natural remedy for gray hair.

Ingredients :

250 Gms mehendi [old and of a good quality]

2 spoons Amla powder

2 spoon Shikakai powder

2 spoon Aritha powder

Method :

Mix all of these together. Dissolve half a cup of coffee powder in water and boil it. When it cools, mix all the ingredients and make a smooth paste. Keep this paste for 12 hours. Before applying to hair, add some curd to it. Instead of curd you can also use an egg. Hair should be preferably clean and specifically not oily before applying this paste or else the treatment won't work. Wash off the hair pack after 4 hours. Take this treatment once in every 15 days regularly to effectively darken gray hair and reduce their further appearance.
