Castor Oil for intense moisturisation
Castor oil is an elixir for anything related to hair. When it comes to treating dry and frizzy hair, a bottle of this oil here is your best friend. Made of nutrients such as ricinoleic acid, omega-6 and 9 fatty acids, vitamin E, and minerals, it acts as a natural conditioner and effectively controls frizz. Massage your scalp for 3 to 5 minutes, leave it on for two-three hours and wash as usual. Ta-da! Welcome, frizz free, shiny hair!
Reap the umpteen benefits of Coconut Oil
No hair care list is ever complete without this super oil that treats just about every hair concern, from dryness to dandruff. Rich in antibacterial and antifungal properties, coconut oil is an exceptional remedy for dry and frizzy hair. This oil easily penetrates deeper into the scalp than its other counterparts and keeps the scalp and hair healthy and intensely moisturised.
Onion juice for healthy, nourished locks
Rich in sulphur and amino acids, onion juice is an amazing recipe to achieve festive ready hair from the comfort of your home. Regular application of this miracle juice cuts frizz and dryness to give your hair a healthy shine. Simply use your fingers to gently massage this juice into your scalp using circular movements. Allow it to sit for about an hour. Rinse it off with a mild shampoo with a nice fragrance to get rid of the pungent smell of onions.
Kiss frizz goodbye with Tea Tree Oil
The most common hair care ingredient that has gained popularity in recent years is the tea tree oil. Enriched with antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal properties, this oil is your answer to combat winter dryness of the hair. Regular use of this wonder oil moisturises and soothes the scalp, thus reducing itchiness and making it less prone to flaking.
