After Holi haircare- Easy oil recipe

With Holi just a few days away, we all are super excited about playing with colors and enjoying the festival.

But we can’t deny the mess that is created after the fun. From skin to hair, everything is gone for a toss with all the colors that were rubbed on you.

So if you want to indulge in the burst of colors but worry about the damage to your tresses, dont panic, as I am going to share an easy hair oil recipe to help you have soft and shiny hair after the festival.

Let’s begin with the ingredients;

Onion: Sulpher content in onion helps in nourishing the hair and prevent hair loss.

Curry leaves: It’s loaded with properties to boost hair growth and keep it healthy, strong and moisturized.

Fenugreek/Meethi Seeds: High in protein, it’s beneficial against hair fall and dandruff and also in treating scalp issues like dryness, itchiness and hair thinning.

Coconut oil: It acts as a shield against environmental damage caused to the hair and also prevents breakage.

Proportion for the oil:

1 small onion made into a paste. 15 to 20 curry leaves. 1 tsp Fenugreek seeds and half a cup coconut oil.

How to Prepare:

Take all these ingredients and put it in a pan.

Bring it to boil.

Once boiled, let it cool down.

Now strain it in a bottle or a jar.

Let this sit for 2 days before you use it.

It’s that simple.

With the right ingredients which are easily available at home, we can take good care of out tresses. Use this oil regularly and you will love the shine and softness in your hair.

If you try this at home, don’t forget to let me know your experience. And if you have your own recipe or an ingredient which has worked well for your hair, do share it in the comment below and let me know.

Happy Holi!
