Coconut oil mask
Indian women also take great care of their scalp, as the appearance of hair is determined by the health of the skin. Once or twice a week they massage their scalp with coconut oil, which has special properties. Coconut oil distributes a protective layer along the length of the hair, so it protects it from damage and splitting. Sometimes the scalp is also massaged with amalaki oil, which neutralises excess sebum.
Coconut oil is intensely moisturising. Apply to the hair and leave for at least 30 minutes to work its way into the roots and strands. Finally wash thoroughly and rinse hair with plenty of warm water. This oil is very dense, so it will be a little harder to remove from the hair. You can also rinse the hair with vinegar water.
Coconut oil and neem oil mask
Neem oil helps to remove dead skin and cells from the surface of the scalp, moisturise the hair and stimulate hair growth.
Drizzle neem oil into coconut oil, apply to scalp and leave for at least 30 minutes to work its way into the root and hair shaft. Finally wash thoroughly and rinse hair with plenty of warm water. You can also rinse the hair with vinegar water.
Olive oil and castor oil mask
For beautiful, shiny hair you can use a mask made from olive oil and castor oil, which is applied to the hair and massaged in gently. Leave for at least 30 minutes. Finally, wash thoroughly and rinse hair with plenty of warm water. The hair can also be rinsed with vinegar water.
Hair mask with neem
Neem powder is very good in combination with natural hair masks, fighting dandruff, hair loss and hair whitening. It can be added to other masks.
