Hair Masks For Dry Hair

Beat two eggs with a cup of milk or curd; add in a spoon of honey and apply all over your hair and scalp. Egg has a number of nutrients like omega 3 fatty acids, proteins and also moisturises your hair. Milk or curd again are excellent moisturisers and contain proteins which give strength your hair. Honey imparts shine and lustre and to some extent it masks and neutralises the smell of egg. Let the mask remain for 15 min and rinse with luke warm water, make sure it doesn’t dry off as drying leads to breaking of hair. For dry hair always keep in mind you don’t use hot water for washing as it will further make your hair even more dry.

Other agents that help with dandruff and dry scalp are coconut oil (moisturiser), apple cider vinegar (reduces fungal growth on scalp), and lemon juice (inhibits yeast growth). Simply rubbing your scalp with lemon-peel for 5-10minutes before rinsing is also beneficial. Applying cream or even coconut cream on your scalp reduces dandruff.
