GRANDMA WHISPERED: ‘LEAVE IT TO THE NATURE!’Gurpreet Kaur
Grandma knew it better. And she practised it too. A proper hair care routine was part of the olden days for all girls in the household, complete with DIY hair packs, natural conditioners, a ‘100-stroke’ brushing, and a thorough scalp massage with perfumed oil.
Oiling makes the roots strong and the tresses black and shiny, which was her golden rule for a healthy and glossy man. On some days a whipped egg white would be scrubbed onto the scalp; once a week the hair has to go through a wash with leftover rice water! Home remedies that added lustre, banished dandruff and helped the hair grow long and beautiful.
THE MAGIC OF NATURE
Nothing beats the magic of natural ingredients and products when it comes to beauty care. And hair owes a lot to herbs and oils for keeping it untouched by premature grey, dryness, split ends and thinning as the years pass by. All that curd, hibiscus leaves, black tea and amla powder have done a lot of good, indeed.
From oil massage to conditioning with natural products, your hair needs extra care and pampering to stay healthy, withstanding pollution and all the ill-effects of a modern lifestyle marked by stress and an imbalanced diet. And for those with limited time to spend on hair care the natural way, the best solution is Soilscents and its range of oils and conditions for oily and dry scalp.
