Taking care of our health is very necessary and we take several steps to ensure our bodies are fit and healthy. From exercising to choosing to eat clean and nutritious food, we put in a lot of effort to maintain a healthy body. But along with taking care of our body we also need to focus on maintaining our skin and hair too. The monsoon season is known to cause all sorts of hair-related infections from dandruff to hair fall and itchy scalp issues. While there are several shampoos and conditioners that claim to resolve these hair problems, none can come close to an all-natural haircare solution.
Hair problems are common during the monsoon season, from frizzy dry hair to itchy scalp and split ends. If you are looking for a solution, you can always trust on a homemade remedy instead of trying a new hair product.
Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, who keeps sharing her wellness tips on social media, recently advised a DIY ayurvedic hair oil that can be a great remedy for all your hair problems. “Come rains, most of us will have one or worse, all of the conditions. Shampoo companies even make special ads to lure us into buying their products. But chill, mother nature has already sorted this stuff out for us,” she wrote on Instagram.
She suggested making a hair oil with vala (vetiver or khus roots), goonja seeds (rosary pea) and tulsi with its seeds. Each of these ingredients benefits the hair and is used in Ayurvedic remedies.
Rujuta captioned the post, “Frizzy hair? Split ends? Dry scalp? A simple DIY for hair health.” Vetiver, with its anti-bacterial properties, is known to rejuvenate the hair. It improves blood circulation in the hair follicles and also prevents scalp infections. Rosary pea, on the other hand, prevents hair fall, tulsi also reduces hair fall by improving blood circulation, treats dandruff and itchy scalp and adds moisture to the hair.
The rainy season is prone to cause dryness and itchy scalp. Try this simple all-natural home remedy.
Rujuta also shared the method of making the oil mix to use on your frizzy hair and itchy scalp during monsoon. Here’s how to make the oil:
- Take a glass bottle with a broad bottom.
- Put 2-3 vala roots, 1-2 tulsi stocks, 1-2 goonja seeds, and put them in the bottle.
- Pour coconut or mustard oil into the bottle and leave it to soak in the herbs for 48 hours.
- Leave the oil on overnight and wash. No need for a conditioner.
- Use the weather and not the blower to dry hair.
