Frizzy hair, dry scalp during the monsoon? This DIY Ayurvedic Hair Oil is All You Need

Hair issues are common during the monsoon season, from frizzy hair to dry scalp and split ends. If you are looking for a solution, you can always rely on a home remedy instead of trying a new hair product.

Renowned nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, who continues to share wellness tips on social media, recently advised a DIY hair oil that can be a cure for your hair problems. “When it rains, most of us will have one or worse, all conditions. The shampoo manufacturers even make special advertisements to entice us to buy their products. But relax mother nature has already fixed this for us,” she wrote on Instagram.

Diwekar suggested making a hair oil with vala (vetiver or khus roots), goonja (prayer pea) seeds and tulsi with its seeds. Each of these ingredients benefits the hair and is used in Ayurvedic remedies.

Vetiver, with its anti-bacterial properties, is known to rejuvenate hair. It improves blood circulation to hair follicles and also prevents scalp infections, according to nutmeds.com. The rosary pea, on the other hand, prevents hair loss, mentions easyayurveda.com. Tulsi also reduces hair loss by improving blood circulation, treats dandruff and itchy scalp, and adds moisture to hair, according to athayurdhamah.com.

Here’s how to make the oil:

*Take a wide-bottomed glass bottle.
* Put 2-3 vala roots, 1-2 tulsi broth, 1-2 goonja seeds and put them in the bottle.
* Pour coconut or mustard oil into the bottle and let it soak in the herbs for 48 hours.
* Leave the oil overnight and wash off. No conditioner needed.
*Use weather, not blower to dry.

Diwekar added that this DIY hair oil can also solve hair loss problems. So how about trying this?
