Hair care in lockdown: The ongoing lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak has made it difficult to access the salon for your hair care. The quality of your hair may have deteriorated, a haircut may be overdue, you may have split ends and more hair loss than usual. If you come across all of these, don’t worry because you’ve landed in the right place. For proper hair care and restoring the health of your hair, you don’t need fancy shampoos or serums. Even the simplest home remedies can help rejuvenate your hair and restore its shine.

Home remedies for hair care that will not fail

Delhi-based dermatologist Dr. Kiran Lohia took to Instagram to share some effective hair care home remedies that actually work.

1. Wash your hair with apple cider vinegar and beer

Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid. Hair that looks dull, brittle or frizzy is likely to be more alkaline in nature with a high pH. The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar helps lower pH and restore healthy hair.

Beer, on the other hand, contains silica, a mineral that can help volumize hair and make it thicker. Washing your hair with apple cider vinegar and beer can help you achieve shinier, thicker hair.

2. Avocado, egg and coconut oil

If you have dry, frizzy hair, a hair mask made with avocado, egg, and coconut oil can help. Mix a little avocado with an egg and a little coconut oil. Apply it to your hair and wait for it to dry. Take a head bath after that. Regular use can help you achieve smoother, softer hair.

Avocado is a good source of biotin. Besides applying it topically to your hair, you can also eat avocado regularly. Biotin can help facilitate healthy hair growth. The fruit is also rich in potassium and magnesium. These minerals can seal the cuticle cells, which can help hair appear smoother and shinier and can prevent hair breakage. Both eggs and coconut oil are great for naturally conditioning your hair.
