DIY hair mask
To condition your hair, make it thick and strong, make your own homemade hair mask from your kitchen. Mix ½ cup of aloe vera gel with 1 tablespoon of castor oil and apply to the scalp. Leave overnight and wash off the next day. You can also use the pulp of fresh hibiscus leaves crushed with fenugreek seeds, apply for 15-20 minutes and wash as usual.

To protect Hair, we must ensure the balance of tridoshas in the body, as any external or internal factors stimulate hair loss. Here are some hair care tips mentioned in Ayurvedic texts:
Never wash your hair with hot water; It is recommended to use cold water or water at normal temperature to ensure the health of Hair and strong roots.
Try to avoid using heat devices to dry or style your hair. It’s always best to let your hair dry naturally.
Never brush your hair when it is wet, as they are weakest during this time. Instead, wait until it dries and then use a wooden comb to detangle it as it reduces static electricity and distributes the oil secretion evenly.
Always condition your hair before bathing with Ayurvedic hair conditioner.
Keep your scalp clean and healthy by washing your hair with an anti-bacterial herbal infusion.
