Suffer from grey hair?

We provide some home remedies to nourish your hair

Gooseberry is the best cure for hair fall and grey hair. Give your scalp a regular gooseberry paste massage to reverse the process of greying.

Soak 10 to 12 dried gooseberries in half a cup of water overnight and strain it the next day. Use this as a hair conditioner after your head bath. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse your hair with clean, warm water. This will make your hair smooth and shiny and also prevent premature greying.

A 15-minute, coconut oil and lemon massage is known to work wonders.

Soak about 10 to 12 rithas and three to four shikakai pods overnight in a pint of water. Boil for a few minutes the next day and strain. Use this liquid as a normal shampoo on your hair.

Apply a frothy mixture of castor oil and lemon juice evenly over your scalp and bathe after an hour with the shikakai and ritha shampoo mentioned above to reduce grey hair.

Take one cup of strong black tea mixed with a tablespoon of salt. Strain the tea once it's cool and massage on the roots of your hair. Leave it on for an hour and then rinse with cold water. Do not shampoo your hair after this.
