Major hair problems more like nightmares are
  • Dandruff
  • Hair fall
  • Frizzy hair
  • Split ends
  • Dry/Rough hair
So let's discuss each problem in a detailed way, and get rid of it in a lazy crazy.

Dandruff ...
As our body skin forms the dead skin layer, our scalp also sheds the dead cell by removing old skin cells. In some cases/condition, this shedding is high and it is considered as dandruff and it is the common scalp disorder affecting millions of people :(

Reasons for dandruff!!

  • An underlying health concern like psoriasis
  • Infestation of head lice
  • Fungal infections of the scalp
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Using Hair products with chemicals
  • Nutrition deficiency
  • Dry scalp
  • Yeast sensitivity
  • Oily skin
  • Unhygienic scalp
Problems of Dandruff.
*Irritated/Itchy scalp: Sometimes you may also think to go bald instead of scratching your head
* White scaly particles everywhere: Wearing a black dress is not even an option with those particles all over the dress. it's even impossible to wear other dark colors .. :(
Aren't those are enough to ruin us .. O.O
So here are easy, homemade lazy crazy remedies to fight dandruff :)

Neem Leaves
Ages old best remedies to fight of infection and can cure many ailments ...Consider this as a magical herb for your dandruff monster.
Neem leaf can be used to treat different problems of hair like head lice, dandruff, excessive hair fall and to improve hair growth. Bingo
So all you need to do is

** This can also help to reduce pimples and other types of insect bites too.
Just boil Neem leaves in water, cool and strain it and wash your face with it to get rid of pimples
and add few neem leaves to your hot bathing water.

Fenugreek seeds
This is not rocket science .. This one is simply from our grand mother's beauty secret box... and this is easily available in everyone's house or local shops majorly known as "methi".
The fenugreek seeds are rich in minerals like potassium, sodium, magnesium. These fenugreek seeds are used to solve the many hair problems like dandruff, itchy scalp, damaged and dull hair etc.
**Regular use of fenugreek seeds on hair helps in delaying the process of graying hair. The hair becomes thicker and shinier with methi. Fenugreek seeds are also helpful in preventing split ends of the hair.
The anti-fungal properties of fenugreek are found to be extremely effective in fighting dandruff caused by yeast or fungal infection on the scalp. The yeast-like fungus that attaches itself to the hair follicles restricts hair growth and blocks the pores of the hair follicles. Fenugreek seeds help in getting rid of this fungal infection and in promoting healthy hair growth.

So for a fenugreek hair mask, all you have to do is.

  • now tie your hair into a bun and let the mask dry.
  • rinse off with shampoo and hot water comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb while rinsing to remove the mask easily.
*If you have hibiscus leaves you can also add them to the paste ..this promotes hair growth and prevents hair fall ..

Curd ...
Curd rich in vitamin B5 and proteins is beneficial for hair. The protein content existing in curd helps fortify and moisturize hair besides repressing the unrelenting, annoying dandruff. Moreover, rich creamy curd consisting of antibacterial agents, reduce irritation and itchiness of the scalp providing ample relief.

* Therefore, spread a thick layer of whipped curd, massaging from the hair follicles to the end. Allow the curd to rest for an hour before cleansing with a mild shampoo and plenty of lukewarm water. This helps combats dandruff by clearing and tightening the scalp pores.
