Let’s face it. All of us have experienced hair fall at some point and also tried various remedies — from hair packs to expensive treatments, but to no avail. While wholesome nutrition does play a role in treating hair fall, the issue sometimes stems from the roots. So it is important to make your hair strong from the roots. And one of the best ways to do so is by applying DIY hair fall specific oils that can do the trick for you.

Instead of just applying plain coconut oil, apply homemade infused oils that work like magic. Recently Ayurveda therapist and dietitian Dr Dixa Bhavsar shared a homemade oil recipe that you should try for lustrous and healthy hair.
