Highlighting the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and habits, Madhuri stressed the need to drink an adequate amount of water. She went on to suggest a few hair supplements enriched with Omega-3, fish oil, or biotin, which can be consumed but only after consulting an expert.
She further mentioned that a regular trim helps to maintain the health of one’s hair, and also suggested air-drying the hair, instead of using curling irons or dryers whenever possible. “If you use a towel to dry your hair, don’t rub it against your hair to avoid breakage. Alternatively, you can use micro-fibre hair wraps,” she said. The actor also said how one should avoid hot water for washing their hair, adding “only shampoo your scalp, the conditioner is for the tips and length of the hair”. “Always brush gently, and if you brush your hair when it is wet then brush it with a wide-tooth comb,” she said.
That’s not all, she also shared the hair mask and oil she uses.
- ½ cup – Coconut oil
- 15-20 – Curry leaves
- 1 tsp – Methi seeds
- 1 – Small onion (finely chopped)
Put all the ingredients in a thick pan on low-medium heat and boil. Let it cool down. Strain and apply immediately or store it in a bottle and use within two days.
Hair mask (to soften the hair)
- 1 – Chopped banana
- 2 tbsp – Yoghurt
- 1 tsp – Honey
Mash the banana and add yoghurt and honey to it. Make a smooth paste and apply it to each section and then wear a shower cap.
Wash it with shampoo after 30-40 minutes. Avoid a conditioner after using this hair mask, she suggested.
“You can also eat this hair mask, it’s healthy for your body too,” she laughed.
