Our hair needs as much care as other parts of our body. But despite trying out various remedies, if you are still facing hair issues, it is time you use a tried and tested method — a homemade hair oil. And if you have already been looking for such a hair oil, your search ends here. Here is some help from none other than actor Malaika Arora.
Malaika, who has been sharing secret tricks and tips for all on Instagram, recently shared this easy DIY hair oil that we thought might help you.
This is what she said: “Here’s an age old but still effective method to ‘maintain your mane’. Cold pressed coconut oil, olive oil and caster oil is like the holy trinity for your hair. Mix these oils in equal portions in a glass jar and add some methi seeds and curry leaves. While methi seeds are high in protein and nicotinic acid content, which are known to be beneficial for hair, curry leaves are a rich source of beta-carotene and proteins, which can reduce hair loss and increase hair growth. Let the mixture sit and infuse for a couple of days and voila! You have a homemade, pure hair oil ready to do some magic on your hair.”
