Using so many hair products and exposure to environmental problems can put your hair through a lot. Plus, the added weather changes make matters worse. This is the reason why hair needs extra care. From itchy scalp to roughness to dry hair, there are common problems that you would have to go through. One way to resolve the issue is using natural products such as a herbal shampoo. Women from the older generation also often talk about how different types of herbal shampoos have worked their magic to give women the most gorgeous locks. So, time for you to try it too, right?

4 DIY herbal shampoos for hair

From your scalp to your hair health, here are 4 types of herbal shampoos that can help you get rid of many of your hair problems.

1. Basil leaves water and Aloe Vera gel

Boil a few neem leaves in a cup of water. Now, add 10-15 basil leaves in a blender and 2-3 tablespoons of aloe vera gel. Prepare a thick mixture and add some prepared neem water to it. Mix any good herbal shampoo in it and apply it to your hair. Leave it on your hair for 10-15 minutes and then wash it thoroughly.

2. Shikakai and Dry Indian gooseberry

Mix some shikakai and black dry Indian gooseberry or amla in an iron vessel. Soak them for 2-3 days. Now, keep it under the sun for some time during the day. After this, crush them with your hands and squeeze them or filter them separately. Wash your hair with the prepared liquid. You can also add a herbal shampoo to it.

3. Buttermilk and Multali Mitti

Put two tablespoons of multani mitti in a vessel and add some buttermilk as per your requirement. Apply this mixture to your hair. Wash the hair once the mask dries out completely. It helps keep the hair soft in changing seasons, improves the texture of the hair, and helps the hair grow.

4. Reetha, Bhringraj and Fenugreek Powder

Take some Amla, Reetha, Bhringraj, and fenugreek powder in a vessel and mix them properly. Add some water as required and make a thick paste. Now, add some water to it. Apply the mixture to your hair and leave it on for 15 minutes. You can wash your hair as much as you want or even fill it in a bottle and keep it for a long time.

While these may work wonders for your hair, it is always a good idea to consult your doctor to make sure that you are not suffering from an underlying hair problem.

Benefits of using herbal shampoo for hair

From conditioning your hair naturally to removing dandruff, here are the benefits of using herbal shampoo for hair:

1. Moisturises your hair

If you tired of your dry and lifeless hair, give them love and nourishment by using a herbal shampoo. While the benefits may depend on the ingredients used in a herbal shampoo, most of these ingredients contain properties that make your follicles healthy and help you get rid of the frizz. Using a herbal shampoo 2-3 times a week can give life to your frizzy and dry hair.

2. Strengthens the hair

While we tend to lose up to 100 hair strands a day, some people lose more than that. This can be concerning. Sometimes the fault is in the shampoo you’re using, so you might want to switch to an herbal shampoo. Regular use of herbal shampoo protects your hair from the negative effects of chemicals and solves several problems that may be causing hair fall by strengthening your hair follicles.
