We all are often exposed to extreme levels of air pollution and the harmful UV rays of the sun, both of which take a major toll on our hair. While we all know some or the other natural treatment for our tresses, our scalp health often goes unnoticed. For fixing dry and damaged tresses, it’s time to address our dry and flaky scalp first. And guess what? This time Priyanka Chopra has us covered.
In a recent Instagram post, she shared her personal natural hair care mask that has been passed on to her by her mum. While we all may sulk about the yucky smell, we know that if anyone can be trusted with natural masks, it’s our moms. So let’s try this mom-approved and Priyanka Chopra suggested hair mask that can dust off all your dry and flaky scalp woes.

A few years ago I shared some DIY beauty hacks with @voguemagazine. Seems like a good time to dust these off to try during quarantine. This is a recipe for a hair treatment that my mom taught me, and her mom taught her. Full Fat Yogurt, 1 tsp honey, 1 egg. Let it sit in your hair for 30 min and rinse with warm water. Disclaimer: while this works wonders (for me), it doesn’t smell the best. You may need to shampoo twice to remove all the yogurt, and then condition as usual.
Here’s the magic potion’s recipe:
How do these three ingredients actually help with scalp health?
Well if we need to know how does this magic concoction works, we must know what are the benefits of each of these ingredients. Let’s get into it:
Along with the cooling effect that this yummy treat has on your body, it also has phenomenal benefits for our scalp and complete hair health. While the protein in the yogurt helps with strengthening the tresses, the lactic acid in the yogurt helps in cleansing the scalp by unclogging hair follicles. While it clears away dead skin cells, it also promotes hair follicle growth.
While we are all aware of the taste of its sweet nectar, it also truly is the nectar of life for your hair. While this golden goodness helps with revitalising hair growth, conditioning and shine, it also has specific benefits for the scalp.
In a study done by the US National Library of Medicine, it was found that honey, when used in scalp treatments, helps to clean the scalp and alleviate conditions such as dandruff and dermatitis. It unclogs the buildup from dirt, oil, or even hair products that is often difficult to clean. This golden magic potion help in maintaining both scalp and hair health.
The good old egg yolk is rich in the vitamins that make the hair more resistant to damage. It is often considered as a superfood for the hair because of the vitamins packed together.
In a study done by the US National Library of Medicine, it was found that vitamins A and E, biotin, and folate are just some of the nutrients linked to hair growth and healthy hair.
So, ladies, it’s time to try this Priyanka Chopra recommended scalp mask recipe and get back your clean healthy scalp and tresses.
