If you are looking at protecting your hair from dandruff and adding to its thickness, then a hair rinse made from natural ingredients can go a long way. It might come as a surprise to many of you, but some simple home remedies for hair is all you need to keep your tresses healthy and steer clear of common problems like hair fall, dandruff, and dullness.
Using natural ingredients is also useful in preparing a hair rinse that is specifically suited for your needs. So, if you’ve been dealing with hair loss, greying and dandruff, then worry not as we have a hair rinse that you can prepare using only two ingredients—sabudana and rosemary.
Sabudana contains amino acids and carotenoids that aid in controlling hair fall, averting premature greying and balding. Its antifungal and antimicrobial properties help soothe hair roots or follicles, repairing damaged scalp and removing dandruff effectively.
Rosemary contains ursolic acid, which increases scalp circulation, ensuring that oxygen and nutrients reach the hair follicles. This promotes hair growth. The high antioxidant content wards off free radicals, reducing greying and hair thinning. Rosemary also contains antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties which help fight dandruff and scalp irritation.
So, ready to revitalize your hair?
Here’s what you will need
2 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves or 1 tbsp dried rosemary leaves
2 cups water
1 cup sabudana starch
1 tablespoon almond oil
Step 1: Bring the water to a boil and then add rosemary leaves.
Step 2: Reduce the heat, cover the lid and let it simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
Step 3: Turn off the heat and let the water cool down. You will see an oil film on the surface. Now, strain out the rosemary and retain the water.
Step 4: Add sabudana starch and almond oil to the rosemary oil and stir to combine.
Now, your hair rinse is ready and this is how you can use it
Slowly pour the rinse over your hair and massage your scalp and hair. Let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
You could also use an applicator bottle to target specific areas and remember that this hair rinse is good for 1 to 2 weeks if stored in the fridge. In case the hair rinse becomes solid in texture, just add a few drops of hot water to bring back its original consistency.
Use this hair rinse at least once or twice a week. You will see the results only after regular use! Wait no more, and make this sabudana starch and rosemary hair rinse an integral part of your hair care routine.
