4. Lemon juice

Caution: This tip is only for those who are dealing with an oily scalp. If even after a hair wash, your tresses look lifeless and dull, you are in desperate need of lemon in your shampoo. An oily scalp means high production of sebum. This doesn’t just affect the texture of your hair, but will also block the pores in your scalp and can lead to hair fall. Lemon juice will help in clearing this excess sebum and make your scalp breathable and also stimulate hair growth.

5. Honey

Some of you also complain a lot about frizzy and dry scalp, especially during the winter season, or at the time of a season switch. That’s when you need honey to rescue your tresses. Honey has antibacterial properties, which keeps the moisture of your hair intact, due to which you experience a silky smooth texture, without adding any serum or spray.

6. Amla juice

If split ends and hair fall is troubling you left, right, and centre, you must go for amla juice. Amla juice is a natural stimulant that rejuvenates your scalp and helps in the growth of dead or damaged hair follicles. Another important point that you should know is that amla strengthens your hair and makes them stronger than ever.

Premature graying of hair is one of the biggest concerns we millennials are facing nowadays. We know it’s cool for some of you to show off your greys but not all of us are on the same page. Hence, shikakai! Shikakai helps in preventing grey hair and presses pause to hair fall as well. And if you are embarrassed about dandruff issues, you must add shikakai to your shampoo bottle right away.

Just take the powder, soak it in water overnight, strain it the next day, and pour it in a shampoo bottle. That’s it!
