What are hair packs?

There are many hair care products, with shampoos and conditioners making it to the beauty cabinet of several women. Hair pack should also be part of your beauty regime as it is an intensive conditioner. Dr Kochhar says this treatment is applied after shampooing to deeply nourish, hydrate and fortify the hair strands. Packed with proteins, vitamins and nourishing oils, hair packs are thick and creamy in consistency. They are made to be left on the hair for an extended duration, usually ranging from 15 to 30 minutes. Hair packs are ideal for those who have dry, damaged or chemically-treated hair. But if you want to show some love to your hair, you can use it too.

Hair packs for monsoon

Your tresses can look dull or less voluminous or frizzy when it rains for months. Try some hair packs for your hair problems. Here are some options:

1. Banana and coconut oil

To use coconut oil and banana as a hair pack, warm up the oil and mash a ripe banana in it. Apply it to your hair, focusing on the ends and not the roots. Leave it on for 30 minutes to an hour and rinse off with regular water. Use mild shampoo for thorough rinsing. The expert says that regular use of this hair pack during monsoon can help to reduce frizzy hair, increase shine and promote healthy hair growth.

2. Aloe vera gel, lemon and tea tree essential oil

Take freshly extracted aloe vera gel, one teaspoon lemon juice, and 3 to 4 drops of tea tree essential oil. This blend will deliver a refreshing dose of freshness, promote scalp health and stimulate hair growth. Aloe vera’s hydrating properties restore moisture and shine, while lemon’s natural acidity balances oiliness. Tea tree antimicrobial properties combat dandruff, leaving your tresses cleansed and refreshed.

3. Aloe vera gel

This is a single ingredient hair pack for which you just need to take freshly extracted aloe vera gel. Apply a good quantity to the hair while focusing on the scalp and ends. Let it stay on for 30 minutes and then rinse it off with water. You can use aloe vera gel hair packs once a week to make your hair smoother, shinier and stronger.
