Leave on for 20 mins. Wash off with a mild shampoo.

12. Hair Growth Stimulation Mask.
Grind black pepper and lemon seeds in equal amounts. Keep aside. Boil 3 tbsp dried rosemary in 2 cups water till the water reduces to less than half. Cool and strain. Dissolve the ground pepper + lemon seeds powder in this solution to make a fine paste. Add a cup of curd to it and mix well. Apply on your hair and scalp. Wash after 15 minutes with cold water or sooner if the pepper starts to sting.

Massage on hair thoroughly, paying careful attention to the ends. Wrap head with shower cap for half an hour. Wash off. Though hair that is already split at the ends needs to be trimmed off, this pack helps prevent further splitting of hair.

19. Curry Leaves Pack For Greying/Falling Hair.
11th

Soak 20 curry leaves overnight in a cup of water. Soak a stick of ratanjyot (or several flakes of the same) in ¼ cup pure coconut oil overnight. Next morning, discard the stick from the oil, which should have turned a deep red colour. Drain out the water from soaked curry leaves and grind it with this red coconut oil in a mixer to get a paste. Apply this paste to scalp and hair. Leave on for half an hour to one hour before washing off thoroughly. You may choose to rinse with lemon juice diluted in water or you can shampoo with a mild herbal shampoo.

20. Henna Conditioning Hair Pack.
14th

Soak pure herbal henna powder overnight in an iron container using freshly brewed and strained black tea instead of plain water. Add to this a tablespoon of olive/coconut/jojoba oil and the juice of half a lemon. Next morning, you have an option to mix in either ½ cup of fresh yoghurt or 1 beaten egg to it just before applying. You may apply this mixture covering all your hair and leave it on for a time duration between ½ hour to 6-7 hours, depending on your purpose. The longer you leave it on, the deeper will be the mehendi’s colouring effect. However, if you just need to condition your hair, half an hour is fine. Weekly conditioning with this pack works wonders on hair texture, growth, volume and shine.

deep condition with warm extra virgin olive oil, twice a week. or curd is my fav..put curd n leave it on for 1 hr then wash off. if you wash your hair with warm water.. finish off rinsing with a dash of cold water. it should help… :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

Hi,
I stumbled upon your site yesterday while browsing some tips on how to manage dull hair. I must say there are so many tips ans suggestions here that i need not go to any other site for help.
A very good article.
I want to try out so many hair packs listed above especially the mayo avocado one. Just one question. After application of hair pack do we wash it off with shampoo followed by conditioner or just plain water. Or are these packs applied after shampooing. Please advice.
