Homemade Hair Packs for Dry Damaged Hair

hair packsHomemade Hair Packs for Dry, damaged, processed hair

Hi beauties!! Hope all of you had safe & nice Dewali. During the festive season most of us go through hectic schedule like going out with friends/relatives & have hardly any time to take care of hair & skin. Hence regular exposure to pollution, sunlight, chemicals, hot tools make our hair dry, damaged, brittle & lifeless. Regular shampoo & conditioners & occasional hair spa do help to an extent but there is nothing like home made herbal treatments. Today I am going to share with you two home made nourishing hair packs which if used religiously will not only make the hair soft, shiny, manageable but improve the hair texture.

I have rebonded hair & regular usage of these packs have not only saved my hair from post chemical processing effects but it has improved the hair type also.

Curd & Fenugreek Pack

This is one of the most effective home made hair packs I have used so far. To make this pack soak 50gms of fenugreek seeds in water for overnight. Grind the seeds next day with a little water & make a paste. Now add 4 table spoon curd (I use home made curd as it is free from any chemicals, you can also use Amul dahi) in the fenugreek paste, add honey & one tea spoon olive oil (you can skip oil in the pack by applying oil on your hair the previous night). Make a smooth paste & apply generously, every part of your hair & scalp must be covered with the pack. Wear a shower cap & do your daily chores. After 45 minutes wash your hair with water & rinse with a mild shampoo. You can apply conditioner if you want to. This pack will surely make your hair wonderful. Use this at least twice a week & if you are working like mine then once a week.

Egg & Banana Pack

This pack is actually a nourishing pack as it contains egg, banana & Vitamin E oil. To start with take 2 full ripe bananas & mash to a smooth paste. Take 2 eggs, beat them nicely & add one lemon juice (to avoid the egg odor). Mix all the ingredients together & now add two Vitamin E capsules (I use Evion capsules). Now apply the pack all over your hair & scalp. Wear a shower cap & this pack is a bit runny. Wait for 30 minutes & rinse hair followed by shampoo & conditioner (conditioner is optional). Your hair will be shiny, soft & healthy. Use it twice a week.

Please note the quantity of the ingredients may vary according to your hair length.

Hope these packs will help in restoring the health of your hair. Please do comment as it matters a lot for me.

I think I will try the methi-dahi pack….I don’t like eggy smells…I know you have suggested adding lemon to the pack..but if the non-egg pack is just as good, I would be super happy :-))

Debasree! I use the fenugreek & curd mask, it gives shine to the hair, but the fenugreek paste doesn’t come out easily when shampooing! :pain:

Debasree November 9, 2010 at 5:12 pm

Uzma,make the fenugreek paste must be very smooth.use lot of water while rinsing.You can also use fenugreek powder which is readily available in market

Vandana November 9, 2010 at 4:57 pm

I cannot use egg at home so I am going to try the 1st pack. I assume we can use 1tsp honey as olive oil. Thanks for the tips. I was trying to figure out some hair packs minus eggs and yours came in right on time !

Debasree November 9, 2010 at 5:09 pm

Vandana you can defy add honey as it makes hair shiny.You can also use beetroot/cucumber if you want to as these make hair healthy

The first thing people notice about me is my thick long black hair and my mom gives all the credit to fenugreek curd pack which she used to apply to my hair once a week until i finished 12th. I bet this also helps fight hairfall. :yes:
i used to soak the fenugreek seeds in curd early in the morning….grind in the evening, apply and wait for an hour, wash the hair with water( no shampoo), apply warm home made oil after hair dries. Shampoo next morning to find silky soft beautiful hair :-* :-* :-* . So far so good…but i hated the smell…. :pissedoff: its worth the long hair that dances on my hips… :-P bad smell pays off :-D

Meenal November 9, 2010 at 7:13 pm

Thank you so much!! I am def gonna try the 1st pack :-) :-)

Here’s a small tip for everyone who doesn’t use egg ‘coz of the smell. Add one tsp of coffee to the egg pack. It doesnt effect the effectiveness and hair won’t have any egg smell. I do this whenever I wanna use egg. :-)) :-))

after how many days of rebonding can we try the curd-fenugreek pack..? I got my hairs rebounded 15days back..can I use it now..?

Reply

sangeeta January 21, 2014 at 2:28 pm

U can start using hair packs to rebonded hairs after one month

Reply

Ramya April 5, 2014 at 5:50 pm

Girls, Just a small modification on the first one. this is an easier version of the same pack.
Make fine powder of fenugreek and store it. you can soak this powder in curd overnight (even 2-3 hours will do) and apply it from root to tip… Trust me it works. made my hair so smooth and shiny like never before.
The key is the combination of curd, fenugreek and thoroughly oiled hair (don’t forget to oil your hair overnight or at least before using this pack)
