  1. I can definetely vouch for ACV rinse. I have stored ACV mixture(1:8) in a spray bottle. I spritz it on freshly washed hair as a leave-in treatment. It adds incredible shine to my dry wavy hair 🙂

  2. Avanti..i have used honey, lemon, neem and ACV.. lov lemon the most. easiest to make and works well on my oily scalp and normal to dry hair..
    neem is great too bt smells horribly bad once u boil it in water. i usually try to use them fresh..dats y lemon and honey r the best options. 🙂
    shelf lif……umm…the boiled ones i think can be stored for abt 4…5 days in a refrigerator.

  3. hey somreeta,
    at the cost of sounding really ignorant n foolish,i have a question:
    how exactly is one supposed to use a hair rinse,i mean at what point,
    i)after shampooing,while hair is still wet
    ii)after shampooing,and towel drying
    iii)after shampooing+conditioning
    plz help

    1. hi Neha,…..dont feel like dat…its perfectly ok… i should have mentioned it in the article only. here’s the ans- its 1.
      precisely, apply shampoo. rinse with plain water. rinse with the ‘hair rinse’ of ur choice. wait for a few seconds. towel dry as usual. 🙂

  4. This is super helpful Somreeta, thanks for sharing! This is slightly funny but I learnt a trick recently from a friend, put a few drops of the yellow L*sterine mouthwash on a cotton pad and apply it to your scalp, keep it for a few mins and shampoo condition as usual. It really helps in controlling dandruff and keeping them at bay.

  5. I so look forward to your ‘homemade- recipes’! I have used lemon, honey, vinegar (not the ACV one, dont get it in Bhopal) even the Neem one..coz I boil neem leaves for my kiddo sometimes..use the remaining one 🙂 but the other ones are worth giving a try.. esp chamomile n sage. Keep Posting!
