Long hair does look good and can add tremendously to lady’s appearance. Well cared hair is not only nice to look at, but also symbolizes health since skin and hair are always considered mirrors of a person’s health. The one problem that strikes almost anyone with long hair is dealing with tangles. The easy solution here is to use a conditioner but then chemical based conditioners tend to damage the hair severely. The answer to this catch 22 situation is to use natural hair conditioners that keep the hair tangle free and also contribute towards its success.
Some natural solutions to tangle free hair are detailed below:
- Banana honey pack – Churn two to three bananas with two to three tablespoons of honey and apply this pack to your hair. Remember that much like using a chemical conditioner, this home made one will also need to the applied to the length of the hair, though one can apply it on the scalp too. Leave the pack till it dries up completely. Wash it off with warm to cold water and let your hair dry naturally. This is a great remedy for keeping the hair silky and therefore tangle free too.
- Oil massages - Right from olive oil to mustard oil, all of it can be applied to the hair and helps keep it smooth and strong too. Mixing equal portions of olive oil with coconut oil and mustard oil and applying it on the scalp every second day will help you keep your growth nourished. Apply the oil and let it stay in your hair overnight. Next morning wash it off with a mild shampoo and let the hair dry naturally. Do not use a hairdryer since it will undo the good done by the oil massage.
- Henna - Applying a mix of henna, curd and herbal tea water to your hair every 25 to 35 days will also keep your hair well conditioned and smooth. In case you like the reddish ting that henna provides, leave the pack on for about 3 hours, if not wash it off after an hour and you will be able to enjoy smooth hair. Do not use shampoo to wash off the henna and after the hair is dry do apply some oil overnight and the next day you wash it off with shampoo. This will ensure that the henna conditioning is complete.
- Curd and Vitamin E - Another great pack to deal with hair that tangles quickly is curd and a tablet of vitamin E. Apply the pack for about 20 minutes before you go in for your shower and simply shampoo it off for nicely conditioned soft hair. This pack should be applied at least once a fortnight if not weekly.
All of these tips will help you keep your hair smooth and silky and also without exposing it to any chemicals that may damage them in the long run. In fact all of these natural remedies are great to strengthen the hair and make it grow faster too.
