Quick Fixes for Your Hair

By Shahnaz Husain

For very dry, rough, bushy hair

Mix some water with creamy hair conditioner and put it in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on the hair. Then comb the hair, so that it spreads through the hair.

 Mix one egg to one tablespoon mayonnaise and one teaspoon olive oil. Apply the paste on the hair. Leave on for half an hour and wash the hair.

 If you use a hair dryer, use a big round brush. Divide the hair into sections. Pin them up and dry one section at a time. Blow in a downward direction. Using the dryer over the hair can cause it to become more rough and thick.

For rebellious unmanageable hair

Take 2 drops of a light vegetable oil, like sunflower oil. Put it on your palms and rub the palms lightly together, so that the oil spreads over both palms. Smooth the palms over the hair. Or, take the ends of the hair in your palms and scrunch them. Leave the oil on.

Give it a quick conditioning treatment before your shampoo. Mix one teaspoon each of vinegar and pure glycerin with one egg.  Beat them together well. Massage the mixture into the scalp. Then wrap the hair in a hot towel for twenty minutes, before washing the hair. Your hair will have more body and look shiny and manageable.

Oily hair that limps along

Boil used tea leaves again in enough water. After boiling, you should have about 4 cups of the tea-water.  Cool and strain the liquid. Add the juice of a lemon to it and use it as a last rinse.

A quick emergency treatment is to put a little eau de cologne on your brush and brush your hair. It absorbs oil and leaves your hair cleaner and fragrant.

 Frustrated with dandruff flakes

Mix one teaspoon rose water with 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar. Apply on the scalp at night using cotton wool. Leave on overnight.

Once a week, heat olive oil and apply on the hair at night. Leave on overnight. Next day, apply the juice of a lemon and wash the hair after 15 minutes.   

Quick camouflage of grey hair


Apply herbal Hair Mascara to conceal strands of gray hair quite effectively and also add glamour to the hair. Hair mascaras are temporary methods of colouring the hair. They assure safety from damage to the hair.
