Husain, known for her herbal beauty products, also recommends a rinse of marigold flowers to improve hair texture. “Add a handful of fresh or dried marigold flowers to three cups of hot water. Allow it to stand for an hour. Strain and cool the water and use as a final rinse. It benefits oily hair, adding shine to it,” she said.
“Also, one can soak methi seeds overnight in water. Strain the water next morning and use it to rinse the hair to tackle all kinds of hair trouble,” she added. Other homemade remedies to bring back the shine to dull and lifeless hair include vinegar, banana and avocado oil. “Wash scalp with vinegar or mash a banana and add avocado oil and apply it on hair as a mask and rinse hair after an hour. It makes your hair smooth and shining,” said Mittal.
