To maintain the beauty women in India are using modern cosmetics, products of aesthetic medicine, and natural gifts. In addition, the secrets of Indian women can be used by other women all around the world.
Indian ladies certainly have unusual beauty and charm: beautiful eyes, curved eyelashes, soft, smooth skin and long, healthy hair. Natural beauty recipes are based on Indian Ayurvedic medicine and ancient traditions.
India – a place of contrasts. There is almost no middle class, people either live in slums or in the palaces. The vast majority of the population is unable to afford expensive cosmetic brands. Therefore, in order to take care of skin and hair Indian women use sophisticated creams and masks made from fruits, berries and spices. Indian women use natural cosmetics recipes for years, based on organic ingredients and pass this habit to their daughters.
According to Indian tradition, a woman’s hair is considered to be her crowning glory. Women have historically been identified with long, thick luscious locks that cascade down to their waist. Hair is associated with strength and beauty.
NOTE: The old tradition among Indian women is hair oiling.
Unlike in the West where we condition our hair post shampooing it, in India, oiling your hair and scalp always precedes washing it. Many people naturally associate the application of oil with ‘being greasy.’ Nothing could be more untrue. Hair treatments using oil provide deep conditioning and help cleanse micro dust particles that cause dandruff, irritation, infections and even certain types of alopecia or hair loss. Also, applying oil to the scalp promotes relaxation, a process which in itself is extremely important for think, healthy hair.
Why Coconut Oil is so Beneficial for Hair?
Most Indians use coconut oil as it has a cooling effect on the head. Releasing heat is essential for maintaining the beauty of the hair as it weakens the roots. There are many commercial varieties of coconut oil available in the market but it is a good idea to identify a pure organic product as chemicals and preservatives invariably alter the cooling quality of coconut oil.
Using coconut oil regularly not only enhances the beauty of your hair, but also keeps them ultra- soft and smooth. There are different ways to apply coconut oil for healthy skin and hair (learn more about coconut oil benefits in a special article). It also constantly repairs damage and protects hair from the polluted environment. The magical Laurites gives your hair everything it needs. It binds the hair proteins and holds them giving you stronger, shinier and healthier hair. It also helps reduce frizz and repairs split ends faster and works wonders for your hair.
How to Apply Coconut Oil on Hair?
The process is not too difficult. Massage a small amount of coconut oil into your scalp. Comb the oil out to the ends of the hair. You can apply a turban made from a hot towel to help the oil penetrate into your scalp and individual hair shafts. Leave the oil in for at least an hour or up to overnight. Wash your hair out, making sure that your scalp ‘squeaks’ clean to ensure that all the oil has been removed. Then sit back and admire your beautifully conditioned, shiny locks that are vibrant with moisture and health!
Wash your Hair with Milk
This is the easiest secret that everyone can follow. Wash your hair with milk, it’s not smelly at all. Washing hair with milk will hydrate your scalp, moisturize your hair and will stimulate hair growth too. Take one cup of milk and apply it into roots and tip of hair.
