Hard water is a common problem in urban areas. Prolonged usage of hard water damages hair and skin.
So, here I am sharing a few easy tips to protect your hair from hard water.
How To Make HARD Water SOFT :
Alum or Aluminium sulfate (also known as Fitkari in Indian subcontinent) is easily available in Indian grocery stores either in solid or powder form.
Use one tea spoon of Alum for filtering 5 liters of water.
Lemon Rinse :
Lemon rinse should be done after shampoo once in 10-15 days. Overdoing is bad because lemon can turn hair a bit dry.
Apple Cider Vinegar can also be used in place of lemon.
One table spoon of ACV is enough for 1 large mug.
Apply Deep Conditioning Pack once a week :
Take one ripe banana and mash it throughly so there are no lumps. Add half a cup of full fat,unflavoured yogurt. Homemade yogurt is the best.
Also add one table spoon of Coconut/Olive/Almond oil as per your preference.
Mix everything together to make a smooth lump free paste. Apply it from scalp to hair tips.
This pack should be kept for 2 hours and washed using a shampoo.
Being totally natural, it can be used on the scalp and has no side effects,do it once a week.
