Who doesn’t want luscious, long, shiny hair? With winter on our heads (quite literally), hair care becomes all the more difficult, because it’s impossible to have a bath with cold water–and we all know how bad hot water is for hair.
So, we bring you a solution that will cost you peanuts, but bring you immense beauty relief.
You have probably visited the salon more frequently this season, tried all your expensive shampoos, lotions, potions and what not. But did you know that a simple and highly effective home remedy can save you from the annoying winter hair fall.
Guava is the fruit of the season; its rich levels of vitamin C can do wonders for our health. But the fact that its leaves can kick-start the production of healthy hair growth–that is what makes this fruit a miraculous saviour for us!
Guava leaves are an ancient beauty remedy, because they are packed with vitamin B complex, which can prevent hair loss and promote hair growth at the same time.
So, here’s a simple recipe to protect your hair this season:
Boil some guava leaves in a pot of water, strain out the leaves. Let the solution cool down. Massage this potion into your dry scalp. Wash it off after 10-15 minutes with lukewarm water, as piping-hot water tends to make the scalp very dry.
Use this remedy twice a week and you are sure to see fabulous results. The leaves are an absolutely natural ingredient, free of all possible chemicals, and thus absolutely harmless.
You can also add guava leaves to your winter tea routine. Add some washed leaves to a cup of boiled water and a tea spoon of honey. This guava-leaf tea can also help hair growth; regular use can boost immunity levels, which in turn helps prevent a number of winter-related illnesses.
