Step 2 - Peel a ripe banana, slice it into tiny pieces and drop them into the container.

Step 3 - Mix all the ingredients well and pour them into a blender to make a paste.

Step 4 - Apply the paste onto your strands and put on a shower cap to avoid dripping.

Step 5 - Leave it on for 5-10 minutes and rinse it off with lukewarm water.

Step 2 - Pour the yolks into a bowl and add a teaspoon of coconut oil.

Step 3 - While whisking, add half a cup of water and continue stirring.

Oranges are rich in vitamin C and bioflavonoids. This helps keep your hair from falling and helps it grow faster. At the same time, coconut milk offers deep nourishment to your hair as it contains vitamin E and healthy fats.

Step 1 - Empty one big cup of yoghurt into a bowl.

Step 2 - Add 1/4th cup of orange juice, 4 teaspoons of lemon juice and the white of the egg into the mix.

Step 3 - While blending all four ingredients, pour half a cup of coconut milk and continue stirring.

Step 4 - Apply the paste after you’ve shampooed on the ends and leave it on for a good 30 minutes.

Step 5 - Rinse well with cool water and mild shampoo after.

Step 2 - Cut the leaves into fine pieces and toss them into a utensil that contains water.

Step 3 - Boil the water for about 3-5 minutes and strain the liquid. Keep the liquid aside to cool down.

Step 5 - Leave the liquid to heat for about 5-6 minutes till you get the smell of a strong liquor.

Step 6 - Strain the liquid, and wait for it to cool down.

Step 7 - Then, mix both cooled liquids together and apply to your scalp.

Step 8 - Leave it to sit for 5-10 minutes and wash it off with warm water and mild shampoo.
