6 Tried & Tested DIY Hair Remedies That Are Breaking The Internet RN

My grandma used to always tell me that if she wanted to predict the weather, she simply looked at her hair. Confused? Allow me to explain. Frizz and untamed tangles come with dry weather, while waves and curls come with salty wetness. Summer heat on the other hand causes dandruff and split ends, and the cold months make your hair lifeless and brittle. She’d also pull out her ‘magic mix’ of kitchen ingredients to tame my hair at the start of each season.

But do they really work is one doubtful question we always ask ourselves. Hence here we are serving you those tried and tested age-old whipped up recipes approved by grandmas a.k.a. nani ke nuske that you can try from the comfort of your homes.

Mind-Blowing Haircare Finds That Can Be Whipped Up In Your Kitchen


For Long Luscious Locks

Sandalwood, like turmeric, is regarded as an all-purpose remedy in Ayurveda. Sandalwood stimulates the roots, making them stronger and aiding in hair growth, thanks to its astringent characteristics that help reduce excess sebum and oil production.

You’ll Need:

  • 4 tablespoons sandalwood
  • 1 small cup of soy milk


In a bowl, mix sandalwood powder with soy milk (powered with healing proteins and hydrating agents) to make a paste. Use this as a mask every week for strengthening your hair and promoting hair growth.

To Prevent Hair Fall

Sticking to the tradition of coconut oil champi, we’ve added some incredibly efficient hair-loving ingredients to the mix. Fenugreek seeds, also known as methi, are high in protein and have been shown to help with hair loss. Curry leaves, on the other hand, are high in antioxidants and proteins, both of which promote hair development.

You’ll Need:

  • Coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons fenugreek seeds
  • A small handful of fresh curry leaves


Blend both of these ingredients in a blender until smooth, then soak in warm coconut oil and keep in a bottle for weekly oil massages. You’re sorted with your weekly champis.

Get Rid Of Dandruff With Coffee

Who wouldn’t want to smell like a fresh cup of coffee all day? This antioxidant’s healing and moisturising properties help stimulate your scalp for enhanced blood circulation.

You’ll Need:

  • Grounded coffee
  • Coconut oil
  • Yoghurt (optional)


All you need is freshly ground coffee beans mixed with a binding agent (like coconut oil or yoghurt). Use this mixture to scrub away excess sebum and dandruff to reveal a healthy, clear, and functioning scalp.

To Tame Unruly Hair

All that sebum or mineral build-up on your scalp could be one of the key causes of stubborn strands or frizz. Pollution, climate change, hard water, and other issues all play a role. With this purifying soak, you may detox your hair and cleanse your scalp.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 large lemon
  • A few drops of rosemary oil
  • A bowl of lukewarm water


In a large mixing bowl, squeeze out a full lemon. After that, add a few drops of rosemary oil and some lukewarm water. Allow your hair to soak into the bowl and massage your scalp with your fingertips until it is moist and has absorbed oil.

Bring in monsoon with lustrous, shiny, strong hair with a dramatic hair flip! So what are you waiting for? Go try it right now.
