Egg and Castor Oil: Whisk 1 egg until frothy and add in 3 tablespoons of castor oil to it. Mix again and apply swiftly to the hair. Allow it to sit for 1 and a half to 2 hours then wash it with water. While the castor oil will help tame troublesome tresses and increase their length, protein-rich eggs will strengthen it.
Egg, Olive Oil and Curd: In a shallow bowl, whisk together 1 egg, 3 tablespoons of chilled curd and 2 tablespoons of olive oil until they emulsify. Apply to your roots and lengths, leave it for an hour or two and wash off with water. Nourishing oil with creamy curd and nutritive egg will soften it greatly.
Banana, Milk and Egg: In a bowl, combine 1 overripe mashed banana with 4 tablespoons of warm milk and a whisked egg. Apply the mixture to your lengths and allow it to set for 45 minutes to an hour after which you can wash it off. Together these deeply nourishing ingredients condition the hair and tame frizz.
Curd, Honey and Lemon Juice: Mix together 4 tablespoons of curd with 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a glass bowl. Mix and apply thoroughly to the hair roots and lengths for an hour, then wash off. While curd and honey will moisturise the lengths, lemon will reduce grease and build up.
Curd and Aloe Vera: In a bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of aloe vera pulp with 3 tablespoons of curd. Massage into the hair lengths and roots, let it sit for 30 minutes and wash off with warm water. It will soften tresses and add shine.
