Hair Care Tips from Ancient India


Ancient India had its very own health and healing system known as Ayurveda. It made extensive use of Mustard Oil because of the natural curative properties of this oil. The ancient Vaids (physicians) knew all about the antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of mustard oil – thousands of years ago, and used it in their formulations.

Here is an ancient Ayurvedic hair and scalp treatment. Mix two parts of Mustard Oil and one part of coconut oil in a bowl. Warm it slightly – especially if you are doing this during the cold winter months. Now massage the mixture into your hair making sure it reaches all the way down to the scalp.

After around 10 minutes of this soothing massage, place a warm moist towel over your head, folding the towel into a loose turban. Leave the towel on for around 15 minutes. The mustard oil-coconut oil combination will enrich your hair making it lustrous and strong. At the same time, the heating action of the Mustard Oil and the warmth of the towel will open up the pores of your scalp and enable the Mustard Oil to penetrate deep into the scalp, nourishing the hair follicles.

Amazing hair care… in just a few minutes!
