When I was a little girl, my grandmother oiled my hair every night. She said it was like a lubricant for your hair. Later, as I grew older, she made hair masks and applied them every Sunday. I called it the “egg-hair-day.” Now, I realise how important these homemade hair masks were. They gave my hair the right amount of nutrients and nourished them well. As a result, my tresses looked lustrous. And who doesn’t want that?
Here are 8 hair masks recipes you can try for healthy tresses.

Methi Magic: Soak half a cup of fenugreek seeds overnight. Next day, make a fine paste and apply it from root to tip. Leave it for 30 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water to get a smooth and shiny look.
