Hair oil with Coconut Milk

Recipe for Hair oil with Coconut Milk

Today I am giving you a very special hair oil recipe. It was widely used to help hair growth in Kerala. This hair oil with coconut milk is having a very tactical kind of preparation. In early times this was prepared by specially trained persons who make all kind of Ayurvedic preparations. In my home grand mother used to prepare hair oil with coconut milk and it was the oil we applied on hair. At that time my hair was also lustrous and healthy. Now as the time passing very fast even I cannot find a situation to prepare this hair oil with coconut milk.

The first challenge in preparing this hair oil is finding the best type of coconut. The coconut we select should be fully ripe and dried. In this condition the water content in the coconut will be almost removed. And we can get more oil from that. Why we select the ripe coconut is that we can keep this prepared hair oil for long time. This hair oil with coconut milk helps hair to grow well and can avoid unnecessary hair loss. Definitely we can forget about the problem of dandruff etc.

How to prepare hair oil with coconut milk

Coconut oil- 1 cup
Coconut milk- 1 cup
Brahmi powder- 5tsp.
Aloe vera- 2tsp.
Tulsi leaf paste- 1tsp.

You know how to prepare coconut milk. Grate coconut and using a mixer/grinder crush it. Then squeeze the milk. Brahmi powder you can buy. Use fresh aloe vera. Squeeze the inner crux or you can use with the skin but cut into small pieces. If you have tulsi leaves make it a paste or buy tulsi powder.

Mix brahmi powder, aloe vera and tulsi paste. Add coconut milk and mix well. Now add coconut oil and mix together. Start to heat it in low flame. Stir with a long spoon. When the fumes starts to come add few grains of rice or fenugreek or corn and see it pops up. This is the proper time to switch off the flame. Take care to not getting the contents too dark or do not allow to burn. When it cools down sieve it and pour into a suitable glass bottle or ceramic container.

You can apply this hair oil with coconut milk once in a week basis. First loosen your hair, take out all the knots with fingers moving from top to ends. Spread well all the strands. Apply the hair oil all over hair and scalp. Give a thorough massage. Special attention for doing rubbing on scalp in a rounded motion. Do not scratch with finger nails. No need to apply excess oil, keep an average quantity to apply. Wait for half an hour. Then take bath. If you want wash out excess oil by washing hair with green gram flour.

If you are applying oil for the first time, apply this hair oil with coconut milk very little at the first time. Then repeat it after three days. Similarly do it three times minimum. Then only your hair and scalp will become used to the new product. First time application may cause a temporary hair loss. Don't worry, continue applying.

(Note:The professional way of making this hair oil is a little different. In that no need to use coconut oil. By heating the coconut milk it will produce coconut oil from that. For that we require more coconut milk. This I am telling is for an information purpose.)

Effectiveness of home beauty tips

Effectiveness of homemade beauty tips

How effective are the homemade natural beauty tips? Sometimes some of you may have this question in your mind. Good. You should know how effective these homemade beauty tips are. What is the difference between other store bought products. Is there any side effects of using these tips.

In my experience the results of homemade beauty tips vary in different persons. Just like some food items may not be suitable for some type of body or person. Similarly the natural packs or masks will give different levels of results. Some items in certain skins should be applied in a specific way. For example hibiscus shampoo. It is 100% natural and we all know it is human friendly plant. But in certain type of hair it will give dry hair. Why? What to do to avoid such condition. Just change the way to applying hibiscus shampoo. Those who have extreme dry hair or those who have very thin hair, apply a little oil on hair and then apply hibiscus shampoo. In this case do not rub very much. Just applying hibiscus as a pack is more result giving technique. And also to get a significant result you must apply in particular intervals. Some hair it requires only a weekly application. In some other type of hair you need daily application for first few days and then a weekly application will do. Then how you know this prior to the application of such homemade methods. An experienced natural homeamde beautician can guide you after studying your skin type or hair type. But it still requires a trial to get the exact methods. Nothing to worry. First of all you must be patient to try it out and test it. Try varriuos methods and find out your own way of applying the packs or doing homeamde facials etc. No harm in trying.

When you apply an acne pack sometimes that will make your skin dry. That is natural. At that time apply it on the acne area only. If it makes your face dry apply some moisturizer after few days. Similarly all the homemade beauty tips have its own specialties. Some people after applying few times they will discard trying it. The main thing to remember is the result may be delayed and a specific visible results can be get after consistent application. Because it does not contain any instant chemicals or such things. Naturally it will become effective gradually.

Other doubt comes in your mind is about side effects. I cannot claim that there is no side effects in using these natural homemade beauty tips. If we eat improper food in a wrong time or situation it may cause problems. Similarly these tips may cause some irritation or discomfort in some cases. But it won't be fatal or harmful.

In my posts I used to give some promises based on my experience. That may include my own experience and sometimes I get experience from my clients. And it all from Indian type of skin or hair. The result of some specific tips may not be that much effective in other areas of world. Still there are enormous reports getting about the best results from all parts of the world. In these homemade beauty tips mostly we re using fruits or vegetables. It is tested as a food. In another post about precautions using homemade beauty tips I explained how you should take a basic care.

If you have any specific skin conditions or skin problems please consult your family doctor before using any homemade tips. I always used to tell in this case just apply the tips on the inner wrist and see there is no irritation or allergy.

These are all my simple thoughts for today that may benefit to you. Good day.

Get half of a ripe avocado and mash it. Add 3 tsp. honey to it and mix it to prepare a paste. Clean your face with water and apply this paste. Wait for 15 -20 min. and wash it off with water.

This makes your skin moisturized and brings the natural shine. Skin looks more fresh and beautiful. This can be done at least once in a week. I am sure this recipe is one of the best for dry skin.

She wanted to do facial, henna on hair etc. She used to get a homemade face pack after the facial. In the morning when I looked in the fridge I couldn't find any ingredients to make a face pack. For the break fast we had boiled banana(Kerala type banana, not ordinary one). I remembered, oh banana skin is very good for this lady as she is a little aged and with sagging on face. Banana is very good for skin tightening. Also I had carrot and orange. Carrot I uses in every face pack. All together I made a wonderful face pack with banana.

How to prepare homemade banana face pack
Get the skin of half banana(boiled). Cut it into small pieces. Then cut one carrot. Take !/4 of an orange with peel. Put all these ingredients in a mixie. Prepare the pack.

So after doing the normal cleansing and toning I did a massage with the pack I made. I saw the face glow within 2-3 min. After finishing massage I rinsed her face with water and tissue dried. Then I applied the homemade banana face pack all over the face and neck. After 15 min. I washed her face, believe me there was a perfect glow to her skin. When she saw her face on the mirror a big smile sprouted on her face.

Homemade Hair oils

Homemade recipes for hair oils.

In this section I would like to talk about hair oils. You all know that oiling is very good for hair.We can use any oils according to our choice. But just know all the cooking oils cannot be used on hair. If we used to a particular oil for hair and if we change to another oil, our hair and scalp will not accept the new oil immediately. But if we apply that oil for few times it becomes suitable. My personal opinion is stick to one suitable oil because changing oils may cause temporary hair loss etc.

There are so many ways we can prepare homemade hair oils to use in our hair. All the different recipes for hair oils are for making the oil suitable to apply on hair. Moreover it can help the total health of hair and hair growth.

The first thing is to select or find out a suitable oil to prepare homemade hair oil. I know coconut oil is very simple. Definitely I can recommend to others. It is very simple and light oil. But some may not like the natural smell of virgin coconut oil. For them I recommend purified coconut oil. In Europe and U.S people use olive oil. Ground nut oil, castor oil, gingelly oil or even sun flower oil also have been used in many places. But for people with oily skin and hair they don't bother about applying oils and it is OK.

The second step is to make the oil hot. You can apply oils without heating. But hot oil is better. Because by heating we can avoid certain difficulties by putting oil directly. If the oil is a little old and by heating the oil we can make the oil perfect for applying on hair.

How long we have to heat oil? Not to boil, only heat it. In Kerala and other states of India there is a method following to heat the oil. Heat the oil in low flame, then the fumes start to come watch it and add few grains of paddy or corn. When the grains pop up switch off the flame. That is the heating level. Do not allow the grains to burn darker.

And there are lots of local plant leafs added to the oil. But that plants are not available now. Today I am giving you a homemade hair oil recipe with curry leaves. Curry leaves are known to treat dandruff and it can reduce hair loss. That way it can help hair growth.

Coconut oil+ curry leaves recipe
Here we see how to use curry leaves to prepare homemade hair oil. The way I explains here you can prepare the oil and keep it for a long term use, say two or three weeks. No need to keep in refrigerator.

A simple method to prepare hair oil is as I said above heat the oil and add few curry leaves onto it. Before getting the curry leaves too dark switch off the flame. This is the simplest method for lazy ladies. But there is another method to prepare hair oil and it will give more positive results to hair.

First of all take one or two bunches of curry leaf. Remove the leaves one by one. Clean it with water and let it air dry. Make sure there is no water content on the leaves. Grind the leaves into paste. Let it be two tea spoon of curry leaf paste. Then pour half cup of oil, preferably coconut oil into a boiling pan or pot. Start to heat the oil in a low flame. After two min. add the curry leaf paste into the oil. After some time when the oil gets heated we could see fumes coming from the oil. Watch when the green color of the paste starts to become dark just switch off the flame. Allow the oil to cool. Then sieve the oil and pour it into a glass bottle. Homemade hair oil is ready.

When you want to use the oil just take enough oil into a heating pan and heat it. Just heat it minimum enough to apply on hair. Do not apply oil if it is too hot. Apply through out your hair from top to end. Massage the scalp and hair well. Wait for 10-15 min. and take bath.

This is the local very old form of homemade hair oil recipe. You can definitely rely on it. And do not forget the fact that when you starts to follow a new method your hair and scalp may reject it. But do not worry. If repeatedly apply the oil it will become suitable for you.
