When we use different products that is from stores, may give the concerned results, like straightening or volumising or shampooing. But our concern should be to get back the natural condition of hair. For that also we can use store bought conditioners. But most of the time the lab manufactured conditioner cannot give back the natural state of the hair. Our hair is having its own natural state because of the food we eat. That state is slightly disturbed by the use of lab products. In this situation we can think about giving back the natural condition of hair by using natural things that may be mainly from our food items. Means reconditioning hair from the kitchen itself.

Here today I am suggesting a vegetable oriented natural hair conditioner. This is a hair conditioning treatment in a stretch. Some may think that what is the relevance in using these vegetables that is used as food. When we eat food that food get digested and the concerned ingredient reach the scalp through blood circulation. Here when we use these things on the scalp we get the nourishment directly. This is like that we get immediate result when we use oilment than using tablets. This is because of the difference in external application on the affected area and using medicines internally.
Here is the recipe for a natural hair conditioner right from your kitchen. Here the main ingredients are cucumber, tomato, ladies finger, carrot and egg white. For those who don't like egg then use chick pea powder or green gram powder. Take two small cucumbers, one tomato, three ladies fingers, two carrots and one egg. According to the thickness and volume of hair you can increase or decrease the quantity of the ingredients. The cucumber helps to remove the chlorine content if any and it gives cooling effect. It is helping the scalp to adjust its normal state. Tomato acts as a toner that helps bumps in the scalp. It removes scalp itching. Ladies finger works as a good hair conditioning agent. And it deepens the natural color of hair. If the hair is black it makes deep black. If the hair is brown it gives deep reddish color. If it is blond it gives deeply glowing appearance.
