Eat Healthy - Good looking hair starts from within. Include lots of green leafy vegetables like spinach and brocolli, nuts, carrots ,citrus fruits like Oranges and berries, soyabean and whole grains in your daily diet.

Drinking Water - Water helps in flushing out toxins from our body and keeps it supple. Drink atleast 6 glasses of water a day to cleanse your body.
Warm oil Massage - Massage your hair with equal mixture of warm olive, castor and coconut oil and leave it overnight. Wash your hair with luke warm water the following day for a silky effect.
Lemon - After you wash your hair, give it a final rinse with the juice of one lemon diluted with a mug of water. This not only gives your hair a great shine but the citrus effect prevents from dandruff.
Black Tea -To give a natural shine to dry hair,use a warm unsweetened tea as a final rinse after your regular shampoo.
