Most of us suffer from various hair problems, like dandruff, hair loss, dry hair, greasy hair etc. And to get rid of them, we keep on changing our shampoos. But do you know, these problems are actually caused by shampoos and conditioners. Shampoos make our lives easier, but a coin has two sides. 90% of our hair problems are the result of using wrong shampoo. Shampoo is basically a detergent which cleans our hair and side by side strips it of natural oil which keeps our hair soft and strong. This is the root cause of all our hair problems. So naturally, washing your hair with shampoo almost every other day will only worsen the overall situation. But fret not, there are few natural ingredients that can not only clean your hair but also keep your hair worries at bay. Take a look below to find out some Natural Ways to Clean Hair without Shampoo.
Peppermint Wash for Hair
In a bowl, add one cup of water. Place the bowl over medium heat and bring it to boil. Add a handful of peppermint leaves to it. Let the leaves soak in the hot water for 10 minutes and then strain the water. Keep the leaves aside. Use the water to wash your hair and scalp. Massage your scalp with the leaves. The juice that will come out of these leaves will clean up the residue and dirt from the scalp. This is one of the best natural solution to have healthy, clean hair.
Rosemary Wash for Hair
Crush a handful of rosemary leaves and add them to water. Let it soak for about 8-10 minutes. Rinse your hair with this water. Rosemary is a wonderful herb to use on hair and it has a lovely aroma that makes your hair smell great.
