PLEASE GIVE ME SOME TIPS TO MAKE MY FRIZZY HAIR A LITTLE smoother and manageable. My problem has become worse after I have moved to Hyderabad from Tiruvananthapuram. I am a 30-year-old home-maker.
Your frizzy hair issue has exacerbated due to the climatic differences between the two cities. Kerala is humid while Hyderabad is dryer in comparison. Frizziness is mainly caused by dehydration, when hair loses moisture and natural oils.
So the immediate remedy is to restore the moisture and the natural oil content.
Massage your hair and scalp gently with warm coconut oil. Wrap a thick towel soaked in hot water and wrung out around your head for a hour, so that the skin pores are opened and the oil seeps through. Wash off with a mild shampoo. Do this at least once a week.
Apply a honey and milk mask on your hair to improve the ph level.
Apply a good serum daily on scalp and massage with firm finger tips.
Always use an oil-based conditioner after shampooing hair.
These methods will nourish, soften and smoothen hair within a few weeks. I JUST NOTICED THAT MY ELBOWS ARE DARK AND HAVE A PATCH OF thickened skin. How can I clear this up?
Many of us tend to ignore the elbows, the nape of the neck, the heels, and such other parts of our body which we cannot see!
Mix the lime juice with a little milk cream, and apply it on the elbows to remove the dark tint. Keep it on for a few hours before washing off, Do this at least thrice a week.
Make a scrub of lime juice and sugar crystals, and rub into the elbows to exfoliate the dead skin cells which is causing the thickened skin. Gradually, this will clear up. Apply a little soothing lacto calamine after the scrub.
You can also use a whitening cream of a reputed brand to whiten the elbows.
Once this problem has been rectified, take care to scrub the elbows very thoroughly with a loofah or towel when bathing, to avoid the build up of grime.
