Our hair needs love and care for it to stay healthy and luscious. While we take enough measures to protect our skin, when it comes to our mane, we usually follow the simple oil, shampoo, condition routine. However, if you want well-nourished healthy hair, you need to take an extra effort to maintain your locks. Every day, our hair attracts dirt, dust, pollutants and more and not all of us wash it off every day. This means, these settle on our scalp and not just irritate it but also prevents healthy hair growth. In order to keep our locks looking good, we need to nourish them with hair packs that deeply condition them and leave our hair feeling soft and healthy. Hair packs can be easily made at home without much effort and can do wonders for your hair. These packs are made using natural ingredients that are easily available and are not very expensive either. We list here one simple hair pack that you can try at home and see the results within a few weeks.Also Read - Haircare Tips: Here's Why Combing Your Hair Daily is Extremely Important
