Rice water + rosemary oil = thicker hair

Rice water + rosemary oil = thicker hair

My wife and I are big fan of your columns and received several remedies from you before. Recently, our 15-year-old daughter waxed her upper lip at a salon and burnt her upper lip line. It's been more than a month, but this line is still visible and looks very bad. She tried several home remedies with no results. Please advise. Further, her hair is getting thinner by the day and hair growth is extremely slow.

Vitamin E oil applied daily on the dark mark and left overnight will be very helpful in removing the mark. For thinning hair and slow hair growth, take some thick starch water left over from cooking rice and let it ferment overnight. The next day, add a few drops of rosemary oil. Massage into the entire scalp and rinse after two hours. Do this three times a week. Her hair will thicken and start growing gradually.
Is there a natural remedy to prevent hair from splitting at the ends? Please let me know.

Mash banana and honey to form a paste; apply this all over your hair. Use a wide-tooth comb to distribute all over, including the dry ends. Rinse after 30 minutes. Do this three times a week. Drink at least 10-12 glasses of water every day and improve your diet by eating green, leafy vegetables, nuts, eggs, yoghurt and lean meats.
For many years, I combed my hair with a partition in the middle but now, the scalp in that area can be seen way too clearly. I have been having lots of hair fall and some dandruff too. Please help, as I'm worried about going bald. Everyone in my family has really thin hair too.

Grate 1 tablespoon onion, squeeze out the juice, and add 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel, 1 teaspoon castor oil and 5 drops tea tree oil. Massage this into your entire scalp, paying extra attention to the centre area where you are balding. Leave on overnight, and shampoo off the next day with a protein shampoo. Do this at least thrice a week for quick results.
Hi Rima, I recently read a solution you'd given for dandruff, where you ask the reader to take 2 tbsp of aloe vera gel and add 12 drops of tea tree oil to it. I want know whether this treatment gives a permanent solution or is it just temporary?
- Blessen
Dandruff is triggered by poor diet, low water intake, elevated stress levels, poor hygiene and improper shampooing. It can even get passed on by using a common hairbrush with family or friends who have dandruff, or by sleeping on pillows with dandruff on them. The recommended treatment works excellently, if all these other factors are taken care of.
