My love for homemade Skin Care and Hair Care started very young ...I used to go through various magazines and newspapers to educate myself about various store cupboard ingredients we can use to make various products for skin and hair care..

HAIR CARE RECIPES:
Home Keratin smooth hair mask:
1 small cup sour natural set yogurt with the water in it.
1 Table spoon honey
Rice flour enough to make it a thick paste
Apply this paste to scalp and hair before washing your hair leave it for an hour and wash with sulphate free shampoo..
This hair mask works amazingly well to balance the scalp sebum levels and the probiotics in the sour yogurt and water keep the scalp healthy.
Honey is a great humectant and gives the hair shine and bounce .Rice flour is rich with flavonoids which promote the hair growth and make hair silky too.
This is my must go to hair masks ...which is less messy , easy to make and rinses off well and suitable for all hair types..
I really don't recommend any other hair masks as sometimes too much of protein can offset the hairs natural pH...so until you are prescribed a hair mask by a qualified trichologist ..stick to this basic mask.
I recommend to oil your hair at least once a week before shampoo even if you have oily or dandruff prone scalp..just leave it on for a hour and shampoo for better hair results.
Best black and whiteheads removing technique:
Steam the face with any dried tea leaves and then scrub the nose with an mild facial scrub and use the steel black head removal tool or scrapper .
Wipe of with witch Hazel and apply alovera gel ...

(This is just a home remedy and I am not a qualified professional and this is not a cure)
Vaginal Atropy is a common problem we all women encounter when we reach a certain age and it can be very painful and decrease our confidence levels a lot.
Try these home remedies for some level of relief please always consult a doctor before trying this..
