International actress, singer, dancer and former Miss World, Priyanka Chopra sat down to talk about something many women care about – haircare. Priyanka has been known to openly share her favorites including several DIY home remedies to keep her hair healthy and strong.
LETS TALK ABOUT HAIR
When it comes to hair (or skin for that matter), the Indian culture as a whole is quite opinionated. Woman must have voluminous straight thick hair. Not only is this not realistic, but as we age our hair texture, volume and type changes in response to genetics and environmental factors. Its so relatable to see naturally curly-haired PC talk about her mane.
Priyanka was recently interviewed by Instyle magazine about her beauty musts in which talked about how she both tames and maintains her iconic tresses. Not surprising to the Indian community, she mentioned her love of coconut oil hair masks & massages. PC is particularly fond of this coconut oil. According to Priyanka, “Put it on and leave it in for two hours or overnight, but really massage it in; it’ll stimulate the roots to help the hair become stronger and longer.” How many of us have had our nanis and dadis massage our scalps with coconut oil when we were little? It might take several shampoos to get out, but hair does feel softer and healthier after. Turns out PC swears by it too.
Priyanka also has a DIY scalp treatment that she recommends using. To maintain scalp health or repair an unhealthy scalp, PC suggests mixing full fat (greek) yogurt, a teaspoon of honey, and one egg into a bowl. Apply the mask to your scalp and leave on for 30 minutes before washing with warm water and baby shampoo.
In addition to her home remedies, Priyanka also can’t help but brag about her favorite conditioner. PC says it “hydrates my hair and it smells so good!”.
Please always be sure to try new products and DIY remedies on a small patch of skin to test for an allergic reaction before complete application. Thank you PC for sharing. We are constantly looking for our favorite remedies and medicine cabinet mainstays!
