Maintaining healthier-looking hair is part of their glamour regime, but might not be always hefty on the pockets. Most of them follow hair care routines by using simple home remedies with products that are easily available in the market or grocery stores.
Here’s the secret list, straight from your favorite celebs for healthier looking hair, that you wanted to get your hands on.
Having her roots established in South India, we all know that Deepika Padukone likes keeping it simple and traditional. This reflects not just in her outfits, but also her lifestyle and most importantly the fact that she follows the age-old ritual of applying coconut oil for hair is what makes her mane look so healthy. Doing a weekly coconut oil ‘champi’ or massage makes the hair roots stronger and brings shine to the hair making it more supple and glossy. Oil massages help in boosting blood circulation in the scalp and nourish the roots which in turn help in hair growth. Also, for better results, warm up the oils before applying them. This is a go-to remedy for all women irrespective of their age and geographical differences.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Being the princess of the Kapoor family, Kareena is eventually blessed with good genes and naturally healthy hair. For generations, the Kapoor family has been obsessed over Ayurvedic Amla Hair Oil which is a rich source of Vitamin C and iron. Our hair goes through a lot of damage due to pollution, heat from sunlight, stress and artificial chemical treatments like straightening, and thus becomes dry, loses moisture and becomes rough in texture. This can only be combated if nourished with vitamins externally. Kareena Kapoor Khan, in one of the talk shows, mentioned the secret to her gorgeous looking hair is that she massages her head with a combination of four oils – amla, coconut, almond and olive oil, at least twice a month. This naturally boosts the moisture levels of the hair making them strong, radiant and silky.

This actress is a firm believer in letting your skin and hair take the natural course and therefore, keeps a professional outlook for her hair care routine. She only invests in regular spas and pampers her hair with herbal treatments whenever her hair feels dry or damaged. Seeking professional help, according to Kangana is, perhaps, the best way to keep your hair healthy and natural looks intact!
When it comes to hair care, Priyanka Chopra upvotes for home remedies to repair any kind of damage to her hair. The global icon has a great hair care secret to make it look naturally glossy and beautiful. She says, that a one-stop solution for damaged, dry hair is Yogurt.

Anushka Sharma is a big fan of hair masks and ayurvedic hair oils. She has quite an interesting home-made hair mask regime that keeps hair problems at bay and makes them look lustrous, bouncy and silky-smooth. For Anushka’s secret hair mask, you just need to mix coconut oil, amla powder, egg yolk (a rich source of vitamins and proteins) and water in sufficient amounts as per the length of your hair. Apply this deep-conditioning mask all over your scalp and through the lengths of your hair. Then make it into a bun and keep it for about an hour before washing it off with herbal shampoo.
