Indian women are much envied for thick, lustrous, jet black tresses, and our mums did it with yoghurt. The reason? Plain yogurt is replete with zinc, calcium and protein, making it a terrific softening conditioner for dry brittle damaged hair when massaged in for five minutes after the shampoo. Yoghurt can also be applied directly to the scalp to sooth, re-balance and hydrate, reducing itchiness and flaking. Give it a try today!
