Yogurt: Protein which is present in yogurt helps strengthen the hair shaft, which prevents split ends and hair damage. Lactic acid in yogurt hydrates the hair to be hydrated, and when rinsing, the yogurt helps to clear away dead skin cells. Yogurt has medical and cosmetic effects on the follicle, scalp and roots of your hair


Honey - Honey has rich antioxidant properties that prevent damage, keeping your scalp and hair healthy. It reduces breakage, which is often a cause of slower hair growth. Honey could work better for women naturally curly hair or dry hair.
