Have healthy and shiny hair is a prerequisite for the beauty of Arab women.
How do Arab girls manage to have such beautiful hair?
The answer is simple. Since ancient times, women in the Middle East have used products provided to us by nature. Traditionally in Arab countries and also in India, women and girls prefer to use dairy products, different essential oils (like lavender and jasmine) and herbal extracts to care for their long hair.
For centuries Arab women have applied dairy products to their hair. Chemical shampoos and soaps have always been avoided. Dairy products like yogurt or milk provide an oily film, which protects the hair from the harmful effects of the sun or the wind.
Also, you can just use yogurt. Apply it to your hair, gently massage the scalp with your fingertips, before rinsing off with lukewarm water. For shiny hair, rinse it with water and lemon juice.
