• A regular scrub of sugar mixed with a little glycerine and lemon juice on the heels adds moisture and repairs. The dry, dusty look will disappear if done very day.

• Brewed black tea is a rich antioxidant and tones the scalp. Leave it on hair as it keeps them healthy and dark. Fresh, brightly coloured fruits and vegetables should be incorporated into the diet.

• Take a banana, 1 tablespoon yogurt, 1 tablespoon sesame oil and 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar; blend all of them together. Apply this mask into the hair especially on the ends. Leave this on for one hour, then rinse off with a mild shampoo. Do this thrice a week for best results.

• Take 1 tablespoon of fenugreek seeds; soak overnight. Next day, grind and make a paste; add to this 1 tablespoon yoghurt and 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel. Message this mix onto scalp. Rinse off after an hour. Do this twice or thrice a week until your problem is resolved.

• Cinnamon activates blood circulation; take quarter teaspoon cinnamon powder, 1 teaspoon lentil flour, and mix with yoghurt to form a thick paste. Apply this mask on the chin. When dry, scrub off. Do this every day; you will see the ingrown hair come to the surface in a few days or even weeks; wax them or get a laser treatment.
