Hey there, how are you all? This has been a long-awaited blog post. I feel good that I’m finally writing it. Don’t know for how long I’ve been thinking to write it down! It’s about a DIY home remedy with Sour Curd. Which is actually the secret of having healthy hair.

Sour curd, a simple but well-known product as a beauty essential. People use it as a home remedy in many ways for its effective ingredient. Do I really need to rave more about this? I think you already know everything. However, I’ll be writing today how this has become the most effective part of my beauty remedy, especially when it’s about my Hair.

I’m not any ‘taking good care of hair and skin’ kind of a person. Life is busy, who have time and energy for giving a good amount of time to skin and hair? I always reach for easy and shortcut way when comes to taking care of skin and hair.

I must mention, I got this Curd method from my Grand Maa.

Since I’m using this method, every time it’s been performing magically.

Sour curd DIY home remedy secret of healthy hair

How to use sour curd for hair and skin?

I don’t really use it like normal people does…mix with a daily care pack, give it time to sit, etc. As I said before, I don’t have time or patient for all this. Maximum three times a week, I take 5/6 tablespoon of Curd with me in the shower. Before getting wet apply curd Head to toe, give a good massage…

No, I don’t take a long time for that, maybe 3/4 minute for the whole process. And then wash it off and start talking shower normally. That’s it! This easy-peasy method always does more than anything I need.

Why sour curd DIY mask is the secret of healthy hair?

First, let’s talk about my hair. I got fine hair genetically. They are straight, black in color and thinner than usual. I’m a hair color freak and I do a lot of experiment with my hair. Every 2/3 months I reapply color without judging anything.

To add more, I hate the wet hair and open hair when I’m at work or normally outside. Thus, I go through blow dry and hard styling sprays every day. Moreover, I take a hot water shower every day, quite a bad habit for hair, I know!

Don’t you think all these are quite enough to get damaged hair?

I’m proud enough to say, I have healthy hair. They are not frizzy, they shine, manageable without any live-in conditioner or such thing and I bet you won’t find any split ends. All credit goes to only my thrice a week 3/4 minute sour curd method. Within this short time it the condition, nourish, soften, and cleanse deeply. Trust me, from the first use you will see the magical difference.

Skincare with sour curd DIY mask:

I have combination skin on the face, but body parts are mainly dry and sensitive. With this dryness and patchiness, 15-minute open sun ray is more than enough to get burned. I meant actually burned not tanned, doesn’t matter how high SPF I use!

Don’t you think it’s quite scary?

Yes, I always try to avoid the sun but I’m bound to go out and how about managing dryness ?!!

Again, the simple thing… Sour Curd.

No, curd doesn’t magically remove tan/burn for me. It cleanses deeply, smoothes out any dry flake and restores moisture. Moreover, Sour curd contains calcium which helps to strengthen nails and also restore the natural color of the nail.

More benefits of sour curd:

I eat sour curd every night as my dessert. 2/3 tsp with a bit of salt, sometimes with sugar and sometime along. People say it helps to reduce tummy fat, I don’t know about that! But I believe it helps to purify skin from inside and helps the digestive system to perform well.

Now you tell me,
if I call sour curd my head to toe beauty cares essential, is it too much to say?

My random feeling:
Whenever I use this I feel like Cleopatra ;p ;p ..I wish I could use milk instead of Curd!! But milk is expensive for me to take shower with so I’m being happy with sour curd ;p ;p

To conclude my rave post about DIY sour curd home remedy,there is some fact I wanna mention…

  • Do not rub your hair much when you apply sour curd on hair. Sour curd softens your hair pretty quickly, so if you rub your hair much you might trigger hair fall. Even if you use it too much like let it sit for long or thinking to use every day, then also it can cause hair fall.
  • Do not forget to shampoo and using normal conditioner after. If you don’t do that then the oily residue left from curd might harm your hair.
  • Same for your skin as well. Use your favorite body wash and rub-off any residue left from sour curd, especially from the face. Otherwise, you won’t get rid of dry flakes of your skin. Also, contained excessive oil/moisture might trigger pimples on your face.
  • If your hair is colored and you thinking to apply curd then keep in mind, your hair color might wash off a bit quicker than usual because of its acidic component.
  • Do not expect that you gonna be fair or your facial spots gonna be removed magically. In a short, regular use of sour curd will provide you healthy and clean skin as well as hair. Only because, it cleanses well. Gradually you’ll notice your tan is fading away and adding a healthy glow to your skin.

Note for this home remedy with sour curd:

All the things I stated here totally from my personal experience. So either you can trust me and give it a try or, you can just ignore it. Every product doesn’t suit everyone, so don’t forget to do an allergy test before you go for it. Though it’s a natural ingredient, you never know it might cause you allergy. Like I’m ridiculously allergic to cucumber, which I never heard that happened to anyone else! Just Hoping this post gonna be helpful for you.

I normally use sour curd by Aarong, because it is widely available here in my area but you can use any brand that is available to you.

That’s all for today. Do let me know how this DIY process worked for you if you’re going to try. Also if you have a favourite DIY home remedy for hair and skin then please do share with us all in the comments below.

    Loved the detailed mention of Sour Curd.
    I have been using it for my face, it’s time to try for hair too.How often do you oil your hair? This is something I am lazy at but the secret to many amazing flawless hair is oil massage too.

    1. thank you 🙂
      yeh i know, at-least oil works for hair fall. But i hate oil, it gives me head ache straight up. Though only to prevent hair fall i use oil may be twice a month 30 min before shower.

    thanks .. i’ll try it… bt i’m going through excess hair fall 🙁
    and trying egg white with lemon and honey… bt it is nt working at all.. it moisture my hair along with great hair fall 🙁

    1. Yet you need to find out the reason actually why your hair is falling! It can be because of food or irregularities! Make sure of the reason.

    টক দই ফ্রিজে রাখলেও তো পানি ছেড়ে দেয়, সেক্ষেত্রেও কি টক দই টা ব্যবহার করা যায়?

    1. Hi বীথি,
      টক দই পানি ছাড়লে সমস্যা নাই। যতক্ষণ এক্সপায়ার ডেট থাকবে আর ফাঙ্গাস না পরবে ততক্ষণ ব্যবহার করতে পারবে। অবশ্যই ফ্রিজে রেখে ব্যাবহার করবে

    Hi apu……Sour yogurt – isnt it a kind of protein pack for the hair? Cn we use protein pack 3 times / week? Thank u in advance 🙂

    1. Hi dear, no it’s not a protein pack. It works more like a clarifying and smoothing pack. Milk/curd acid helps to remove build ups from hair, nourish and repair damage as it goes. 3times would be a bit too much. Once a week should be enough but if your scalp is oily then twice a week would perfect.

        Thank u so much for the reply 🙂 i need sth to tame the frizz in my hair, its so rough & damaged after coloring and rebonding…. can u suggest any natural pack tht i cn use regularly? Its has become an issue for me to go outside with this kind of hair :'(
        P.S. i stopped blowdrying and use sls free shampoo and silicone free conditioner

        1. Have you tried hot oil massage therapy? once a week and works for me like magic. Also smashed papaya+banana+egg works as a protein pack(that you talked about earlier) and helps to smooth out the hair.
