Beat these together well to form a paste, and then apply it directly to your hair, from root to tips. Leave this on for twenty minutes, before rinsing with a mild shampoo.
Liquorice root is great at protecting your hair from damage, and from preventing hair loss. On top of this, it is also great for those who suffer from dandruff, as it can help to soothe the scalp and get rid of any dry flakes.
Make a simple paste, by adding a tablespoon of ground liquorice root, and a quarter of a teaspoon of saffron to one cup of milk. Apply this mixture directly to the scalp, and the length of your hair, before leaving it to work its magic overnight. The following morning, wash your hair normally, and repeat this process twice a week.
