Traditional Savouries of Eid-ul-Adha

Eid ul-Adha or bakr-eid is a festival that is celebrated worldwide. The celebration of Eid-ul-Adha is to honour Prophet Ibrahim’s devotion to Allah (lord) and his willingness to sacrifice his son. At the very point of sacrifice, Allah replaced his son with a lamb, which was to be slaughtered in place of his son. This command from Allah was a test of Prophet Ibrahim’s readiness and commitment to obey his Lord’s command, without question. Therefore, Eid-ul-Adha means the festival of sacrifice.

This festival is all about prayers and exchanging gifts with your family and friends. People spend quality time with their near and dear ones. After offering prayers in a mosque in the morning the act of qurbani (sacrifice) is carried out.

Monsoon brings along rain of jubilation which soars one’s vehemence to cloud high, but this finite elation may have adverse effects to your precious locks. During rainfall hair’s chemical structure makes it unusually sensitive to airborne hydrogen, forming bonds, and swells until the smooth cuticle erupts to make them frizzy. Damp hair may lead to many other problems too. Another reason that worsens the problem is the presence of environmental pollutants in rainwater that intensifies the fungal infections on the scalp that weakens roots and causes hair fall. Even if you are not directly exposed to rainfall, still it is a task to dry hair after a shower due to the prevalent humidity.

So, here are some Indian/ Ayurvedic remedies to your rescue! Have a look.

Aloe vera juice
Aloe vera is an ingredient known to make your system clean. It is commonly used in Ayurveda for its innumerable health benefits. It’s high on alkaline properties- vital in balancing the PH levels of your hair which in return stimulates hair growth and strength.

Directions: Aloe vera can be both, consumed and applied so, you can have fresh and homemade aloe vera juice in the morning with lukewarm water. Also, its pulp can be directly applied to the scalp. Apply and leave it for 1-2 hours then rinse it with lukewarm water.

Methi seeds (Fenugreek)
Methi is a miracle herb for promoting hair growth that also adds life to your deadlocks. It’s rich in hormone antecedents which help in revitalizing damaged hair follicle thus, strengthens the hair and adds immunity to prevent damage and breakage of the hair.
