Minaz

Hello beautiful, welcome to hair buddha. I am Minaz, an ex-practicing Neuro-Physiotherapist turned natural – hair – therapist!ย  I am writing to share my experiences on natural hair care that has been effective not only on me but also on many wonderful people around me.

My healthy hair mantra is “eat natural and feed your hair natural”. I like to blend traditional wisdom with modern science. I come from India, the land of champi-tel malish, which literally means head massage using pure or herb infused oils. For centuries, hair nourishing rituals such as head massage, henna hair packs, herb infused oils and mud baths have been an integral part of hair grooming for both men and women. Sadly, the natural hair care ritual is gradually fading away and so is the hair health. Through my blog, I want to revive the nourishing rituals for happy and healthy hair.

With loving wishes to have a ‘good hair day’ everyday ๐Ÿ™‚

Why hair buddha?

Many people think buddha is the name of the founder of Buddhism. But his original name was Siddhartha Gautama. When he gained enlightenment, through intense mediation, he was given the title of buddha. (I am a spiritual person and I have a huge reverence for Gautam Buddha – one of the greatest prophets of all time.)

Buddha comes from the Sanskrit work buddhi. It literally means wise, learnt, or awakened.

I have gone through many hair problems.ย During the course of hair struggle I came to realise that just by changing shampoo or conditioner my hair will not improve.

Itโ€™s much deeper than that.

Yes hair that comes out of that scalp is pretty much dead. But the manufacturing unit of hair โ€“ that hair follicle โ€“ is situated beneath the scalp and it is alive. This hair follicle is fed by the nutrients and oxygen supplied by the blood vessel.

So fixing it externally is not going to help. We need to take a holistic approach in caring for it better.

I have done many years of research, and read extensively on hair care. My background in medical sciences helps me see the scientific picture on any hair problem. And my interest in yoga, ayurveda and natural remedies makes the complete package holistic.

But honestly, I am still learning. My quest is on and through hair buddha I like to share with you what makes your hair healthy and beautiful.

If you have been reading my posts you will know that this blog is not just about hair. I am passionate about helping people feel better, more beautiful, and in alignment with their true self.

And I like to thank all my dear readers for your love and support. You keep me going and it means a world to me.

    Mahesh, eating amla (indian gooseberry) and curry leaves is quite effective to prevent/reverse greying. Also try nail rubbing – 10mins every day. How to do –>> http://www.hairbuddha.net/?p=45
    And use herbs like bhringraj in hair oil or hair packs. Read more –>> http://www.hairbuddha.net/?p=20

    In addition to above eat a healthy balanced diet and exercise regularly.

I’m trying to grow my hair to by belly button (it is currently right below my shoulders), what are some easy ways too speed up he hair growth process?

Reply
    Minaz says

    Kaitlyn, few things that you can do to make your hair grow faster:
    1. Weekly oil massage with coconut or olive oil (mix some castor oil as well, about 10%)
    2. Eat foods that promote hair growth, especially flax seeds (linseed), sweet potato, and lentils. More on what to eat click here –>> http://www.hairbuddha.net/?p=590
    3. Prevent hair damage. So if you use heat appliances, use them sparingly. More on how to prevent damage –>> http://www.hairbuddha.net/?p=873
    4. Lastly, post shampoo use herbal hair rinse, which nourishes as well as conditions. Choose from herbs such as chamomile, hibiscus, amla, mint, fenugreek, rosemary.

    Hope this help.

hi Minaz,

its really gud to see that are trying to revive the traditional methods. I have a query that i am 29 and has got androgenic aloepecia. some part of head is getting shiny and i don’t see much roots at that part what should i do. Is it possible to get hairs back at that part of head as I hv heard that at shiny part of head its almost impossible to grow hairs as the roots are either dead or exhausted from that area. I want my hair like it was in college days. Is it feasible. Minaz please help me.

Thanks
Vicky

    Minaz says

    Hi Vicky, Thank you for your kind words.

    I would say be optimistic, but not obsessive. Take good care of your hair and hopefully your hair follicles will get active.

    I would suggest you to do few things:
    1. Nail rubbing every day
    2. Do head massage twice a week using a blend of coconut oil, almond oil, and castor oil (2:2:1)
    3. Use reetha shikakai shampoo to wash your head.
    5. Eat amla in any form – every day of you can.
    6. Lastly, do pranayam (kapalbhati and anulom vilom) and yoga asana. Join a class if you have not done it before.

    Keep us posted on your progress.

    Best wishes, Minaz

Nancy Goyal says

Hi Minaz,

I hope you are good.
I have read your article about hard water in London as I am also based in London and I am experiencing itchy scalp and lot of hairfall. I tried water filter jug method, my scalp is not itchy now but the hairfall is still there, it reduced by only about 10-20%. When I went back to India for a month, in my hometown my hairfall was almost negligible I can count like 4-5 hair falling per day. So I can definitely think its hard water causing hairfall. I apply coconut oil before every wash. Can you suggest what I shoud try next.

Thank you for all your help ๐Ÿ™‚

Few questions on the Ree-Shi shampoo. Why cant it be made and stored in large batches? Also how often can you use this shampoo? I wash my hair daily so it is important for me to know.

Reply
    Minaz says

    Komal, Ree-Shi homemade shampoo doesn’t contain any added preservatives. It’s like food if you leave it out for too long it will grow mold and bacteria.
    But you can freeze it as mentioned in the post and use as and when required.
    And don’t wash your hair daily, do it every alternate day.

Saipriya Nagarajan says

Hi,
I loved your article about the natural shampoo. I am from India and I have been using shikakai to wash my hair from ever since I have known ( I am just 15 years old, My mom tells me to do this). However, we don’t use this method. We get shikakai, grind the seed well, dab some more ingredients in the process and we use the powder to wash our hair. This has been working fine but however I feel that residue is being left in my hair which is quite embarrassing. And I also feel I develop a lot of tangles in this process( I have bushy hair). My mom also insists that I apply coconut oil to my hair every other day. Is it necessary? How do you think I can avoid tangles? And what do you think of this process? which proves better?

Reply
    Minaz says

    Hello Saipriya, Yes the powder residue does tend to create more tangles. What you could do is add couple of cups of hot water to the powder mix and strain the liquid – use this to wash your hair. You can end with shikakai and honey rinse. It will keep your hair moisturised and soft.

    For your hair type coconut oil is not a good choice, instead use sesame or almond oil.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Twala says

    You stated that coconut oil is not good for Saipriya’s hair and I wondering is it because she is Indian. I am African American and want to know if this is something I should be using on my hair?

    Reply
    Minaz says

    Hi Twala, my suggestion was based on her hair type, not because she is an Indian. She described her hair as bushy, which I understand is dry, frizzy and coarse. And such hair is also low porosity, meaning it is not able to absorb or keep moisture in the hair shaft.
    Why no coconut oil? Coconut oil penetrates inside the hair shaft and prevents protein loss. And this build-up of protein makes the hair further stiffer and dryer.

    The best treatment in my opinion is moisturising products such as flax seed homemade gel or oils such as sesame, olive, almond. The best would be to combine the flax seed gel and oil in 1:1 proportion.

    Do let us know your experience.

Reply

    Hi Abhishek, I don’t think laser treatment should cause hair fall. Yes tulsi oil helps improve scalp circulation thereby helping hair follicles receive nutrients and oxygen. You can combine it with sesame oil or coconut oil and head massage 2 or 3 times a week. Good luck!

Rita Hayworth says

Hello, I used to have A LOT of hair as a child, in fact my mother had to use both hands to style it, but since I started using gels, hairsprays, etc. when I was younger & always wearing tight ponytails, a lot of my hair has fallen out. Now, when I tie a ponytail, it’s very thin, nothing like the hair I had once. I have also lost a lot of hair on my edges and have a bald spot on one of them. I actually shaved my hair 2 years ago and it did grow out thicker but I’ve recently gone through an immense amount of stress and once again it has fallen out. I’m desperately seeking answers as to how to regrow my hair to how it once was a long time ago. I’m only 25 and I fear that it will just get worse, especially if I get pregnant and of course get older. Do you think with the proper regime (no heat, oils, healthy eating, protein, hair treatments, no tight styles, etc), my hair could possibly grow to how it once was? I’m actually considering hair implants for my edges. I often feel so frustrated because it’s my own fault I messed up my gorgeous hair. If there is anything you could recommend for me, I would highly appreciate it. Thank you so much, and I’m glad I found your site.

    Hello Rita, having gone through similar situation, I can empathize with you.

    I highly recommend finger nail rubbing, head massage, and egg mask
    And of course healthy diet and exercise.
    For stress relief try yoga nidra.

As an old guy having endured a lot of stress in my life my kidneys and gallbladder have suffered badly. And if you look at where the gallbladder meridian travels on the head you may understand that gallbladder health (mentally and physically) are most important. I digress.

I started on the regrow the hair project. Started about a month ago. Bought a very expensive shampoo. Do the fingernail rubbing six days a week and take a few supplements and extra green supplements and highly recommend a little extra protein. Avoid sugar at all costs. It’s action very nearly imitates that of alcohol.

So does it work. I’m seeing some very pleasing ‘little babies’ growing on bare skin. And in thinning areas there are wonderful new ‘little babies’ also. So I’m very happy that my efforts are working.

May I offer the suggestion that Apple Cider Vinegar be used as a ‘conditioner’. It has a wonderful alkalizing effect on the scalp after shampooing. I use it in a small atomizer bottle at a rate of about 8 or 10 to one parts water to one part ACV. Just spray in on and leave it in. Do it once or twice a day also as it controls the DHT on the scalp. Drinking ACV at least once a day is also excellent as it breaks down the uric acid in the body. Citrus juice also is a boon for the over-acidic condition.

Give it a couple of months diligent work and you’ll see a result. If I, at 66, can see a result, so can you.

Hi, My name’s Maha and I’m form Morocco. I’m a 14 years old girl who’s struggling with her hair T.T I naturally have straight to wavy/curly hair but I damaged it a lot because of the chlorine in the pool, the sun and also because I never wanted to brush it nor take care of it when I was younger. I started to actually give it importance til Last summer, but still didn’t do masks or combed it on a daily basis. To be completely honest, I started brushing it daily starting this year… I use ‘ Garnier shampoo with aloe vera and karite without paraber or silicone’ and I don’t use a conditionner, but used to. I use olive oil regulary and natural hair masks from time to time ( Avocado or eggs masks, or I just mix them up together :D)
I really want to get my natural hair back, but I don’t know what to do.. Please help me ?
(i put photos (before and after) even tho it’s not really clear, I hope it will help you :))

Minaz @hairbuddha says

Hi Kim, you are on the right track. So well done!!

From your picture it looks like your hair needs moisture.
Along with olive you can include more oils for oil treatment, such as sunflower, almond, castor. Use cold pressed ones.

Using too much egg can cause protein overload so give it a miss for a few weeks. You can read on protein overload here: http://www.hairbuddha.net/?p=1827

I would suggest that you add some moisturising herbs to your hair care. read here: http://www.hairbuddha.net/?p=3042

    For lice neem oil is suppose to be very useful. Here are other natural options for lice

    Many a times dandruff can be due to dry scalp. Always oil your hair before washing. You can make your own blendusing pure oils.

    And wash your hair using natural ingredients such as shikakai, reetha, multani mitti or any other clay. This natural shampoo is especially useful for hair loss and dandruff.

No results.

Hello Minaz. My hairs are thin and frizzy and weak from roots. I have dry dandruff which sometimes become itchy. I feel that whenever i have more dandruff, then my hairs become more weak. Before 1 year, i used pure shikakai, 1 small reetha and bhringraj and put it into a iron vessel and boiled. And put this paste for whole night. Next day morning i washed my hair from it. And i got very good results. But this i used only for 2 times. So now my question is , can i mix dry amla, shikakai, reetha, and bhringraj powder at once and boil it into iron vessel and left for the night. And what should be the ratio of all ingredients. Somebody told me that reetha is very hard hair cleanser. So use half reetha or small full reetha. And also how many days in a week should i use hair massage? Please guide me. Thanks in advance.

Hi I am Dhiren Mistry & like others, I am also suffering from hair fall problem too.
Let me tell you my exact short story in order to easy for you to advise for the same.

My hair was good till May & then I had started Gym for the purpose of fat loss. I am very curious regarding reducing fat loss & I had very strict diet, so I have stopped eating Protein foods around 04 months. During that period, I was using Emami Hair gel to get the shape my hair in new style & had a lot of pressure in my work also during that time. I was bathing two times a day due to too much sweat. More hair fall was started during that period only.

Currently I am using Coconut oil & massaging at alternative day in night but hair fall is still not stopped. I have also started Intake of protein food & shorten hair also for prevention.

My Query is as below.
– Please comment on my current prevention or advise better prevention measures.
– Return of fallen hair is possible in my case ? If yes, how much time it will take to regrowth fallen hair?

Hope you understand & waiting for your guidance.

Gemma says

Hi Minaz! Ever since I found your website last November, I’ve been on the natural hair shampoo and rinse, and have been ever so happy with the effects. My hair is definitely softer and less than dry, and that was after having it dyed in a salon and everything! Normally, my hair would be breaking all the over place by now, but aside from my usual hair fall and scalp eczema (which is getting controlled, I think, with aloe vera gel), it’s been great.

My question/post suggestion now is — how do you manage when you go off to a trip somewhere where it isn’t feasible to be boiling herbs? I’m going to make do with a paraben-free conditioner and an apple cider vinegar hair rinse, although I’ll be missing my lime-chamomile-calendula concoction. And thank goodness I have the powder versions of shikakai-aritha-licorice!

But yes, quite curious how you do it!

I have bookmarked this website, all natural ancient remedies. The blog I read was very useful. Please reply to my below concern. I want to know the effect of ‘no shampoo’ on Indian origin hair type. As Indians we do not shampoos on daily basis, only once or twice in a week. I have started ‘no shampoo’ from 1.5 month, I do not know what will be the result and when I will start seeing? So far I did not face oily period on my hair it was very mild, washed once every week with baking soda afterwards apple cider vinegar (stopped using vinegar as hair used get very dry – not smooth). Please tell me when I will start seeing the changes. As of now, I can not leave my hair open tying everyday as they are not smooth to style over and is frizzy. The hair does not look fresh like how it used to after shampoo/conditioner with sleek and less frizzy to style and flow. Hair feels dry and rough.

I see somewhere in internet that, LICORICE, DANDELION, BURDOCK Root paste will regrow the lost hair. We just need to make a paste from these 3 roots and apply on scalp. With in very few weeks the hair will regrow.
Does it really work ?
Any other suggestions ?

Best regards.

    Minaz @hairbuddha says

    I know that licorice is good for hair. Don’t know about the other two herbs. You can also try fenugreek and yogurt pack.

2. Using Derma roller on scalp will regrow the lost hair.

Does this really work ?

Hi. Thank you so much for all of your helpful suggestions! I have been losing hair for over 5 years and the doctors can’t figure out why. I am very eager to try all of your suggestions. Do you have any remedies for the scalp when it burns? The doctors prescribed a steroid cream but it made my hair situation worse. What causes the burning and do you have any treatments?

Thank you!

    Hi Sara,

    Is your scalp dry?
    Do you think you could be allergic to any hair products?

    Reply
    Sara says

    No, the scalp is not dry and I do not believe I’m allergic although it could be a possibility. I feel that the burning is coming from inside- stress or inflammation. When I was on anti-anxiety medication for stress, it was not burning. Currently, I am spraying aloe on my scalp and using arnica gel. I am going to try your yogurt mask soon- that sounds soothing. If you have any other ideas or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it!

    Thank you!

    Minaz @hairbuddha says

    Try drinking coriander/cilantro juice. Take 1/4 cup leaves and grind with 1/3 cup water. Strain and drink. You can also apply the pulp on the scalp. Let me know how this goes.

    Sara says

    HI Thank you for your suggestion. I tried yogurt with fenugreek seeds, alma powder and brahmi powder first (no cilantro in the house). The yogurt was very cooling on the scalp but only lasted an hour or so. I noticed the heat was worse on the sides of my head than on top- i have considerable thinning on the top of my head but the sides are much worse. When I was able to get some cilantro, I drank the juice and put the pulp on my scalp. It was cooling at first but the burning never went away- was this supposed to work inside out or outside in? I cut up some aloe and put that on my scalp before bed. Do you have any other suggestions? I am eager to find a remedy/cure! Thank you!

Hi there and thank you for showing us a recipe for shampoo that actually works! Just a few questions… Is the shampoo safe for kids? My 11 year old son got his eyes a bit red after I washed his hair with it… So maybe you know a shampoo recipe for kids that is less irritating? Just a thought…
The other question is… Can we use the shampoo recipe to wash our body too? Like some sort of liquid soap? And what would you add to it to make it more “milky”? I thought maybe adding some coconut milk or glycerin but I don’t know… What would you suggest?

    You can mix reetha-shikakai shampoo with castile soap (equal quantities).
    Coconut milk is also a good option, add aloe vera gel to it (equal quantities) and use like regular shampoo.

Hi Minaz. I am 24 years old.
1)I have had a wide forehead from childhood. But as I grew up the hairline seems to have receeded a little more. I dont want to look as if I am bald. What do I do grow hair in the front naturally. I dont want to use any medication for this purpose. Pls suggest any effective home remedy. And btw I have curly to wavy hair.

2) I think I am losing a lot of hair while detangling after washing my hair. What should I do to have hair without much tangles. I would love to flaunt my curls but thefear of tangles leaves me with no choice but to comb my hair into a fluffy frizzy mass and tie it up in a braid… Pls help .

Mridul Singh says

Hello Minaz ,
I’m mrudul , 26 male, recently my hair have been turning white and is very visible. earlier it was just little but now it can easily be seen. as per google research i thought it might be due to lack of B12 deficiency. However im a non vegeterian who eats eggs daily so i doubt it might be deficiency of B12. im not really sure what might be the reason for my hair turning white at such a young age. I’m losing my confidence because of this when i face people. my diet is filled with protein i.e eggs chicken yogurt. however since couple of yours i havnt been eating veggies much. i cannot figure out the reason. Please guide me with this query. Also, I request you to help me out with a remedy please.

Reply
    raja says

    Mridul i ask you to read the entire hairloss portion of this website. If you say i did already just for me go once. Just read it read it keep read it few times.
    Then you would definitely find out what the problem you have.
    Dont simply said you have lack of some vitamin and by avoiding veges & greens you make more trouble to your hair. You need all nuts fruits vege fish egg and so on.
    Ever since you became to worry and conscious on your hair that has fallen you get in more trouble .This is more harm to you mentally as well. So please take the Hair affirmation and believe you feed good nutritients to your hair and it take some time. Be patience believe in your process and thoughts. Read hairloss column now.. i believe you will be gotta lustrous hairโ˜บ
    things you should follow
    1.stay cool
    2. Dont view mirror. Bec it makes more stress
    3. Get hair massagr with warm coconut oil daily and go for a weekly once sesame oil massage on either tue or fri.
    4. Stop junk food and snacks/sweets/salt foods.
    5. Consume more water especially on empty stomach. Go for a cow milk
    . Take ginger garlic onion applications
    6. Practise asanas amd pranayama. Just get out bed at 5am and religiously involve in meditation.
    7. Avoid all chemicals and start using natural ( shikakkai, aloevera, fenugreek, egg and so on)
    Dont take this all as simple it will change your worries sure.
    This is the wonderful site and i just love thiss all and read daily. You must read everything on this site and follow the best.

Also when i massage my hair,my hair falls out even more. I am very tensed. Will a proper diet and exercise help? If yes then for how long i need to practice it.? Please revert ma’am.. Looking for a favourable response.

    Hi Kumud, If hair massage causes more hair fall, just do a light tapping with fingers on the scalp, this will also stimulate your hair follicles.
    It will take a few months. The less stressed you are, the faster your hair will grow.

Hello again, Minaz,
I had written to you sometime last year. Have not given up making and using Miracle Hair mask and Shikekai shampoo that you have kindly suggested, though I still don’t see any improvement but have not given up hope. Scalp continues to be overly oily, with fine, thinning hair and hair loss which leaves me disappointed. With so many home made natural products, I am getting really confused. My only wish is to keep whatever little hair that’s left !
I believe oily scalp can also be a reason for hair loss and still it is necessary to use the oils for nourishment. No conditioning is necessary either after shampooing.
I have started taking Vit.B12 and So what routine should I follow

Reply
Pratibha says

Sorry my previous comment was not completed and it got posted.
I have started having Vit B2 and Biotine 5000 mcg if this will be any help. Is there any way I can keep oiliness at bay or use some kind of refreshing herbal spray between applying hair pack and shampooing twice a week. Hair grows quickly – a good 2 inches in two months but it remains thin/fine and straggly. How can I thicken my hair ? Thankyou very much.

s brushing good for your hair, my daughter and I have not washed our hair for 4 weeks now as we don’t like the commercial shampoos, but will certainly make one of yours, but we have been brushing our hair with a hogs hair brush for about and hour each evening after dinner and rinsing with rosemary infused water. Is this amount of brushing okay, our hair is looking good. She has very thick wavy brown hair and I have fine grey hair, but plenty of it.

    May be an hour is a bit too much, but if you have very thick hair and you are doing it in sections, it will require more time. Try reducing the brushing time by half.
