Hi there,
I am so excited to have found your website! I just recently started getting into Ayurvedic herbs for hair care and I am so excited to be turning over this new leaf. 🙂 I have heard these herbs are so good for our hair! I have been trying to come up with my own formula for myself and to share with friends and family. I have learned that this will not keep for longer than 5 days without a preservative so have purchased as natural I can, the most natural preservative I can find. I am experimenting with == Soapnuts, Shikakai, Bhringraj,Amla..etc. I purchase the Sopanuts and Amla dried and soak overnight..next morning I bring to a boil and low simmer for about 15-20 minutes. I recently purchased the Shikakai and Amla which are in powder form and I am wondering if okay to add to the dried Amla and soapnuts and allow to soak overnight as well? I am also trying to figure out the ratio of how much of everything to use. Do you happen to have a basic ratio with amounts? I know that soapnuts and Shikakai can be cleansing and drying if not used with the more conditioning herbals like the Amla and Bhringraj? I think once I get my proportions straight in understanding how much of everything to use and how much to dilute, I will have myself a great shampoo, Thank you so much for sharing your feedback and expertise on the subject. I look forward to hearing back from you! 🙂 Oh and also– is it okay to use a conditioner as well? What I have found is that sometimes my hair can feel very stiff and tangled when using these powders? I am trying to also see about adding a small bit of Aloe Vera, Glycerine, and even honey and or Agave to give it more conditioning properties. 🙂 Thanks again!

    Hi Cheryl, Glad you liked my site.
    Try this ratio: 2 parts shikakai, 1 part reetha, and 1 part amla. If you are using the powders then you don’t have to soak them overnight.
    And yes you can add any of the conditioning ingredients, that you mentioned, in the shampoo.
    Let me know how it works.
    Best wishes.

Hi there :

I have the hair problem for ever, and now I am going to use Reetha (whole one) only as I have them. Please suggest me how to use Reetha only without Shikakai and Amla, or if I want to buy them where from I can buy them(in US as I live in Montana and there is no Indian grocery), but for now how to use Reetha only. Before I never had dandruff, and now I have just a little dandruff. I am scared. Please suggest me.

Thanks
Bulbul

    Minaz says

    Hi Bulbul, Soak 3 to 4 pods in about 200 ml of water overnight (6 to 8 hours). You can also add some orange or lemon peel to this. Boil for about 5 minutes, switch off the flame and let it cool. Once cool, crush the reetha berrier with your hands to extract all the goodness. Strain and use.

    You can buy shikakai and amla online:
    Shikakai: Buy here
    Amla: Buy here

Hello Sir, I am 50 plus. Last 9 months I am doing this process of ‘NAIL RUBBING’. But there is no result yet. Is there any possibility of hair regrow in this age?

Reply
    Minaz says

    Hello, continue nail rubbing. Also, use 1 tablespoon carrot or apple juice (freshly extracted) plus 1 teaspoon almond oil to massage your scalp. Do twice or thrice a week. And wash your hair using this natural shampoo
    I would say give this a try as well.

Hi MInaz,
I am 30 yrs now and have been facing a lot of hair fall.
The fall is to such an extent that now the scalp can be clearly visible, Specially in the front portion.
It looks like baldness in small patches.
I have tried many home remedies.
I do not want to try on Minoxidil.
Plz suggest some remedy.
And if exercises what kind of exercises would help me in regaining my lost hair.
Regards,
Girija

Hey, m 24 years old with black thick in texture, dry frizzy hair. We shifted to a new house last august where water contains a lot of iron. Basically boring water.The same year, in October I met an accident and went through a lot of mental trauma suffering minor injuries. Since this february I have been having huge amount of hairfall. I was using l’oreal paris damage control shampoo and conditioner. It stopped for a few months and again started. To use the best shampoo brand I asked my friend to get shwarzkopf shampoo and conditioner for me from Ukraine as it is quite expensive here. I put Habibs henna once a month or in two and put a head mask of egg honey and curd every fortnight or so. I oil and massage regularly once a week and then wash my hair. No other chemical stuffs. but since july the hairfall has been tremendous and every third day at night my scalp starts itching. I walk a lot because of work and m a student too so other than all these I dont have time and cant spend much on stuffs. Where am I going wrong?

    Hi Afshan,

    I am glad you’re enjoying the site.

    Give it a try and see how your hair feels.

    But in future start with one or two herbs to see what works and what doesn’t.

    Hope this helps.

Hi Minaz
You are doing a great job. God bless you.
For treatment of dandruff, can we add Tee tree essential oil in neem oil. I mean to say neem oil and olive oil in 1: 8 ratio and tee tree oil as advised 10 drops in 15 ml of oil.
And how many times a week should we use it?

You have also mentioned to use a combination of amla juice and coconut oil. can we use amla juice with olive oil?

Regards
Sanjeev

    Minaz @hairbuddha says

    Thanks Sanjeev, First try neem and olive oil. Use twice a week.
    Yes you can use amla juice with olive oil.

I frequently use coconut hair oil on my hair..how can I remove oil using amla reetha shikakai shampoo…I remember that you have posted that we can use gramflour or multani mitti but how to use it with amla shikakai reetha shampoo and what should be the quantity?will it keep my hair soft as i usually get after using amla mix shampoo?

Reply
    Minaz @hairbuddha says

    Hi Swati, add more reetha and cook for long time and it will remove the oil.
    You can add 1 to 2 teaspoons of multani mitti, but first try without it.

Dear Minaz Madam

I came across your blog recently while searching information for avoiding hair whitening/graying and split ends.
My husbands aged 30 has lot of white hair and this problem has been there for him since a few years and myself aged 29 have lot of split ends and frizzy hair.
After reading in this website I have started including amla powder and black sesame seeds in our routine.Currently we are doing below mentioned things:
– having amla powder (about half tsp) every morning (before breakfast) along with mixture of honey (1 tsp)and lime squeezed(just less than a tsp) in 1 cup (8 oz)of warm water heated in microwave.Plan to increase amla powder quantity in this mixture to 1tsp soon.
– having black sesame seeds after about 30 mins of having above mixture,I soak black sesame seeds (about 1 tsp) in normal filtered water in night and discarding the water for soaking and then having just the seeds,by chewing them.
I just wanted to know if the above mentioned ways and quantities of amla powder and sesame seeds respectively are appropriate or do we need to change anything to get their benefits effectively.Also will the above mentioned things benefit my sister(aged 25) – shes having lot of hair loss as post effect of Jaundice.

Also please let me know if the amla powder – needs to be refrigerated after opening or it can be stored in pantry at room temperature in a glass bottle.

Thank you in advance.Take Care.

Best Regards
Varsha

    Minaz @hairbuddha says

    Hi Varsh,
    Why would you microwave amla mix? And honey should not be heated, as it changes it’s composition.
    Soaking sesame seeds is very good.
    You also want to look into this post on greying.
    Other things that help with greying: wheat grass juice, black strap molasses and eating fresh fruits and vegetables.
    Hope this helps.

Hi. Im 32 years old. After I had my third child 2 years ago, I started to get grey hair on my scalp and currently am. Ive started to get grey eyebrows which is gradually increasing
All my bloodtests came back normal except for vitamin d which was 48, when 50 is considered normal. Since childhood ive always been low in vitamin d. Currently im taking vitamin d and multivitamins. I apply the amla and coconut oil (home made using the amla powder and double boiler method) my scalp and eyebrows every night and keep it overnight. I also take a quarter teaspoon of amla and homey in qarm water everynight. I have been doing all these things for the laat one month. I still have my white eyebowns and the alrwasy black ones has darkened more stronger. Some hair on my scalp has white tips at the end. I would greatly appreciate if you could suggest anything that I need to change or add. Also I have a protien rich diet eg fruit n fibre cereal for breakfast, boiled eggs brown toast baked beans and cucumbers for main meals. Also almonds for snack time. Is that all ok. Ive been wating protein rich food for past one month too. Waiting to hear from you soon

Hi, Thank you for your information. Liked it. I have prepared the oil with curry leaves, methi powder and Amla powder. You mentioned about not overcooking the oil in your blog. I don’t think I have over cooked it. But what happens if I have overcooked? Does it have any adverse effect on the hair? And my proportion was almost equal of all. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Aryan, if you keep it on gas for too long it can burn and smell bad.

Hey Minaz!

Greetings..!!

Just read your article The Superfood For Hair, “Promotes Hair Growth”, amla increases scalp circulation, strengthen hair follicles and stimulate healthy new growth. Great stuff, I had no idea about one of your “Anti-dandruff recipe” was such a powerful method to cure dandruff.

BTW, what do you think about Inversion Method For Hair Growth? I’ve tried some similar things for Hair Growth and saw some good results, but not as great as I would like. Would love to get your thoughts on it.

Anyways, just wanted to reach out and say hello. Keep up the great work!

Regards,

Hello, I read your article about the benefits of zinc which can aid in hair growth . Why do you prefer zinc picolinate over orotate which I hear is the best.

Thanks,
