Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment
Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.
Caution: Don’t let this enter your eyes – they will STING like nothing else has.
Generally when I wash my hair, I end up losing a lot of strands. I hardly lost any hair when I used this. It worked just as well as shampoo and removed all oil and dirt from my hair leaving it squeaky clean. My hair looks healthier, thicker and shiny. It also separates hair strands giving me a lot of volume which I am loving. I am planning to skip using regular shampoo & use only this for the next 2-3 months to see if it helps stop hair fall.
