      • i can imagine…whenever i use it for cooking, i cant wait to dump it in and cook it..the smell is terrible..but i guess if it reallt helps in hair loss control , then all is maaf1 🙂

  1. yup before yur friends starts running away its better to try these at home ..my one of fav is mixing aloevera juice with shampoo..it conditions hair so well.

  2. zara di
    if u wanna buy aloe vera juice, then go for stabilize juices (preservative free).they are better for both enternal n external usage 🙂 ,one such brand is ALTIS ALOE JUICE. its for rs.300 for 500 ml(approx.) but a safer option.if interested then search in medical store for it :-))

  3. Wonderful article! I’m gonna try a few recipes from here. The Tonic recipe with Shikakai is something my mom did for us until we were in school, and we never had any hair problem! Hair was thick, glossy and strong.

  4. Thanks Shivani… just one query… I’ve always known lemon to have bleaching properties since we often use it for skin care to remove tan, etc. So, won’t it do the same to our hair – as in lighten the natural colour? Can it lead to greying of hair or it’s safe?

  5. my hair is really fine infact i was thinking of searching some remedies on internet when this came. I’d try the 1st egg shampoo pack.
    btw i have terrible allergy with onions i so love cooking but then chopping onions give me headache everytime. 🙁 So i better stick to egg or orange or amla tonic shampoo they should do good.

  6. 😛 i dont wear specs at home all the time na thts why may be. But i am definitely some how allergic to it.
    This time I am thinking of changing shampoo my hair has turned quiet dry this year even after oiling. Ana can you suggest me a good moisturisng shampoo, i tried dove didnt like it . Dove seems to leave some residue on my head:(

    • Shreya… you already have fine hair. Dove will make your hair even more thin and cause severe hairfall… Im a victim :pain: Please stay away from dove! TC

        • Sorry shreya if im not able to help you much… i just got away from dove and in a process of finding a better shampoo… right now using Fab india Aloe vera shampoo + conditioner… it doesnt control dryness much when using it alone. I used bio musk root hair pack from biotique and then used this shampoo and conditioner( My hair was soft, shiny and bouncy) try it :-)) my next try would be bio walnut bark shampoo or fab india avacado shampoo… if i find something better for my hair.. i’ll let you know for sure shreya dear…

  7. hello ashu,
    u try out onion shampoo, its very easy,just blend one onion with a little water in mixer n seive the juice in any of ur regular shampoo, any brand. keep in dark for 15 days n ready to use dear 🙂
