Now for an Ayurvedic hair wash, don’t expect it to lather just as the chemical loaded shampoo products available in stores because an Ayurvedic hair wash may not look that appealing to the eyes! But the benefits of the same Ayurvedic hair wash is considerably more than any shampoo available in stores!

How to prepare Ayurvedic Hair Wash-

Well, I am talking about a simple hair wash which can be used thrice a week to give the strength and nourishment to the scalp! This is not an Ayurvedic shampoo as that needs a lot of time to prepare and filter!


  • One can get the above mentioned  dry ingredients from any Indian grocery store or may also opt for the powder forms of each of the ingredients in case you don’t want to create a mess in the washroom!
  • Soak the ingredients in small quantities overnight in water. One can also bring water to boiling temperature and pour the dry ingredients in it and boil for a while! Leave this mixture overnight and later on in the morning, use this as your hair wash fluid.
  • Initially, you may not like using it because of the strong herbal smell and the residue left on the hair strands. But if you are suffering from major hair fall issues or scalp problems then probably this is the best remedy to keep a check on these hair problems!

Hope you like this hair wash recipe! I am definitely looking forward to try fenugreek powder along with shikakai & reetha powder in the coming days before I turn completely lazy in winters! :-p
