I am a 35 year old working woman. I had been suffering from hair fall for more than ten years and tried various types of commercial shampoo brands available in the market. Some of the shampoos use strong chemicals for producing lather. Small quantities of them produce too much lather and need lots of water for washing the hair. I tried them and found they were not good. Then, I tried multani mitti and besan. I found these very good. They leave the hair clean, strong and shining and reduce hair fall. Sometimes, I also use dahi for washing the hair ( once in a fortnight) and this was also a very good experience. I am now regularly using only home based substances for washing the hair.
