try castor oil , cold pressed and organic ...you can add rose otto oil , lemon oil, rosemary even peppermint essential oil for scent . when we were young mum used to get Indian 'swastika' brand of perfumed castor oil and our hair was lovely and strong , Dad used to mix it half and half with coconut for his hair.

flaxseed oil mixed with castor and cold pressed organic olive oil would give a lot of different nutrients to you scalp

 

That's a perfect mix. People add clary sage oil and cedarwood oil too.

And isn't swastika brand for Hindus?

you can get excellent shampoo bars made from reetey  from this UK place -

https://www.soapnuts.co.uk/collections/soapnut-soap-and-shampoo/products/ayurvedic-soapnut-shampoo-bar-90g

they also have other products check it out

Ordered reethey castille soap this week. Their olive oil soap lathers well but not long-lasting enough for my liking, unlike 5kg of reethey (bought aug. '17) that work better soaked then blended, not ground into powder (very strong, sweet aroma). Couple of my shells have nuts in them so want to grow my own soon.

Can you use Neem Oil? Its really good. It controls dandruff and moisturises hair.

VJKK VJKF

you can make your own neem oil which will also encourage growth by rehydrating neem leaves /powder  and make into a paste , taking a double boiler melt about one cup  125 ml coconut oil  then add four heaped tablespoon of the neem paste , cook until the oil takes on a deep green shade , stop and cool, strain out the leaves and you have your neem hair treatment...

Guys, no amount of this Oil or that Oil will help your Kesh.

The main problem you are having due to damaaged hair is coming from what you EAT.

Get into the habit of eating FRESH WHOLE FOODS regularly. Drink Plenty of water throughout the day to keep hydrated.

You will see the results improve rapidly within days, if not weeks.

It's important to monitor what we put in ourselves that determines our overall Health.

Yes, the Oils have an impact to a certain degree, but nothing compared to consuming Fresh Whole Foods. Just search online for examples.

Phase out the Fast food, fizzy drinks, sugars from your diet.

You will 100% see and feel the difference in your overall well being too.

Put it this way, no amount of Paper will cover the cracks, no amount of lies cover the Truth. Get your foundations right first, in our case - Correct DIET. You will benefit effortlessly.

first can't use castor oil uncut  need to thin it with another oil say sweet almond oil and you should use only a small proportion  .

Apply conditioner first whilst hair is dry for while before shower then twice wash with shampoo using lukewarm water leave the soap to act for longer . Can add apple cider vinegar to final cool rinse if it bothers you the cool water will seal moisture into hair

But what ever you guys so never use amla oil. In my opinion itd is good if you got short hair and want it to grow, but other than that never use it. I remember using it a few years ago, it smelled so much(it wasnt bad but smelled to much). My hair grew so much, it used to reach to my stomach but now it reaches to my knees cause of it.

Yes, but oils can help if you have dry hair then oil gives it that moisture and it won't break with repeated use. My mum used to put oil on my hair since I was 1-2 years old and now I need it because it feels different when I don't put oil on. When I wash my hair and it dries and before I put oil on, my hair is soft and silky and I still put oil on. Oil does nourish your hair and I do agree, diet has a big impact but oil is also good for your hair.

shampoo hair using reetha (soapnuts) and limes. it willl prevent premature greying, strengthen hair, remove dandruff/scalp acne/dirt/grease. see this link its a recipe by Sant Hari Singh Randhawa. (I use the same quantity but scale it down. So i take 2L water, 6Limes(400g), 40 soapnuts (200g) and boil till water quantity is reduced by half. I then cool it and rub the soapnuts to extract all the foam then strain the mixture and pour it into a large water bottle and shake it up before using.

 Avoid all chemical shampoos they contains loads of harsh and dangerous chemicals many of which are carcinogens and irritants. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/04/20/soap-shampoo-toxic-chemicals.aspx

You can oil your hair using sesame oil esp in a cooler climate like UK. its the best oil for skin/hair/teeth/bones as per Ayurveda. In a very hot climate you can use ghee/coconut oil as these are coolants. https://easyayurveda.com/2014/09/29/sesame-oil-better-hair-coconut-oil/

The only problem with coconut oil/ghee is the smell that lingers after washing. I know in the past Singhs used ghee to oil hair but haven't figured out how they got rid of the smell it produces. Ive been using sesame oil to moisture my body/hair and its wonderful and there is no nasty smell...you can get it from any desi shop its the ayumi brand https://groceries.morrisons.com/webshop/product/Ayumi-Pure-Sesame-Oil/294998011?dnr=y

You can even mix the sesame oil with some freshily squeezed amla juice as required to make your own amla hair oil.

Personally I use this homemade desi shampoo once a week and then oil my hair well. The rest of days you can wash your hair with water only.  This is the best way to protect your hair.

I mentioned sesame oil is really good. it is used traditionally for indian head massage too. For the added benefits of amla im am going to try and make this homemade amla hair oil using amla powder and organic sesame oil (which i have ordered from holland and barrett). The only downside is that it seems time consuming but if you make a large batch to last 6months+ then i think its worth it.

As mentioned previously commercial amla oil even from pantanjali/ramdev contain hazardous chemicals so its best to prepare it yourself.

 

 Also there are other health tip videos by sant hari singh randhawa which are good to watch. e,g 

To improve hair,eyes/vision, digestion, internal organs and to remove chronic diseases long term triphala use is recommended (for many years). It is better to make from scratch to be on the safe side and to ensure the health benefits as many commercial factories can prepare the herbs in a way that is destroys the active components and adulteration is always a risk. 

For long term use take 3-5g/teaspoon triphala powder in a cup of water and heat up like you are making tea (till water reduces by half). Cool down and drink at bedtime. ensure that you don't eat anything or drink milk 1hr before or after taking triphala. 

Based on my own research I have also started to take giloy(guduchi) once during the day (teaspoon in water,heat till reduced by half) which cures many diseases and acts as a rejuvenator. I recommend reading up about it https://easyayurveda.com/2014/05/18/different-uses-of-giloy-in-different-diseases/

IMPORTANT INFORMATION PLEASE READ AND DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH

Nature is best. If you want to know why people are suffering from disease/health issues just look up the ingredients that are in everyday products: eg toothpaste,mouthwash, washing up liquid, detergents, soaps, shampoos, oils, vitamin supplements, even pharmaceuticals and vaccines!

 Its so shocking but there are so many carcinogens/formaldehyde releasers/endocrine disruptors/ toxic ingredients that there is not one commercial product that i have found which is truly free from anything harmful. (I think this is done deliberately by design)

As a consequence I have been looking into natural alternatives and will share some examples of what i use. 

Hair: soapnuts with lemon as a liquid shampoo. organic sesame (till) oil post wash. (i did use coconut oil but stopped due to the smell and getting headache/dizziness)

Soap: pure olive oil soap...[ papoutsanis https://www.amazon.co.uk/Green-Pure-Olive-Soap-Papoutsanis/dp/B00BAWZPFM/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?s=clothing&ie=UTF8&qid=1515942539&sr=8-1&keywords=papoutsanis  ]

Toothbrush/toothpaste: Miswak (which is a datun) followed by oil pulling (with ghee/sesame oil).

Cleaning dishes/clothes/surfaces: soapnut liquid.

Deodorant: Lemon/lime. squeeze and apply juice to armpits. prevents body odour. i have been doing for years. 

Eat raw/organic foods. (inc organic atta, organic brown rice)

Drink raw milk. (People in London go to your local farmer's market (Ealing, Twickenham, Chiswick etc) Supermarket milk is homogenised (passes unchecked into bloodstream along with toxins and xanthine oxidase->linked to heart disease) pasteurised (destroys nutrients/beneficial bacteria/completely sterilises milk rendering it dead so synthetic vitamins are added which is what you read on the label.) 

Avoid refined sugar at all costs (WHITE and BROWN) and new artifical sweetners. Use jaggery instead.

Avoid table salt. Even himalayan pink salt i have suspicions about since its chemical composition is 99%NaCl, lacking Mg, K etc. Plus ive seen biotech/chem companies which only sell hazardous chemicals also selling this salt  for some reason, which sent the alarm bells ringing. 

 Find an organic, unrefined sea salt without any chemicals/anticaking agents, from an unpolluted water source like this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Coarse-Organic-Unrefined-TRADITIONAL-SEA-SALT-hand-colected-Premium-Grade-1KG/112037864235?epid=1123159891&hash=item1a15fa232b:g:DCwAAOSwTm9aNaoW

Avoid anything with MSG http://www.truthinlabeling.org/hiddensources.html  http://www.msgtruth.org/avoid.htm

Make ghee at home instead of using margarine/vegetable cooking oils/olive/rapeseed etc.

Don't be duped by fear mongering e.g all this low fat nonsense and the cholesterol myth. All these organisations spurting out health advice are funded by pharma industry so they have a vested interest in making you sick and stay that way so they can profit by putting you on their drugs for life. Scientific literature and 'evidence based medicine' is also compromised and is just used as propaganda to further their agenda (i know from experience). http://whale.to/  (good info on health)  https://medium.com/@kevinmgeary/is-the-american-heart-association-a-terrorist-organization-f1c8c98d28ea

Traditional/ ancient wisdom had to be crushed for the allopathic/pharma industry to be successful.

The propaganda has been so successful that sangat are asking for less karah parsad for fear of getting cholesterol!

People have been fooled so much but its harder to convince them that they are being fooled. 

Also cook in iron not steel or aluminum vessels because the metals leech out into the food. Metals like Al are linked to cancer/Alzheimers/dementia etc  and steel is an alloy with elements e.g. nickel,chromium,titanium which can cause similar problems. 

Stick to what our ancestors did and you cant go wrong. 

Realise that fear is the biggest weapon used to influence our behaviour and is an entry point for us to be exploited.

I know that tap water is really fully of nasty chemicals like fluoride so drink water based on the analysis by west midlands against fluoride action group website. http://www.wmaf.org.uk/index.php?content=content&parent=41&read=41&keyword=

Hard water can damage hair and body so i would suggest using a water filter in the shower or using an acidic rinse like lemon or acv to remove any build up/residue you get from hard water. 

I have heard about fluoride being good for teeth but from what ive read it actually damages the endocrine glands like thyroid and has been linked to mental illness so I avoid it by buying tesco ashbeck water. I know that namdharis use spring water and if i get a chance ive always wanted to stock up on some fresh water from the springs in Worcestershire.

very useful information wow! Didn't realise how much crap was in all those things. Im going make changes to ditch all chemicals and reap the benefits. 

did you know that smart technology like smart meters wifi emits loads of microwave radiation and its been linked to disease like cancer, heart and brain damage? its classed as a 2B carcinogen by the World Health Organisation.

    • He doesn't like this place, for reasons I have stated before. No offence to anyone here, but to outside this place, Sikh Sangat has a reputation of being a very "conservative" forum, and this is not my personal opinion.    Also, I disagree with your theoretical description of him, hes not like that.  If you wanna talk to him, you can create an account on r/Sikh.  I think you need to go back and read my comment from last time, that wasn't my opinion, that was a friend of mine (Naamdhari supporter) who said it, I even said in my comment that it wasn't my personal opinion.  As for my personal opinion on this forum, Its still too early for me to comment on things, however I didnt like the fact that a mod removed a link that I posted (to a form that I moderate) and claimed I was "targeting" someone, or even the fact that you got warned for some stupid reason and I called out that person but received no response. 
    • Tell him to make an account here. I would like to talk to this pakhandi baba. Sounds like the type who would promote mouth-to-mouth Simran, no offence to him. True. I hope you no longer hold the same opinions about Sikh Sangat as you once did.
    • I dont know his name. He goes by bulandpuri babaji. Hes really big in canada and getting famous in usa. His english isnt bad. And the accent, quite slight, just makes him sound more mystical and spiritual. Im sure hes on youtube.  I dont know much about him. But my favorite kathavachak, bhai sahib singh ji canada wale, follows him so he must be good person. 😄😃😆😅
    • But when someone spreads false parchaar and misrepresents Bani, then thats a serious issue that we as a community need to have a discussion on.    As I said before, I like to get out of my intellectual echo chamber and seek new ideas and diverse people. Ive ended up learning a lot, and its better to have a friendly debate with a friend, rather than get grilled by a person of another religion/dharma in public.   I would prefer we have an intellectually stimulating discussion rather than resorting to such measures...  
    • Bro, not taking p!ss here, but you certainly have some interesting friends. Most people have trouble finding sangat. You say he doesn't follow Singh Sabha but he sounds quite missionary-fied, or like a Dhandrianwala follower. Either way, if that's what he believes, let him, it's his jeevan. Although, he could probs use a talking to from a salotar.
