Ghee for Hair

Although hair is not essential to life, it is of sufficient cosmetic concern to provoke anxiety in anyone when it starts thinning, falling or bald patches. To a woman the sight of a comb covered with lost hair can cause mental strain.

  • The average hair growth is about 1.2 cm per month.
  • Daily 70 to 100 strands of hair fall down nothing to worry when it exceeds then we notice thinning hair and bald patches.
  • Most people lose their hair in 30’s because at that time hormones in body will change due to unhealthy diet, lack of physical activities and some other reasons.


  • Inadequate nutrition
  • Lacking in vitamin B 6
  • stress, anxiety, depression
  • sudden shock
  • unclean condition of the scalp (weakens the hair roots by blocking pores)
  • heredity


  • Desi Ghee (2 to 3 table Spoons according to the length and volume of Hair)
  • Almonds 4 to 8 Pieces


  • Take sufficient amount of Desi Ghee according to your Hair volume and length.
  • Cut 4 to 8 almonds in to small pieces. (4 for short hair and 8 for long hair)
  • Put the almond pieces in the Desi Ghee in a Container and heat it on stove till Desi Ghee melts and almond pieces will turn in to black color.
  • Remove the container from the stove and allow it to cool down to the extent you can tolerate.
  • Massage this warm mixture of Desi Ghee + almond on your head skin with gently with the help on finger tips
  • Leave for at least 3 to 5 hours and then wash Hair with warm water.


  • It’s best to use pure desi ghee that is a direct extract from Milk.

  • The stove degree should be kept at medium in the start and then low down after 60 seconds.
  • You can filter out the black almonds before massaging desi ghee in to your hair.

      For the average person, who simply wants to shampoo his or her moderately-soiled hair, warm water is the way to go. Warm water allows the shampoo to most effectively remove the dirt and oils in the hair, and helps the conditioner smooth the hair and rinse away cleanly.

      However, there are cases where hot or cold water can have an added benefit. When the hair is heavily soiled with build-up of products or waxy substances, using hot water provides a better clean from the shampoo used. The heat and moisture help to expand the cuticle layer somewhat and can help conditioners to penetrate more deeply when applied to hair warmed by hot water. In these cases, the conditioner should be rinsed using tepid or cooler water.

      Cold water rinses after shampooing and conditioning help to tighten up the cuticle layer and can be beneficial for those who have problems with oily scalp and hair. The cold water helps to tighten pores and slow down oil production in the skin for a period of time following the rinsing. (Source:

        I am in my early thirty and have the same problem as mentioned above. I have two queries pertaining to it:

        1) Can I mix the castor oil & almond oil with ghee and apply it to my hair?

        2) Currently I use a hair pack made of Shikakai & methi powder with banana before washing my hair. Should I continue with it?

    Dear sir , I just went through all the exchange of ideas and questions here. I wanted to know wether the cow ghee for hair growth will work if you have vitamin B6 , D E , eat deficiencies….

    I hv severe hair fall and I have been using medicated hair oils recommended by doc for about 5 years. But of late my hairs hv become more thinner and scalp is visible. What I have observed is that there is no growth in hair… There is heavy hair fall but there is no growth. Even the length of the hair is getting shorter . Please suggest wht has to be done.?

    Recently I read an article that a hormone testosterone is the cause for hair fall.? If so how to control this with food or naturally…?
    Thanking you,

      in natural conditions Ghee can last for more than 6 months so these preparation could also remain for long. Just test will change to salty after some time and may have some smell but one can use it for external purpose.

      if climate not favourable than make fresh for a month only.
