  1. Cleanser: Soak overnight handful each of dried reetha, amla, shikakai in 1lt water, simmer on low till water reduced by 1/2, cool, strain, use to wash hair for 5times. Friz.
  2. Dandruff: Twice a week apply warm coconut oil overnight, apply lime juice on scalp for 1/2hr, wash off. Apply henna once a wk.
  3. Lifeless hair: Twice a wk after applying coconut oil, wrap towel washed in hot h20 & squeezed around head like turban for 5mts. Repeat this 4times so oil is absorbed better. Wash with mild shampoo, massage conditioner lightly into hair, leave 10mts, wash off. In henna powder, mix in 4t each of l.j, coffee, 2eggs, 2t oil, enough curd so hair looks healthy & lustrous.
  4. Grey hair: Amla is said to check greying, so drink one raw amla juice+1gl water or add amla to the henna powder. Henna turns white hair reddish brown. It will not colour dark hair. Soak 1 handful dry amla in 2c  water overnight, strain water, but do not throw the water away. Grind the amla. To the henna powder, add the ground amla, 4tsp’s each of lemon juice & coffee, 2 eggs, enough amla water. It will add shine & substance to the hair. Take also vitamins B-complex & C.
  5. Hair loss due to excess oil: Wash hair everyday with very less shampoo diluted in water, finally rinse with 1/2 mug water+1lemon j. Apply henna once a week with 4t lemon j, 4t coffee, 2eggs, enough tea water for 1/2hr. If donot wish to use egg, add more tea water. Eat more fruits, raw salads, sprouts. Drink more water. Drink 1lemon j+1gl water 1st thing in the morning.


  1. Dry, lifeless: Use facial scrub once a week. If very dry skin, avoid soap & use a cleansing gel or cream. For body use mild, glycerine soap.

At night msg onto face for 3mts starting from bridge of nose, upwards in an arc on either side towards temples with both hands good nourishing cream+little water, wipe off with moist cotton wool. Apply sunscreen 20mts before going into sun. Aloe vera is a powerful moisturiser & an anti-oxidant, keeps skin soft & healthy. So use creams & moisturisers with aloe.
  2. Combination skin, pimples: Usually T-zone(forehead, nose, chin) is oily, while rest of face is dry. Wash face twice a day with medicated soap, then wipe oily areas with rose water+equal qty astringent lotion.

Apply on forehead & areas with spots rose water +sandalwood paste for 1hr.
  3. Double chin: Open mouth as wide as you can for 10secs, relax, repeat few times. Sleep without pillow. Massage area daily with cream from chin to down with both hands one hand following the other.
  4. Oily T-zone: Rub gently with small circular movements rice powder+curd+little haldi, leave it on for 5mts, wash off to keep pores free of clogged oil. Once daily at any time, apply 1t honey+1t lemon j+egg white on oily areas for 20mts.
  5. Glowing skin: After cleansing, wipe face with rose water with cotton wool. Use face mask once/twice a week.
  6. Blackheads: Scrub daily with rice powder+curd/rose water using small circular movements, leave on for 5mts, wash off. Once daily apply on face 1t honey+1t lime j+e.white for 20mts.
  7. Thin Waist: Join a gym or health club & lose weight under professional guidance Or, practise yoga daily. Do following exercises. First, lie on floor on back, feet together & arms at the sides. Lift legs 6″ above the ground & hold this position for a count of 10, lower legs to the floor. Repeat 4 times & increase gradually. Next, lie on floor, bend knees, keep feet flat on the floor, raise body to a half-sitting position, holding arms stretched out before you. Lower body to the floor, repeat 4 times. Eat fresh fruits, take clear soups (without butter), salads before the main dish, sprouts, curd, paneer from skimmed milk, lightly cooked vegetables. Avoid rich gravies. Cut down on intake of cereals. For example, 2rotis instead of 3 or only 1c cooked rice. For snack, take cucumber/carrot/any fruit.
