Reetha Hair Cleanser for Premature Greying


This product recipe is a natural, water-friendly remedy to reduce premature greying. It uses Reetha (also known as Haithaguti, Ritha, Aritha, Dodan, Kanmar, Rithe, and Soapnut) as a base ingredient. Proven to solve hair problems like dandruff, scalp infections and hair fall, Reetha is an ancient fruit whose origins date back to 6th century BC.

It acquires a soapy texture upon heating, which makes it a natural choice as a hair cleanser.
