Here in this particular blog, I have covered everything about neem, its benefits, different options for you as hair mask, neem oil among many other options.

But here, the emphasis is on neem infused hair rinse, it is necessary for us to rinse our hair at least once a month with neem in order to get rid of fungus, bacteria and other accumulated substances stuck in between our hair that causes infections and scalp pimples.

  1. First step is finding out a neem tree (if people still finds it important to grow after all in urban areas).
  2. Cut a twig along leaves.
  3. Remove 25-40 leaves from the twig that you can later use as “daatun” or toothbrush.
  4. Pour a liter or 1.5 liters water in a large pan or utensil.
  5. Add neem leaves into the water and boil it.
  6. Wait, until water turns green, it takes approximately 20 minutes in medium flame.
  7. When it cools down, transfer it into an empty bottle or spray bottle.
  8. After shampoo, pour or spray it covering roots to the ends of your hair.
  9. Let it sit for 5-15 minutes and rinse hair with water.


You may use a spray bottle to damp your hair 1-2 hours before shampoo.
