Hair care with soapnuts

Hairs, they can be long and wavy, short and straight, frizzy and unmanageable, or smooth and shiny. Hair comes in many different lengths, styles, colors, and textures. Yet just about everyone — no matter what kind of hair they have — falls prey to at least one hair problem at some point in life. We know that many foods are loaded with toxic ingredients, but what you may not know is that shampoo and most of the other personal products we use every day are also full of the bad stuff. What’s more, they are not regulated by the FDA. This means manufacturers can put in anything they want to, including cheap toxic chemicals with highly harmful effects in the body.


Today, I am going to share with you the brilliant proven formula used for centuries and perfected by every Grandma in India for washing your hairs and prevent those problems. There are many alternatives for foaming products which can be used on our body and are safe. Soapnut or reetha is one of the most popular herbs in Ayurveda. It is all-natural, eco-friendly, cheap, and reusable. When it comes in contact with water, it creates mild suds that resemble soap. Many of us are well aware of the benefits of soapnuts for the hair.


  • The soapy texture of soapnut makes it a wonderful ingredient in many hair care and skin care products all over the world.
  • Vitamins A, D, E, and K found in this fruit are known to impart shine to your hair and make it smooth.
  • Since soapnut is antimicrobial in nature, it is a good option to cure bacterial and other scalp infections.
  • Soapnuts are the best for hair growth. Hence, they are used in many natural hair tonics and solutions. They are used as powdered or liquid reetha to achieve thick and bouncy hair.
  • Soapnuts also exhibit insecticidal properties that help in killing lice on the scalp.
  • Powdered reetha is known to fight various problems affecting the scalp, including dandruff.
  • Soapnuts tame dry and frizzy hair, condition it and make it more manageable.
  • Soapnuts also detangle your hair so that it can be easily styled.
  • The regular usage of reetha hair wash can reduce split ends to a great extent.


BubbleNut Wash is a hair wash manufactured by Mother Nature herself. It consists of crushed dehydrated ‘soapnuts’ that grow wild in forests in India. It lathers and cleans the scalp as good as any other shampoo in the market but without the use of any artificial chemical. I am using these products from past one year, and they are really satisfying and most importantly, they remind me the old methods which were used by our grandparents and gave a feel of nostalgic.
