    Default Adhimadhuram/Liquorice

    Adhimadhuram ( aka Mulethi/Liquorice/galbra/yashi madhuka/Latin: Glyceyrrhiza Galbra ):

    Baldness
    Method I
    1 Take 2 tsp of Atimadhuram [liquorice]
    2 tsp of seeds of Dhatura [Oomathankai/Latin name: ? ] ---- Caution: It is poisonous
    A little safron
    1 tsp of milk cream
    Make it a paste
    Fry it in 2 tsp of coconut oil till charred
    Apply on bald patches

    ----------------------
    II (Another method)
    4 Grind 1 tsp of root pieces of adhimadhuram (liquorice) with
    ¼ tsp of safron and 1 cup of milk
    Apply this paste on head patches at bed time continuously
    ---------------------


    Hair oil (to stop shedding):

    Take a good qty of coconut oil,
    add some castor oil into it, put it in a iron pot and boil it till it smokes slightly.
    Now, make a paste of the following herbs: 5 petal Hibiscus,
    henna,
    Curry leaves,
    little Jeera,
    Fenugreek seeds,
    Vettiver (this is a root),
    Vallarai powder (also called Brahmi - a little - this is also a herb),
    Karisalanganni powder (also called Bringhraj - this is a herb which has darkening effects on the hair and it makes the hair voluminous and healthier),
    also add adhimadhuram (also called mulethi or Liquorice – Glycyrrhiza Galbra - this is a herb which cures itch and prevents dandruff).
    Add little water and grind it to a paste. Now, switch off the boiling oil, and add this paste slowly.

    Jeera (Cumin seeds) actually enhances blackening of the hair - some people just boil jeera in coconut oil and use it as a hair darkener (I read this somewhere - don't know if it is true)
