I read that shampoos can be damaging to hair. Someone posted a comment on the use of Besan flour for your hair. Any thoughts on this.

Here's what Rewaj says about besan flour:
It's a shampoo, face scrub and hair remover powdered into one. There is more to besan or gram flour besides making great pakoras.

Though besan has been primarily used in the kitchen, it has other uses too. Gram flour or besan is considered safe enough to be used on an infant's head during their first head bath.

For healthy hair (all types)
Mix a cup of curd, two teaspoons of besan, an egg white and the juice of half a lemon. If you have very dry hair, substitute the egg white with a teaspoon of olive oil.

I never heard of the stuff before this. Thanks

I agree with the above message. Since ages this paste has been used in India as a natural shampoo.

I had like to add only one point here. Unless you have dandruff, avoid lemon as it becomes acidic with lemon in it.
