      Hi June, you can get the mustard oil from your nearest supermarket (I think you will have to go to Indian section of the supermarket to get one) or you can buy it online as well. I would recommend buying this (Dabur Mustard Oil).

      Hi Rose, any natural remedy can take some time to work. I would recommend using this mask for at least 2 months to start seeing any positive effects. Also, hairfall depends on the shampoo and water you use to wash your hairs. Try not to use a harsh shampoo to wash your hairs. Also maintaining a healthy and natural diet helps in reducing hair fall.

      Hi Shamima, You can use mustard paste but don’t you think the mask can stick to your hair and can be hard to remove in the shower without excess hair fall? It can also give a strong smell to your hair. I will suggest you to use oil but it depends only on you and how you handle this process. Use yogurt or curd instead of milk, it’s more moisturizing and great for hair.

    Hi, can you tell me if the hairmask is easily removable, I used masks previously but hair masks tend to create buildup and make my scalp really itchy and me going crazy, so if there are chances of buildup, I would rather not go for it. Also, can I apply the mustard oil as it is to combat dandruff?
