    Hi Ilites,

    Many of the receipes for hair care involves shikaki(plus herbs) powder and also since I'm allergic to shampoos, i would like to use home made powder.
    I stay in Bangalore and till date i couldn't find a mill that helps grind shikakai powder.(though there were few other flour mills for rice/wheat etcc.. but they refused to grind shikakai because it would affect the machinery).

    If any of the fellow Ilites are aware of (or are used to grind ) mills in Banagalore that grinds shikakai, please do let me know with landmarks.(if any in malleswaram or any other location is also fine)

    This would be of great help....

    Thanks,
    Devoue

    Hi dear
    Do you have old manual grinder( In olden days people grind for making rice powder and channa dal powder)
    If so then in that make the shikakai + dried lemon cover to coarse powder.
    Then grind this with dried rose petals + methi seeds + dried hibuscus flower + moond dal + dried hibuscus leaves + dried curry leaves.
    It will have a funny smell but good for scalp and hair growth
    This way it is faster and fresh also.
    I do the same
    Regards
    Mrs.Naresh
