Coriander for Skin and Hair

Yes, this might sound a little weird but its true. Dhaniya (coriander) which is extremely useful in garnishing and which we, literally, sprinkle without really thinking helps in combating hair loss. And, there are scores of ways to ingest this veggie. So, whether you include it as part of your spinach-lettuce drink or banana-honey biotin drink, it will bring no change in taste and add more health.
You would be surprised at the amount of health benefits this supposedly insignificant veggie can provide. To name some, it reduces fever, improves stomach capabilities, lowers blood cholesterol, treats diarrhea and improves menstrual flow. It is rich in proteins, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamin C, iron, water and many more. Including it regularly in the diet provides a complete palate of nutrients into our bodies. 
To help with hair loss, you can also infuse your oil with dried coriander seeds. You can also make coriander hair rinse by boiling a bunch of coriander leaves in enough water and cooling it. And, who knew that coriander would be good for pimples, blackheads and dry skin too. At least, I did not. Take a little of coriander juice or fresh coriander leaves and grind it with a pinch of turmeric. Apply it on your pimples or complete face and wash off after it dries. So, now, coriander does not just remain some insignificant bunch of leaves lying around.

      wash your hairs everyday or use hankie or helmet (if you drive) to prevent hair from getting dirty! and, apply neelibrigandi a night before you wash your hair.

    Hi Swati, I have some bald patches and I have tried onion formula but it didnot work for me, so wanna try the coriander one , is it great for stopping hair loss, and regrowing hair, how to apply it , pls suggest, thank you

      actually onion juice should have worked but if you are prone to baldness then no remedy would work. you can definitely give coriander one a try!! it helps with stopping hair loss rather than inducing hair growth, though.

      grind the coriander and juice it. apply with help of a cotton ball on desired areas.

    How can use coriander water to avoiding pimple and dark circle to my dry skin.

    • says

      apply the juice of coriander on the pimples and let it dry. wash off.

      for dark circles, cucumber slices help. cut the slices, freeze them for 10 minutes and apply on your eyes for 10-15 minutes.
