      Hi As…thanks for visiting Durablehealth. Stating that Multani mitti can be used for both hair growth as well as hair removal indeed sounds confusing. However, it depends on the ingredients in use, how you prepare and how you use the clay. For instance the paste for hair removal is thicker and it is left to stay longer. Multani mitti on its own will not create a hair fall problem. Also note that not much scientific evidence exists to support the use of Multani mitti for hair. Some of the information is based on personal accounts.

      Multani Mitti is great for hair as well as skin. For hair removal the paste is very thick and applied in direction of body hair. And when it dries up, we rub it against the direction of the hair. This creates a lot of friction and bits of the body hair get removed. When done several times, this keeps removing the hair and slows down the body hair growth. Multani mitti is just there to pacify and soothe the skin. It does not cause any hair removal. Just the friction from rubbing causes the hair removal. So, it can’t cause any hair fall problem on the head because we rub it in gently. So no friction.

      Hi Ano, Thanks for your question. It actually wont stay for long but at least it will stay enough for your friends to notice especially when used correctly. As we have noted above, this is not the best hair straightening remedy but it will produce results worth mentioning.
