This is a very unique recipe and I found it so very interesting. I came across this in Rima Soni's Q & A Trouble Shooter column of the Weekend magazine. I will be trying this very soon. Rima Soni is one of my favourite when it comes to the world of beauty and she vouches for this recipe which she got from some natives of Arizona who have shiny and soft hair while she was visiting there. Hope this works for everyone!!!


  1. Boil water in a pot on high flame.
  2. Put the parsley leaves in this boiling water for 20 minutes.
  3. Pass this through the blender to get a smooth paste.
  4. Apply this paste on your shampooed and clean hair the way you would apply henna paste.
  5. This parsley paste is a hair conditioner.
  6. It helps to balance the sebaceous glands, heals any scalp problems and boosts hair growth.
  7. Leave this on your scalp for 1 hour.
  8. Rinse off with water.
  9. Dont shampoo your hair again.
  10. Enjoy the silky and smooth texture of your hair!

Very interesting.. but from where I come from I know that if you rinse your hair with the boiling water and the presly leaves(or roots) mixture after your shower, will gives you a very shiny and healthy hair. THANX

This recipe was intresting and messy. I felt the results were not outstanding. Yes, I did see some improvement in shine. My hair did not feel any softer. I am intrested to know if the Native Arizonans refered to in the description are Indians. Their hair is naturally shiny.This recipe did not turn out like I expected. It is not bad at all. It is just not for me. Possibly I am at fault for the results. I could not get a paste formula. It was more like thick soup. Maby I used too much water.
