Brahmi powder is made from the dried leaves of a small plant known as the ‘miracle herb’ or Bacopa monnieri. It is rich in anti-oxidants and is a traditional remedy to make hair stronger, preventing split ends and hair loss and combatting dandruff and itchy scalps. This powder is usually used in combination with tulsi, neem and/or amla powder to make hair packs. Brahmi coats the hair follicles with a layer of protection and nourishes the roots.
