Question Tomatoes for hair growth?

I'm on my mobile so I couldn't do a search

Sorry if this has been posted before. I was on earthclinic.com and someone suggested rubbing tomato puree on hair for growth and thickness. Has anyone heard of this?


"For hair loss, shine and thickness and growth, I was told to puree fresh tomatoes and apply to clean hair, preferably leave it on overnite and wash off in the morning. It is really messy and I have noticed the first time lost of shine and less breackage, however it being so messy I have not stuck to the regimen wich should be twice a week.The person that told me about this had a problem with her hair thinning and acne, she swears by it and has beautiful hair and skin. Also was told drink it for overall good health, processing it through a juicer by itself or with other vegetables, I will do so, as soon as get the juicer and write back."

i love fresh firm tomatoes but i can't stand the seeds. when i get my juicer i'll definitely look into tomato puree pre-poos.

i wonder if the lycopene in tomatoes has anything to do with it, or perhaps the acidity? if so, there's a brand of products called Say Yes To Tomatoes, sold in Target w/ the other natural products, that would be worth looking into.

Tomatoes In Your Hair

Everything from shampoo, cologne and candles are popping up on the market with tomato ingredients. Tomato paste is a known hair remedy that will help remove yucky green stains from hair that had a fight with pool chemicals and lost. Tomato sauce, soup or juice are great soaking agents for hair that contains hard-to-remove odors. Tomato based Ketchup will also work to remove hair stains in some cases.

Although tomato products are great for emergency hair remedies it is important to remember that tomatoes can be acidic and drying. Using fresh tomatoes regularly on the hair is not recommended.

I was wondering that too....well, it's always good to learn about how we can use the things that nature provides us. I'm not sure if I've ever heard of that brand. I'll look into it next time I'm in Tar-jay

Interesting...I was concerned about the acidity as well, but also thinking that there might be some benefit from it.
