    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."

    This years tomatoes were fabulous too. All the varieties were so tasty I ate tomatoes almost everyday this summer. Wonder if I got any growth from it?:look:

    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.

    Yea, I read this spanish guy request this to someone on yahoo answers, who wanted to grow out their hair fast. He said that his family members do it all the time and that it worked.

    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.

    I love tomatoes too. Sounds kinda messy, but I guess if I can put vajayjay cream on my scalp then this should be easy LOL
