Hair Removal on a Child
Apply a besan (gram flour, chana flour) haldi – turmeric powder paste. Take 75% besan and 25% haldi. i.e. for 3 tsp of besan mix 1 tsp of haldi. Both the ingredients are available from Indian grocery stores.
After sometime when it starts to dry, scrub it off gently. This would gradually reduce body hair over a period of time.
It is not possible to give an exact time for hair to vanish. In some parts of India, this is done for about 1.5 months to new born babies on whole body and they are almost hairless.
Massage the baby with almond oil or any other oil.
(Note: You can use besan haldi paste and oil or wheat flour and ghee paste massage for
even a new born child for 2-3 months, every alternate day. If the baby has too much hair, they will vanish over a period of time.)
