In Indian Tradition, white turmeric is powdered and used a fragrant agent while preparing oilment. The herb also helps
a) promote hair growth
b) bring glow to the skin. When grinded together with turmeric, it acts as an antiseptic body scrub.
c) cure dandruff. Apply boiled white turmeric powder on scalp for a few minutes before washing the hair.
