Even i have two daughters and i quite remember their mundan ceremony pretty well even when they are married now. Those days it was not a very popular ceremony for baby girls.But i did it for both my daughters as i was happy to have a child be it a boy or a girl!

Hi Latha, go for it even i have done and its gives you 100% cure from dandruff. Your parents are right. If you want to get rid of this problem on permanent basis go for it and see the change.... - Piu [View Message]

Shaving your head will only be a temporary relief from the problem. Other ways will take time but they at least will last long. There is no permanent relief to the problem but you can at least try to get relief from it.... - Neev [View Message]

Shaving your head won't help you get rid of dandruff. Dandruff is kind of an skin infection and once you hair will grow even a lil the dandruff will be back and you can not be bald for life of course. See a doctor instead.... - NN [View Message]

Shaving your head will not be a permanent solution to your dandruff problem as when your hair grow back the problem will mostly come back to. Instead go your medications and get a hold on it and then get rid of it.... - NN [View Message]
RE:hi friends
Yes there are many other ways to get rid of dandruff like you can consult a doctor about it and take lotions and medications for it. There are also many naturals ways that you can find out if you google them.... - Sakshi [View Message]
RE:Mundan ceremonies Boys vs Girls!
Yes even today some people keep boys over girls but it will only change if one takes an initiative like if you think celebrating functions for a girl is as important as it is for a boy then make a difference. Celebrate her too.... - Kanchi [View Message]
RE:Head Shaving Issues n Concerns
Mundan is a tradition that has been taking place in india since the time man remembers and i don't think there is anything that should worry you. The people that do it are well versed in their job and are careful enough.... - Monica [View Message]
