   The Swapna    


Swapna Hair Enricher is an Unique Invention. It has demonstrated ability to provide

Hair loss Control + Dandruff Remedy + Hair Gain / Regain 

It is a haircare simplified,  proven, daily use, hair protective cream. It has anti itch property and  non oily look. All these features mean that Swapna saves / safeguards the hair and adds a bit more.

Invented in 1991, it is a time tested product now.  It is suitable for both males and females above age 3. The invention is called 'Swapna' in short, in this site.

This site presents scientific proofs for the above stated 3  Major benefits


1. Major Benefit of Swapna - Hair loss Control and Hair Gain / Regain / Growth


The Categorical, Scientific and unchallengeable proof for Hair Enrichment




 May 1993 - Age around 65


April 1995 - Age around 67


July 1995 - back view

In the 1993 Photo, You can sport the Leucodermia mark at the parting. It is an authentic identification mark for the lady.


The Photos prove Hair Loss control besides growth


She has suffered considerable hair loss as one can note from the 1993 photo. She wanted Swapna to avoid further loss. And she got much more, despite being a Senior Citizen.

The 1995 photos clearly show 'improved hair density'.  Density can improve, only if the hair gain is more than the hair fall.  If hair fall was greater than or equal to hair gain, the density could not have improved.


Enricher: Hair Nourishment and Growth  

Look at the back of the May 1993 photo. There are new,  short and protruding hair at the back - very short to comb down. The new hair strands are all due to Swapna as she started using Swapna around Mid 1992. 

The improved density nearly covers this Leucodermia mark in the 1995 photo.  New hair have come all around this mark. The protruding short hair at the back have grown and got nicely combed down. The mid front area has got nearly covered with regained hair / growth.


Now look at the July 95 photo, placed on the right side of this page.

The new hair, got with Swapna, have been roughly assembled on the left side of the photo. These new hair got with Swapna, have grown about 30 cms / 12 inches long in 2 years. The old hair have lengthened further and the tip/ end is below the back rest of the foldable chair. The lady sports 2 different hair lengths!.          [Traditional Hindu / Orthodox women never cut the hair]

The above comparative photo proofs, abbreviated as CPP, is an emphatic, Scientific, confirmation for Hair Gain as well as Hairloss Control. We present 2 more sets of photo proofs in this site -  Hair Gain page


Hair Loss Control

Swapna controls Hairloss in majority of cases within 4 to 6 weeks. The impact rate was over 90% during our trials till 1994. This benefit is got by Hereditary Baldness prone persons also.

Hair loss and Hereditary Hairloss  pages elaborate this benefit.


Additional Proof

Users handwritten Reports / reviews / testimonials

Swapna is a well researched product. Only after 3 long years of trials with actual users, the product was introduced in the market with an Ayurvedic product license in April 1994. Refer Ethical Tests page for details.

These early Users of Swapna had to submit a handwritten report. They had confirmed the 'hairloss control benefit of Swapna. The relevant basic details and comments of these early users are presented in the Testimonials page,


Major Benefit 2:  Hair Growth / Gain


Swapna has the ability to nourish the hair and promote gain and growth as proved above. Gain / regain is a gradually accruing benefit. One has to use Swapna for 2 years or more.

Hair regain is conclusively proved with 3 sets of Comparative photo proofs [before and after photos] in this site. These 3 photo proofs are in  Hair Gain  page for easy reference.


Major Benefit 3 : Dandruff Remedy


Swapna has demonstrated ability to  control dandruff  within 30 days. 

Proofs are in  Dandruff  page. Dandruff leads to excess hair loss. So control of dandruff is necessary

Despite the popularity and convenience of anti dandruff shampoos, not many have the power to control dandruff. That is why dandruff is spreading wide across the World. refer  Anti Dandruff Shampoos

Unique Invention


To the best of my knowledge and belief, there is not another comparable product to Swapna in India or across the World that can give the above 3 major benefits.

I have gone through very many Dermatological Books in the British Library between 1992 to 1998. [refer Bibliography]. I did not come across even one single photo proof. And I have provided 3 on this site. I have not seen anything noteworthy on the web in the last 15 years.

Swapna scores over Minoxidil and Propecia preparations in several  features. For details, refer to Compare1 . These are widely known, US FDA approved hair regain formulations for hereditary baldness.

There are of course thousands of personal care / Cosmetic products with baseless claims lacking proof / supportive evidence. Almost all buyers of Swapna were / are unwitting victims of personal care products.

Google may present a Million or more results for hairloss control, hair gain, hair damage and so on. If you look for hairloss control or say hair gain with 'supportive proofs' or 'backed by proofs'. 

This site would come up in top 10 results.   [as on Jan 10, 2017]

'backed by proofs' is a crucial requirement for purchase and use of a haircare product. [The site is not mobile responsive. So, bookmark the page, if you like it. We are not in Facebook, Twitter, Quitter and such other Social sites. Are others not social ? ]]

Hair Loss - background details

Hair Lesson from History

Hairloss has plagued Mankind since Egyptian Civilisation / last 5000 years. Indian Civilisation, which is the second oldest, have grappled with the problem for a longer time compared to the West.

Amongst Epics, only the Indian Mahabharat mentions of Draupadi, who swore by the hair confidently and kept that promise after 13 long years. It means to me that the writer / people at that time, whatever that be, had the expertise / confidence and means to care the hair in the right way. It is unfortunate that the  secret got lost somewhere down the line in the subsequent Centuries

These details indicate that it is not proper to assume blindly that the 'West knows everything about haircare'. [To know more, refer Bibliography].


Lesson 2 - The Present  Medical Reality


Dermatology and 21 other major Medical Therapies do not have any control / delaying aid or mechanism for hereditary hairloss - or for that matter, non hereditary hair loss as well. The same is true for dandruff too. 

Such being the case, it is baseless to believe that the high decibel Cosmetic products from Personal Care Companies and Trichologists have surpassed the Medical Therapies.


Lesson 3 - The Cosmetic Mirage


As per a snippet published in Business India in 1996, 40% of the public suffer from hairloss. dandruff or both. As of 2012, this percentage has shot up beyond 60%.

These figures categorically say that Casual hair care and impulsive purchases of Cosmetic products based on shallow presentations are avoidable basic steps for hair loss problems. To amplify, you would loose hair, money and Time, if you believe in some advertised excuses

Diet / Food, Pollution, Stress / Tension, Blood Groups, Proteins, Vitamins, Skin Colour, demonetisation and TV programs have nothing to do with hair fall in over 99% of the cases.

Likewise hair products containing Almond Oil, Egg, Keratin and so on, cannot help. Yet many products indulge on "Protein blitz' to sell them. 

The body makes 40,000 Proteins from the food that we normally eat. None knows that right, crucial, magic Protein. Till then, Protein means Money, loss or gain,  but not hair. You cannot find mention of any one factor in Dermatology books. I failed to find any [simple inferences from Lesson 1 above].


One other Caution - Hair Oils


Many popular Indian Hair Oils contain  Mineral Oil to reduce cost. It has no nutritional value. It is very penetrative compared to Vegetable Oils and may nullify the natural ingredients that the body may be providing to the roots. [I think mineral oil makes Vitamin E ineffective. You have to check this last point]

Please refer to J & J Baby Oil to know more about mineral oil and Petroleum Jelly. You can refer to J&J's US website - they do not use it in baby products in America. They do it in India


How did I invent ?


'Early bird catches the Worm' !   Fine !   But why did the worm die ?

Did it get up earlier to reach the death spot in time or had a late night out ? Such funny / interesting thoughts spark in me, once in a while, since 1960.

The special ingredient behind Swapna, is Common Sense Plus / csp, a word used perhaps in Harvard Business Review of July-August 1966 issue that gave me the confidence to pursue Management Education at IIM, Ahmedabad in 1967 after a Master's degree in Chemistry

As per Hindu Epic, Mahabharata, Draupadi swore by her hair and kept that promise after 13 long years. A poet does not write in a vacuum. And in England, Queen Victoria lost despite her wealth. Alexander Pope wrote 'Rape of the Lock', a mock Epic, which I had to read for my degree course.

The Contrast indicated to me that ancient Indians knew more about hair care than the later generations. Something got lost with passage of time and or substituted with non functional or counter productive ingredients.

With these basic approach in 1990 and the lesson learn from the drubbing I got with Cosmetic products, I invented Swapna in 1991


Other Site details

Swapna means Dream in Sanskrit and Tamil, my mother tongue.  That is the term that came to my mind, when I spotted a few black hair in my bald forehead in July 1991 - at the age of 48, in a near total, hereditary bald head that had always donated hair since 1965.

I started using the invention of mine in May 1991 and the impact was dramatic - dreamed about new hair. That was enrichment for me in a barren land.

The term Hair Saver Plus summarises Swapna in a way. So it continues to be  the name of the site.

All the photos in this site are by amateur photographers except Jan 1995 photo of the inventor. The photos were taken in the open area, without precise, pre defined parameters for Camera, angle, Sunlight intensity, film used and so on
