Do you wake up to hair coating your bedsheets and pillows? Is there more hair on your comb than on your scalp? Did your hair fall rate cross the 100 strands per day mark, ages back? Then, what you need is a deeply therapeutic herb-infused hair oil.
Now, let's be realistic here. There are no magical solutions that can give an overnight result. Though this herbal hair oil has proven to be effective in curbing hair loss, it will take a considerable amount of time to completely stop hair fall and promote new hair growth.
So, let's take a look at the kind of herbs used in this DIY herbal hair oil recipe and how it makes a difference.
Some of the ingredients used include onion, curry leaves and olive oil. Onion happens to be a powerhouse of sulphur, which is known to stimulate blood flow and promote regeneration of new hair follicles.
Curry leaves contain amino acids that prevent graying of hair, and olive oil has a high ratio of antioxidants that seal cuticles, prevent breakage and cleanse scalp!
Now that you have the gist of the kind of properties the herbal oil comes with, let's get down to the method on how to make the herbal oil!
- 2 to 3 hibiscus flowers
- 1 tablespoon of curry leaves
- 1 onion
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of almond oil
- 1 tablespoon of fenugreek seeds
- 2 vitamin E capsules
- 10 drops of lavender oil
Peel, cut and extract the juice of an onion. Crush the curry leaves, tulsi leaves and hibiscus flowers into a fine paste.
Heat all the oils, except lavender, in a pan on low flame. After 30 seconds, add in the onion juice and keep stirring.
Add in the paste of curry leaves and hibiscus flowers. Cut open the vitamin E capsules and add the gel to the oil. Let it simmer for 5 minutes.
Add in the fenugreek seeds. When the seeds start to pop and turn in colour, turn off the flame. Let it cool in room temperature.
Add lavender oil in the end for fragrance. Strain it and store it in an air-tight container. Let the oil hibernate in room temperature.
Divide your hair in small sections and apply the oil through your hair and scalp. Massage it for 10 minutes, using the soft pad of your fingers. Let the oil sit for an hour before rinsing it off with a cleansing shampoo.
Apply this therapeutic oil once a week diligently to see a visible difference in your hair fall rate.
