As I already mentioned that am at my hometown and trying to go all natural. I have abundant time, and nothing much to do around here, so I started making my own skin and hair packs at home. This DIY brings back lot of memories from my childhood. I remember, when we were kids they used to make this oil at home. I remember the oily heads and painful shikakai/Reetha hair washes once a week. I am going to share an amazing hair growth oil which can be made easily at home.
I have very fine, thin hair. And I am very scared to experiment with the products especially when it comes to hair. I try to stick to natural or homemade products as often as possible. I do not use any conditioner as it makes my hair limp next day itself. Instead I oil my hair before every wash or apply a hair pack.
This DIY needs to be applied atleast an overnight or few days before washing. I suggest apply this when you have no plans and going to spend just at home. Lets see how to make this at home. Use coconut oil for better results. And if you dont get all the ingredients, you can add whatever is available to you.
- Coconut oil ( I used Parachute coconut oil)
- Curry Leaves
- Neem Leaves
- Henna/Mehendi Leaves
- Fenugreek/Methi seeds
- Garlic cloves
Heat the oil in a saucepan, and add all the above ingredients and turn off the stove. Cover this with a clean lid and set it aside till it cools off. All the ingredients turns black as they are cooling.
Once it cools down, strain and transfer into any bottle/container. The oil has greenish brown color.
Thats it. Your Hair oil is done.
Regular usage of this oil prevents hair fall, removes dandrufff, makes hair stronger and longer.
A quick read about the benefits of the ingredients in the oil.
All the 3 kinds of leaves are known for its hair benefitting properties.
Henna leaves make the hair stronger and prevents grey hair.
Neem leaves helps eliminate dandruff and any scalp infections.
Curry leaves stops hairfall, and helps in hair growth.
Garlic cloves has sulphur similar to onions and are helpful in the hair growth.
Fenugreek seeds, I dont think I need to write about it benefits. For smoother,thicker, shinier hair. It helps in getting rid of dandruff too.
You can add Amla/Gooseberry too to the oil. It is always advisable to make small potions of the homemade products.
