How To Use Curry Leaves For Hair Growth

Most of the time, hair fall is directly related to follicle health. Hair follicles get clogged due to factors such as an oily scalp, pollution, and the build-up of products. The clogged follicles leave the scalp feeling irritated, causing itching, dandruff, and hair fall. Curry leaves can effectively treat these problems because of the following properties:

  • Curry leaves are rich in antioxidants that moisturize the scalp while getting rid of dead hair follicles.
  • They are a good source of proteins and beta-carotene, both of which prevent hair loss and thinning.
  • The leaves are also rich in amino acids that help strengthen follicles and keep them healthy.

 

As A Hair Tonic

What You Need

  • A handful of fresh curry leaves
  • 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil

What You Need To Do

Pour the coconut oil into a pan and add the curry leaves to it. Heat the oil until you see a black residue forming around the leaves. Stand at a safe distance away from the pan while you do this as the oil is likely to splutter. Turn off the flame and let the mixture cool down. Once the tonic is cool, strain it. You can now apply it to your hair.
Gently massage your scalp with your fingertips while applying the oil. Concentrate most on the roots and tips of your hair. Leave it on for an hour and then rinse it with shampoo.

 

As A Hair Mask

What You Need

  • A handful of curry leaves
  • 3-4 tablespoons of Yogurt

What You Need To Do

Throw the curry leaves into a blender and blend until you get a thick paste. Add one tablespoon of the curry leaves paste to 3-4 tablespoons of yogurt (depending on the length of your hair). Mix the two ingredients well until they form a paste of smooth consistency. Massage your scalp and hair with this hair mask. Ensure that all of your hair is covered in it from the roots to the tips. Leave it on for 30 minutes and wash it off with shampoo. Alternatively, you can substitute the yogurt with 2 tablespoons of milk.
