When I was sharing my Shikakai powder, many were asking some solution for hair-fall. So I thought I will share another grandmas home-made solution for hair-fall. This is a pouch which consists of 8 major herbs required for a healthy hair growth. Our grandma insists us to use this as our daily combing oil. May be because of this we used to have healthy thick hair in our childhood. Time passed on and as I grew up, started using all cosmetics available in the markets which are easy to be applied and readily available. The results are:
- Pre mature greying
- Hair fall
- Dull hair
I was also a person who was affected by all these problems. Use of chemicals are not the only reason for these above mentioned issues, its because of our lifestyle, pollution and atmospheric changes too.
Just then my grandmas herbal oil struck in my mind which she used to make for us. I called her and asked for the recipe. Thank you Grandma! for sharing this recipe with me. Yes!!! it worked again. Wondering how come our ancestors found solutions for all problems with items which are connected to nature. Now I see a drastic reduction in my hair fall. Just thought that I would share it with a bigger community.
How this works
The below 8 natural and basic ingredients are added and slowly heated in the natural sun light, it provides the necessary nourishment needed for the hair.
- Methi seeds – Treats Dandruff and acts as body coolant
- Dried Amla – Improves the texture of the hair
- Surul Pattai/Alkanet root – Naturally colours the hair
- Dried Hibiscus flower – Gentle cleanser and prevents hair shedding
- Mehandi cake – Prevents premature greying and conditions the hair
- Dried Curry leaves – Repairs damaged roots n reduces hair fall
- Rose petals – Tightens the scalp
- Vettiver – Fragrant and coolant
How to prepare
Take a glass jar/bottle with lid and drop this herbal bag in 300 ml normal coconut oil. Pour oil which the necessary to cover the bottom part of the pouch and place it under the sun for 4 to 5 days. The warmth and light from the sun will help to infuse the herbal properties into the oil. The oil will turn into light red colour. Now you can add the rest of the oil and use it. This oil mainly helps in premature greying of hair and makes the hair denser and smoother. It reduces dandruff and hair-fall too. This herbal oil can be kept till 4 months.
