Natural Homemade hair growth oil
After months and months of searching, I finally found natural ingredients that can help grow hair quite significantly- if used consistently of course. I knew there was something out there worth finding; hence I didn’t give up on it. I really wanted to help people especially my sister who told me that her hair is falling out. Then, one day when I was just sitting and minding my own business, a very good friend of mine started talking about curry leaves and how they could help with hair growth ( of course she didn’t know about my search). That same day I went home and read up on it; and found out that this was in fact true. I went on and continued my search and found more natural products. You see I truly believe in what Rumi the poet had said; “what you seek is seeking you”. And because I knew what I was looking for, it was only a matter of time that I found it.
Funny thing is I was also looking for someone who could trust me enough to use this oil to see if it actually works as it says on paper. Someone who would take it seriously and apply the oil consistently without being sceptical. I hear you say-did I find that someone then? Well, even better! That someone found me. This is a pure example of what Paulo Coelho said in his famous book the Alchemist- “and when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it”
For obvious reasons I’m not going to mention her name here, but girl if you’re reading this; thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! I’m so ever grateful I met you.
Without further ado- here are the things you need to make the oil:
- 3 tablespoons of raw organic coconut oil
- 2 teaspoons of Jamaican Black castor oil
- 3 tablespoons of sweet almond oil
- Small pot to mix things in
- 1 tablespoon of fenugreek seeds; and
- About 10 dry curry leaves. I use dry leaves and if you can find fresh ones that’s even better.
- Add the coconut oil, the castor oil and the almond oil to the pot. Then warm it up at a low heat for about 7 minutes. Make sure you don’t burn your oil.
- Then add to it the fenugreek seeds and the curry leaves.
- Mix everything up whilst slowly stirring your mix. Do this for about 7minutes.
- Then switch off the heat and let it cool down.
- Sieve out the leaves and the seeds before using it.
How to apply it:
- Before applying make sure your oil is warm- but not hot
- Then massage your scalp with it for bout 5-10 minutes. Put a plastic bag to retain the heat
- Keep it on for as long as you can, then wash it out with organic shampoo. I wash mine with a 100% organic black soap. But I will make my own shampoo soon, so stay tuned.
Where do I get my ingredients from: Amazon is the best place to purchase your products. I bought my fenugreek seeds and curry leaves from Amazon. They were really cheap. But if you’re lucky enough and have a local Indian shop- you can get it from there too. If not you can always go to India! I joke! I get my almond oil and the black castor oil from my local African hair shop. They have it on Amazon too.
1: when washing hair, don’t apply the shampoo all over your hair. We’re meant to only apply it on the scalp and not the hair strands. * sigh* you didn’t know that did ya?!
2: Make sure your ends are always moisturized. For this always apply coconut oil. For the rest of your hair all you need is water to keep it moisturized and a bit of oil. You don’t need a lot of it. Don’t wet your hair though- all you need is a spray bottle and spray your hair with water.
I have a lot of baby hair and very weak too! I shaved my edges 10 years ago hopping that they will grow stronger. But they were a no show. Since I started using the oil I noticed that my edges are actually getting stronger and fuller. I know right?! I don’t have a picture to show you now because I’m lazy, but I will put up a picture soon. My dear friend used it for almost 6 months; 2-3 times a week.
Here’s my dear friend’s before and after picture:
