Luscious Locks: Unveiling the Power of Herbal Remedies for Healthy Hair

There is nothing better than traditional, age-old wisdom. In many cultures, women tend to pass on the culture to their future generations, and my case is no different. I am always documenting my mom's kitchen tips and recipes and herbal remedies - This is one of those! Today's traditional home remedy is for healthy hair.

India, with its rich heritage of natural remedies, has long been known for its holistic approach to wellness. When it comes to healthy hair, Indian herbal remedies have gained considerable recognition for their effectiveness and gentleness.

Here is one such remedy that can help you maintain vibrant and healthy hair.

What you need:

1 teaspoon curry leaf powder

1 teaspoon amla powder

1/2 teaspoon hibiscus flower powder

1 tablespoon aloe vera gel

2 teaspoons of sweet almond oil (optional)

1 tablespoon of yogurt

With these ingredients, we will create a hair gel which should stay in your hair for at least 30 minutes. Start with these proportions above. My suggestion is to start small and then increase the quantity as you see fit, and if you like it.

You can mix all these ingredients by hand. You can also mix all of them in a blender and turn it into an easy-to-apply paste. I recommend using the paste within 15-20 minutes.

Why these ingredients?

  • Curry leaf powder is for hair color. Ayurvedic science suggests that the Vitamin B in curry leaves helps hair follicles restore the natural color pigment and prevents graying of hair

  • Amla powder works on root health. It is made by grinding leaves of the Indian gooseberry and has a ton of other benefits too. It is rich in Vitamin C, has antioxidants and also makes your hair shine

  • Hibiscus powder helps with hair growth. Hibiscus flowers contain flavonoids & amino acids and regular application gives you an overall healthier scalp

  • Both aloe vera gel and sweet almond oil are great natural conditioners

  • Yogurt conditions and also binds all the ingredients into a paste

Like all traditional treatments, you need to add this one to your daily living. Do the treatment weekly or bi-monthly to continue having wonderful and healthy hair!
