We all go through phases of hair loss in our life from time to time.
It’s not your fault alone..
There can be many factors responsible for hair loss such as stress, hormonal imbalance, poor diet, medication, poor hair hygiene, smoking, etc.
And during such time, we all prefer solutions that are natural and harmless for treating such hair loss.
The most effective way of treating hair loss is by solving the internal issues of the body, mainly by eating healthy and nutritious food.
Though we can treat hair externally, it is not enough. We have to ensure new healthy growth of the hair by taking care of hair roots and this involves taking the right nutrients (and of course less stress).
Whatever we apply on our scalp, we have to make sure, it doesn’t clog the pores but reach the roots to nurture them.
That is the reason I always recommend to do hot towel treatment or sitting in a hot place (preferably under the sun) for some time.
Also, whatever you apply on your scalp, do a gentle massage for some time. Doing it with harsh strokes may damage your roots permanently.
So, if you are suffering from hair loss issue then just have patience and pamper your hair and scalp with natural ingredients as well as increase your intake of Proteins, Iron, Zinc, B vitamins, vitamin C and drink a lot of fluid to ensure the essential nutrition you are consuming to control the hair loss and to boost the fresh healthy hair growth.
In this article, I have shared a very simple yet effective way to use fenugreek to treat all the hair related problems be it dandruff, premature hair greying, hair fall, and rough lifeless hair.
Why Use Fenugreek?
Fenugreek seeds are power-packed with nutrients which are very beneficial for hair.
They are rich in vitamin A which are essential for cell regeneration and secretion of sebum which prevents hair breakage.
Fenugreek seeds are also rich in vitamin B which is known as biotin.
Biotin plays a very important part of hair building and preventing hair loss.
Fenugreek seeds contain folic acid, iron, calcium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus, and potassium.
All of these help in preventing hair fall, hair thinning, balding, dandruff, etc.
Fenugreek is a good source of proteins and nicotinic which plays a very important role in building up our hair’s structure.
Regular use of this hair mask and hair serum helps in bringing back the lustre and shine of our hair.
This mask restores our hair shafts and prevents hair fall and dandruff.
This is my personal all-time go-to remedy to combat any hair related issues!
Additionally, I drink overnight fenugreek seeds water and eat the soaked seeds first thing in the morning twice a week.
In winters I follow this routine every alternate day.
This recipe requires;
- Overnight soaked fenugreek seeds
- 2-3 branches of fresh curry leaves
- 2-3 leaves of guava leaves
- Aloe Vera gel
- Cold-pressed coconut oil
- Rosemary essential oil
First, we will be making fenugreek miracle hair serum and then fenugreek hair revitalising scalp mask.
How To Make Fenugreek Hair Serum?
In a stainless-steel pan add the overnight soaked fenugreek and its water.
Add 2 branches of curry leaves
Add 2 to 3 guava leaves
And simmer this mixture on low heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn off the heat and cover it with a lid and let it cool down for half an hour.
After half an hour strain the mixture and add approximately 1 tbsp of freshly extracted Aloe Vera gel and stir well
In the end, add 8 to 10 drops of rosemary essential oil.
(*You can use Tea tree essential oil to it if you are suffering from dandruff or Lavender essential oil to get the soothing effects)
Stir well and fill this mixture in an empty spray bottle.

Make a centre partition and divide your hair into 2 parts.
Apply this hair mask on your entire scalp making small partitions and do a light massage for 5 to 10 minutes.
Spray the fenugreek hair serum on your hair and spread evenly and hydrate your hair with it completely.
Repeat the same procedure on the other partition and tie your hair.

Keep it on for half an hour and then wash with cold water and herbal shampoo.
