FENUGREEK

Fenugreek is one of the most valued herbs in Ayurvedic practice, where it is used in both beauty and medicinal applications. Fenugreek benefits for hair include the purported ability to boost hair follicle growth, fill in empty shafts, and even makes straight hair look fuller, have more body and even add a little curl to it. This is because the herb supposedly helps reduce breakage and drying, which permits moisture to easily infiltrate the hair and alter its form. A large number of natural shampoos and conditioners contain fenugreek for two significant benefits — locking in moisture to make it more flexible and blocking out humidity to make it fuller and curlier.

How to Use:

There are several ways to use fenugreek to make your hair thicker, healthier and more beautiful.

First Option: Try soaking the seeds in boiling water and letting them soak for several hours. Then crush the results into a thick paste, which can be massaged into the scalp.

Second Option: Grind (use coffee grinder) the dry seeds into a powder.

Third Option: You can buy the fenugreek powder online.

I use fenugreek powder and make it into a paste.
½ tsp. of fenugreek powder
¾ cup of unsweetened coconut milk

Mix and apply the paste to the scalp. Then cover your head with a plastic cap for 30-45 minutes. Wash your hair and scalp with a gentle shampoo. Use 2-3 times a month as a moisture treatment, as using it to much can leave a residue that tends to dull the hair.
