If you do not want a store-bought tonic, here is a recipe for one you can make at home.
DIY – Homemade Hair Tonic For Hair Growth
What Do You Need?
Mustard oil, fenugreek seeds and of course you should know how to work with the stove!
What To Do?
- Take around half a liter mustard oil.
- Pour all of it into a pan which is to be heated later.
- Take some fenugreek seeds. (you needn’t do the heart art like me)
- Drop half of the shown quantity (in the heart) in the pan containing oil.
- Ignite the stove and place the pan containing oil on low flame. Do not boil the oil by keeping it on high flame. Wait for the seeds to slowly turn black. That would take just about 10-15 minutes.
- Now turn off the stove and put the pan aside for 30 minutes or so, allowing the oil to cool down.
- After the said time, sieve out the oil in a bottle or any preferable storage container. Discard the seeds.
- You can clearly see the difference in the color of the oil. Mustard oil is generally golden brown in color where it has turned blackish brown with fenugreek essence after heating it with the seeds. Not only this, but the fragrance also changes; you can recognize the fenugreek essence by sniffing the oil.
There you have it – your own homemade hair growth tonic!
How To Use
Oil your hair with this potion a night before you plan to wash your hair. If not so, massage with it at least 1 hour before head wash but the former idea would give better results in my experience. That is it, no hard work and no multi-step procedure to follow every three days.
Trust me; I am the living proof that this tonic works like magic! Not only does it enhance hair growth but also turns the hair brown over a period of usage. If you do happen to like brown hair, use it alternatively with amla hair oil. I have passed on this recipe to many of my friends and most of them have witnessed great results.

Suggestions For Alternate Changes
You can mix this tonic with olive oil in equal or less quantity if you wish to have both length and volume. Personally, this tonic enhances the length and olive oil enhances volume for my hair; that is why I suggest you try this combination too.
Note: You have to be patient and make it a part of your hair care regime permanently because hair doesn’t grow overnight unless you are Rapunzel’s descendent!
This easy-to-make tonic for hair growth is sure to give you the hair of your dreams. Do try it and come back to share your experience with us!
