How To Use Curry Leaves For Hair Growth November 7, 2016

Most of the time, hair fall is directly related to follicle health. Hair follicles get clogged due to factors such as an oily scalp, pollution, and the build-up of products. The clogged follicles leave the scalp feeling irritated, causing itching, dandruff, and hair fall. Curry leaves can effectively treat these problems because of the following properties:

  • Curry leaves are rich in antioxidants that moisturize the scalp while getting rid of dead hair follicles.
  • They are a good source of proteins and beta-carotene, both of which prevent hair loss and thinning (1), (2).
  • The leaves are also rich in amino acids that help strengthen follicles and keep them healthy (3).

Ways To Use Curry Leaves

  1. As A Hair Tonic

What You Need
  • A handful of fresh curry leaves
  • 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil
What You Need To Do
  1. Pour the coconut oil into a pan and add the curry leaves to it.
  2. Heat the oil until you see a black residue forming around the leaves. Stand at a safe distance away from the pan while you do this as the oil is likely to splutter.
  3. Turn off the flame and let the mixture cool down.
  4. Once the tonic is cool, strain it. You can now apply it to your hair.
  5. Gently massage your scalp with your fingertips while applying the oil. Concentrate most on the roots and tips of your hair.
  6. Leave it on for an hour and then rinse it with shampoo.
Why This Works

Coconut oil is well known for its penetrating properties as a hair oil that keeps your hair nourished and moisturized. When the oil is infused with the nutrients present in curry leaves, vitamin B6 in particular, it forms a mixture that helps strengthen the hair roots and shafts while curbing hair loss (4).

How Often Should You Do This

Massage your scalp with this tonic 2-3 times a week before each wash to see significant changes within a month. The regular oiling and scalp stimulation will also help boost the rate at which your hair grows.

What You Need
  • A handful of curry leaves
  • 3-4 tablespoons of Yogurt
What You Need To Do
  1. Throw the curry leaves into a blender and blend until you get a thick paste.

  3. Mix the two ingredients well until they form a paste of smooth consistency.
  4. Massage your scalp and hair with this hair mask. Ensure that all of your hair is covered in it from the roots to the tips.
  5. Leave it on for 30 minutes and wash it off with shampoo.
  6. Alternatively, you can substitute the yogurt with 2 tablespoons of milk.

Benefits Of Using Curry Leaves For Hair

  1. Curry leaves improve follicle health by getting rid of built up dead skin, dirt, and grime. They contain nutrients that nourish and strengthen the roots, preventing hair fall.
  2. Topical application of the leaves stimulates the scalp and improves blood pressure. This helps remove toxins and boost hair growth.
  3. Product build-up is one of the biggest causes of scalp irritation. Your hair products can also form deposits under the cuticles of your hair shaft, making it appear dull and lifeless. It can also give you frizzy hair that is prone to tangling and breakage. Curry leaves help get rid of this build-up, leaving your scalp and hair feeling fresh and healthy.
  4. Curry leaves are a rich source of vitamin B, one of the vitamins essential for hair health. The lack of vitamin B is linked directly to hair loss. It helps in new hair growth as well as makes your hair strong and healthy.
  5. As you get older, your hair starts to become lifeless and weak. Once you run out of the pigment in your follicles, your hair also starts to gray. However, sometimes this happens to young people due to factors like stress, smoking, genetic build-up or excess consumption of alcohol. The vitamin B content present in curry leaves also helps prevent premature hair graying and, as a result, your hair retains its color and luster longer.
  6. Curry leaves are also rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants help maintain the health of your hair and scalp. They battle the damage-causing free radicals to keep your hair healthy.
  7. Curry leaves improve the elasticity and the tensile strength of your hair. When damaged hair gets enough nourishment and moisture, it starts regaining its former strength and luster. Curry leaves, in combination with coconut oil, help provide the hydration and nourishment that your hair requires to heal.
  8. The vitamin B6 present in curry leaves works as a hormone regulator that improves the overall health of your hair while strengthening your hair roots.

Battling hair fall might seem like a daunting task, but like dealing with any bully, all you need to do is stand up to it with the right solution at your disposal. A set hair care routine that incorporates natural ingredients like curry leaves can restore your hair to its former glory in no time.

    Hi Aparna, oily skin has a higher risk of blackhead and whitehead formation which can lead to formation of pimples/ acne. You can treat oily skin with proper skin care designed specifically for greasy, acne-prone skin. There are few basic steps that you need to follow on a regular basis:
    1. Cleanse your face twice daily with a glycolic acid facial cleanser.
    2. Apply a mud mask to your face weekly. Mud or clay masks absorb excess oils from the skin while toning and tightening pores.
    3. Apply a salicylic-acid-based lotion to your face after cleansing. Salicylic acids allow oxygen into deep pores in order to destroy bacteria and remove whiteheads and blackheads. Do not use salicylic-acid-based lotion if your skin shows signs of excessive drying and redness.
    Follow these steps habitually for best results. Hope you find these tips to be useful !!

    Dear Pallavi, it is common for pregnant women to develop blotchy areas of darkened skin, commonly called the mask of pregnancy also known as chloasma or melasma gravidarum. These changes may be triggered by hormonal changes during pregnancy, which stimulate a temporary increase in your body’s production of melanin, the natural substance that gives color to hair, skin, and eyes. Sun exposure plays a role, too. Being out in the sun will darken the skin, making them show more patches.The areas of increased pigmentation will probably fade within a few months after delivery and your skin should return to its normal shade. To protect your skin, wear a sunscreen (SPF15 or more) or a hat whenever you go out.

Although there is no cure for alopecia, it is estimated that 50% of patient’s hair will grow back in one year without treatment. There are several treatment options available for alopecia ranging from corticosteroids, steroid injections, phototherapy, hair transplantation or scalp reduction. Some of the home remedies include lavender and other essential oils, milk thistle, ginkgo, kelp, potatoes, cucumbers, peppers, green tea, onions, rosemary, henna, aloe vera, fenugreek, licorice root, and Chinese hibiscus.

    Hi Prateek, there are two main factors that contribute to a teenager’s hair turning gray, illness or genetics, with the latter being the most likely cause. When youngsters start to produce gray hair it is known as “premature graying” or “canities”. When there is a lack of melanin activity, it means the hair follicles are lacking pigmentation, which then causes the hair turns gray. Typically this does not start to occur until we reach our 30s, but occasionally a reduction in the production of melanin can begin as early as during teenage years, and is a result of nothing other than our genes being programmed to do so. Some medical conditions can also affect teenagers’ hair and cause it to become gray. Smoking has also been associated with causing premature graying among teenagers. Some of the preventive measures are regular healthy diet, proper hair and scalp hygiene and de-stressing activities are a must. Consult a doctor for a complete check up, for further treatment.

    Dear Rajat, the premature graying problem is largely genetic. Our hair follicles contain pigment cells that produce melanin, which gives hair their color. When our body stops generating melanin, hair presents itself as gray, white, or silver. Gray hair can also be the result of a medical condition or poor nutrition. If you are deficient in B12 or suffer from a thyroid imbalance it can also cause your hair to go Gray. Lifestyle choices such as smoking and drinking contribute to premature graying too.

    Hi Gayatri, if you do not like to apply egg to your hair then applying fenugreek (methi) paste is good option. Methi promotes hair growth and also protects the natural color of your hair. Another remedy is the application of coconut milk. Coconut milk is rich in iron, potassium and essential fats. It reduces hair fall and breakage. Extract the milk of a coconut. Apply this on your scalp. Leave it overnight. Rinse off with cool water the next day. It does wonders for the hair growth.
