Potato Juice for Hair Growth

The Preparation Method

  • To prepare fresh potato juice for the hair, wash off the potato and peel off the skin properly.
  • Now cut the potato into small pieces and mix them in the blender. This will grind the potato into puree form.
  • In case you feel the puree is too thick, a little water can be added to it.
  • Once done, strain the puree in a fresh and clean bowl using a muslin cloth. This will separate the juice from the leftovers of the potato and give you the extract that is needed for hair growth.
  • You can use this liquid. Make sure that you prepare the potato juice fresh each time before use.

The Application Method

To apply the potato juice on the hair for enhanced hair growth and thickness you need to gently massage it on the scalp. Use the rest of the juice on the hair strands.

This should be followed once a week for visible outcomes on hair growth.

Along with growth, potato juice adds sheen to the hair. Apart from that, it keeps you away from bad smell in the hair unlike beer and onion juice.

Potato Juice, Honey and Egg Mask that Helps

A hair mask can be prepared by blending potato juice with some honey and the yolk of one egg. Massage it onto the scalp and the hair strands. Do concentrate on the roots as it will help in activating the hair follicles. This solution should be left on the hair for at least 30 minutes before you plan to wash it off. This will give the hair the time to extract the benefits from the natural products. Apart from this, you can be rest assured that it won’t have any side effects on the hair because all natural products are used in the making of the mask.

Using this mask will add a lot of moisture and deeply nourish the hair as compared to using potato and water that will only help in triggering the hair growth.

    Hi Vaishu, there can be several factors behind hair loss such as environmental effects, aging, too much stress, excessive smoking, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, genetic factors, scalp infections, use of wrong or chemically enriched hair products, certain medicines and medical conditions like thyroid disorder, autoimmune diseases, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), iron-deficiency anemia, and chronic illnesses. Some of the home remedies to combat hair fall are:
    1. Hair oil massage – You can use hair oils like coconut or almond oil, olive oil, castor oil, amla oil, or others. Massage any of these hair oils onto your hair and scalp by applying light pressure with your fingertips. Do this at least once a week.
    2. Onion Juice – Extract the juice of one onion by grating it and then strain it. Apply the juice directly onto the scalp. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, and then wash it off. Finally, shampoo your hair.

    Hi Shyam, yes…. you can mix potato and onion together and apply this using a dropper for easy application. However, do massage your scalp for few minutes to improve the blood circulation. While massaging, you may experience a little hairfall, but this is normal and it will reduce eventually.
