This is a very simple hair oil prepared with easily available ingredients. It makes your hair shiny, strong and helps to arrest hair fall. Applying oil regularly is very important to improve our hair health and also to keep our hair conditioned and nourished. It’s not always easy to find the right hair oil. We get millions of oils in the market and choosing the right one is a nightmare.
We don’t have to spend more money to buy those fancy hair mask, oil, serum or any other hair products. A simple healthy hair care routine will help us to achieve a better result than the one we get in the market with loads of chemicals.
I never use a serum or hair mask with chemicals. I always use the one which is available in the kitchen to achieve the result we expect. Eating healthy is equally important to keep our hair and mind clean and healthy.
I have used Shallots, Garlic, Peppercorns, Fenugreek Seeds, Curry Leaves, Gooseberry along with Coconut Oil and Olive Oil.

Coconut Oil is best for any kind of hair. Using almond oil or olive oil in this hair oil is optional but try to use them for better result.
How often do we use this oil?
Try to use them twice or thrice a week for a very good result.
How to use this oil?
Take the required amount in a bowl and warm the oil. Then apply them on your scalp using cotton pads or finger and gently massage completely to penetrate the oil inside the scalp. Then allow the oil to sit for minimum an hour or overnight and take hair was with milk shampoo.
It is good to avoid any kind of chemical treatment for hair. Straightening, perming, keratin treatment or any hair fall treatment suggested in the salon are not good for our hair follicle. We should try to keep our hair healthy by using natural ingredients which don’t harm our scalp.
