In my last article about Moringa, I talked about Hair loss and wanted to share some more tips. Hair fall is a common lifestyle disorder that happens because of pollution, lack of nutrition in diet, medicines, hormonal imbalances, PCOS/D, stress and such modern lifestyle concerns. The loss of hair is depressing and it affects our confidence. We try to find instant solutions and end up buying expensive products. Most of these products boost their tall results but they hardly deliver.
When I was having serious hair loss I, researched good old traditional natural cures and tips that are followed for generations in India. I made a list of natural oil mixes that are nourishing enough to permanently stop hair fall. These oils also bring back the shine, volume, and bounce that we also lose.
Following oil mixes are made from ingredients that are easily available and these oil mixes do not require any kind heating or cooking. These are simple to make and they give great results. I can see a noticeable difference in my hair after regularly using these hair oil mixes but one needs to be patient with such traditional cures. Slowly, steadily and surely they work without any side effects and plus they do not cost much.
7 Best Natural Oil Mixes
Instruction for all Oil Mixes:
Rub in any of the following oil mixes on scalp and roots with fingertips, massage lightly, and keep overnight.
Apply any of the following oil mixes at least once a week. Heating not required. Prefer a mild and natural shampoo.
Oil Mix 1) Kalonji & Methi Oil:
Ingredients: 2 tsp. Kalonji Seeds, 2 tsp. Methi Seeds, 50 ml Pure Coconut Oil, 50 ml Castor Oil, Glass bottle or container.
Method: Grind Kalonji Seeds into dry powder and keep separately. I used my mixer’s dry masala jar. One can also use a coffee grinder. Grind Methi Seeds into fine dry powder. It is always a good Idea to grind these seeds separately first, as they have different hardness. Once you have both seeds in form of a coarse powder grind them together so they mix well together and become smoother.
Pour this powder mix into a clean and dry glass container. Pour 50ml Pure Coconut Oil and 50ml Castor oil in the container. Close the lid and shake to mix all the ingredients together. Keep this container in Sunlight for 4 to 5 days. I used it from the first day itself and found amazing results but Sunlight helps these ingredients to release their natural oils, which will be more beneficial.
The powder will settle at the base of the container. Shaking the bottle before every use is not required. You can change the ratio of castor oil and coconut oil. If the oil feels too thick reduce the quantity of castor oil and increase the quantity of coconut oil but does not skip castor oil.
Benefits: Hair fall stops, hair becomes thick, hair becomes soft, hair becomes dark in color, prevents greying, hair looks shiny and straight after wash.
Now starts the list of simpler mixes.
