Fragile or damaged hair is a common problem with a hectic lifestyle and usage of styling products. Wondering how to strengthen your hair? Try this DIY Hair Strengthening Oil.
There are different ways to strengthen one’s hair. I have chosen an herb-infused hair oil to do the job. Let’s take a look at the recipe first, shall we?
Coconut Oil – 250 ml
Coconut – 100 gms
Water – 500 ml
Holy Basil Powder – 25 gms
Licorice Powder – 25 gms
Eclipta Alba Powder – 25 gms
Hibiscus Flowers – 25 gms (Powder / Paste)
Aloe Vera Chunks – 25 gms
Triphala Powder – 25 gms
Indian Gooseberry Powder – 25 gms
Cow’s Milk – 125 ml
In a thick-bottomed vessel, add in the herb powders, Aloe Vera chunks and water.
When you add herb powders, set aside 5 grams in each, and add the rest to the water.
Stir the ingredients and bring the water to a boil.
When it begins to boil, simmer and let it reduce to ½ the quantity.
When you are adding powders, if you use fresh hibiscus leaves, don’t add it to the water.
Now, in a thick-bottomed pan, add the coconut oil, the concoction you prepared as instructed above and the cow’s milk.
In a mixer, add the coconut and grind it to a paste adding little water. Add that to the pan where you have added other ingredients.
Now, add the fresh hibiscus flowers, after grinding them to a paste.
You can either add the remaining herbs to coconut while grinding, or to hibiscus, or just add some water and make a paste and add that to the pan too.
Now, heat the mixture and bring it to a boil. You should let it heat till moisture evaporates completely and only moisture-free oil remains. This will take a while to happen, but make sure the flame isn’t too high. You don’t want the ingredients to get burned.
Filter the oil and set aside to cool down.
Transfer to a sterilized jar and use as needed.
This oil will last a good 1 – 1.5 years. Make sure you use a spoon to scoop out the oil, if you use a wide-mouthed container.
How to Use it?
Apply this hair oil at night and wash off your hair in the morning.
If you have sinusitis and can’t let oil soak through the night, use it ½ – 1 hour before shower.
Apply this oil at least 2 – 3 times a week for best results.
Tips to Tweak the Recipe
If you are replacing this for your regular hair, you can add a few drops of Argan Oil to the mix for added benefits and aroma.
