    Fenugreek Seeds for Hair Fall

    Fenugreek seeds are great was to prevent and stop hair fall, and all you have to do is prepare it and use it.

    The amount of fenugreek seeds you will need will depend your hair length. As a guide for short hair start with a table spoon and for longer start with two table spoons. The seeds will expand in water and even more when you blend it.

    This treatment will strengthen you hair from root to tip.

    How often should I do this treatment?

    It is totally up to you.  Anything from once a week to once a month for best results.

    How to prepare it

    • Soak the fenugreek seeds overnight for best results.  (Soak in bottled water or distilled water).
    • Blend in a little more water. It will become a creamy texture.
    • Apply to your hair as a mask.  (You can apply to dry hair or freshly washed hair).
    • Leave on hair between 15mins – 1 hour
    • Wash off with mild shampoo of your choice. Or you can wash off with a conditioner.
    • Deep condition for 15mins – 1 hour.
    • Rinse off and style as usual.

    Fenugreek for Hair Growth

    For hair growth you can make your fenugreek seed infuse with oil.

    How often should I do this treatment?

    This will depend on your hair type.  You could use it as a treatment before washing as a treatment and leave on for 15mins – 1 hour.  Or you can apply to your scalp every night, two to three times a week.  The choice is really yours. I tried different ways until I found one that fitted in with my lifestyle.  There is not right or wrong way.   It is just your way.

    This is a nice and easy way to greatly increase your hair growth.

    How to prepare it

    • Get a clean dry mason jar
    • Add fenugreek seeds to the clean dry mason jar (2 tablespoons).
    • Add a natural oil of your choice. (Olive oil, grapeseed oil, castor oil) to name a few.
    • Stir it up to get the oil on all the seeds.
    • Soak for two to three weeks. (Keep in a dark cupboard).

    Fenugreek Seeds for damaged Hair

    This is my favourite and I do this treatment the most because it is an all-rounder.  Not only is it good for helping with split ends and frizz but it also makes your hair appear and feel thinker and stronger with the very first treatment.  It is very good for weak and brittle hair.

    How often should I do this treatment?

    Once a week to start and then twice a month and then once a month.  After about three months you can have a break and then do as required.  I once a week for a month in a three month cycle.

    How to prepare it

    Two ways you can prepare and they both work the same.  It is more for convenience and how much time you have to which one you prefer to use.

    First way

    • Mix fenugreek powder with coconut milk.
    • Apply to hair
    • Leave on for 30mins to 1 hour
    • Wash off with mild shampoo or conditioner
    • Deep condition
    • Style as usual

    Second way

    • Soak the fenugreek seeds in coconut milk and leave for a few hours.
    • Stir mixture to make sure that all the seeds are soaking.
    • After a few hours strain mixture.
    • And follow the steps in the first way.

    For best results use once a week until you see change and then as needed.  You can also increase treatment time to more than one hour.  I have left treatment on my hair for more than two hours at a time.

    How to prepare it?

    • Soak fenugreek seeds and curry leaves in water (bottled water or distilled water) for best results.
    • Soak overnight
    • Strain water off or you can blend it up and use as paste
    • Apply to hair
    • Leave on for 30mins to 1 hour

    You can also use fenugreek powder in place of the seeds.

      These are the many ways that you can use fenugreek seeds to condition and treat your hair issues or just to maintain,

      I will say at this point that it is not the best smelling product but it works.  If you use a good conditioner and deep condition you should be fine.

        Where I’m from, the people use Methi a lot, for the health benefits mostly. But I have never used it on the hair. I didn’t even know that it could be used on hair. I should try this. Thanks a ton for this wonderful post. I have a learned a lot from it.

          Hi and thank you for your comment, much appreciated.

          Yes Fenugreek if a really lovely hair treatment which you get immediate results. Hair will feel thinker and stronger with the first treatment. The only downside is the smell that it may leave in your hair. For myself I love the benefits and find that if I use a good deep conditioner after it helps with the smell. I myself do not mind the smell.
