    Hello Ladies,

    I would like to know the method for preparing hair oil using aloe vera, curry leaves, coconut oil, hibiscus flowers and leaves and amla. Please let me know the quantities and also if any other ingredients that can be added to this hair oil. I am trying to grow my hair long. Please help.

    Hi,

    Are you saying that i should grind the aloe vera pulp, hibiscus flowers and leaves, curry leaves and amla and then add it to coconut oil and boil? Or should i just add everything as it is in the oil? How will i know that the oil is done, when to switch off the flame?

    I think if you add so many varieties, you might be heading for disaster. add hibiscus and curry leaves. not too sure, but I don't think you should put aloe vera, curry leaves, hibiscus, fenugreek, basil etc together in the oil. it may not be good.

    hi,

    Don't use aloegel or aloejuice try to use aloe powder instead coz gel is not going to mix well with the oils..

    U can infuse 5% of the dried herbs to 95% of base oil or if u r going to experiment with many herbs then add just 1 tspn of each.

    The other herbs or ingredients that u can add are brahmi, liquorice root, shikakai, kapoor kachri, jatamansi, bhringaraj, fenugreek, triphala powder, neem, henna, indigo powder. Feel free to play with the ingredients which are available locally, natural herbs are not going to do any harm unless a person has allergies..& create your own recipe..
