Homemade Hair Oil Recipe for Hair Loss and Head Massage

The most effective and vital ingredient for hair growth and nourishment is the traditional method of oiling your hair regularly like a warm oil champi tel maalish. The age-old advice of having a hot oil champi is still one of the time-tested techniques to care for your hair and scalp. Having been born in Coastal Andhra and having access to freshly extracted Coconut oil, my hair was always oiled and braided as a child.

My hair was hip length until I had kids, but it reduced to shoulder length because of medications and life. Lockdown helped my hair; I made a magic potion: Coconut Oil + Hibiscus + Castor Oil + Vitamin E. This homemade oil has helped in returning the gloss, extreme shedding, or thinness. My hair loss has ended. I now have waist-length hair after zealous use of this homemade hair oil.

  21. I boil curry leaves and methi seeds in coconut oil and let it set to cool..thenadd castor oil to it. This is my hair oil..i don’t know how people survive without oiling their hair… During lockdown though, I became lazy as the ample of house chores due to the absence of maids use to tire me up. I hardly used to take care of my hair or skin. Due to which they had split ends and became too dry and rough. I had hair cut recently and now they are fine. I make sure to oil them as much as i can…. Hibuscus flower is a bit hard to find near by me… But if I get my hands on them, I will surely give this oil a try too.
