What are the benefits of the ingredients used for hair and hair health?
Fenugreek seeds are rich in folic acid, which is primarily responsible for healthy cell growth, in addition to vitamins A, vitamin K and vitamin C. These seeds are rich in minerals like potassium, calcium and iron. These minerals are very beneficial in promoting long, strong and healthy hair growth. Using fenugreek seeds soaked water on hair can help stimulate blood flow in the hair follicles in the scalp, towards hair growth.
Fenugreek seeds also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce dandruff, scalp irritation and scalp infections.. Fenugreek seeds contain a substance called lecithin, which is a natural emollient (hydrator) that can moisturize and strengthen the hair (especially for those people having dry and brittle hair), while also giving your hair a shine and retaining the natural colour of the hair. Fenugreek seeds act as a natural hair conditioner and can bring back the luster to the hair.
Black seeds or kalonji seeds:
Black seeds are rich in nutrients that can help provide nourishment to the hair follicles in turn restoring hair growth. They contain omega-3s which helps in increasing the blood circulation in the scalp in turn promoting hair growth and reducing hair fall. Kalonji seeds contain a phytochemical compound called ‘thymoquinone’ that contains proteins, alkaloids, and saponins that can help boost hair growth and slow down the aging process of cells and can thereby prevent hair thinning.
Black seeds can help regulate any imbalances in the hair growth cycle and activate the hair follicles to promote proper hair growth. They help nourish the hair and can promote hair shine. Black seeds have anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties which can keep bacteria away from the scalp and can promote better scalp health.
Curry leaves or Rosemary leaves:
Curry leaves contain vitamin B which can contribute to strengthening the hair follicles and control hair fall. They are rich in antioxidants and can help restore scalp health. It can also help open up the clogged hair follicles on the scalp, in turn promoting better blood circulation and improving the growth of the hair follicles right from its root. Curry leaves are rich in antioxidants that are beneficial in fighting free radical damage to the hair.
Rosemary leaves help to promote better blood circulation in the scalp, in turn increasing hair growth and making each hair strand grow back stronger and thicker, as there will be sufficient flow of nutrients through the hair follicle to the hair strand. Rosemary helps promote hair growth by healing the damaged hair follicles as it has ‘carnosic acid’, which is an active ingredient present in plants that are known to help heal damaged nerves and tissues.
