PROTEIN HAIR GROWTH MASK

Protein and hair growth:

Fenugreek seeds are rich in protein and protein is very essential for hair growth. Each of our hair follicles are made up of protein and as we age this naturally made protein by our bodies decreases and this lack of protein can cause hair loss and therefore, we need to supplement our bodies with external forms of protein like consuming protein rich foods and using protein rich hair care remedies.

How does fenugreek benefit your hair?

1. Fenugreek seeds contain plant compounds like flavonoids and saponins that can help induce hair growth.

2. Fenugreek seeds also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce dandruff, scalp irritation and scalp infections like seborrheic dermatitis, scalp psoriasis etc., which can cause damage to the hair follicles inhibiting proper hair growth.

3. Fenugreek hair masks can help promote blood flow in the scalp. This increased blood flow can help stimulate the hair follicles in the scalp towards hair growth.

4. Fenugreek seeds are rich in nutrients which are essential in promoting hair growth.

5. 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.

6. Fenugreek seeds are rich in minerals like potassium, calcium and iron. These minerals are very beneficial in promoting long, strong and healthy hair growth.

7. 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.

8. Fenugreek seeds act as a natural hair conditioner and can bring back the lustre to the hair.
