Here is how you can make curry leaves oil for hair at home
To make this oil at home, all you need is a cup of coconut oil and a handful of curry leaves.
1. Pour the coconut oil in a small vessel and add the curry leaves to it.
2. Heat a large bowl of water on the stove. Once warm, lower the heat and place the vessel with the oil in it. The idea is to indirectly heat the coconut oil.
3. Continue heating the heat until a black film doesn’t coat the oil. Once done, switch off the heat and let the oil cool a little.
4. Remove the curry leaves, and use this oil—along with the black residue—to your hair at least twice a week.
