Are you looking to protect your hair from hair fall and add volume to it? If yes, then look no further as what you needs is hair oil made from natural ingredients that can help you fight common problems like hair fall, dandruff, and dullness.
A hair oil made at home will ensure that you target the problem areas by using the ingredients that are suited to your needs. So, if you want to promote healthy hair growth and reduce dandruff, then a hair oil made of curry leaves and lemon can come to your rescue.
Curry leaves (kadi patta) are usually associated with seasoning dishes like sambhar, poha, and kadhi. However, they are also packed with benefits for our hair, as they contain a compound called carbazole alkaloids, which are known for their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. These properties help ward off scalp infections and dandruff, and increase the strength of your hair. It is also packed with protein, vitamin B and C, and beta-carotene which prevents hair from thinning, promotes hair growth, and reduces dullness.
Similarly, the benefits of lemon extend beyond flavouring the dishes. It is loaded with vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, antioxidants, and flavonoids. This nutritional profile helps to make hair stronger by strengthening the hair follicles, combats dandruff causing fungus, and fights scalp infections. As per research published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology, vitamin C plays a critical role in normal hair follicle cycle, and promotes hair growth.
