Note:

The oil should not be heated very high. It should be in simmer or medium flame only based on the pan and stove you are using. High heat can cause the oil to become rancid. You can also use double boiler to infuse oil with curry leaves if you have one. I will post how to infuse oils in double boiler method soon in case you do not have double boiler.

    1. Massage this oil on your scalp and hair thoroughly with your finger tips and leave it overnight. Wash your hair next morning. I apply homemade shikakai or shampoo mixed with water weekly twice. If you do not like oily hair, you can mix little herbal shampoo or homemade shikakai in sufficient water and apply it during every hair wash.

  3. hi sundari, you have mentioned in the 6th point Add water and stir the mix till it turns to black color or the bubbles start coming.
    my query is adding water to oil will make it splutter and mixing it till it turns back in color would make the oil loose its essential proprieties. Please clarify.

    1. Hi Pramila. Thanks for your kind notice. Updated the post incorporating your comments. You will hear crackling sound while boiling. Stir continuously. Boiling oil in high heat will make the oil rancid. This method is quick method to prepare curry leaves oil at home and you are going to do in simmer. Once you feel that the curry leaves juice mixed with oil, you can switch off. There are lot of other ways to prepare it. But they are time consuming. We usually prefer this method since it is very easy method and this is how we prepare oil for generations and it is effective. Watch this space for the other methods. Thanks again for your query. Keep visiting!!

    1. Hi Malar, kindly decide whether you are going to use curry leaves hair oil as a main hair oil for daily use. If so, you can directly apply without reheating the oil since it is already heated. If you like to apply it warm because of cold weather, use double boiler method for making it warm. If you do not have double boiler, take a bowl and pour required quantity of curry leaves hair oil. Then take another bowl which is slightly larger than the first one. Pour little water inside the larger bowl and heat the water. Once it is fully boiled, place the smaller bowl with the oil inside the hot water bowl carefully. The oil will become warm and you can use it. Carefully select the bowls so that you can easily place one inside the another.

      Delete
    2. Switch off the stove before placing the oil bowl. Please let me know if you have any more doubts.

    1. Hi Malar, I can understand your feelings how sad you will feel when you see your daughter's white hair in this young age. Nowadays, lot of young children are suffering from white hairs in very young age. Apply hair oil daily and leave it overnight for her. Also, give her Keerai atleast twice a week. Buy amla powder or amla and give it to her daily with honey. Even anemia and lack of Vitamins may lead to white hairs. So, check out her HB level and consult a doctor to increase it if it is less. It is very important to stop greying further.

      Reg, curry leaves hair oil, boiling oil in high heat will make the oil rancid. This method is quick method to prepare curry leaves oil at home and you are going to do in simmer. Once you feel that the curry leaves juice mixed with oil, you can switch off. There are lot of other ways to prepare it. But they are time consuming. We usually prefer this method since it is very easy method and this is how we prepare oil for generations and it is effective.

  11. Hello madam is it necessary to wash the hair next day or we can leave the oil to hair for few days.another doubt is can we make the oil and store it for a week.and do we need it to heat again and again before applying to scalp.please clarify?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. It is not necessary to wash your hair every next day. You can wash if you do want to have your look oily. Wash only once or twice a week with shampoo. But you can rinse your hair daily.
      2. No need to reheat the oil. Just use it.

    1. No problem Malar.. Happy to answer your queries. I do not have oily skin and it is tough for me to tell you which soap is good for oily skin. My cousin has oily skin and she has been using Dove soap and she says that it is good. I have recently tried Amway persona soap, and Lux - both Peach and strawberry flavors.. They both suited me well. Just try different soaps. Buy smaller size and check which one you like the most.

      I have just checked different resources for your query. It seems Medimix soap and face wash works well for oily skin. Can you please try and tell us which one suit you well.

    1. You can use homemade shikakai for washing hair or any herbal shampoo. Mix the shampoo with water while using. As I already mentioned, you can use Hamam, Cinthol, Medimix, Dove or any other mild or herbal soap if your daughter is not getting allergy out of it.

    1. Hi Shwetha, eat few fresh curry leaves daily. Also have amla or amla powder daily. Check out with a physician whether you have any deficiency. If so, they she/he will prescribe you required supplements. Also, eat spinach at least twice a week and eat 2 pieces of dates daily. Apply curry leaves or amla hair oil. Check out in the beauty index to know how to make amla oil at home. Can you explain how sprouts helped you ? It will be useful for our readers.

  24. hai madam. I am a 27 yr old male. I have lots of grey hair on my head. I use Dhathri hair oil plus. They say that use it for 3 months and the white hairs will turn black. Is it possible? Also plz tell how long I have to use the curry leaves oil so that the grey hairs be treated?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am not sure about the Dhathri hair plus oil. I will be more interested to hear from you if it helps to turn your hair color to black. Please come back and add your comment if you see any changes.

      It will be quite disheartening to see grey hairs:-( But, I see so many young children who have not crossed even 10 years of age have lot of grey hairs.

      There are lot of factors which can cause grey hairs like stress, lack of body nutrition like inadequate vitamins or folic acids, lack of hair nutrition, pollution, lack of caring hair ..

      I also started getting 1 or 2 grey hairs. I felt very sad at that time. But I later understood that it is quite normal for every one at this age.

      In my experience, when I do the following, the grey hairs are not getting increased. I have tried few other alternatives. But they did not stop further greying. I found this routine works best for me. Check whether it is helpful for you.

      1. Daily intake of amla powder with honey, a minimum of fresh curry leaves and 2 dates.
      2. Washing hair at least twice a week. I feel homemade shikakai or dove shampoo with conditioner are best for my hair. Choose which one suits best for your hair type.
      3. Intake of spinach at least twice a week.
      4. Continuous usage of curry leaves hair oil or homemade Amla hair oil. If you are not able to prepare at home, I found amway amla hair oil to be the best amla hair oil for grey hair. I have tried few other hair oils. But they were not effective in prevention of grey hairs.
      5. I apply godrej nupur henna with curd or oil twice a month.

      Please let me know if you have any more queries.
