Henna and Fenugreek Hair Mask Treatment for Hair Growth: First Impression

I have been reading about Ayurvedic Hair Growth Regime online and some of the results I have seen have fascinated me that I decided to try it out on my hair.

Ayurvedic regime is the use of specific herbs to promote hair growth and prevent or treat hair problems. It is an ancient Indian practice that originated over 5000 years ago.  Some of the herbs are Shikaikai, Aritha, Neem, Amla, Henna, Methi (Fenugreek) seeds, Brahmi, just to mention a few. 

So I decided to try the Henna and Fenugreek Hair Mask Treatment. I bought 100gram of Henna and 100gram of Methi (Fenugreek) powder from Beautiphic, an online beauty store here in Nigeria. 

Henna is a good natural hair dye that won't permanently alter your hair. It improves the strength of the hair, soothes the scalp, reduces hair loss, prevents and treats dandruff and itchy scalp.

Fenugreek is also good at preventing and treating dandruff. It promotes hair growth and strength as well as conditions and nourishes the hair. 

The recipe I used was pretty easy. I used 

1 tsp of Henna powder
1 tsp of Methi (Fenugreek) powder

2 tsp of Coconut oil
Coconut oil penetrates the hair shaft and conditions the hair. It improves scalp health, supports hair growth and adds shine to hair. 

2 tsp of Castor oil
Castor oil is a thick oil that increases hair growth and controls hair loss. It is a good emollient and moisturizer. It fights dandruff and itchy scalp.

I added the conditioner to the mix to provide slip and help me apply the mix easily to my hair. I had read online that applying henna to the hair can be messy as it may not stick properly to the hair

End product
Please note that I did not add water to the mix.
Just oils and conditioner 
I sectioned my hair into 6 to make application of my henna and fenugreek hair mask easy. 

Covered my hair with a nylon bag. Please use a disposable shower/plastic cap if you own one. This hair mask stains. Save yourself the trouble of endless washing.

The battery of my camera died at the point of covering my hair with a nylon bag so no more pictures (sorry). I then covered the nylon with a shower cap and wrapped with a towel to trap heat.

I left the hair mask on my hair for 1 hour and then rinsed it off with cold water. I DIDN'T wash my hair with shampoo or cowash, I just RINSED it off. 

My hair after I rinsed off the hair mask and I styled it.
My hair was so soft and easy to comb. I was surprised by how soft my hair was after using the hair mask. I have read reviews of people who had to follow up this henna and fenugreek hair mask treatment with a deep conditioner to soften their hair. My hair was also very shiny and curly and I was also able to put my hair in a bun for the first time. 

First Impression of the Henna and Fenugreek  Hair Mask

  1.  It is simple and easy to make 
  2. My hair was soft and easy to comb after the treatment. I did the treatment on Saturday 9th December, 2017 and 3 days later my hair is still soft and easy to comb.
  3. It stained my hands. I advised you wear a glove to protect your hands. It turned my palms and nails orange. 3 days later, my palms and nails are still orange
  4. You need a lot of water to rinse off the hair mask from your hair and I mean a lot of water. I kept rinsing and rinsing and rinsing to get the hair mask out. Be patient, it gets out eventually without shampoo or cowash
  5. The conditioner gave the hair mask slip. It was so easy to apply. I was able to get all the product on my hair and not make a total mess of my bathroom or clothes
  6. I was able to comb my hair into a bun. Something I hadn't thought to do or try before I applied this mask.
  7. It strengthen my hair and gave it shine. 
I'm going to add this hair mask treatment to my hair regime by doing it once or twice a month. And add some essential oils to the mix next time.
