The benefits of curry leaves for hair

Here are some of the most exciting ways that curry leaves can help our hair:

1. Damage repair

When your lovely locks are damaged, curry leaves help restore them to health. A treasure trove of many vital nutrients, these leaves supply your scalp with the much-needed strength to let your hair follicles breathe.

2. Fight hair loss

Hair loss has become a very common problem due to increased pollution levels and stress. Curry leaves are stock houses of protein and beta-carotene, which aids in reducing your hair loss. Most of the hair loss happens due to a lack of protein in your diet.

3. Dose for dandruff

Using curry leaves regularly on your hair works wonders in providing the right nourishment to your scalp. Along with their rich protein levels, they also replenish the hair with antioxidants and restore the moisture in your scalp, helping you get rid of your dandruff troubles by removing the dead follicles for good.

4. Make your hair shaft strong

Strong hair shafts are a very important but usually neglected concern. Curry leaves contain the vitamin B6, which helps regulate hormones effectively when our hair falls. The high nutritional value they contain helps in repairing and strengthening hair shafts.

5. Healthier hair (because you deserve it)

The vital components found in these leaves helps in enhancing your hair growth and works wonders in creating long, strong, and shiny hair. So it’s a big YES to curry leaves for hair growth.

6. Bye bye grey hair (it’s not your time, not just yet!)

Curry leaves make it possible for you to say no to those unwanted, premature grey hairs. Unavoidable pollution damage and stress can cause grey hair, but the splendid benefits of these leaves trigger your hair darkening naturally.

Every dry scalp needs a bit of revitalization. The amazing vitalizing benefits of curry leaves can help make your dry hair more manageable by making the strands shinier from the outside, stronger from the inside, and super smooth to touch.

8. Thicker hair than ever

Curry leaves have the ability to make new strands grow on your scalp. This has made them a very popular method of fighting alopecia. So if you maintain a regular use of curry leaves, you’ll have thicker hair than ever before.

9. Protein power

10. A complete hair beauty caretaker

That’s actually the best benefit of curry leaves – they don’t just help you out with a specific problem, but are a complete hair-care solution. The most exciting part being that finding these curry leaves is a piece of cake and working with them is great fun, so, happy hair, girls!

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
