DIY Natural Oil For Healthy Hair & Scalp

I have bought many haircare products over the years in an attempt to tame my mane. From moisturising shampoos to deep conditioners, from gels to sprays, from masks to oils; you name it, I’ve tried it. (It’s also a reflection of my spending habits and not just vanity, but let’s not get into that).

Recently though, I’ve enjoyed trying out natural remedies. I have found that natural remedies are delightfully easy to make and don’t break the bank, since they’re usually made with what one probably already has at home.

This coconut oil, curry leaves and fenugreek seed oil is something I found on many websites, and is a popular Indian remedy for thinning hair, hair loss, boosts hair growth, promotes a healthy scalp and many more listed benefits. This home remedy has resulted in my hair being much softer, and more manageable. I feel it’s a good deep conditioner, but make sure you shampoo and rinse your hair thoroughly after. As you should leave this in your hair for at least 45 minutes, it can be tough finding the time to do it, but do aim for at least twice a week for you to reap the benefits.

There were many different versions, some of which required blending the curry leaves and fenugreek seeds, but I opted for the simplest method.


  • 100ml coconut oil
  • A handful of dried curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp fenugreek seeds


  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan.
  2. Once hot, add in the curry leaves and the fenugreek seeds.
  3. Wait until curry leaves and fenugreek seeds turn black.
  4. Turn off the flame and let the oil cool.
  5. Strain and store in a jar, away from heat and direct sunlight.

Note: Apply the oil to your hair and scalp for at least 45minutes before washing as usual. You may have to shampoo twice to thoroughly remove the oil. The oil may stain your clothing so be careful when applying.
