Fenugreek Curd Hair Mask {Reader's Tip}

Thanks Sonal for the wonderful tip :)

"The curd- methi powder mask works wonders for hair! Take 2 tsp of methi powder in a bowl of curd. Apply it on hair, wear a shower cap and wait for 45 mins. Wash it properly with ample water, a little messy & sticky but good for hair. Instead of shampooing right after, apply oil and wash it off the next morning :)"

  2. I tried the method of drinking soaked fenugreek seeds. I had to stop doing this because it makes me so bloated that I was very uncomfortable. :( I will have to use this curd and fenugreek powder method. Could you tell me what is curd? Is it like yogurt? Btw, I tried the aloe vera with rosemary, ginger and lavender mixture for my hair after shower, I am seeing a difference already. Hair loss is less but then it could be the combination of the fenugreek I was taking then.

    1. hi Dawn...oh!! I didn't know it also makes one feel bloated. curd is yogurt :) oh, did you see the DIY I put up or you read about it somewhere else?? yeah, it could be either. now that you have stopped fenugreek, you can judge whether the aloevera mixture is doing anything or not. do let me know the results :)

    1. I am applying the oil I talked about a month back, the treatment thingy!!! but, as such, I liked biotique flame of the forest and Kama brigandi both. right now, I have to review aloeveda herbal oil which also sounds great so lets see.
      I apply oil both on scalp and hair ends. you should check this post out: http://perfectskincareforyou.blogspot.in/2012/05/instructions-to-oil-your-hair-hair-care.html
      I have detailed out how to apply oil in it.

    2. generally, dal and other grains hair masks are damn sticky and one has to remove them carefully in the shower before shampooing. I always keep these hair masks only for 30 minutes and wash them off before they get dry coz they are really hard to get rid of if they get dry!!!

    1. hi...getting your hairs black again is a little difficult process but using mustard or sesame oil regularly is a damn good idea to get your hair back to black.
      also, biotique mehendi/henna is good, the only one tried in fact so can't really compare but its not black mehendi. guess, shahnaz has one. you should check it out. heard a lot about it!!!

  7. Soak 3 tablespoon of fenugreek seeds(methi) in water over night. In the morning make a thick paste of fenugreek and add it to 1 cup beaten curd. Apply the hair mask and leave it for 45 minutes and wash off with a mild shampoo

  8. My hair has always been very strong and healthy ,n i have never faced any hair problem in my life though i have used many hair gels n chemicals.
    These days i am using Gatsby hair gel but whenever i use it, a day later it seems that my hair have turned little brownish in colour which becomes black again in some time so Is it damaging my hair..??

    1. may be the gel gets oxidized but I have not much idea regd this issue!!! yes, you can use onion juice but if you already have good hair, no need to do anything. just be regular with your routine!! also, onion changes the hair color to copper.

      Delete
    2. in that case i will stay with my hair as they are coz i dont wanna have copper hair.
      Thnxx :)

  10. HI,is there any fact that drinking methi seeds soaked water everyday will gain weight????

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. well, I am not aware of that!!!

      Delete
    2. yes-- Fenugreek stimulates appetite so you will eat more :)
      also be careful : it blocks absorption of iron in your body-- it s not good for women especially -- and especially if you are a little anemic. and lack of iron makes your hair fall...

    3. oh is it??? thanks for such important info...will search more on it.

    1. hi...I haven't tried the frying method but logically, heat allows the infusion process to be better so probably a little frying would be in fact better. no harm in trying and I am sure she knows it better than us :)

    1. no, you can't do soaking in oil....you have to infuse oil with the powder which takes around a month to get proper infusions!!
