Our neighbor in our village used to collect curry leaves from our farm regularly. One day when I was talking to her, she mentioned about this curry leaf hair oil. She said that, she has been using this oil regularly and it has helped her premature greying and hair growth significantly. She taught me the way, she makes the oil. It is very easy to make this curry leaf hair oil. Just two ingredients and you have a very nice hair oil in your hands. But the ingredients are very important. I always use home made coconut oil to make this oil (every year in summer we grind our own coconut oil from the coconuts in our farm for that years use in cooking). You can use virgin coconut oil which is readily available everywhere now. Use freshly plucked curry leaves which is not sprayed with pesticides. Curry leaves should be cleaned thoroughly and dried in the shade to remove moisture. If there is moisture in curry leaves, the oil will turn rancid very soon. This oil is light green in color and has a very nice smell. I really love the smell of this curry leaf hair oil. As this oil conditions and strengthens the hair, it helps in hair growth too. It really helps people, who has problems with premature greying, but the oil has to be applied regularly.

1.First clean the curry leaves in water and dry it in shade, spread on top of a plate or kitchen cloth till there is no moisture left.
2.Take 1 cup of coconut oil in a pan and heat it .
3.Once the oil is hot, add all the curry leaves at once and switch off the flame immediately.
4. Let the oil cool and pour it in a bottle along with the leaves. The only important thing here is that the leaves should be completely immersed in oil. If the leaves pop out of oil, the oil will turn rancid soon.
- This curry leaf hair oil keeps well for few months, but make sure the leaves are fully immersed in the oil.
