1. Fenugreek Seeds
Methi or fenugreek seeds are used for flavor and health benefits in foods. These seeds remove dandruff and promote the overall hair health and growth. Soak the dry seeds in water for at least 6 hours and apply the paste on the roots of the hair and rinse after drying.

The coconut milk prepared from fresh or grated coconuts prevents hair fall and strengthens, moisturizes and disentangle the long hair. It is not necessary to soap wash the hair afterward as it does not make the hair oily. Just water rinsing is enough.
