Are Fenugreek Seeds Good for Your Hair?


What is it?


Fenugreek is a small green, leafy herb originally from southern parts of Asia and the Mediterranean


Culinary and medicinal applications use both the leaves and the small, brown seeds of the plant.


Ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine practices used this herbal supplement to induce labor, improve digestion, soothe skin irritation, and promote overall health. 


Modern research indicates that fenugreek may also have favorable effects on cholesterol, blood sugar, and inflammation.


The seeds and leaves have a distinct aroma and a slightly bitter flavor. Both are frequently used in Indian, Middle Eastern, and North African cuisines.

Hair Benefits

  • Prevents and controls hair loss thanks to its high levels of phytoestrogens, that can imitate the estrogen’s functions

  • Promotes hair growth

  • Excellent moisturizing and conditioning agent thanks to its high levels of mucilages

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Regulates the sebum production

  • It’s a washing and sanitizing agent, thanks to its steroid-saponins

  • Gives volume and porosity to hair

  • Leaves hair shiny and silky.

How to use?

If you’re planning to use fenugreek topically, soak a few tablespoons of the seeds in water for a few hours or overnight. This will create a gelling effect.

Next, grind the seeds in the gel to form a thin paste. You can apply this paste directly to your hair and scalp or mix it with coconut oil, yogurt, honey, or milk to create a mask. 

Leave the treatment on your hair for 10 minutes or more. Rinse with warm water and clean with a gentle shampoo.
