Cinnamon oil is said to have properties that help in increasing hair length and thickness as well. If you use this for two weeks every alternate day then you will see the difference.

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • Hair balsam (easily available online)
How To Make It
  • Mix together the three ingredients and you can add more quantity depending upon the thickness and length of your hair. 
  • Apply it on wet hair with a brush and keep it away from the scalp and even from the forehead. 
  • Make a hair bun and cover with a shower cap.
  • Let it stay till dries up and wash it off with water until all the product is gone. 
  • Follow it up with a shampoo and conditioner

I have personally tried and tested the cinnamon and curry leaves mask and they have indeed made a difference when it comes to the hair volume and length. Do not forget to do a patch test whenever you plan on preparing a mask that goes directly on your scalp. If it itches, wash off immediately.
