Curry leaves are amazing for your hair, especially when used for hair growth, controlling hair fall, for dry hair or damaged hair and more. Also known as 'Curry Patta', this kitchen ingredient is a blessing in disguise for the tresses we love so much and if you love the fragrance as I do then it's a brownie point. Let's take a look at what these leaves growing in your garden or balcony pot can do. Scroll down to know more.

Treat Damaged Hair

Thanks to excess pollution and chemicals in the hair products you get in the market, our hair follicles tend to clog and therefore become weak, damaged and dull as well. This may also cause hair loss. Curry leaves are amazing for the scalp restoration process, as they help the hair follicles breathe and make them stronger. 

Reduces Hair Fall

Hair loss can occur due to improper diet, lack of proteins and stress as well. Since curry leaves are a rich source of beta-carotene and proteins and they also have amino acids and antioxidants, this helps in strengthening the hair follicles and moisturising the scalp. 'Curry patta' also helps in removing the dead hair follicles, which can be the reason behind dandruff.

Premature Hair Graying
