Fenugreek is an herb that has been used in Ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine practices for improving digestion, soothing skin, improving health and now it being used in hair care to promote hair growth.
While NO product makes your hair grow overnight, good hair products aid in hair growth and make it easier for you to retain healthy hair by nourishing your tresses.
Fenugreek has the following benefits when used in your hair care regimen:
- It has anti-inflammatory properties which can help soothe scalp conditions like dandruff
- Fenugreek is rich in iron and proteins that strengthen hair
- When used on hair and skin it improves moisture retention
One study that followed 53 people over the course of 6 months found that 80% had an improvement in the health of their hair and hair growth. This is truly promising! (see the study)
In general Fenugreek is an exceptional herb. Aside from hair, as an oral supplement Fenugreek is used to boost overall health and it is often used by breastfeeding moms to increase breast milk production.
You should not use Fenugreek if you are pregnant as it could induce labor and if you are allergic to nuts you may want to avoid Fenugreek because it is also in the legume family which could trigger a reaction. Otherwise, Fenugreek is another great ingredient that will help you to grow your hair when used with healthy hair care practices.
