Most of us must have known Hibiscus to be a flower that embellishes our garden but seldom do we know about the umpteen medicinal properties this flower contains.

The thought of coconut oil must strum childhood memories of your mother religiously oiling your hair every Sunday morning. Well, nothing beats the goodness of Coconut oil because it is the only oil which is known best for penetrating inside hair shaft when applied. Moreover, massaging the scalp stimulates the hair follicles which in turn promote growth. But, make sure you avoid over-shampooing to remove the oil; that would defeat the purpose.

Up until now, you must have used cilantro/coriander only for garnishing. But, it has another facet by being an antidote, damaged by the use of chemical products and straightening. Apart from hair restoration, it is also used in treating dandruff. Stack your shelf with oils infused with coriander seeds.
Don’t let the prickly bitter leaves of this plant misguide you; Aloe Vera is a repository of amino acids and enzymes that promote hair growth.
