The Miracle Hair Oil - A Tried and Tested Recipe
Recipe type: Natural Home Remedy for Hair
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • ½ Litre pure Coconut Oil ( Organic Oil works best but you could use Parachute Coconut Oil too)
  • 1 medium sized Onion, peeled (regular Red Onion/Kanda/Pyaaz)
  • 5 Sambhar Onions, peeled  (available as Red Shallots, is you're living outside India)
  • 5 medium sized cloves of Garlic, peeled
  • Leaves from 10 Stems of Kadipatta (Curry Leaves)
  • 1 heaped Tbsp Methi Dana
  • (Soak methi seeds for 4-5 hours.  Drain the water post soaking)
  1. Chop the onions and garlic and roughly rip the curry leaves.
  2. Add ALL the ingredients , EXCEPT the Coconut Oil, to a mixie and and grind it to a fine paste WITHOUT adding any water to it.
  3. In a Kadhai ( I used a cast iron Kadhai, but you could use a regular one ) first add the Oil and then add the paste to it and mix well.
  4. Switch on the flame and stir as you let the oil come to a boil with the paste in it.
  5. Lower the flame to a simmer and let it cook till the onion/garlic/kadipatta mixture darkens, as shown in the picture below (it took me 10-15 minutes)
  6. P:S: Concentrate on the mix which should darken. The Oil DOES NOT turn black.
  7. Switch off the flame, cover and keep aside overnight.
  8. Strain and use.
  9. P:S: After I poured the Oil  through a strainer I let the mixture sit in it for an hour, till all the oil had left the mixture. Strain the mixture as best as you can, using your hands or the back of a spoon to squeeze out the maximum amount of oil from it. Discard the mixture after you get out the oil. Do not use the mixture.
