Frequently asked questions
How Often Should I use a fenugreek hair mask?
Using this hair mask once a week will be extremely beneficial in reducing hair fall and also stimulates hair growth.
Does fenugreek regrow hair?
YES. Fenugreek helps in regrowing hair. I’m saying this from my personal experience. Fenugreek is a good source of Nicotinic acid that encourages hair growth. Also, the lecithin in fenugreek seeds nourishes the hair follicles.
How do you wash fenugreek out of your hair?
If you blend the hair mask smoothly, the paste comes out easily when you shower. But if the mask is not smooth enough, then the particles get stuck in your hair and it will be a tedious process to remove it. If you feel like your mask is not smooth enough, then strain the paste through a muslin cloth.
Can I use fresh aloe vera gel on my hair?
YES. But make sure to wash it thoroughly before using it. Also when you cut an aloe leaf from the plant, it oozes out a yellow liquid, make sure it doesn’t touch your skin since it causes itching when it comes in contact with our skin. So washing fresh aloe pulp is key.
I don’t have Avocado oil with me, what should I do?
Don’t panic, you can substitute Avocado oil with Extra Virgin Olive oil. If you don’t have olive oil then use castor oil in place of avocado oil.

Add 2 drops of tea tree essential oil to the mask also replace avocado oil with coconut oil to treat dandruff and at the same time stimulate hair growth.
