Are you noticing that you are losing more hair than usual? Hair loss can have various causes, but there is a simple and inexpensive solution to this problem that you can find on your spice shelf.
Fenugreek, also known as fenugreek, is a plant from the legume family with numerous culinary and medicinal uses. The Latin name of fenugreek is Trigonella foenum-graecum. The culinary use of fenugreek primarily includes its seeds, which are used as a spice. They have a characteristic, slightly bitter taste and are popular especially in Indian cuisine, where they are an ingredient of the garam masala spice mixture, as well as in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. Fenugreek seeds can be added to dishes such as curries, bread, and also used in the production of artificial maple syrup.
What about hair loss?
Fenugreek is also used in natural medicine. It is believed to have properties that support digestion, lower blood sugar levels, and have a lactogenic effect in breastfeeding women. It is also used to treat skin problems and improve the condition of hair.
If you notice more hair than usual on your brush or in the shower drain, it is worth consulting a doctor or trichologist. This may be the result of stress, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, hormonal disorders or genetics. At the same time, it is worth trying home methods that can help strengthen your hair and improve its density.
Fenugreek, available for about PLN 5-6, can be an effective remedy for hair loss. It is a rich source of minerals that have a beneficial effect on the hair, scalp and hair follicles. It contains iron, silicon, selenium, magnesium, potassium and phospholipids that strengthen hair and support its growth.
Preparing fenugreek lotion is simple:
- Pour a teaspoon of ground fenugreek seeds with about 100 ml of boiling water.
- Cover and set aside for 15-20 minutes.
- Strain the infusion and use it as a scalp lotion.
The lotion can be stored in the refrigerator for a week. Apply it to your scalp and massage, then leave it for at least half an hour.
Home remedies for hair loss
In addition to fenugreek, it is worth trying nettle and horsetail lotion. The infusion of these herbs can also be used as a hair rinse, giving it lightness and shine. Note: nettle may slightly darken the hair. Another well-known method is a lotion made of stomach drops, although it is recommended to be careful and test it on the skin before use.
