homemade hair oil for hair growth

Everybody, irrespective of gender, aspires to have an attractive mane. Thick-lusty-shiny hair automatically grabs attention and just one word, wow, says all.

Hair may be thick or thin, curly or straight, jet black or light brown or golden…the texture of hair may vary depending upon environment, genes, climatic conditions, and many other factors that are uncontrollable but having healthy hair are very much in our control. And healthy hair means no hair fall.

Little hair fall is inevitable but if it is too much then definitely needs attention. And this is one problem which is faced by many of us. Hair looks good only on the head. The hair on a pillow or towel or in food etc arouses tension which further aggravates hair fall. This All-in-One homemade hair oil for hair growth formula stops hair fall to a great extent.

When it comes to hair, oiling plays a very crucial role. Though today’s young generation doesn’t believe in it much but as age progresses beliefs change and so does their perception about oiling hair. Can you believe, both my fathers (father as well father in law), nearing 80, have black hair even at this age! The reason? Both of them religiously applied oil in their hair immediately after having a bath.


Memory Lane

While writing this post, how much I am missing my granny! Every Sunday, despite my resistance, very lovingly she would gently massage oil in my hair. Those were the lovely days! After I got married, I practically stopped this process. And years later, when realized that my hair really needed some treatment, started again.


My Experience 

I have been using this All-in-One hair oil with curry leaves for the past 3 to 4 years now. It has not only stopped my hair fall but its regular use has also made them more lustrous and healthy. 

This hair oil has all the miraculous ingredients. I will share one incidence which I think will justify this post. For the past 5 to 6 years, I have been getting my hair cut from one hairdresser only. He knows very well, that I have light hair. A few years back, he asked me if I was getting any hair treatment as he found my hair much better. Well, except that oil, followed by hot towel treatment, no other fancy treatment was there. That comment by him made my day and my belief in my All In One Hair Oil strengthened.

Cutting long stories short, let us talk about this miraculous hair oil.


How To Make Hair Oil At Home to Stop Hair Fall

My homemade hair oil is a mix of 2 oils and some herbs. In this oil, the base is coconut oil, and to supplement it is castor oil. And there are a lot of herbs like Amla, fenugreek seeds, curry leaves, and nigella seeds. This oil acts as a tonic for your hair.

Now, imagine if all these get together in one bottle then how nourishing it would be. Experts say that a combination of amla, fenugreek seeds, and curry leaves induces hair growth at a much faster rate.

This oil is excellent to stop hair fall and to prevent greying of hair. In addition, it promotes hair growth too.

Hair Oil

This oil tackles almost all the problems of hair be it hair fall or dryness or premature greying.
Cook Time 10 mins
Course DIY


  • 200 g Coconut Oil
  • 50 g Castor Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Dried Amla Pieces
  • 2 Tbsp Curry Leaves (Dried)
  • 1 Tbsp Methi Dana
  • 1 tsp Kalonji


  • In a wide wok, preferably an iron one, take coconut oil, dried amla, methi dana, and kalonji.
  • Heat it for 5 to 7 minutes on medium flame.
  • After some time, dried amla pieces will swell, methi dana and curry leaves too will get black in colour.
  • Switch off the flame and let it cool down.
  • If possible leave it like this for a day or two.
  • Now, strain it. Though, I do not strain it and prefer it as it is.
  • Mix castor oil in it and store it in an airtight bottle.
  • Shake well before using it.


  1. You can use fresh amla also. In that case, use 4 tbsp chopped amla pieces. wash and pat dey before dropping these in the oil.
  2. Similarly, fresh curry leaves can be used. But make sure there is no water, otherwise, it will splash in hot oil.
  3. An iron wok is best for making this oil. This is the standard method.
  4. You can adjust the quantities of all the ingredients as per your need and preference.
  5. Store this oil in a wide-mouthed bottle, this is because in winters, when the coconut oil gets hard, then it is easier to take it out.
  6. It’s better to heat it a little before applying it to the hair.
  7. After the oil massage, give hot towel treatment to your hair for more effective results. The method of hot towel treatment is given in the main post.

    1. There is nothing in this oil that will go bad. Besides, whatever has been added has been thoroughly brewed in the oil. So, you can easily keep it for 6 months.

    1. Yes, you can as mustard oil is really good for hair but the resultant oil will be very sticky as castor oil itself is very thick. If it gets too thick then dilute it by adding little sesame or Amla oil.

  1. thnq you for giving answer. but which one will be best with all ingredient . bcz of i have big proble of hair fall & demage hair . can i use tea leaves in this remedy? and basil leaves

  2. thnq you for giving answer. but which one will be best with all ingredient . bcz of i have facing big proble of hair fall & demage hair . can i use tea leaves & basil leaves in this remedy?

    1. I would say go with coconut oil only. Also, you can add one vitamin E capsule at the time of applying oil. Just break it and mix its contents in little oil that you are going to apply in your hair. Secondly, you can have multivitamin pills for some time. Do hot towel treatment. Its really effective.
      Tresmme hair fall shampoo is good, you can use it. I use the same but the one for volume.
      I have no idea regarding tea leaves and basil leaves.

  3. i don’t know about multivitamins pills. could you suggest .if you say vitamin e pills is equal to multivitamin . then i’ll continue to them . take pills and apply in hair with remedy. as you told.

  4. Thanks for wonderful recipe. I am going to make it.

    One doubt I have is: Is it can be applied to 5 year old kid? is it safe?

    1. Glad you liked it! Yes, you can use it for kids also as it has only herbs. If making only for kids, then you can make it only with coconut oil by avoiding castor oil, as it is very sticky. Do share your feedback once you try it out.

        Hi dear, the recipe is awesome. IReally want to know what your father did. Did he apply the oil right after coming out of shower everyday or when the hair is washed. Because I want follow too. Please let me know.

    1. Hi, Amla powder can be used but eventually, it may settle down at the bottom and you will have to scrape from the bottom as well every time you use the oil. If you are okay with this then go ahead. So, better would be to use dried or fresh amla.

  7. This looks really like good hair oil. However, My secret is natural hair care with coconut oil and herbs like Amla, Reetha, Bhringraj I found on iahas.com, and they are really effective. I will definitely try this oil as well.
