Abstract

Human hair growth is very important to our health and well-being. Curry leaves and other herbal ingredients are known for their potential as hair growth stimulants and conditioners. These products address hair-related issues like hair loss, thinning, split ends, dandruff, increased sebum production, and hair loss. Hair conditioners boost bounce, nourish hair, maintain scalp cleanliness, and add shine. Curry leaves, also known as Murraya koenigii, are used in India for their anti-dandruff properties. Amla, a rich source of vitamin-C, amino acids, and minerals, is also beneficial for hair health. Flaxseed, rich in α linolenic acid, lignans, and fibre, improves circulation and promotes hair growth. Shikakai is an effective Ayurveda medicine for hair-related issues, helps clean the scalp without irritation. Hair loss can be caused by stress, illness, fungal infections, ageing, low thyroid, chemical agents, and hormonal imbalances. Maintain hair health, apply oil to the head, rub the scalp with fingertips, style damp or dry hair, consume a variety of fruits and vegetables, apply honey, wash hair with fuller's earth daily, and prevent dandruff with castor, mustard, and coconut oil
