When it comes to hair loss, you have tried out everything. From getting expensive hair rituals at the salon to home remedies, and still nothing works for you. There are various contributing factors to hair loss we can never eliminate, but what we can certainly do away with is the condition. The answer lies in the leaves of the superfruit ‘guava’.
Why guava leaves for your hair
Growing in abundance at your friendly neighbourhood park, guava leaves have a miraculous ability to stop hair loss and make it grow back with vigour, believe scientists. Owing to their richness in vitamin B, an important vitamin for hair growth, guava leaves are a boon for those suffering year round hair loss. Also, the guava leaves are most effective in improving the platelet count of a Dengue patient.
How to use guava leaves on your hair
Growing aplenty in your colony, a guava leaf potion is actually even simpler to make. Take about a handful of guava leaves and boil them in a litre of water for about 20 minutes, till the benefits of the guava leaves have been soaked up by the water.
Allow the potion to cool down completely at room temperature. Strain the leaves and bottle the decoction you can use from time to time on the scalp and roots of your hair like a tonic.
You can take a palm full of it and massage on your scalp. Keep it on for a few hours before washing it off. You can even massage it to your hair and let it stay overnight. Wear a shower cap or a towel when you go to sleep, and then rinse off first thing in the morning. The vitamin B component in guava leaves helps strengthen the roots and hair follicles, and checks hair fall.
