Fenugreek seeds come from the Fabaceae family of plants. They have leaves with 3 obovate or oblong leaflets and are cultivated all around the world. The leaves and seeds are commonly used in Asian dishes and meals, but they’ve also been used as a remedy for hair loss as well.
We all lose up to 100 hairs per day – it’s considered normal. However, losing more than that can become a problem and lead to balding. There are many commercial products that can fight hair loss, but they are full of harmful toxins and chemicals that can seriously harm your hair and health. This is why treating the problem naturally is the best solution against hair loss and fenugreek seeds are the perfect solution.
The seeds have antifungal and antibacterial properties which means they can defeat the fungi and bacteria responsible for dandruff, dermatitis and other scalp problems. The seeds can treat all these problems and improve the quality and health of your hair and scalp. Before using them, however, you should make sure to soak them in water overnight in order to get the most out of their benefits.
Here’s how the seeds can improve your hair health:

Soak a few tablespoons of the seeds in a cup of water overnight, then grind them in the morning and massage the paste on your hair roots. Let the paste work for 20-30 minutes, then wash your hair with plenty of water.
