Siddha Hair Oil for Hair Loss

Siddha System of Medicine

Siddha medicinal system is one of the oldest systems of medicine on planet earth. It was developed by the famed Siddhars of South India. These Siddhars were said to be spiritually evolved beings who in their zeal to serve humanity developed this system, and it is a very dynamic one using herbs, minerals etc. The texts and manuscripts of this system is in Tamil, a language of rich literary heritage. Lack of translation into English and other languages resulted in this system being confined to Southern states of India. Efforts of the National Institute of Siddha to create an awareness of this system have started bearing fruit.

The basic philosophy of this system is akin to that of Ayurveda. It aims at re-establishing the lost harmony of vata, pitta and kapha in an individual. Hundreds of locally found herbs are used in making Siddha remedies which have been used to treat all sorts of diseases ranging from common cold to menstrual disorders to cancer.

Siddha Hair Oil for Hair Loss

Siddha herbal preparations have been used from time immemorial and have been found to be very effective in curing various diseases with least side effects. They also help in maintaining a healthy body and mind.

I would like to share with you one herbal preparation useful in treating hair loss. The ingredients are fenugreek, Indian gooseberry, Kizhanelli plant (phylanthus amarus), nilavembu (kariyat), henna leaves and coconut oil.

Fenugreek has been found to be very helpful in treating hair loss. Its potency is increased by the following process. Place 200 gm of fenugreek in an earthen pot and add 500 ml of aloe vera juice (juice of aloe vera pith). Let it soak for 12 hours and then filter out the seeds. Dry the seeds in shade.

Remove seeds from gooseberries (50 gm) and soak them in tender coconut water for 12 hours. Take them out and dry them in shade. Once dried, grind them to a fine paste.

Grind the kizhanelli plant (50 gm) to a fine paste. Similarly make a paste of the henna leaves (50 gm). Make a coarse powder of nilavembu (50 gm).

Take 600 gm of coconut oil in an earthen vessel and heat it. Once hot, drop the fenugreek seeds into the oil. Add gooseberry paste after a minute. Similarly add kizhanelli and henna pastes. Add the nilavembu powder and close the vessel. Let it boil in slow heat till a bubbly foamy layer forms on top. Now remove from heat and let it cool. Store in a bottle.

Now apply this oil once a week. Let it soak for 30 minutes and then wash it away with soap nut powder if possible. Use warm water for this.

A word of caution. Do not roam about in excessive sunlight after this bath. Avoid cool drinks on that day. Do not use this oil when you have runny nose or cold. Also not advisable for children below 10 years.
