Unani Natural Hair Dye & Conditioner

Hair dye made from plants and vegetables is referred to as natural hair dye. Since it lacks ingredients like ammonia, resorcinol, and phenylenediamine that are present in most commercial hair dyes, it is typically used in pure extract form. Natural hair dyes do not present a risk to human health or the environment because they are non-toxic. They are generally safe for long-term use because they do not damage the structure of the hair and may even aid in conditioning and moisturizing the hair.

While traditional Unani medicine suggests a large number of substances that have promising effects and are safe, I am gonna share one of these which is quick and you can prepare at home to dye and condition you hair without any side effects.

Ingredients used:

  • Henna (1 teacup)
  • Cumin (Zeera) seeds (1 teaspoon)
  • Fenugreek (Methi) seeds (1 teaspoon)
  • Water (as per need)

Method of preparation

On a pan, cumin and Fenugreek seeds are fried until golden brown and then soaked in water for the following day. The following morning, a fine paste of it is prepared, henna is added, and it is then applied to the scalp for two hours.

Henna serves as both a dye and a conditioner, assisting in the development of melanin (Sauda) and the maintenance of hair color from the root to the tip. The improvement of blood circulation caused by cumin seeds encourages the growth of hair. The Fenugreek seeds aid in clearing away the buildup of dirt on the scalp.
