How to Use Cinnamon to Grow Your Hair?

  • 10 Jun 2019

A popular Indian spice used in cooking, Cinnamon is also used to treat infections because it contains volatile oils, such as eugenol and trans-cinnamic acid, which have anti-fungal, anti-viral and antioxidant properties. It is also known to increase the blood circulation of the scalp.

According to Victoria Epperly, author of "Daniel's Lifestyle Fasting Cook Book," you can apply a paste made from cinnamon to the scalp to relieve hair loss and increase hair growth."

Here are the steps to make the paste:

Step 1: Gently warm up 1/2 cup of olive oil to a lukewarm temperature in a microwave or over a fire.

Step 2: Pour the oil in a bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of honey to the oil and stir properly.

Step 3: Apply the mixture generously to the scalp with a brush. Try and make sure that it comes with contact with the scalp and not the hair. Apply it from the back of your head to the front.

Step 4: Leave the paste on the scalp for at least 15 minutes. Shampoo your hair and condition it as usual. Apply the paste once each week as a hair treatment to promote hair growth and stop hair loss.
