Ingredients

  • 200 g Coconut Oil
  • 50 g Castor Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Dried Amla Pieces
  • 2 Tbsp Curry Leaves Dried
  • 1 Tbsp Methi Dana
  • 1 tsp Kalonji

Instructions

  1. In a wide wok, preferably an iron one, take coconut oil, dried amla, methi dana, and kalonji.
  2. Heat it for 5 to 7 minutes on medium flame.
  3. After some time, dried amla pieces will swell, methi dana and curry leaves too will get black in colour.
  4. Switch off the flame and let it cool down.
  5. If possible leave it like this for a day or two.
  6. Now, strain it. Though, I do not strain it and prefer as it is.
  7. Mix castor oil in it and store in an airtight bottle.
  8. Shake well before using it.

Recipe Notes

  1. You can use fresh amla also. In that case, use 4 tbsp chopped amla pieces. wash and pat dey before dropping these in the oil.
  2. Similarly, fresh curry leaves can be used. But make sure there is no water, otherwise it will splash in hot oil.
  3. Cast iron wok is best for making this oil.
  4. This is the standard method. You can adjust the quantities of all the ingredients as per your need and preference.
  5. Store this oil in a wide mouthed bottle, this is because in winters, when the coconut oil gets hard, then it is easier to take it out.
  6. Its better to heat it a little before applying in the hair.
  7. After the oil massage, give hot towel treatment to your hair for more effective results. The method of hot towel treatment is given in the main post.
