If you’re looking to grow your hair simply and get maximum growth, below are the only 3 hair growth herbs you need.
Before going into detail on each of the hair growth herbs below, let me explain why I’m listing only three.
Sure you can find articles that list 17 herbs to grow your hair or 9 Ayurvedic herbs for hair growth. These are great resources but if you’re anything like me, you don’t want 17 or even 9 herbs. You want simple. To me, anything over 3 is just too much.
Adding an absurd number of herbs to your hair regimen is not only unnecessary. It’s overwhelming.
So, below are just three hair growth herbs that will help you reach maximum growth potential.

The first herb to add to your routine to help you increase your rate of hair growth is Amla (also known as Indian Gooseberry).
Amla is rich in vitamin C, calcium, iron, phosphorous, vitamin B, carotene and protein. These nutrients help support hair growth by increasing circulation in the scalp and strengthening hair follicles to prevent premature hair fall.
You can use Amla to create a pre-poo, hair growth oil or conditioning hair mask. There are many DIY recipes and ready made herbal products on the web that incorporate the use of Amla. Here are some:
Henna is the king of hair growth herbs. It’s an age old herb that’s native to Egypt and wildly popular for hair use in India and now the United States.
Henna’s botanical name is Lawsonia inermis. It’s main molecule responsible for depositing color and strengthening the hair is a compound called lawsone. It also contains vitamin E, other antioxidants and protein.
With regular use, Henna will strength follicular health and build up on the hair strand. It contains a compound called tannin which has the ability to bind to the hair shaft and make it stronger.

Last, but certainly not least is Fenugreek. I’ve dabbled with this hair growth herb off and on over the years but recently made it a permanent staple herb in my regimen.
Like Henna, Fenugreek can be used to create:
- hair masks
- growth oils
- hair teas or spritzes
Using Fenugreek in a hair mask is the most effective way to use the herb.
