Fenugreek Hair Mask for Hair Growth

Henna Sooq is the Go-To Source for all things herbal hair care. I had a 1-1 hair consult with Khadija (video below), the owner and one of the things she recommended I start doing is Fenugreek Hair Masks. So, of course I started right away! Below is the recipe for the Fenugreek Hair Mask I’m using 3 times a month.

Benefits of Fenugreek for Hair Care

Fenugreek, like Henna is a super herb. It has so many rich benefits but the biggest one is hair growth.

I feel like I’ve been stuck at a particular length as of late. I’ve not been having much hair breakage. It just seems my hair growth has stalled a bit. So, I’m using fenugreek hair masks to get that hair growth ball rolling again!

Fenugreek is rich in iron, protein, and phytoestrogens – flavonoids and saponins (plant derived compounds).

Without getting too technical, these compounds stimulate blood flow in the scalp which leads to hair growth. Lastly, Fenugreek can help block the production of DHT, a hair loss hormone. It also strengthens the hair shaft while simultaneously fighting dandruff.

Whew! are those some benefits or what?

Now I don’t have dandruff but it’s good to know that doing fenugreek hair masks can certainly keep that at bay.

In order to make an ultra rich (because who doesn’t want to go over the top) Fenugreek Mask, I use the following ingredients:

  • 50 grams of Organic Fenugreek Powder (use more or less depending on your hair thickness and length)
  • Distilled water
  • 2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera Powder
  • 10 drops of rosemary essential oil
  • 5 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 1 (big) squirt of S-Secrets Growth Oil

How to Create a Fenugreek Hair Mask

There are many ways to create a fenugreek hair mask but admittedly, I searched for the EASIEST and fastest way. Then, for good measure I tossed in the essential oils I knew would boost the mask. My hair responded to these essential oils well in the past.

You can use fenugreek seeds to create a paste or you can just purchase fenugreek powder. I went with the latter of course.

I made some mistakes when I created my first mask which I’ve since rectified.

First, I mixed up my fenugreek mask way in advance and it thickened up to the consistency of Cream of Wheat LOL!

The second mistake I made was not straining my mixture. Now, I didn’t have many issues with rinsing it out since I used my heavy duty shower stream. Yet, I could have made it easier if I had simply strained the mixture. Lesson learned.

So, how I make my fenugreek hair mask going forward is as follows:

When I’m ready to apply the mask (not a second before LOL):

  1. Mix the Fenugreek and Aloe Vera powders together and then SLOWLY mix in warm distilled water.
  2. Once I’ve mixed the powders and water thoroughly, I use my hand blender to mix further.
  3. Then, strain mixture with my cheese cloth.
  4. Once strained I add the essential oils and growth oil to the mix and mix thoroughly

That’s it. It’s simple and easy to put together. Plus, the slip in this mask is a level 10. You can work this mask through your hair and detangle if you want.

Lastly, here’s the video where I had the 1-1 hair consultation. Using Fenugreek in my hair was the biggest take away.

    I put a permanent hair color in my hair it broke most of my hair in the crown and front. Hair so thin I can’t hardly make styles like I use too. Every time I use permanent color it breaks my hair. I thought because I have natural hair for 3 years it could take it. Messed it up again. I use rinse because I do like the gray in my roots.Help if u can

      Have you tried henna to color your hair? If you have light hair or grays, it will make your hair appear reddish. I don’t mind it for myself. If you don’t want that, you can use indigo to color after doing the henna.

      Yes, it’s time intensive but it’s chemical free. Plus, it lasts a good long while. Just be sure to deep condition after any henna treatment
