Take a table spoonful of pure coconut oil and add 2 teaspoonfuls of fenugreek seeds in that. Boil the coconut oil and the fenugreek seeds till they turn brownish red. Let the oil cool down to a lukewarm temperature, once it is, take the oil and remove the seeds from it.

Use this mildly warm oil at night to massage your scalp. Again, try to be gentle as rubbing the scalp too hard to make the oil sink in can lead to more hair fall due to breakage and rough handling. Keep the oil overnight and shampoo the next morning. This should be tried 2 times a week.

  9. Hi Nilesh,

    Thank you! I dont know about eating the fenugreek seeds but applying a paste does help. My cousin has bald patches and hairfall due to that. She used to apply this once or twice in a week and I myself have seen good results in her case. This is why I hope it will help others too!

  16. Hai Niesha..

  17. No, there is nothing like that. I have applied this myself and nothing like that happened.

  18. ‘THANKS DI,I WANT TO KNOW WHETHER WORKS FOR BOYS or not.pls tell me,and has it any side effect?

  19. ‘THANKS DI,I WANT TO KNOW WHETHER WORKS FOR BOYS or not.pls tell me,and has it any side effect?t

  20. Yes, You can try Adi, It will work. No, for me it hasn’t shown any side effects so far.



  23. I like using the methi paste by soaking it at night in water. It is easier as well.

  24. Hi niesha, I have applied the soaked paste with lil oil but it is getting a lil dry and fllng off even as i apply it..Any suggestions ?? Thanx

  25. I think the pate will not be fine but with granules. Make a fine paste like we see in henna and then mix with some more water. Even I faced this when I didnot grind the seeds finely.
    Hope that helps Maryam.

  26. Can i use methi powder packet from stores instead of soaking the seeds and and making paste? plz answer and help me out thanks in advance

  27. Yes, you can if it is only pure methi powder. :)

  28. i having boils on my face shall i apply methi with water grind and also hairfall too

  29. i try lot for boils now drinking methi watet soaked and drink morning everyday to reduce body heat

  30. Yes, you can.

  31. How often I should use egg and methi combination…thank you niesha

  32. You can try that once in a week.

  33. Hi my question is that by soaking seeds all night next day can make wet seed paste or make them dry and make powder for what u do

  34. Hi it can helpful in bladness in man and can I make paste after dry the soaked seed

  35. Yes, you can that will work.

  36. I think you can try both ways, since grinding the seeds every time you want to do this remedy will be time consuming. So you can grind the dry seeds and store them in an air tight container in the powder form. Then, whenever you want to try this treatment simply mix water and make a paste and apply.

  37. You are welcome. :)

  38. Hi..
    I m suffering frm hair fall from 3 months.Is numbr1 remedy can regrowth my hair soon.

  39. Hi Iti,
    In most of the cases it had so, I am hopeful that this will help you too.
    Other than that you should also take care of your diet take protein rich food and also Vitamin B complex rich food items.

  40. Thanku…plzz tell me if i’ll use this paste daily will it affect my hair

  41. Hi Niesha,

    I m using this remedy right now & will give you my feed back to you.

    After using this remedy is there any positive sign for turn white hairs in to black in your cousin case or you have own any experience regarding for the same.


  42. I dont think so but dont do that daily, 2-3 times should be fine.

  43. Hi Nilesh,
    Yes sure do give the feedback it will help others as well.
    In my cousin’s case the hair fall was the major problem which this had controlled and helped in hair growth as well. Greying wasn’t her concern at that time.

  44. Hi.. .
    I m suffering from hairfall frm 3months .. actually i had gone through a minor surgery nd i had taken antibiotics…so plzz tell me is it due to antibiotics or some other reason ?

  45. Hi Niesha,

    Can you pls post your cousin hair pic?? So we all know how much improvement will get through this method. Your cousin still using fenugreek seeds??


  46. I dont think antibiotics can do that since most of the antibiotics will give side effects like leaky gut or irritable bowel syndrome so, I am not sure if that can case hairfall.
    Take protein rich and vitamin rich food items which will natural strength the hair and combat hair fall.

  47. Yes, she still uses that at times but she is busy with her job these days so not regular on this but she has liked this treatment. I will post when she comes over.

  48. Hi niesha
    I will try your tip

  49. Hi, I am going try fenugreek ,I’m having trouble finding fenugreek seeds in New Orleans,Louisiana ,I called whole food stores nobody seems to know what fenugreek is ,I found fenugreek organic powder on eBay ,Is the powder as effective as the whole seeds?

  50. Forgot to give my history ,I am a 63 year old black female, at age 35 I gave birth to my only child ,a few months after I gave birth starting losing hair at age 40 started menopause then started with the balding at the crown area.

  51. Hi Edna,

    Yes, you can use the powder instead of the seeds as well. One of my cousins actually likes to use the powder form since that doesn’t need grinding and saves her time.

    Hope the remedy helps you!!
