DIY Baal Jhad Herb (Alkanet Root) Infused Coconut Oil for Hair Growth

By Nida Rasheed

Hello IMBBians,

Hope you all are hearty and healthy. I had thin and limp hair. Due to excessive use of hair straightener and crimper, I was facing severe hair fall. I tried many oils and treatments, but nothing worked. One day, I was chit chatting with my sister-in-law when she told me about an ayurvedic herb named baal jhad. I had never heard about it earlier. So, I became very curious. She told me that it gives excellent results when it comes to hair fall control and hair growth. Some of her friends had tried and tested it and gained positive results. After that incident, I researched about this herb and got positive reviews. So I decided to give it a try.

About the Herb: Baal Jhad (Ratanjot)


The English name of this herb is Alkanet Root. This herb is primarily used as a dyeing and coloring agent for fabrics, soap and lip balms. Ratanjot is traditionally used in tribal areas of Himachal Pradesh for its therapeutic properties. The part of the herb used is the root. This herb, when used with oil, helps arrest hair fall, baldness and premature greying. Oil infused with this herb promotes hair growth. It is a natural hair conditioner and helps arrest premature greying, baldness and hair loss.

Things You will Need :

Coconut oil (100 ml)
⦁ A glass/plastic bottle

Method of Preparation:

Step 1:
Crush the herb with your hands.


Step 2:
Warm coconut oil (do not heat). Take oil in a glass bowl and then place this bowl into another bowl filled with hot steaming water.

Step 3:
Take a glass/plastic bottle. Kindly prefer glass bottle. I used plastic one here as the glass bottle of mine had broken and I couldn’t find another. Fill the bottle with crushed herb.

Step 4:
Now pour the oil into the bottle.

Step 5:
Shake the mixture well. The color of the oil will turn brownish due to the color of the herb. Oil will be ready for use after a day.
