Coconut Oil and Shikakai Oil: I have used these as base oils. You can substitute them and go for thick oils like castor oil, amla oil, bhringaraj oil. It would be best if the oils are made by extraction of pure ingredients rather than the commercially available ones. But you can surely give this a shot with store-bought oils.
Black Cumin Seeds: 1 tablespoon for 50 ml of oil.

Black Tea: I got a black tea bag, but you can use black tea leaves too.
1. Pour the coconut oil and shikakai oil in 1:1 ratio to a mixing cup. You can scale up to make up a larger batch, or make small amounts as I do. The ratios given here are for 50 ml total oil volume (25 ml coconut oil and 25 ml shikakai oil).

2. Massage your scalp and apply till the end of your strands 1-hour prior hair wash.
3. Wash off with a mild shampoo.
Black Cumin Seeds or Kalonji:
Kalonji or black seed has been used for many years as a traditional hair care ingredient, especially in Asian and Mediterranean regions. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant nutrients helping to strengthen hair and prevent uncontrolled hair loss. Regular use helps to add shine and lustre to hair and protects it from premature greying. It is also said to eradicate dandruff and contribute to overall health of hair.
Black tea is rich in caffeine, in fact, it has more caffeine than a cup of coffee. The caffeine blocks Dihydrotestosterone or DHT, the androgenic hormone that is responsible for hair loss. Black tea softens natural hair, makes it manageable and add a dark shine to hair.
The magic of coconut oil for hair is known to all. It’s rich in fats which condition and smoothen hair, make hair stronger and stronger.
Shikakai is a great source of vitamins which help promote hair growth by giving your scalp a collagen boost. Not only does it boost hair growth and shine, it cures dandruff and scalp itching.
