Get to Know: Fenugreek Seeds

What are Fenugreek Seeds?

Fenugreek — or methi — seeds are frequently used as a natural home remedy for thinning hair and other related conditions, such as dandruff or a dry, itchy scalp. They are a rich source of iron and protein which are two essential nutrients for hair growth. These seeds also contain a unique composition of plant compounds, including flavonoids and saponins. Both of which have strong anti-inflammatory and antifungal effects, and can induce hair growth.

Fenugreek Seed Benefits

According to some clinical studies and anecdotal evidence, applying fenugreek to the hair may have the following benefits:

  • Fights against hair breakage and dandruff. Fenugreek seeds have high protein and nicotinic acid content, which are known to be beneficial against hair fall and dandruff, and in treating a variety of scalp issues like dryness of hair, baldness and hair thinning.
  • Hydrates Hair. Fenugreek seeds contain large amounts of lecithin, which hydrates the hair and strengthens the roots or hair follicles. The seeds also help in moisturizing the hair and bringing back the luster and bounce.
