Bhringraj or Eclipta alba is considered as a miraculous herb for hair growth. It grows as a weed and has a pungent smell. Apart from being used as a hair growth agent, this herb is also used for treating different ailments in Ayurvedic medicine. Bhringraj has some active ingredients that help in nourishing the hair follicles, which naturally makes the hairs stronger at the root, arresting hair fall. At the same time, these active ingredients help the dormant hair follicles to come out of their “sleeping-stage” quickly and thus promotenew hair growth. Here are some of the simple hair packs with Bhringraj that can be very helpful to boost hair growth.

You should apply this pack at least on alternate days and wash it off with plain water after an hour.

Fenugreek seeds come with some hormonal precursors that have proven effects in boosting the hair follicles. This makes it one of the best ingredients to be used in a hair growth pack along with bhringraj.

Add 5-6 spoons of bhringraj powder to it and sufficient water to make a smooth pack. Apply the resulting pack onto your scalp and leave on for an hour before washing off with plenty of water. Repeat every alternate day for the best results.
