For all the Curly Witches

Hello hello beautiful curly witches. :smiling_face:

I have really thick wavy curly hair and as winters are around, they are much more coarse and unruly.

One remedy always helps me to manage them. It helps me with dryness, scalp itchinesses, even hair loss in spring season. On the top of that, IT SMELLS DIVINE TOO. So earthy and so herby.

Fenugreek, Rosemary and Sage hair spray

Step 1: Add fenugreek seeds to one glass of water. Let it soak overnight.

Step 2: Add two glasses of water in a pan and heat it till it starts boiling.

Step 3: Bring down the heat to the lowest level and add rosemary and sage leaves to it. Cover it immediately.

Step 4: Let it simmer for two to three minutes. Take this mixture off the heat.

Step5: Allow the rosemary and sage water to cool down. Do not take the cover/lid off the container. You’ll notice the colour has changed, when you finally lift off the cover. This is exactly what is supposed to happen!

Step 6: Once the mixture has cooled, add the fenugreek seeds water to it.

Store the mix in a glass/plastic spray bottle and use it in morning or evening whenever you want to untangle your beautiful unruly curls.

Tada :tada:


I love rosemary and sage and use them often, but I haven’t experimented much with fenugreek before! I’m adding it to my list of plants I want to study :scroll::herb::sparkles:

Thank you very much sharing this lovely recipe, @KhanjanB! :heart:



Fenugreek is a superfood for hair as well as body. You can drink the overnight soaked water (filter the seeds from water) and it will clear your digestive system hence helps with clearing of skin too. It’s so so potent. It’s doesn’t taste the best but it’s called magical seed in India.
Try it. :innocent:


I want to! Especially with the digestive benefits you’ve mentioned- it truly sounds like a magickal seed :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Thank you for the recommendation! :green_heart:


I’m saving this, for sure! My hair isn’t thick and curly, but my child’s is. I’m sure this will help immensely. Thank you for sharing!

Yes! It’s also something that lactating people will supplement with if they’re struggling to produce breastmilk. Pro-tip → if you consume a lot of fenugreek, you will start to smell like maple syrup :joy:


Yes thank you for mentioning that.
I didn’t know about maple syrup part. :joy::joy::joy::joy: that’s so cool


Oh I have to try this, I love my curls and seeing them dry up in the winter is just the worst! Looking forward to the lovely smell too :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


haha you’re welcome! I used to work in a health food store with a very large vitamin & supplement department. The fenugreek was one of my favorite things to stock because it smells so good :joy:


Yes it does.


Thanks for sharing this and I def want to try it! Do you mind telling me how much of each (fenugreek, rosemary and sage) that you used? Thank you!


Thank you for liking the thread.
I generally soak one fist fenugreek seeds in almost one and a half cup of water.
Take almost 2-3 strands of rosemary from my garden and like one tablespoon of loose sage leaves.
Pleas adjust it as per your likings (if you like rosemary, add that a little more than other ones)


My personal recommendation is Coconut oil and Jojoba oil. After discovering these oils I threw away the commercial serums and anti frizz cosmetics because simple natural oil works much better.Both work great as a leave in conditioner, to reduce potential post shampoo afro syndrome, dryness or breakage. A couple of drops of rosemary, lavender thyme and cedarwood essential oils can be a nice addition for hair health supplement and to smell nice.


Yes I agree on the natural oil part
Coconut oil doesn’t work for my hair because my hair are low porosity hair and the curled kind of get weight down even after the wash. I like the bounce.
I use rosemary, lavender and jojoba oil blend for oiling and the natura spray I mentioned. It works perfect for my hair.
