  • A bowl or jar
  • Olive or coconut oil
  • Fenugreek seeds

Use a spatula or spoon to stir the two ingredients until they are completely infused.

Your mask is now ready so you can go ahead and apply it to your hair. Focus on areas where you are experiencing hair loss or thinning.

If you so wish, you can have a shower cap over your hair to generate heat.

Let the mask sit in until it is dry.

Step 4

After about fifteen minutes, you want to rinse the mask off your hair using warm water. Use a shampoo to wash your hair and follow up with conditioner.
