Fenugreek Seeds, Hair Care Using Fenugreek Seeds, Skin Care Using Fenugreek Seeds

In one of my earlier posts, I had written about the utility of fenugreek seeds for health. This post highlights the importance of fenugreek seeds for skin and body care. Fenugreek is a natural herb with extremely potent seeds, which have a medicinal effect to reduce balding, hair fall, and hair thinning. For hair fall and dandruff, the crushed or boiled seeds alone have been found to restore the hair shaft. The seeds contain hormone precursors that replenish hair growth.
