How to make hibiscus flower paste for hair?

I would like to know the process of making a paste out of the hibiscus flower.


To make a paste out of your hibiscus flowers, you will need both the hibiscus flowers and the leaves from the plant. From there, you will need to crush both of them together, adding olive oil and water very sparingly during the crushing process. Once the leaves and flowers are crushed and they are in your desired consistency, you're done: you have successfully made hibiscus flower paste that you can use as shampoo in your hair. Keep the shampoo in your hair for around 15-20 minutes so it has time to absorb into your scalp and hair. If you take it out earlier than that, the paste won't have any effect on your hair. You will also want to keep up with putting the paste in your hair every day for a week. This should give you shiny black hair as a result of the shampoo's active ingredients. If you aren't getting your desired results, you may want to talk to your doctor about other prescription shampoos that would work for you to get your hair back to its original state.

How to use hibiscus to get smooth and long hair?

I have a very dry hair and growth is also not that much.


Treat your hair with coconut oil for 30 minutes three times a week. Saturate your hair in the oil and then wash out the oil after the minimum 30 minutes but you also could leave this in overnight and wash in the morning. Hibiscus, fenugreek and Argan Oil are all great for dry hair and length. Do not brush your hair when it is wet as that can cause severe breakage to the strands.

Is it okay if I just use the hibiscus leaves to help my hair grow?

My hair started thinning so badly that even my premature hairs are falling off. I read some articles on the internet saying the best remedy is the hibiscus flower/leaves paste. Can I know if it's okay just to use the leaves to make the paste ?

You could just use the leaves but try to get the flowers as well. You can find them online in powder form.

We made a Gumamela extract for our hair in order to be shiny, but we observed that this did not last long. We want to have an idea on how to preserve it so it can be use any time without bad smells. I have tried: none .. This time. I think it was caused by: I think its thick or jelly of the leaves of Gumamela

Freeze the jelly and see if you can thaw it out and it is still true to the form it was previously. Otherwise the oil may harden below 37F like olive oil does.,

I lost so much hair due to salt water. What to do now?

Lost hair on the top portion and sides, help.. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: Salt water
