Fenugreek and coconut oil combined

You can leave it in for as long as you want although Coconut oil can have a change in smell almost like sour milk if left on too long. Leaving it on for several days will not speed up the process. If you wish, one option is to lightly coat every night before bed.

If you had thick hair recently that started to become thinner, then it might be a temporary change that can be treated with an Ayurvedic oil from the article and other treatments like shampoos and herbs. I recommend burdock oil with nettle or pepper or cayenne pepper oil. Bio-growth (bio-stimulator) shampoos from various brands might speed up growing hair too. Scalp massages should be done by specialists, as vigorous or incorrect techniques may prevent getting thick hair. Also, temporary thinning can be caused by medicine like antibiotics. As soon as you stop taking them, the hair will go back to normal.
