The Humble Hibiscus Flower (Japapushpa): For Hair & Skin

Lord Ganesha’s favorite flower-the lovely red hibiscus or the shoe flower as it is popularly called has unique medicinal properties in its flower and leaves. It is packed with goodness for reducing both hair fall and dandruff, and conditioning our crowning glory beautifully.

In Ayurveda,  the humble white hibiscus and red hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-Sinensis), have always been considered to have medicinal properties.  As a hair treatment, the flowers and dried leaves are boiled in oil, in our case pure organic Amla Hair Oil; along with other spices like fenugreek that is sprouted in Aloe Vera leaves, along with Kadi Patta leaves to make a very potent medicated nourishing oil :

Some benefits of Hibiscus for Hair


1. Stimulates hair growth

The naturally occurring amino acids in hibiscus flowers provide the hair with the nutrients that help in promoting hair growth. These amino acids produce a special kind of structural protein called keratin, which is the building block of hair.


Keratin binds the hair makes them less prone to breakage. It also promotes the overall thickness of hair strands and makes hair more manageable. So, instead of turning to expensive keratin treatments that damage hair, you can start using Hibiscus on your hair.


2. Conditions hair


The hibiscus flowers and leaves contain a high amount of mucilage which acts as a natural conditioner. It’s because of this naturally occurring conditioner that crushed Hibiscus flowers and leaves feel slimy to the touch.

The leaves and flowers of Hibiscus are good for promoting new growth, sustaining the dark color of hair, reducing dandruff and hair loss.


4. May treats dandruff and itchy scalp


Hibiscus acts like an astringent and reduces the oil secretion by the glands. Using Hibiscus leaves for hair maintains the pH balance of hair in addition to providing an overall soothing and cooling effect.


5. Can prevent premature greying


Traditionally, Hibiscus was used as a natural dye to mask grey hair. The antioxidants and vitamins present in Hibiscus help in producing melanin, the naturally occurring pigment that may darken the hair.
