IMG_4154Curry Leaves has vital nutrients that especially works in restoring the strength of hair follicles. Each and every one are concerned about hair growth and proper nutrition for hair. We all could have come across many a forwarded messages regarding the importance of curry leaves which plays an important role on hair growth. Nowadays the store bought oil are completely adulterated because of the sulphur content they use in coconut to prevent them from fungus and also to maintain the white color when it is stored. This adding of sulphur I have personally seen in oil stores when we take the Copra(Dry coconut) for sale. so it is better to use a coconut oil prepared using cold pressed process / Chekku ennui / Ghani method (A traditional method used for extracting oil where a wooden unit is rotated manually/using bullocks )
