Finding natural remedies for healthy hair growth is a must when you return to natural hair. Those who are unfamiliar with health and herbs will find that world to be quite amazing, especially once you learn all of the grand benefits that come along with obtaining the two.

By now, you should know that having a healthy body is the key to healthy hair and growth. With the use of various herbs, you can help obtain and maintain a healthy body, which will translate to healthy hair growth.

Moringa is an African tree that a lot of you may have heard of, but did you know that there are different ways you can use it to promote hair growth?

I’ve been using it for years, but for health reasons, and find that it does indeed help with hair health too. There are different forms of moringa that you can use to achieve the results you want, including moringa leaf and moringa seed oil. You can find people talking who have used these products talking about their results all over the web.

If you’re looking for a natural remedy for your natural hair growth, then it’s time you focused on diet, nutrition and all-natural remedies.

Eating healthier will help to ensure that you get the max benefits from the herbs you consume internally and externally. So let’s get into the benefits of these two forms of moringa and how to use them to achieve longer hair.

How moringa promotes hair growth

Moringa is well-known for its nutritional properties, which consists of more calcium, vitamin A, iron, vitamin C and potassium than foods like milk, carrots, spinach, oranges and bananas.

Because of its high concentrations of vitamins and minerals, it is able to give your body optimum health in ways that diet alone can’t. The nutrition found in moringa is more easily absorbed into the body compared to synthetic vitamins and supplements, which is why it provides visual benefits much quicker.

When it comes to your hair, moringa is able to improve the appearance of your hair, making it look shinier and healthier. This is because it has amino acids that are needed for keratin protein production. As your health is being improved by the consumption of moringa leaf, you can also combat common problems like breakage, dandruff and split ends.

The high content of vitamin A, zinc, vitamin E, B vitamins and silica are what helps to stimulate your natural hair growth, while at the same time addressing dryness, hair loss, brittleness and dandruff.

It also helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients throughout your circulatory system, so that your hair follicles are revived and prepped for growth. It even promotes sebum, which gives your hair natural moisture and gloss.

How to use moringa leaf powder

You can purchase moringa leaf powder online from places like Amazon, eBay or Znaturalfoods, depending on the quantity you want. Just make sure that it’s organic. You can use moringa leaf powder in two ways. I have personally consumed it in both forms, but I do prefer smoothies over tea.

In a smoothie, I like to use a nut or hemp milk with the moringa leaf (about 1/2 to 1 TB worth). I also mix other powders with it, like baobab, spirulina and seaweeds, which all help to provide high nutrition for hair health.

For tea, all you need to do is bring 8 oz of water to a boil and then pour in 1 tsp of moringa leaf and set it to simmer. Allow it to do so for about 10 minutes, then add in your preferred sweetener and drink it. I personally like to either use date syrup, 100% maple syrup or coconut sugar.

How to use moringa seed oil

The other option for using moringa is in oil form. The seed of the moringa plant is just as nutritious for your hair and scalp.

I’ve found testimonials all around the Web that swear by moringa seed oil and how it has helped to reverse hair loss, hair thinning and alopecia. I would highly recommend combining moringa seed oil with drinking moringa leaf powder.

Some use the concentrated moringa extract version, but whichever you decide to use, just make sure that the oil is organic, unrefined and cold pressed. This will ensure that it has all of its nutrients.

All you have to do is massage the oil into your entire scalp, especially the areas with balding. You can use it as a deep conditioning treatment or just apply it daily to your scalp.

There’s really no wrong way to go with moringa oil. Since it is able to cleanse well, you can apply it to your wet scalp then rinse it out and it will help to remove excess oils and dirt. It will also leave your scalp moisturized.

I have used moringa oil in my own and my daughter’s hair and love how it makes our curls look. So again, it is definitely a multi-purpose hair remedy, which leaves you with plenty of room for experimentation!

My name is Clement Matorwmasen. Together with my wife I have co-founded Green Gold Social Enterprise. Since childhood I have always been a social and environmental activist and I was a youth leader in many activist groups. As a child I grew up in difficult circumstances when my parents abandoned me and I grew up at the homes of different foreign missionaries. As a teenager I re-established the contact with my family members and my tribe and I learned I was high up in the royal family lineage. I now have very strong ties to my tribe and I want to make a difference in not only their lives, but that of all Ghanaians. When I reconnected with my family, I was already running several not-for-profit projects trying to improve the living conditions in several poor communities, like organising finances for a community boreholes to improve access to clean drinking water. I was doing this alongside my teaching job as an IT-specialist at a tertiary institution. In 2007 my boss and mentor introduced me to Moringa. I was intrigued and went to learn more about the plant and all its qualities and I saw it as a potential solution to combat malnutrition in our communities. This inspired me to set up my own NGO called Drive Aid Ghana and we started promoting the usage and cultivation of Moringa. I was happy that I could make a difference for some people, but scaling and sustaining our activities were highly problematic. Initially I was able to interest farmers in growing Moringa, but mostly they ended up cutting it down because they were not able to generate income from it. This was because there was no established local market. They also challenged me: ‘if Moringa is so useful and if you can earn so much money with it, then why don’t you do it yourself?’ These experiences made me think and slowly the idea of starting a social enterprise to promote Moringa as a cash crop started to develop. With the full support of my wife I handed over my IT-business to my brother and went full-time into developing our social enterprise Green Gold. We have been donated an abandoned state farm of 3000 ha by one of our communities, which we are currently developing into a Moringa plantation and processing factory. My quest is simply to make a difference in other people’s lives and to make the world a better place one smile at a time, Moringa is my pivot point for sustainable development
