Cloves are a versatile spice loaded with beneficial nutrients, antioxidants and essential oils that support healthy hair. But to unlock their full hair-boosting potential, it’s important to know how to properly prepare and use cloves.

How to Prepare Cloves for Hair Growth

Preparing cloves for optimal hair benefits involves first drying them fully, then grinding into a powder to release oils, before infusing into carrier oils or making hair rinses to apply topically to the scalp.

Dry Them Fully

Spread cloves on a baking sheet and allow to dry for 1-2 weeks until completely dried out.

Grind into Powder

Use a spice grinder or mortar and pestle to finely grind cloves to maximize exposed surface area.

Sift Powder

Removing any big pieces ensures all powder is finely ground for better extraction.

Infuse in Oil

Steep powder in coconut or olive oil so the oil pulls beneficial compounds from the cloves.

Make a Hair Rinse

Add ground clove powder to water and use as a stimulating rinse for the scalp.

Benefits of Cloves for Hair

Here are some of the key ways cloves support healthy hair growth:

Stimulates Follicles

Cloves improve circulation to follicles to encourage growth.


Eugenol in cloves reduces scalp inflammation that can inhibit follicles.


Cloves cleanse the scalp of dandruff and microbes harming hair.

Smooths Strands

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids that control frizz and add shine.

Tips for Preparing Cloves

Follow these tips for getting the most out of cloves for your hair:

Check for Mold

Inspect cloves and discard any with signs of mold or mildew.

Dry Thoroughly

Any moisture remaining will limit shelf life and potency.

Grind to a Fine Powder

The smaller the grind, the better it infuses and releases oils.

Store Properly in Air-Tight Container

Light and oxygen degrade ground cloves - store in dark, sealed jar.

How Often to Use Cloves for Hair Growth

Using a clove oil treatment 1-2 times per week provides good results. Rinses with ground clove powder can be used 2-3 times weekly.

Other Ways to Use Cloves for Hair

You can also incorporate cloves into:

Conditioner Boosters

Add a teaspoon of clove oil or powder to conditioner.

Hair Masks

Mix ground cloves into masks with ingredients like avocado or coconut oil.

Herbal Blends

Combine with other stimulating herbs like rosemary or peppermint in oil infusions.
