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.
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 HairHere are some of the key ways cloves support healthy hair growth:
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.
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.
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:
Add a teaspoon of clove oil or powder to conditioner.
Mix ground cloves into masks with ingredients like avocado or coconut oil.
Combine with other stimulating herbs like rosemary or peppermint in oil infusions.
