(No, you didn't come to the wrong place. This post is about Coriander oil and not Starbucks coffee)
We all want flawless hair, right? I know I do! I've always had fine/thin hair and I made my peace with it a long time ago. I used to straighten it a lot and now I have fine/thin damaged hair. I had to stop straightening and I tried not to use a lot of products on my hair.
Flash forward a few years, and I'm still paranoid about using straighteners. I rarely straighten my hair! People who had forgotten what the natural texture of my hair looked like, have forgotten what I looked with straight hair. Yes, I had to make peace with the fact that my hair is not my best friend.
I do get rebellious though. It happens every summer when one of my best friends Sara and I go swimming every single day for an entire month. We have a blast swimming for a month and then I have stop because *gulp* I start losing hair. Imagine my misery. This happens every year without a fail! Some one else in my position would just stop swimming altogether. No, not I! I ditch Sara for the rest of the summer and then start obsessing over my hair.
What do I do? I start oiling my hair. (did I even say that correctly?)
Two years ago (brace your selves for another story) I changed my shampoo for a few days and got dandruff. I started using Coriander (dhania) oil for the dandruff. I can't recommend this enough for people who are suffering from it!! You will see the difference within days (for me it took two days).
I've always noticed that when I start using this oil I have less hair in my brush. It's also easier for me to brush my hair. My hair does look a lot more shiny and has noticeably more life in it. Obviously it's no miracle worker. It does help in hair regrowth and hair fall, but for that give it a few weeks before you see a difference. There will be difference in your hair though with time. What you won't like about this oil is the smell. It has a strong funky smell to it, but you'll get use to it.
I store mine in whatever bottle I have laying around. This time I stored it in the Starbucks bottle. You'll find Coriander oil in your local markets where herbal products are available. Also, try looking for a store that sells herbs and oils, I'm sure you'll find it there.
I hope this post is helpful. I know what a misery hair can be and this is something that saves my hair every time.
