Papaya Seeds for Hair Growth

First off, you'll need a ripe (but not too ripe) papaya. Papayas can be found at your local grocery store, and depending on the season, can be cheap or a little more expensive. In either case, you can extract a good amount of seeds from just one papaya!

Step 1:

Scoop out the seeds from the papaya and rinse them in a strainer. Make sure to remove any remaining pulp.

Step 2:
drying papya seeds

Lay the seeds onto a tea towel and place them somewhere to dry. Outdoors in the sun would be best! If you have a dehydrator, you can also place the seeds in the dehydrator to dry.

Step 3:

Once the seeds have dried, it's time to turn them into powder! You can break up the seeds either by using a mortar and pestle or by grinding them in a cover or spice grinder.

Step 4:

Add the papaya seeds powder to your favorite shampoo (preferably a natural shampoo) and shake the bottle well. Wash your hair as you normally would. Be sure to shake the bottle up before every use as the powder might settle at the bottom.

There you have it! It's easy to do, and the results will astonish you! Shampoo your hair as often or as rarely as you usually do and wash your hair normally. Within just a few weeks, you'll notice stronger, healthier, and longer hair. Because of the papain enzyme, the hair follicles will strengthen which in turn will make the hair grow faster.

do you have to grind the papaya seeds before?

Calliope

this worked for me! I ground up the papaya seeds really really well and I added them to my conditioner. I leave the conditioner on for for 10-15 minutes and then rinse it right out. It’s made my hair stronger and it started to grow faster too!!

Bcs of my kind of hair #dandrufhair I washes my hair every morning otherwise it itches me so bad and to avoid scratching which will lead to bleeding, I now wash it everyday. I don’t make hair bcs of dandruff and also breakage too, I keep low cut but I love to have good natural hair like some females. So seeing this ur process, I have dried the papaya seed and even blend to powder! Now my question is ?

How many times a week am I supposed to use it to wash my hair now? Please reply
Thank you

Joy

And again the hair can be on low cut for even up to 3-4 years without growing any inch I mean without any inch at all but instead it breaks very well
The last time I cut this hair was 2018 and till date it’s still low, no movement. So you see the problem I have?

Joy

God bless you for that Aniela M
That means I have been making mistake all this while! I will try and endure the daily itching for the days I wouldn’t wash

(BUT YOU DIDN’T TELL ME HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK OR IN A MONTH SHOULD I USE IT ON MY HAIR)

I USE TEA TREE MOISTURISING SHAMPOO”

THE COCONUT MASSAGE, SHOULD I USE THAT ONE DAILY BEFORE COMBING MY HAIR EVERY MORNING OR ANY TIME I WASH WITH THE MIXTURE?

PLEASE TELL ME QUICKLY…. I CANT WAIT TO START USING THIS PRODUCT ON MY HAIR
