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:

grinding papaya seeds

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.

Is anyone try this ??


how many weeks are we talking ,before growing my hair

Aniela M

It’s very hard to say as it completely depends on your own hair and the rate at which it grows. As with any natural hair growth treatment, we recommend being persistent for at least a month and then see how it goes from there! Let us know how it works out for you 🙂

Yes, you absolutely can! Papaya seeds encourage hair growth as well as overall hair health. Just be sure to grind them into a fine powder first 🙂
