Now, make a paste of the following herbs: 5 petal Hibiscus,
Vettiver (this is a root),
Vallarai powder (also called Brahmi - a little - this is also a herb),
Karisalanganni powder (also called Bringhraj - this is a herb which has darkening effects on the hair and it makes the hair voluminous and healthier),
also add adhimadhuram (also called mulethi or Liquorice – Glycyrrhiza Galbra - this is a herb which cures itch and prevents dandruff).

Jeera in hair oil interesting?

Jeera (Cumin seeds) actually enhances blackening of the hair - some people just boil jeera in coconut oil and use it as a hair darkener (I read this somewhere - don't know if it is true)
