How to Prepare Clove Water for Hair Growth

Clove is an aromatic spice that is rich in nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K, and fibre.

It also has antifungal and antibacterial properties that can help to prevent scalp infections and stimulate hair growth.

Here’s how to prepare clove water for hair growth:


  • 1 tablespoon of whole cloves
  • 2 cups of water
  • Optional: a few drops of essential oil like rosemary or peppermint oil


Add the whole cloves and water to a small saucepan and bring to a boil.

    Reduce the heat and let the water simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the water turns into a dark brown colour.

    Remove from heat and let it cool down.

    Strain the liquid into a clean container.

    Add a few drops of essential oil (if using) for a pleasant fragrance and added benefits.

    Use the clove water as a final rinse after shampooing your hair. Pour the clove water onto your scalp and hair, making sure to cover all areas. Massage your scalp gently for a few minutes.

    Let the clove water sit on your hair for a few minutes before rinsing off with cool water.

    Clove water can help to improve blood circulation to the scalp, nourish hair follicles, and promote healthy hair growth. It can also help to prevent hair loss, dandruff, and other scalp conditions.

    However, it’s important to note that clove water should not replace any prescribed hair growth treatments, and it’s important to talk to your healthcare provider before making any significant changes to your hair care routine.
