Hibiscus leaves or flowers have been used in hair care products. The leaves are known to condition the hair; the flower used as a remedy for dandruff. Some variety of hibiscus flowers seem to help hair growth or seem to reduce grey hairs. Some people also use flowers to make hair oil.
What do you do with the hibiscus leaves that you prune or the flowers that dry?
I use the leaves and, sometimes, flowers to make a hair pack. This is how I prepare the hair pack. I collect the dried flowers, and when I prune the plants, I ensure to store a few fresh leaves (from different colored hibiscus plants). I blend the flowers and leaves in a mixer, with very little water. Along with these extracts, I also add a few Neem leaves or Amrutha Balli (Tonospora cordifoli) leaves. Both these leaves have medicinal properties; they tend to reduce dandruff or skin allergies.
