Curry leaves have great benefits. Mostly people who eat curry leaves in their food tend to have jet black hair as  it avoids premature graying. You can mix some curry leaves in coconut oil and boil it for 10 to 15 mins. Now you can use this oil for your hair. My mom makes for this type of hair oil. If you don’t like curry leaves you can have them in the form of powder.
