Benefits of Sesame Oil
This highly nourishing hair oil has immense healing properties. Its use has been extensively mentioned in ancient Ayurvedic text for over thousands of years. Listed below are some of the benefits of sesame oil for hair care.
- If you desire dark lustrous hair, then massage your scalp and hair regularly with sesame oil.
- Sesame oil is highly nourishing and excellent for dry scalp treatment. Massaging helps in controlling dryness and flakiness, thus, preventing hair loss.
- A regular warm oil massage increases penetration of oil in the scalp, resulting in enhanced blood circulation, thereby promoting hair growth.
- Chemically treated hair that gets damaged over time, regains its lost luster as the oil's deep penetrating properties nourish the hair from within.
- Sesame oil is also known as a natural healing oil, as it is full of antibacterial properties. It helps clear scalp infection, especially fungal.
- Sesame oil helps in strengthening hair shafts and roots by nourishing them.
- Not only does this oil strengthen your hair, it also promotes new hair growth.
- Split ends and hair prone to breakage and brittleness leading to excessive hair loss benefits from its replenishing and rejuvenating qualities.
- Rough hair can be softened and made more manageable by conditioning.
- Stress is considered as a major factor that results in hair fall, and sesame oil's cooling properties help alleviate stress when massaged in scalp, and on neck and shoulders.
- Rich sesame oil protects hair from the damaging effects of the sun's UV rays, thus, proving to be a natural sunscreen for hair. Not only does it protect hair from the sun, it also saves them from damaging effects of pollution.
- Sesame oil is known for its hair darkening qualities. Hence, it is very useful for those who suffer from pre-mature hair graying or who have plenty of gray hair. Great for dyed hair to keep color!
- This oil can be combined with another carrier oil, like almond oil or olive oil, while massaging hair and scalp to reap combined benefits of both the oils.
