Castor oil: One of the most effective home remedies for dry scalp, hair thinning, split ends and hair loss, castor oil is widely used since decades in various beauty treatments. Owing to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, it is also a common ingredient in many cosmetics and beauty products. Being rich in proteins, minerals and vitamin E, castor oil works as a magic potion for your hair. Here’s how it benefits your hair and ways you can use it: Castor oil carries ricinoleic acid and omega- 6 essential fatty acids, which accelerate blood circulation to the scalp, hence increasing hair growth. It works on nourishing the scalp and strengthening the roots with the help of essential nutrients. Since castor oil possesses anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties, it is the perfect remedy to tackle scalp infections and issues such as bald patches, itchy scalp. These properties reach out to fight pathogens and micro-organisms. Additionally, it clears off the most common hair problem – dandruff. Castor oil is ‘moisture rich’ and penetrates deep into the scalp and conditions the hair immediately. This oil is hence, an easy way to regain lost shine and hair texture. With its exceptional moisturising and conditioning properties, castor oil leaves a coating on the hair shaft to lock the much-needed moisture in.
Amla oil: Amla (also known as amalika or Indian gooseberry) is a common name of emblic myrobalan. This species of tree grows in Indian Peninsula, Indochina and Malaysia where it is used for Ayurveda – a traditional natural Hindu medicine. The oil is extracted from Amla fruits which are similar to our European goosegog – these are small berries of yellow and green colour that are very sour in taste. Such a natural product has well-recognized antiviral and antibacterial action. In short, Amla oil is perceived as a medical product of cosmetic features. Although Amla oil is a wonderful medicine curing many ailments, most women are more interested in this product’s cosmetic features. Actually, Amla oil can be compared to our common castor oil because these two natural substances work alike. For example, they speed up hair growth, pamper hair, eliminate problem of excessive hair loss and additionally make hair darker. Amla oil together with Indian gooseberry are a great alternative to popular methods applied for making hair grow faster or for covering grey hair.
Avocado oil: Of all the vitamins, avocado oil is rich in Vitamin E and B. These Vitamins works in a deeper level by penetrating into the epidermis thereby strengthening the hair. Vitamin B also supports hair growth, while Vitamin E is associated more with the repairing of hair damage. The monounsaturated fatty acid present in avocado oil is even higher than that of extra virgin olive oil and is one of the prime reasons why it is so good for your hair. Many people suffer from dry, damaged and weak hair due to chemical treatments or environmental pollution. Monounsaturated fats, when applied directly in a hair mask, will nourish and strengthen hair strands, thereby improving the way they look and protecting them from further damage. Massaging avocado oil into your scalp also prompts blood flow to your hair follicles. This will help more nutrients to reach the follicles quickly and work up on them to bring new growth and healthier hair in general. Finally, and perhaps most beneficially for hair care, its monounsaturated fatty acids and high levels of antioxidants like vitamin E, are well absorbed into our scalp and hair strands. This not only has a highly moisturizing and protective effect against environmental damage, but it may also stimulate new growth and help unclog blocked follicles.
It is recommended that you apply a hair oil treatment once a week using the pipette provided and apply directly to sectioned hair until your hair appears to be wet.
