OILS And Their Benefits To Our Hair

Argan oil-  Does not come cheap,  but its effects are nothing short of  spectacular. Many problems such  as dry  hair,  rough hair,  dull hair and frizzy  hair can  be solved  with  the use of this wonder hair  oil.  It is rich in vitamin E and contains  omega 3 and omega 9  fatty acids  that  provide nutrition for hair. In addition to these, it  also  contains  Linoleic and  oleic acid that helps to  hydrate and  moisturize hair.It restores the lost luster from  too much  hair straightening and other chemical treatments,  helps  keep the color vibrant  and to prevent  dryness in  color treated hair, acts  as a shield from harmful  UV rays  and protects  the hair  from environmental  pollution. 

Jojoba Oil- The  debate is whether  jojoba is  the king of  the carrier oils. Many  scalp related problems are caused by a hardened  build-up of sebum that clogs the hair  follicles and may cause some types of scaling. If  this hardened build-up is not  removed,  it  can  eventually  obstruct the hair follicle’s ability  to  function properly, jojoba rapidly  penetrates  down  to  the scalp and hair shaft,  and readily  loosens and dissolves this hardened build-up. The  scalp and  hair  follicles  are left clean and free to  continue  their normal function. Jojoba is great  for all hair types and has an  ability to inhibit excess activity  of the  sebaceous  glands making  it  the perfect  choice for people with  oily  scalps that  still need conditioning.  Likewise it  can  be  used for dry  hair as it  helps to moisturize your  hair properly. 

Almond  Oil- The  nutrients in  almond  oil make it  an  ideal  solution  to  many  hair problems and to  maintain healthy  hair.  The combination  of  fats  and fatty  acids in  almond  oil softens,  strengthens and  nourishes the hair. Almond oil  has been recommended as a  hair  growth  agent for  centuries. Almond oil  is often  used in people who  have  issues with  hair loss or breakage.  An  almond oil  scalp scrub  has  also been used for  hair loss and breakage. With the  benefits  of  Vitamin E  and  potassium,  almond  oil helps with  hair fall out  and breakage as a natural hair loss treatment.  In  the event  of dry  scalp,  almond  oil nourishes and moisturizes the scalp, and removes  the  flakiness.

   Olive Oil  –  Only  olive oil that  is labelled “extra  virgin”  guarantees that  the oil has  been cold pressed from freshly harvested olives  and  does not  contain chemicals.  Extra virgin  olive oil that  is green  in color is of higher quality  than golden-yellow  oil.  Olive oil helps in  preventing  as  well  as curing  hair loss as  it  prevents the production  of  the  hormone DTH  which causes the hair follicle shaft  to decrease.  Regular application  of olive oil to hair prevents the production of DTH hormones on  the scalp,  thus getting rid of the problem of hair loss.  For relaxed/permed hair ladies excessive chemical use can  cause hair damage,  olive oil contains antioxidants  that  promotes a healthy  hair  and scalp.  Olive  oil strengthens and smooths  hair cuticles. 

Coconut Oil  - Coconut  oil  consists  of more than  ninety  percent of  saturated fats  Vitamin-E and Vitamin K and minerals  such  as Iron.  Coconut oil  is considered one of  the best natural nutrition  for hair  and is in contention  with  olive and jojoba oils as the  king  of  the carrier oils.  It  is  an  excellent  conditioner and  helps in the re-growth of  damaged hair. It also provides the essential  proteins required  for nourishing damaged hair and it  softens  the  hair and conditions  the  scalp.

 Castor Oil  – is a vegetable oil obtained from the castor bean.  Castor oil  is a colorless to  very  pale yellow liquid with  mild  or no odor or taste.  It is rich in  ricinoleic acid and can  be  used  to treat  skin  conditions  such as fungal infections.  It  nourishes  hair and prevents  the scalp from drying  by  retaining moisture.  Castor oil added to  hair care products  helps to  seal moisture, softens,  and  visibly thickens  hair. Castor oil can also be used by  itself  on  the  hair to  seal in  moisture.

 Vitamin  E  Oil  -  Proper circulation  leads to  thriving  hair follicles  which leads to  hair growth. Vitamin  E contains  valuable antioxidants that  help to keep the  immune system  up  and improves circulation  to  all parts of the  body, including the  scalp. When added to  homemade products, Vitamin  E extends  their shelf life.  This oil   rejuvenates and offers protection  for the scalp and  skin.

 Avocado Oil- is extracted from the king of  the ‘hair’ fruits avocado.  It is full  of vitamins that  your  hair needs like vitamins A, E,  D  and  potassium. If  you want  a super deep conditioner treatment without  having to buy a  commercial preparation, you can add  avocado oil  to  the other carrier oils  and you  will  definitely feel and see the  difference.
