Palm Oil for hair growth
Up until recently, coconut oil has gotten all the attention. But now palm oil is catching up as the new king of healthy oils for hair growth.
First, it’s loaded with tocotrienols, a member of the Vitamin E family and Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant. Palm oil also has the most Vitamin A and contains carotenoids beta-carotene, essential fatty acids, polyphenolic acids and flavonoids. All of which may decrease inflammation says the National Institutes of Health.
Herbal Infused Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is still considered by most to be the #1 king of healthy oils. Known for aiding everything from cardiovascular problems and weight loss to — you guessed it — decreasing shedding hair. It’s full of natural antioxidants and other nutrients. It stimulates circulation when you rub it into your scalp and contains auric acid–which binds to the protein in hair and decreases hair breakage. For an extra boost, add some hair growth-promoting herbs like saw palmetto.
Rosemary-infused Olive Oil
Rosemary is an herb that promotes hair growth. While olive oil is one of the healthiest oils around; in fact, it’s so full of antioxidants. Olive oil is also recommended for us as part of an anti-inflammatory diet. Combined, rosemary and olive oil will give your scalp the nourishment it so desires!
Ashwagandha Essential Oil
Ashwagandha is sometimes referred to as “Indian Ginseng,” because it energizes, boosts immunity, stimulates and rejuvenates. Yet, it also possesses anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties — and actually promotes a healthy sleep!
Lavender, with its soft, sweet scent, both rejuvenates and relaxes. It eliminating stress and anxiety — and that means it gets rid of stress hormones, causes of hair loss. When applied directly to the scalp, it stimulates and increases circulation — and it aids other contributing factors, like dry and flaky scalp.
