5 Benefits of essential oils to the hair

Essential oils are nature’s gift to humankind. They are highly concentrated in plants, and they have amazing medical and therapeutic benefits. Even in ancient times, people are reported to have used essential oils to treat various health conditions like scalp dryness, hair loss, and balding. Let’s look at the benefits of essential oils for the hair.

Increase blood circulation

Because they ease muscle pressure and constrict and dilate blood vessels, essential oils can increase blood circulation to the scalp when applied topically. Improved blood circulation increases the supply of vital nutrients to hair follicles, which strengthens them and prevents hair breakage and hair fall.

Balance scalp sebum

Too little sebum in the scalp dehydrates hair follicles and leads to hair fall. Too much sebum also is not beneficial to the hair, and it also leads to hair loss because it collects dirt, grime, and dead cells and blocks hair follicles. Essential oils clean the scalp, rid it of excess sebum, and unblock hair follicles; hence stimulating the growth of new hairs.

Stimulate the scalp

Some essential oils such as peppermint have a tingling sensation when applied to the scalp. This sensation revitalizes and stimulates hair follicles, resulting in the growth of new hairs.

Strengthen hair shafts and strands

Essential oils are rich in antioxidants which prevent the oxidation of free racial cells; thus preventing the damage of living cells. When applied to the hair, essential oils prevent damage to hair cells (the second fastest growing cells in the body). On top of that, they repair the already damaged cells fostering the growth of new, healthier, and thicker hair.

Awaken sleeping follicles

10 percent of your hair is usually in the telogen phase of hair growth which can last for 2-6 months. However, some factors such as poor nutrition and hormonal imbalance can lengthen this stage and impede hair growth. Essential oils reverse this stage by awakening sleeping follicles.

Essential oils are the go-to solution for hair and scalp care for most people. Utilizing other hair solutions such as trimming with the best trimmers from hairclippersclub.com will help you realize more length and thickness.
