Suffering from hair loss and alopecia? and you want natural treatments to tackle hair loss, then there’s good news, because there are some hair oils which can really fasten up hair growth, tackle hair fall, and improve the overall quality of the hair. Unfortunately, I cannot keep hair oils on my head, but I know that a lot of people who have beautiful and long hair use certain oils. If you are suffering from thinning of hair, scalp problems, dandruff, and other hair issues, do try these if every other remedy in the book has failed. Some people dismiss the “hair oil-hair growth” theory, but a lot of people who have had long and healthy hair by using hair oils say otherwise. So, here’s a list of the best hair oils that would aid in faster hair growth.
1. Castor Hair Oil:
Castor oil is rich in vitamin E, proteins, minerals. Its a very viscous oil and its hard to wash it off the hair, but that’s the only con. It works wonders on hair. Castor oil has anti-microbial properties, that will help you get rid of dandruff and other scalp issues. Castor oil contains ricinoleic acid which treats scalp inflammations and diseases. Castor oil moisturizes and softens hair, maintaining the moisture level in the hair. Castor oil aids in blood circulation and therefore results in faster hair growth. Since it is moisturizing in nature, it can be used to treat dry scalp. To use, apply it well on scalp and run through the hair, leave overnight, and wash it with a mild shampoo the next day. Regular use of castor oil gives you healthy, thick, shiny, and moisturized hair.
