Beautiful winter brings with it a slew of hair-related issues, including hair breakage, severe dandruff, split ends, hair fall, and frizz. These issues leave us wondering how we might care for our hair naturally and efficiently.
Herbal hair oils have been around for a long time and have time and again proven to be elixirs when it comes to hair care. These oils, when naturally obtained, and organically grownorganic-certified retain critical characteristics that can address hair issues such as thinning hair and a dry, flaky scalp, and more.
These oils function by initiating hair development, deeply moisturizing, nourishing, improving scalp blood circulation, preventing dandruff, and adding volume to the hair shaft, among other things.
Three Best Winter Herbal Hair Oils
Here are some types of herbal hair oil to nourish your tresses. We recommend massaging these oils into your scalp regularly to achieve thick, lustrous hair:
1. Bhringraj Oil
Bhringraj means "lord of herbs" in the literal sense. Eclipta Alba is another name for it. Bhringraj promotes hair growth as well as reversing baldness and delaying premature greying. It revitalizes hair follicles and provides a relaxing sensation when applied to the scalp.
Life & Pursuits’ Bhringraj Oil is rich in herbs proven to significantly prevent hair fall, hair loss, and dandruff when used daily. These nutrients also aid hair development.
Apply oil onto your hair by parting it in portions and applying in the middle. Then, work your way down to your tresses, starting with the scalp. Massage the oil into your scalp carefully and leave it on for 45-60 minutes, best overnight. Use it 2-3 times each week for at least 3-4 months for optimal effects.
2. Amla oil
Amla, the Indian gooseberry, is a potent Ayurvedic treatment for hair fall and lackluster tresses. This nutritional component also helps prevent dandruff, dryness, and itching on the scalp.
Amla, often known as the immortality juice, is a haircare superstar in every way possible. Organic Amla oil should be your go-to if you're struggling to find the correct kind of oil for essential hair maintenance, regardless of your hair type. Amla nourishes and conditions the scalp, and because it is high in Vitamin C, it strengthens the hair from the roots up.
Suppose you want to use the amla hair oil with the added power of Brahmi – another potent Ayurvedic ingredient known for its therapeutic properties. In that case, you can try Amla Oil.
Begin by parting your hair in the center and applying the oil. Concentrate on the scalp and work your way down to your tresses. Massage the oil into the scalp gently to absorb the nutrients and leave it for 30-45 minutes, best overnight, before washing. For optimal results, apply it once or twice a week. Apply your regular shampoo and conditioner after that.
3. Sesame oil
Sesame oil is an emollient, which means it helps soften your skin and make your hair strands look smoother by filling gaps at the cellular level. In addition, sesame oil's omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids make it ideal for treating dry hair and scalp topically.
Antibacterial and antifungal properties in sesame seeds and sesame oil may aid in the prevention or reduction of frequent scalp infections.
Sesame oil applied to the scalp and hair may aid in the reduction of dandruff. In addition, because sesame oil has some occlusive characteristics, it may help the skin stay hydrated if applied to a clean scalp. This can aid in preventing and treating dryness, flaking, and irritation on the scalp.
Opt for the purest sesame oil you can get with Life & Pursuits’ Cold-Pressed Sesame Oil.
To begin, part your hair down the middle and apply the oil. Start at the top of your head and work your way down to your tresses. Next, massage the oil into the scalp gently to allow the nutrients to permeate. Apply it once or twice a week for best effects. After that, use your regular shampoo and conditioner.
Essential Tips for Winter Hair Care
Winter calls for extra hair care. This is because the season’s sudden change can come with its perils on your tresses. These valuable tips might help:
- Make sure you're getting plenty of water to stay hydrated. Regular water consumption improves mineral circulation in the bloodstream, which hydrates and nourishes hair roots.
- Hair can become brittle and damaged due to the cold winter winds. Before going outside, make sure you cover your hair with a scarf or beanie to prevent exposure to dry winter wind.
- At least three times a week, oil your hair to help seal in moisture and feed the roots.
- Avoid using hot water to wash your hair because it causes it to become dry and frizzy.
With the help of these herbal hair oils, you can flaunt thick, lustrous, and healthy locks this winter. For thousands of years, the ancient science of Ayurveda has helped keep millions healthy from within.
