2. Hair Care
Sesame oil has a variety of uses in Ayurveda medicine. It’s a base-oil for the preparation of many polyherbal oils, including hair-treatment formulas. Ayurveda practitioners recommend that using sesame oil for hair care is best in the cold, dry winter months. Sesame oil has an inherent healing property that provides the scalp, follicles, and hair with a moisturizing effect.
Polyphenol antioxidants, sesamolin, and sesamin detoxify tissues, limit oxidative stress, and reduce scalp inflammation. Individuals suffering from skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis will benefit from regular administration of sesame oil to the scalp.
Rich in vitamin E, sesame oil penetrates deep into the skin, hydrating the scalp, and restoring the health of your hair. Regular use of sesame oil as a hair treatment will protect against greying and hair loss. Blending sesame oil with Amla or gooseberry oil creates a tonic that’s effective at rejuvenating hair. Apply it to hair damaged by exposure to UV rays, or harsh environmental elements.
