Black Seed Oil has strong medicinal benefits when used as part of a regular hair regimen. This highly concentrated oil is made up of tiny black colored seeds that are commonly called “black cumin” but are scientifically called nigella sativa.
The health of your scalp plays a vital role when it comes to the health of your hair. This is because hair is produced in the follicles on your scalp. Issues like oiliness, dandruff, and scalp irritation can hinder the productivity of your follicles by weakening or clogging them. Black seed oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiviral, and analgesic (pain killing) properties that work efficiently towards maintaining scalp health. It effectively deals with issues like dandruff and soothes skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. It also helps keep your scalp moisturized and balances the production of oils.
Black seed oil can help stimulate hair regrowth. Black seed oil contains Nigellone and Thymoquinone, both of which are powerful antihistamines. Antihistamines are commonly prescribed to patients with androgenic alopecia or alopecia areata, and the drugs help regrow hair to a certain extent. Using black seed oil is a safe way to reap the benefits of antihistamines for hair regrowth without having to take any medication.
Curbing hair fall is the most commonly known benefit of black seed oil when it comes to hair. Black seed oil is definitely one of the best ingredients you could use to treat hair fall. Containing over 100 different nutrients, it is a rich source of nourishment for your follicles and hair. The extra nourishment will help nurse your follicles back to health, curbing hair loss.
Black seed oil has antioxidants that help neutralize the effects of free radicals on your hair. This helps keep your hair and scalp healthy and damage-free.
Since it is anti-inflammatory, black seed oil is great when diluted with a carrier oil to soothe scalp conditions that cause inflammation, flakiness, and sensitivity. It also kills viruses and fungal infections, so those with lice can benefit. Like lavender, citrus, and rosemary essential oils, black seed oil is an adjuvant, meaning it works well with other ingredients to provide therapeutic effects.
As far as natural hair goes, black seed oil helps in regrowing thinning edges and areas on your scalp. Fighting the issue early on with black seed oil not only helps curb the problem, but also helps regrow your lost hair once and for all.
