Why You Should Use Sesame Oil For Your Hair

Written By:

We've all heard about the amazing benefits of common oils like coconut oil and almond oil. However, sesame oil isn't really that common, is it? But here's why you should definitely include sesame oil in your beauty regimen!

It is a healing and extremely lubricating oil. It has a very thick texture and some people may not like that fact, but once you get over that fact, it is an amazing idea to use it on your hair. It is often used to flavour food and as a cooking oil.

It has nutrients like magnesium, vitamin B complex, vitamin E and calcium, which make it a really beneficial oil combined with nutrients that you'd mostly find in a lot of different oils.

So, get right ahead and start using it for your hair. You'd be surprised as all your tremendous hair problems will start disappearing one by one once you start using sesame oil.

Even eating sesame seeds can help with your hair and skin problems, although we will be focussing on the application of the oil in this article.

So, here's why you should use sesame oil on your hair! Take a look.

1. To Treat Damaged Hair: It nourishes the scalp from deep within and helps damaged hair get revitalised and reverses the damage as well.
