Essential Ingredients Of Hair Oil

Hair care is an important part of caring for body. Hair oils effectively help us in doing so as they contain extracts of organic and natural components. Nature offers us hundreds of ingredients that can be used widely in hair products to reap the benefits naturally. For long, shiny, strong and healthy hair, oil massage is very important and that too with a hair oil that has one or more ingredients as mentioned below:

Coconut Extracts: Oil extracted from the coconut acts like a soothing moisturizer to your hair. Apart from keeping the hair soft, shiny and silky, it also adds strength to the roots. Many beauticians recommend using coconut oil as a leave-in conditioner for thick and black hair. People with dry hair troubles can get immense help by using virgin coconut oil at least twice a week.

Indian Gooseberry or Amla: This has been an ancient remedy for treating a host of hair problems like hair fall, dandruff etc. The extract of this fruit stimulates the hair follicle and encourages hair growth. By nourishing the hair shaft, hair oil containing amla makes the tresses black and shiny. It has excellent cleansing properties, thus prevents dandruff.

Nettle: This has been used since decades to fight hair loss and encourage hair regrowth. Commonly known as stinging nettle, this extract is found in hair tonics, oils and in capsule forms. Nettle also revives hair colour and adds moisture to the strands. It is also known to eliminate dandruff troubles.

Honey: Being a light humectant, honey adds moisture to the hair thus keeping it soft and smooth. It also has antibacterial properties, thus keeps away scalp infections. Often honey and olive oil is mixed together and applied as hair mask for healthy hair.

Jojoba Extract: Jojoba has humectant properties as well and treats damaged ends perfectly. Jojoba oils provide a balanced nutrition to the scalp thereby stimulating hair growth and restraining hair fall. For oily hair, this oil is ideal as it is non-greasy and gives hair a natural shine.

Virgin Olive: An excellent hair softener, olive oil has soothing effects that seals the nutrition within the scalp and softens the hair. Try to get “extra virgin” olive oil as it is completely organic and does not have any chemical treatment done to it. You can use this as a pre-shampoo pack.

The variety of hair oils available in the market has many more ingredients like castor seed extracts, avocado, shea butter, aloe vera, reetha, shikakai etc. A complete balanced nutrition for hair is essential for its health and growth. It is best to have food rich in vitamin C along with dark green vegetables, salmon, beans, nuts, eggs, whole grains, oysters and carrots for healthy hair.
