Benefits of oiling hair
When we were in school, weekends and holidays were the only days when our grandmothers oiled our hair. But as we grow up, we take out very less time for hair care. As a result, our hair become weak, dry and dull. But oiling is the solution. Read on!
1. Helps in hair growth
Oiling helps in hair growth. It increases the circulation of blood in the scalp which brings hair to life. Since our hair need proteins, vitamins and minerals for hair growth, oiling hair makes blood circulation active which helps provide proper nutrients to the hair follicles.
2. Strengthens hair
Oiling helps in strengthening hair protein. Hair become brittle and tends to break. Oiling provides hair with the much needed nourishment which strengthens the hair. Hair oil such as castor oil, almond oil and olive oil help to regain the old strength of the protein.
3. Prevents dandruff
Dandruff happens due to dry scalp. Dry scalp causes flaking which results in itching. Dandruff also leads to acne and hair fall. Regular application of oiling stops the scalp from drying out and hence prevents dandruff, hair fall and acne.
4. Shine and lustre
Every person wants to have shiny hair. Shiny hair is the most important characteristic of healthy hair. Regular oiling keeps hair well stranded in a single thread than like lint of thread. This gives them overall and complete luster and shine.
5. Prevents scalp infections
Oiling helps prevent bacterial and fungal infections. These can happen due to the blocking of hair follicles. Blocked hair follicles can lead to hair fall and dandruff and can also stop the hair from receiving nutrition.
