Sesame oil has been a very important component of age old hair care treatments. Remember how our ancestors always had long, thick, black hair? All of this can be attributed to the use of sesame oil for nourishing the hair. So why should we be left behind? How about using sesame oil to get shiny and thick hair ourselves?

Enriched with vitamins B and E, proteins, calcium and many other important minerals, sesame oil goes deep into the scalp to nourish hair from root to tip and leave you with a luscious mane of soft, shiny and strong hair.

Start applying sesame oil to your hair once or twice a week and you will notice a difference in no time. Remember to warm up the oil and apply it to the scalp. Give yourself a relaxing head massage, put on a shower cap and head to bed. Wake up next morning and wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner and your hair will feel unlike ever before. But sesame oil does more than just make your hair appear more beautiful. Read on to find out more about multiple other nourishing benefits of sesame oil.

  1. Prevents Premature Greying

Sesame oil boosts the pigmentation in the hair. It helps enhance the natural hair color and prevents premature graying. Massaging the hair with sesame oil regularly can help darken the color and reduce stray grey strands in the hair. One of the principal properties of sesame oil is its darkening property. If you apply it two to three times a week and leave it on overnight, your hair will retain the natural color and delay the graying process.

  1. Protects Hair

Sesame oil acts as a natural sunscreen that can protect the hair from damage due to exposure to harmful UV rays. When applied, the oil creates a layer of protection on the scalp and along the hair shaft which keeps it safe from the damaging rays. It even coats the scalp and prevents the negative effects of pollution from causing harm to the scalp and hair follicle. Regular application of sesame oil can prevent hair from becoming dry and brittle due to excessive sun exposure.

  1. Boosts Hair Growth

When massaged into the scalp, sesame oil penetrates deep inside to reach the absolute hair root. Here it moisturizes the roots and provides it with the nourishment it needs to boost hair growth. Massaging it into the scalp also drastically boosts the blood circulation at the scalp which helps the roots to become stronger and grow faster. Even for hair that has become damaged due to excessive treatments or use of products, sesame oil can return the hair to its natural shine and quality.

  1. Prevents And Treats Lice

Sesame oil has antibacterial properties which can treat all types of fungal and bacterial infections of the scalp. In case of head lice, applying sesame oil can kill the lice and reduce the infestation. Massaging the scalp with sesame oil every alternate day and washing it off with sesame oil can treat the problem of head lice and even prevent it from reoccurring. You can also mix sesame oil with a few drops of tea tree oil for enhanced effect in treatment of head lice.

  1. Treats Dry Scalp

A dry scalp can lead to many problems. It causes the scalp to become flaky, itchy and irritated. It also begins to damage the quality of hair and it begins to lose the natural luster. Sesame oil has moisturizing properties which can treat a dry scalp. Mix sesame oil with freshly squeezed lemon juice and apply it all over the scalp. Massage it well with your fingers until it has completely coated the scalp. Leave this on overnight and wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner the next morning. If you don’t want to leave it on overnight, you can cover your hair with a hot towel for 1 hour after application to speed up the process.

If your complaints about hair quality have gone up recently, you definitely need to add a bottle of sesame oil to your hair care kit. Use it regularly and see the difference yourself.
