Oils are great – grapeseed oil, coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil. Grapeseed oil is the oil I use the most. It’s amazing for your skin and it takes off makeup so easily. And there are many benefits of grapeseed oil for hair. Let’s get into that, shall we?
WHAT IS GRAPESEED OIL?
Grapeseed oil is pressed from the seeds of grapes. It’s known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it’s a great source of vitamin E, and it’s often used in many skincare products.
IS GRAPESEED OIL GOOD FOR MY SKIN?
Yes, I have a whole post about the benefits of grapeseed oil for skincare. Some of the most famous ones are it treats acne, fades scars, and lightens dark circles.
WHAT ABOUT HAIR?
Yes, yes, and yes! Grapeseed oil is a natural sealant, and it keeps moisture in the hair follicle, which prevents hair from getting dry. It’s lighter than other oils and it gets absorbed quickly which makes it ideal for frequent use.
BENEFITS OF GRAPESEED OIL FOR HAIR
- Hair moisturizer
This cold-pressed oil is high in fat and that makes it a great hair moisturizer. It has a light texture and won’t weigh your hair down. Use it a couple of times a week to moisturize your hair throughout the week.
- Promotes hair growth
Grapeseed oil has high amounts of linoleic acid or omega 6 fatty acids which promote hair growth and stimulate hair cell production.
- Reduce dandruff
Massaging the oil into your scalp in a circular motion and letting it absorb will moisturize and nourish the skin on your head and reduce dandruff.
- Hair strengthener
This oil is high in vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that helps build tissue and restore the strength and shine in your hair. Heat some grapeseed oil and massage it in your scalp. Next, wrap your hair in a towel and leave it overnight. The next day you may have to wash your hair a couple of times. The results are healthier and stronger hair.
