By Natures- Grape Seed Oil 2 oz
,Grapeseed oil benefits for hair can include:
- Hydrating hair
- Adding shine to hair and fighting frizz
- Moisturizing the scalp and helping to reduce dandruff
- Fighting infections/inflammation of the scalp
- Detangling hair
- Protecting hair from UV damage
- Potentially preventing thinning and supporting growth
1. Helps Hydrate and Defrizz Hair
Grapeseed oil is very rich in a type of fatty acid called linoleic acid, which gives it most of its hydrating qualities. Fatty acids found in plant oils can penetrate into hair cuticles, helping to reduce water loss and lock in moisture, while preventing breaking and blocking frizz.
2. Adds Shine
By applying this oil to your scalp you can naturally help to balance your production of sebum, an oily substance that helps make hair shiny and smooth.
To improve the strength and shine of your hair, you can apply a hair mask made with grapeseed oil to your hair overnight or before showering. Allowing the oil to seep into your hair can defend against breakage and enhance hair’s healthy appearance.
3. Non-Irritating and High In Protective Antioxidants
If you have acne-prone skin and easily break out around your hairline due to clogged pores and irritation from hair products, grapeseed oil may be a good option to try instead.
Grapeseed oil can also prevent scalp irritation/inflammation thanks to its many protective constituents, including tocopherol, linolenic acid, resveratrol, quercetin, procyanidins and phytosterols. Vitamin E also contributes to the beneficial effects of grape seed oil for hair and skin, because of its high antioxidant activity.
4. May Help Support Hair Growth?
According to the Academic Association of Medicine, there’s evidence from several animal studies that it may be able to help stop thinning hair due to its hydrating plus anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities, which give it the ability to protect hair fibers.
For example, its high vitamin E content might help protect proteins that strengthen the hair and scalp, while also defending against UV damage, breakage and oxidative stress.
Grapeseed oil may work best to support hair growth when used with other essential and carrier oils that protect the scalp, such as rosemary oil and coconut oil.
When oils are “cold-pressed” or “expeller-pressed,” they require less use of chemical solvents and are more likely to have higher concentrations of beneficial compounds.
One type that is popular for both hair and skin is pure pompeian grapeseed oil, which is imported from France and considered high quality.
How do you use grapeseed oil as a hair conditioner, mask or serum? Here’s how to use grapeseed oil to detangle hair, add shine, fight frizz and more:
- To hydrate your scalp and hair — Before washing your hair massage a small palm full of oil into hair, twist your hair into a bun and pop on a shower cap, let it soak in, and then wash it off after about 20 minutes using a gentle shampoo. Condition and style as usual. You can also use this oil as a carrier oil to combine with various essential oils that support hair health, such as lavender oil and rosemary oil.
- To help de-frizz your hair — Can you leave grapeseed oil in your hair? Yes, just like you would with other haircare products. Whether your hair has been chemically straightened, or you wear your hair naturally, you can rub several drops of the oil in your hands then apply to your hair evenly, starting at the ends and working up to the roots. When used as a leave in treatment, brushing the oil through your hair help to distribute it and add shine.
- To make a homemade hair mask for shine — Mix 1/4 cup of pure grapeseed oil with 1/2 smashed avocado or 3 egg yolks, then combine and saturate your hair. Leave the mixture in your hair for one hour, then wash it out then use your favorite conditioner
