How does using this rosemary overnight hair mask help your hair?
This hair mask contains three super powerful ingredients for the hair. Each of these ingredients has several benefits to the hair. Check out the benefits below:
Benefits of fresh aloe vera gel:
Aloe vera is rich in vitamins and can contribute to cell turnover and promote healthy cell growth in turn promoting hair growth. It can help reduce hair breakage and stimulate the hair follicles to promote hair growth. Aloe vera can penetrate into the hair follicles and can condition and improve dry and damaged hair.
Aloe vera can calm and ease itchiness on the scalp, especially for people with dandruff. It can reduce the itchiness and flaking of the skin under your hair, as it has anti-inflammatory properties and can also reduce scalp inflammation caused by dandruff.
Benefits of black seed oil:
Black seed oil can help regulate any imbalances in the hair growth cycle and activate the hair follicles to promote proper hair growth. It helps to nourish the hair and can promote hair shine. This oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties which can keep bacteria away from the scalp and can promote better scalp health.
Black seed oil is rich in nutrients which can help provide nourishment to the hair follicles in turn restoring hair growth. Black seed oil also has linoleic acid which can help prevent premature greying of hair. It also helps keep the hair sufficiently moisturized without making it look too greasy.
Benefits of rosemary essential oil:
Rosemary helps promote hair growth by healing the damaged hair follicles (by helping heal damaged nerve endings and tissues) as it contains ‘carnosic acid’. This property of rosemary essential oil can heal nerve endings and could possibly stimulate rejuvenation of hair follicles, in turn restoring hair growth.
Scalp infections also can be a reason for hair loss. Seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, folliculitis and even dandruff, can all be a cause for hair fall. Therefore, the properties of anti-inflammation in rosemary essential oil can help prevent and treat scalp conditions and reduce hair fall.
Proper blood circulation is of utmost importance because when the blood flows to the scalp it can stimulate hair follicle growth. Rosemary essential oil also helps promote better blood circulation in the scalp, in turn stimulating hair growth.
