Ginger and hair growth

Ginger for hair growth


In the long term, hair care practices are just as important as those used in skin care. Ginger is not considered a common medical treatment for keeping hair healthy, but some claim anecdotally that this spice may improve hair growth.


Given the benefits ginger has to offer when it comes to healing diseases and health problems, it comes without surprise that it has long been used in both Indian Ayurveda and TICM. Ginger is one of the best ingredients you could use to promote hair growth.

 

 Ginger contains circulatory agents that stimulate the flow of blood on the scalp, increasing blood circulation, which triggers the hair follicles and encourages new growth. This way, it strengthens the hair from the root to the tip. Ginger has essential fatty acids, which prevent your hair from thinning.

 

 Fresh ginger root contains magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, and vitamins. These nutrients provide your hair follicles with nourishment, making them strong and preventing hair loss.

 

 If you are feeling itchy, scratchy, and flakey know that dandruff and hair loss often go hand-in-hand. This happens because the dead skin cells clog your follicles, leading to hair fall. Ginger has potent antifungal properties that help control dandruff and, in turn, curb hair loss.


To make a ginger hair mask, you may use ginger juice, essential oil, or extract combined with equal parts of a carrier oil, such as argan, coconut, or jojoba. Massage into the scalp and cover your hair evenly. Place a cap over your hair and leave on up to 30 minutes before rinsing out.

 

 If treating the scalp only, you may add something acidic to the mask, such as yogurt, lemon, or apple cider vinegar.

In addition, speak to your doctor about a herbal formula and wet cupping to encourage new Blood and vital energy to scalp.
