Statistics tell us that many of us have or will experience excessive hair loss (more than 100 strands/day) at some point in our lives. Hair loss can be brought on by illness, stress, diet, pregnancy, medication or even genetic reasons. For some of us these issues fix themselves over time, but for many people they don’t. This is why it’s so critical to address issues of hair loss and thinning immediately after we notice it. However the one ingredient that has been used for centuries to combat hair loss and other health issues is black seed oil. Black seed oil has been proven as a remedy for hair loss. This ingredient helps grow thicker hair, stops hair loss and helps keep good health, overall.
Black seed oil (also known as black cumin oil or nigella sativa) is full of potent properties that have amazing benefits for your hair and scalp (whether you have hair or not). The black cumin plant is native to southwestern Asia, the Mediterranean, and Africa.
The seed’s oil actually acts as a natural moisturizer that rids your hair and scalp of dryness. The antioxidant, anti-fungal, moisturizing and nourishing properties of black cumin will protect your skin, hair, and scalp all year round. Not to mention, it’s also great for reducing acne!
Medicinal Properties of Black Seed Oil For Body and Hair:
- pharmacologic (for medicinal uses)
- antimicrobial (for example, antibiotics are used against bacteria and antifungals are used against fungi)
- analgesic (provides relief for pain and itching)
- antioxidant (ward of signs of aging, removing waste products in our cells)
What Makes Black Seed Oil Special:
Black Seed is composed of nigellone and other antihistamine properties which have been found to regrow hair. This is one of the key components that can make your hair thicker and longer. The seeds contain thymoquinone, a powerful antihistamine that has been prescribed to alopecia patients to help with regrowth and thinning hair. The anti-inflammatory components in black seed decrease the swelling on the scalp that hinders hair growth. Nigella Sativa is said to help move dormant hair follicles. Those suffering from Telogen Effluvium6 (TE) alopecia can use this ingredient to stop hair shedding and preserve the hair follicles in the active phase.
In addition to putting it on your hair, taking black cumin oil by the teaspoonful daily can have powerful effects on your overall health and will benefit your hair while it’s at it. Mix it with water or honey, or if you’re really brave, drink it straight.
