Growing hair is probably the most patience-testing task ever. It comes with a lot of other problems like oily scalp, split-ends, the awkward length phase, lots of hair loss, and the constant urge to chop it all off. And while chopping it off may seem like the easiest thing when you are facing these troublesome situations, there are some ways you can ease and speed up the hair growth process.
It is not surprising at all that ginger has long been used in Indian Ayurveda, because of its benefits in healing diseases and health problems.
However, it is one of the best ingredients you could use to promote hair growth as well. Whether it is to achieve Rapunzel’s length or simply control a nasty phase of hair loss, this natural ingredient can do wonders to your hair.
Read on to know how:
Ginger has various nutrients like magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, and vitamins that nourish your hair follicles, making them stronger and preventing hair fall/ hair loss.
Dandruff and hair loss go hand-in-hand in many people. This happens because the dead skin cells and flakes of dandruff tend to clog your hair follicles, leading to breakage. Ginger has potent antimicrobial properties that help control dandruff and, in turn, curbs hair loss.
So many of us face the problem of dry hair ends. Dryness causes hair to become brittle, and this in turn leads to more breakage. Ginger works as a natural conditioner, reducing dryness by restoring moisture to your hair.
Ginger’s active ingredient, Gingerol, helps in calming and relaxing the blood vessels; thereby improving the circulation of blood throughout the scalp. This provides improved and better nourishment to the hair follicles, ensuring rapid and stronger hair growth.
Ginger also contains chains of fatty acids such as Linoleic acid. These fatty acids provide nourishment to your hair, keeping it healthy and strong from the roots, preventing breakage.
