Uses of sesame oil for skin and hair


Light yellow in color sesame oil is a great moisturizer for your skin and has a very sweet aroma. Albeit some people do not like its fragrance of it and find it pretty strong. Oil contains healing power and has high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids in it.

It is loaded with vitamin E and B complex and is extremely beneficial for health. It has minerals such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.

Regular massage of sesame oil is beneficial for those who are fond of dark hair .The oil helps in reducing flakiness and therefore is a wonderful remedy for those who have dry scalp. It helps in controlling hair loss and regular massage of the oil and enhances blood circulation as well.
Regular use of the oil promotes hair growth and gives strength to the hair. Problems like stress, split ends and rough hair can be cured easily by sesame oil. The oil even protects the hair from the harmful effect of sun rays and from pollution too.
I started using sesame oil when my hair got damaged from coloring. It brought back my hair color back .Now I massage my hair with this oil once in fifteen days because I dont want my hair too be too black in color.
If you find the smell of the hair too strong then you can mix it with olive or almond oil. This will lighten up its aroma and will be more effective too .To know about olive oil benefits click here.
