Black seed oil - panacea from centuries ago
There are so many simple natural remedies with a long history of use that have been largely forgotten in modern times. However, due to their beneficial effects, cosmetic companies have begun to remind them about them. One of these age-old remedies that has gained recent popularity is Black Seed Oil (Nigella sativa). Many health experts claim that it is, indeed, a true panacea; able to help treat everything from allergies to hypertension.
Of course, we are most interested in the cosmetic benefits of black cumin and its effect on beauty and hair.
This oil is pressed or distilled from the seeds, leaving it with a very dense supply of nutrients, including linoleic acid, myristic acid, oleic acid, and palmitic acid, along with various other antioxidants and nutrients, such as B vitamins, iron, phosphorous, zinc, and copper. This oil has been in use for as many as 4,000 years, and remains a powerful and popular natural remedy, particularly for the hair.
One of the most unique black seed oil benefits is its uncanny ability to help restore hair loss. No one quite understands why it happens, but it’s not too hard to guess that it has something to do with its powerful antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. By strengthening hair follicles, there is very good reason to see how black seed oil can help promote strengthened hair roots. Black seed oil may help in regrowing certain thinning areas on your scalp.
Nigella sativa oil has much more, for instance:
- powerful antimicrobial properties help prevent scalp infections
- antifungal qualities make it an ideal scalp serum for seborrheic dermatitis/eczema, the condition that usually causes dandruff
- antioxidant properties can help protect the scalp from the normal aging process that thins the hair
- contains thymoquinone, an anti-inflammatory. Therefore it can be used to combat different alopecias; can help halt the permanent hair loss of scarring alopecias
The specific composition of the oil makes it ideal for moisturizing and delivering nutrients to the areas of your scalp that need it most. While there are other topical and medicinal properties of this oil, it is perhaps best known as a hair oil.
