Bhringraj Oil: The Not-so-Secret Ingredient to Hair Growth

When it comes to healthy skin, haircare,, energy, and functionality, herbs have long been in use because of their medicinal and invigorating qualities. And rightfully so for hair care. From improving blood circulation to boosting hair growth and treating numerous hair-related issues, herb-infused hair oils are an integral part of hair care for centuries. 

One such not-so-secret, highly effective herb is the Bhringraj. Bhringraj, also known as False Daisy, has numerous health advantages for the human body as a whole and boosts hair health.

All You Need to Know About Bhringraj Oil - the Elixir of Hair Growth 

A sunflower family member, Bhringraj contains minerals including iron, vitamin E, magnesium, polypeptides, calcium, and vitamin D that promote hair growth and nourish the scalp.   

Understanding more about the benefits of Bhringraj oil would help to make an informed choice on effective and restorative hair care, which would be highly beneficial in the long run. 

1. It promotes hair growth 

Bhringraj oil is known for vasodilation - widening of blood vessels caused by relaxation of muscle cells layering the veins. Therefore, gently massaging your hair with Bhringraj oil would improve blood circulation to the roots, thus enabling hair growth and increasing volume and luster. 

2. It prevents dandruff and dry scalp 

Because of higher density and specific gravity than other hair oils, Bhringraj oil can treat dandruff and dryness by balancing sebum secretion and retaining essential moisture. It also controls the itchiness and flaking of the scalp caused by dandruff. 

3. It controls hair fall and treats baldness

Poor hygiene, changes in weather, humidity, stress, and medical conditions primarily affect hair growth and cause moderate to severe hair fall. However, regular massage with Bhringraj Oil soothes the scalp and helps reduce stress-induced hair fall.  

Research further elaborates that owing to its healing properties, comforting fragrance, and potent qualities, applying Bhringraj oil can also treat bacterial and fungal infections.  

Since Bhringraj oil stimulates the growth of new hair follicles, regular application and massage will treat baldness and enhance hair health. 

4.It prevents premature graying and improves luster 

Premature graying happens because of insufficient melanin - the pigment that gives hair its color. However, Bhringraj oil has anti-aging qualities that delay graying and improve luster. 

Eclipta alba or the Bhringraj is rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Iron, and Magnesium which are essential for a healthy mane. And thanks to these vital vitamins, Ayurveda recommends applying Bhringraj Oil not only to promote hair growth but also for other excellent benefits like muscle relaxation, sleep quality, and regulating body heat.   

5. It has soothing properties 

When it comes to skincare and haircare, hydration is crucial. A healthy and supple-looking skin or a voluminous mane is nothing if not hydrated. Bhringraj Oil has hydrating and anti-inflammatory qualities which can cure dry skin and treat hair-related infections.
