Benefits Of Using Flaxseeds And Castor Oil Hair Mask

Both flaxseeds and castor oil are believed to be extremely healthy ingredients for your hair.

  • Flaxseeds are a good source of vitamins that are beneficial for your hair. These tiny seeds have vitamin E which fights free radicals on the scalp and promotes hair growth. 
  • The B Vitamins present in flaxseeds help in strengthening hair follicles and contribute to hair growth. 
  • The nutrients present in flaxseeds help in making your hair shiny. 
  • Dandruff is a common hair issue we all face these days. Dandruff leads to an itchy scalp and irritation which are common reasons behind hair fall. Flaxseeds have omega 3 fatty acids present in them which reduce dandruff and give your hair follicles a healthy environment to grow.
  • Flaxseeds have an antioxidant called lignin present in them which prevents hair loss and hair thinning. 

Castor Oil

  • Castor oil is believed to have magical properties for the hair. A lot of studies suggest that castor oil is beneficial for the hair in many ways. 
  • Castor oil is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, proteins, and fatty acids which help nourish the scalp and lead to hair growth. 
  • Applying this hair mask will help in increasing circulation to the scalp and boost hair growth. 
  • If you have dry and rough hair, you should use this hair mask because it helps lock the moisture in your tresses. 

Make sure your hair is clean when you apply this hair mask to get the maximum results of it. As shared earlier, you might not see the results instantly. However, if you feel the hair mask isn't working for you after 2-3 trials or you are suffering from a hair issue because of it, stop using it right away. 

Keep a check on your diet and regular hair care routine to make your hair grow thicker and longer quickly.
