Bountiful Benefits Of Rosehip Oil For Hair!

Rosehip oil has an alluring red, amber-coloured hue with an earthy, woody scent. It is praised for its bountiful benefits as much as its beautiful colour. Rosehip oil aka Rosehip Seed Oil is obtained from wild rose plants such as ‘Rosa Canina’.

Pressed from the red bulbous fruit that grows beneath the petals of rose plants, it can be used for direct skin and hair application. Rosehip oil for hair is immensely beneficial due to its hair-loving constituents such as vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants.


Key Rosehip Oil Benefits For Hair

Rosehip oil benefits your scalp immensely as it is a powerhouse of essential fatty acids along with polyphenols, vitamin C, E, B and carotenoids. It is widely used as a natural moisturiser and can be used to moisturise the scalp as well as hair.

If you have dry scalp and fine hair or oily scalp and dry hair you can still use rosehip oil for your hair. The constituent vitamins and fatty acids in rosehip oil fortify moisture to the scalp and hair. The oil when used on hair can deeply nourish the hair shaft and brittle tresses.

 


Other Benefits Of Rosehip Oil Benefits For Hair

  • Moisturises Hair

The essential fatty acids in rosehip oil moisturise the hair shaft and scalp. Regular use of rosehip oil can encourage healthy growth and resilience of hair.

A well-balanced scalp and moisturised hair may pave the way to a healthier mane. This can be especially beneficial in the case of a dry scalp that is prone to itching and barrier damage.

  • Repairs Hair Damage

With excess or wrong use of hair care products, the moisture barrier of the scalp or hair might be compromised. Hair breakage and scalp itchiness may be the symptoms of the same.

The scalp skin has less sensitive sensory nerves, resulting in a worsening of scalp conditions. The oleic and linoleic acids found in rosehip oil can help moisturise and support barrier strengthening.

  • Vitamin Boost

Vitamins found in rosehip oil can reinforce the topical supply and stimulate the natural processes of the hair and follicle. However, this doesn’t mean you can replace a vitamin-rich diet with a topical application.

  • Anti-Inflammatory Property

Rich in both polyphenols and anthocyanin, it may help reduce inflammation. It also contains vitamin E, an antioxidant known for its anti-inflammatory effects.

  • Antioxidant Properties

Hair and scalp both are susceptible to oxidative stress and the antioxidant-packed rosehip oil can protect the hair by fighting off free radicals.


Different Ways To Use Rosehip Oil For Hair

To reap all rosehip oil benefits,  use it without dilution as a facial oil. While one may use rosehip oil to carry essential oils, it also works well as a standalone oil for hair. Using cold-pressed and organic rosehip oil is highly recommended for retaining all the vitamins and goodness the fruit provides.

  • As A Gentle Scalp Massage
  • Take a few drops of rosehip oil, warm it between your fingers and then gently press or massage it onto your scalp. Wash it thoroughly well with an organic shampoo the next day.

  • As A Leave-in Conditioner
  • If you have frizzy hair ends, you can warm a few drops between your hands, and smooth them over the damp hair lengths and ends.

  • With Essential Oils
  • Rosehip oil when paired with essential oils can boost hair growth. Both peppermint essential oil and rosemary essential oil has been proven to boost hair growth. Always use diluted essential oil on the scalp and never directly. The essential oil has to be used at 1% dilution, that is if you take 1ml of essential oil then use 99ml of carrier oil for dilution.

    1. Take 2 teaspoons of cold-pressed rosehip oil.
    2. Add a drop of each rosemary essential oil and peppermint essential oil.
    3. Give it a quick stir and apply gently to your scalp.
    4. Leave for a minimum of 1 hour before washing off.
  • As  A Conditioner Boost
  • You can also add rosehip oil to your regular conditioner to moisturise and nourish the hair. Add a few drops of rosehip oil to your wash-off conditioner. Leave this mixture on your hair for 5 minutes and rinse it away.
