Hair and Health Benefits Of Almond Oil | 04th August, 2017

Long And Healthy Hair
Regular use of almond oil on the hair improves its sheen and texture.
A rich source of magnesium, almond oil prevents hair fall to a great extent. No wonder it is used in a wide range of hair care products!
What You Need To Do
Apply almond oil once or twice a week to moisturize your scalp. After you massage your scalp, soak a towel in hot water and wrap it around your head. This will reduce hair fall and improve hair quality.
Gets Rid Of Split Ends
Unhealthy hair is never a good sign. But the dirt and pollution, along with our busy schedules, make it worse. Regular massage of hair with this oil can prevent split ends too.
Mix almond, castor, and olive oils in equal proportions and massage your hair with this mixture. Apply it once or twice a week, and feel the difference.
We all know that all these three oils incredibly benefit the hair as they are loaded with essential nutrients that promote hair growth and strengthen hair. Almond oil specifically has antioxidants, vitamins, and essential minerals that restore and rejuvenate the hair follicles.
Treats Dandruff
Almond oil effectively cures dandruff by removing dead cells. It also nourishes the hair and keeps hair troubles at bay. We have already established the fact that almond oil is a great emollient that cleanses the skin and removes dead cells. This quality also helps almond oil fight dandruff and keep the scalp clean.
A mixture of powdered amla and almond oil applied generously on the hair and left for about 30 minutes, followed by a hair wash, is sure to soothe the scalp and ensure dandruff-free hair.
Reduces Scalp Inflammations
Our scalp is frequently exposed to dust, heat, pollution, and chemical styling products. All of this can lead to inflammation. If ignored, this inflammation can cause an acute case of hair fall and dandruff.
Need a solution? Go for an almond oil massage and see the results for yourself.
Its high content of fatty acids moisturizes and softens the scalp tissues and also improves blood circulation. This also soothes inflammation.
Other health benefits include;

Boosts Memory And Strengthens Nervous System
They say if you eat five almonds a day, your memory improves. Almond oil is even better!
It is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and also contains a good measure of potassium. Almond oil is known to nourish the nervous system.
Add a few drops of the oil to a glass of milk and drink this every night before you go to sleep.
Relieves Pain And Muscles Stress
Any massage is therapeutic, and one with almond oil can relieve muscular aches and pains.
Almond oil has analgesic properties that help in easing the pain and stress from strained muscles. A few tablespoons of heated almond oil, when massaged into the affected area, almost instantly relieves joint or muscular pains.
Promotes Healthy And Strong Nails
Long nails look beautiful only if they appear healthy and not brittle. If you tend to bite the edges of your nails, it is time to strengthen them with almond oil.
For healthy and strong nails, massage them with a few drops of almond oil daily. The potassium and zinc present in the almond oil strengthen your nails and hydrate them, making them less prone to breaking.
Rich Source Of Vitamins And Minerals
There is a reason almond oil has hit kitchen shelves across the globe.
Almond oil is high in flavor and a rich source of essential vitamins and minerals. Calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamins E and D are found in great quantities in sweet almond oil, making it integral to healthy living.
Excellent For Pregnant Women
Pregnancy is a period where everybody tries to give you unsolicited advice. And if you have been at the receiving end, you must have surely heard about why almonds are good for you, right?
Many gynecologists recommend regular consumption of almond oil to expecting mothers. Almond oil is rich in folic acid, which reduces the chances of birth defects in newborns. It also ensures that your baby goes through healthy cell growth and tissue formation process. Almond oil also ensures your newborn will not suffer from neural tube defect.
