All the ayurvedic hair oils are based on sesame and coconut oil. Both have unique benefits for the scalp and the hair.

Coconut Oil Benefits For The Hair

Besides being a key ingredient in Ayurvedic hair oils, Cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil is used for conditioning the hair and protecting it from the wearing effects of sun and salt water in all Polynesian cultures.

Its health benefits are also widely researched and published. Read an article how a technique called coconut oil pulling can help to promote general health:

Health Benefits Of Coconut Oil Pulling

Extra Virging Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal. It helps to restore balance to the scalp by compacting yeast, a fungal growth which causes dandruff. It is also a great natural remedy for getting rid of lice, folliculitis, an hair follicle infection and ringworm of the scalp.

Cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil is also rich in medium chain fatty acids, which nourish the scalp by penetrating the hair follicle, compacting frizz, helping to prevent hair breakage, hair loss and promoting hair growth.

E vitamin is an powerful antioxidant. It helps to build and repair tissue. Applying it to the scalp, helps to reduce inflammations and repair damaged repair and build tissue and hair follicles.

Sesame Oil Benefits For The Hair

Just like coconut oil, cold pressed sesame oil is widely used in the cosmetics industry. It is very beneficial for the hair and it compacts most of the same areas coconut oil does.

It is also antibacterial and contains high amounts of E vitamin. Additionally it also contains minerals such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus which nourish the scalp.

Sesame Oil

Sesame oil especially improves the scalps blood circulation promoting hair growth. It is highly penetrative in nature, helping to  heal damage caused by chemicals and colouring.

Sesame oil also forms a protective coat around the hair shaft, keeping it protected from the damaging effects of the chemical, pollution, UV rays and sea or chlorine water.

Sesame oil also acts as a coolant helping the hair to recover from the effects of blow drying and curling, as the harsh heat damages the hair follicles. It also locks the moisture within, preventing further drying. It’s cooling effect also compacts stress, which is a mayor factor in hair loss.

Improved Hair and Scalp Health

  • Helps the hair to keep on to its pigment longer, preventing premature greying
  • Gives the hair a luminous shine
  • Combats frizz
  • Helps to grow thicker and fuller hair

Hair Oil Usage

The hair oil is used for three different purposes, but the method remains the same. Small amount of oil is massaged well into the scalp and the ends. The oil is left to act a certain amount of time before washing.

Hair Mask

Hair mask is a deep conditioner applied to the scalp and the hair, that nourishes and repairs damaged hair. For best effects to be left into the hair over night.

Hair oil is best used together with heat as it activates all the properties and creates a hair mask. There are several ways of doing this.

Heating The Oil

Pour a small amount of the oil in a small class dish. Place the class dish in a shallow contained with hot water. Make sure water does not mix with the oil.

Heating The Body

If you do not want to heat the oil, you can also apply it cold and heat yourself instead! You can do this by using the oil in sauna or steam room.

I have personally found this very good way of using the oil. I apply the oil into the hair twice or three times a week about half an hour before going to sauna. I leave the oil for the night and wash my hair the following morning.

Protective Usage

Hair oil can also be used to protect the hair from the damaging sun, sea or chlorine water, chemicals and heat. Women in tropical environments apply hair oil into their hair every morning. It gives them the famous lush shiny and fragrant hair.

In this case apply the hair oil evenly into the whole hair in the morning before leaving the house. Wash the hair in the evening or the following morning.

Hair Styling

Hair oil is traditionally used in Indian hair styling, as it helps to keep the hair in it’s place and protect it while at the same time giving it a lush shine.

Hair Oil

What Is The Best Oil For Hair Growth

So what is the best Ayurvedic hair oil for promoting hair growth and preventing hair fall? The answer is, it depends on your hair type and it’s general condition.

Dry, frizzy hair, which has been damaged by excessive styling and coloring needs different kind of hair than oily or normal. Hence there are generally two different ayurvedic hair oils promoted for each of these types.

Javakusum Hair Oil For Normal and Dry Hair

Ayurvedic Javakusum hair oil is the best oil to promote healthy hair growth for dark, dry, damaged, frizzy and curly hair. It is widely used by women in India and Sri Lanka.

Besides containing both cold pressed extra virgin and cold pressed sesame oils, with its long benefits listed above, it also contains cold pressed castor oil.

Castor oil, just like coconut and sesame oils, is antibacterial and contains vitamin E. Additionally it contains Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Its unique composition helps to balances the scalp, prevents hair loss, promotes healthy growth.

Additional key ingredients include javakusum, hibiscus flower, Indian gooseberry, indigo and henna.

Javakusum Hair Oil

All these ingredients work together in harmony to darken the hair, preventing premature graying and giving it a healthy shine. Henna helps to condition the hair and the whole blend nourished frail hairs, thickening and proving the hair a healthy shine.

 

100ml bottle of hair oil is currently on offer for $19.20 $24.00

This product is also available as part of Ayurvedic anti-aging regime. You can read my review of this powerful set of products, tools and information here:

Best Anti-Aging Skin Care Products

Bhringraj Tail Hair Oil For Normal And Oily Hair

Ayurvedic Bhringraj Tail hair oil is best for thin, blonde and oily hair. It is also well suitable for the use on young children.

Just like the Javakusum oil, it bases itself on cold pressed extra virgin coconut and sesame oils.

It does however not contain any castor oil. Instead is contains the essential oil from Eclipta alba, a plant of a sunflower family, which encourages hair growth.

It also contains Eclipta alba and Nagarmotha plant extract, which are traditionally used for Ayurvedic hair loss remedies. Baheda plant extract in return strengthens thin hairs, making them less easily breakable.

Antioxidants and amino acids in the Indian herbs of brahmi, amla, Kachur, Sariva, Nagarmotha, Lodhra, Khareti, Manjishtha, Babchi, Mulethi, Chandan, Padmkashth, Priangu, Mandur, Jatamansi and Ashwagandha present in this hair oil are all beneficial for the hair.

100ml bottle of hair oil is currently on offer for $20.00 $25.00

My Loving Advice

Javakusum is my favourite hair oil as my auburn curly hair is prone for frizz and breaks easily. I also used it successfully to prevent hair loss during my second and third rounds of cancer treatments.

Additionally this hair smells gorgeous due to the use of hibiscus flower essential oil and it has an uplifting effect in my moods.

I have used Bhringraj Tail hair oil to stimulate hair growth by alternating it with Javakusum hair oil after my hair loss due to cancer. Alone it does not nourish my hair enough and neither does it control the frizz of my curls.

These hair oils helped to regrow my hair with the speed of 2.5cm/1inch per month after my first cancer treatments which caused me to loose my hair.

If you only use the hair oil as a hair mask 2-3 times a week, it will last you around 2 months. If you use it daily, it will last approximately 2-4 weeks depending on the length and volume of your hair.

I can highly recommend both hair oils and love the fact that they contain no chemicals or mineral oils, but only oils extracted from herbs and plants. They are both based on ancient Ayurvedic recipes and endured the test of time.
