Ginger is one of Earth’s most marvellous gifts. Its talents are seemingly endless. Would you be surprised to know that you can halt hair loss with ginger? Yes, indeed. Amongst its therapeutic health and beauty benefits, this root’s essential oils, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids make it an ideal elixir for treating your own roots.
What about ginger can halt hair loss?
The benefits of this radical root are renowned and have been appreciated since ancient times – even outside of its native China. Rich in nutritious compounds, it’s perfectly suited for addressing the following complaints:
- Rheumatic and menstrual pain
- Flu and colds
- Cardiovascular issues
- Depression and low mood
- Stress and anxiety
- Digestive woes.
In terms of its power to halt hair loss and stimulate the follicles, this is how ginger works:
- By stimulating blood flow to the scalp, ginger promotes circulation and stimulates the hair follicles which, in turn, encourages growth. Fatty acids in this root are excellent for strengthening thin hair and restoring it to health.
- Did you realise that dandruff can also cause hair loss? If you suffer from it, you may have spent vast amounts of money on products that promised to rid you of this blight. Sadly, these chemical cocktails lead primarily to polluted waters and empty wallets. They’re largely ineffective at solving the causes of dandruff and they may even aggravate allergies. Gentle ginger, however, is an excellent remedy for decimating dandruff for good. Its loaded with natural antiseptic properties that soothe irritation of the scalp and smooth the hair follicle, making your barnet lustrous and resistant to damage or flaking.
