Have you ever used vitamin E for hair growth? Or have you ever listened to its magical uses yet? Let’s read on with us to know about the detailed benefits of Vitamin E and discover a new world of easy DIY at home for your skin and hair.
Below are the hot benefits of Vitamin E for your hair.
Prevent hair loss:
Vitamin E supplements improved hair growth in people with hair loss. It’s thought that the vitamin’s antioxidant properties helped reduce oxidative stress in the scalp. Oxidative stress has been linked with hair loss.
Balance oil production:
Vitamin E is important for creating a protective barrier on the skin’s surface. This barrier helps lock in moisture. Dry, irritated skin can be a sign of vitamin E deficiency.
Although it’s unclear whether topical vitamin E can balance out scalp oil production, oils that contain vitamin E — like avocado oil— may help moisturize the scalp. They may also help prevent excess oil production.
Add shine to dull look:
Hair can look dull and frizzy when it’s damaged. When the protective fat layer on the outside of the hair’s cuticle is removed, it loses its shine and becomes difficult to manage or style according to the Academy of Dermatology. Vitamin E rich oil can help replace that protective layer and bring back shine. Oil in general also helps seal out moisture, reduce breakage, and protect the hair from damage.
Support a healthy scalp:
Vitamin E is essential for healthy skin and this includes your scalp. Poor scalp health is linked to lackluster hair quality. Vitamin E supports the scalp and gives your hair a strong base to grow from by reducing oxidative stress and preserving the protective lipid layer.
How to use:
The good news is that vitamin E is easy to get through a balanced diet. In fact, a vitamin E deficiency is extremely rare, because most people get plenty throughout the day from whole and enriched foods.
But if you want to specifically target your hair, vitamin E can also be applied topically with a shampoo, conditioner, mask, or oil.
