What are the benefits of moringa for hair?
Moringa leaves are anti-bacterial and anti-fungal helping in prevention of dandruff, itchy scalp, psoriasis , eczema and bacterial blisters.
Hair cell development
Moringa leaf is rich in amino acids which are building blocks of cells, therefore this helps in rejuvenation of hair thereby, reduces alopecia(hair loss in scalp). It activates the dormant hair follicles thereby enhancing hair growth on the bald areas.
It is a rich source of Biotin. Biotin enhances creation of RBCs thereby increasing the oxygen supply to the scalp. This prevents hair loss and increases the longevity of the hair cells.
Enhancing hair thickness
Moringa is a rich source of Omega-3 which acts a major role in hair development. When moringa is applied topically, Omega-3 present in it becomes an over-coating. This closes the pores in the cortex of the hair shaft thereby helping the nutrition in hair to be retained and enhances the moisture entrapment. Moringa leaves are rich in Vitamin C and promotes the production of collagen and enables it to remain elastic and moveable. If the scalp is dry and stiff, the hair might scrape or scratch off. Vitamin C encourages blood flow to the scalp and strengthens the hair.
Hair growth improvement
Moringa leaf has a rich quantity of zinc, Vitamin A, and iron which are very essential for hair growth. Zinc keeps the oil glands in the scalp healthy and nourished. This majorly maintains the scalp environment and makes the scalp apt for hair growth.
Moringa leaves are rich in vitamin E. A study found that this antioxidant could improve hair growth when taken orally .If your hair loss is due to vitamin E deficiency, you may take moringa supplements after consulting a doctor.
Moringa has a specific peptide which coats around the hair shaft. The seed has a high influence and a new innovation for hair care in prevention of premature greying of hair. Since moringa is rich in Vitamin C this acts as an anti- oxidant. Due to the presence of free radicals in Vitamin C there is delay in loss of melanin pigment which is important for the hair colour.
