The benefits of cinnamon for hair.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, cinnamon is a warming plant that promotes blood circulation. This increased blood flow can benefit hair growth because it brings oxygen and nutrients to the follicles. Additionally, cinnamon is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect the scalp from free radical damage. In a recent study, participants who applied cinnamon-based hair oil to their scalp saw an increase in hair growth.
Prevention of split ends:
Cinnamon has long been used as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments. From soothing indigestion to relieving arthritis pain, this humble spice has a wide range of benefits. But did you know that cinnamon can also help prevent split ends in hair? Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties. Applied to the scalp, it can help soothe irritation and reduce the risk of fungal infections. Its ability to stimulate blood circulation helps nourish hair follicles and increases hair growth. Therefore, incorporating cinnamon into your hair care routine can help preserve your hair’s shine and prevent split ends from forming.
Reduction of dandruff:
Applied topically, cinnamon can help reduce dandruff by reducing inflammation. Thanks to its antibacterial properties, its use restores your hair’s natural shine and protects your scalp from any infection.
