Best Oil Supplements for Hair Growth (contd)
Flaxseed oil is a derivative of the Flax plant seeds. They can be found in western Canada. It’s partly oil with the rest composed of fiber, protein, and mucilage.
It’s a rich source of essential fatty acids, lignans, vitamins, and minerals. Some of the benefits of flaxseed oil supplements include relieving the problems associated with the excessive dryness of hair, brittle hair, and split ends.
The recommended dosage is one capsule in the morning and one in the evening. You can also buy the seeds, crush and eat them or add flaxseed oil to a glass of juice.
Omega 3 fish oil contains DHA, EPA & ALA. The first two are found in fish while the latter is derived from plants.
The fatty acids nourish your hair follicles for stronger and shinier hair.
Regular intake will lead to a marked difference in overall hair health within a few weeks. This is a treatment from the inside out and the capsules shouldn’t be opened and applied directly to the hair.
It won’t do much and probably smells ghastly. You can, however, eat fatty fish such as anchovy, herring, mackerel, tuna, salmon, sardines, trout, etc.
Pumpkin seed oil contains considerable levels of omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, vitamin E and K, and beneficial compounds like phytosterols and delta-7-sterine.
The 4 major fatty acids in pumpkin seed are linoleic acid (omega-6), oleic acid (omega-9), palmitic, and stearic acid (saturated).
The supplement regulates metabolism, growth, and development and maintains healthy hair and skin among other benefits.
It is also indicated pumpkin seed oil blocks the hormone known as DHT or dihydrotestosterone which is responsible for baldness.
The suggested dosage is 1,000 mg twice a day. You can also take in a teaspoon of raw pumpkin seed oil.
You can grab these supplements with free shipping when you sign up, risk-free, for Amazon Prime. Try Amazon Prime HERE.
Remember, when taking any supplements, don’t overdo them and stick with the recommended dosage.
Taking extra dosages will not make it work faster. Also, check with your doctor before overlapping supplements.
