What Are the Benefits of Pumpkin Seed Oil for Hair?
- Pumpkin seed oil nourishes the scalp and hair follicles thus helping to optimise hair growth.
- As an emollient oil, pumpkin seed oil can eliminate frizz and promote shiny hair.
- Its high vitamin E content means softer hair.
- Pumpkin seed oil has high beta-carotene content. It strengthens new hair growth and alleviates thinning hair. Read more on this at Why Beta-Carotene is Essential for Resolving Hair Breakage Issues.
Can Pumpkin Seed Oil Regrow Hair?
Yes, pumpkin seed oil can help regrow hair. When I suffered from hair loss, pumpkin seed oil was one of the key oils in my hair regrowth regimen.
However, it should be used in combination with other hair growth oils and healthy hair care practices.
A lot of these hair growth oils with recipes and much more are covered in How to Grow Hair Healthy and Long With Natural Oils HERE.
How Do You Use Pumpkin Seed Oil for Hair Growth?
You can use it as a scalp massage oil combined with other hair growth oils like castor oil and burdock root oil.
You can also use it in a hair mask. I share some hair mask recipes at Protect Hair Follicles With Pumpkin Seed Oil.
