Here Is How Ginger Oil Can Help With Damaged Hair

Hair is very sensitive and easily damaged, especially by many of the modern styling treatments that are now commonplace - dying, perms, heat treatments, straightening, and even daily shampooing. Sun and humidity are damaging as well. Hair damage begins when the outer layers of the hair become damaged. Successful remedies for hair damage either repair the damaged outer layer (the cuticle) or seal and strengthen it to prevent hair damage from occurring in the first place.

Ginger and sesame combine to make a silky conditioning oil that protects and leaves hair smelling fresh. Ginger root is a natural anti-inflammatory and has been used for centuries to treat dandruff and Sesame oil is a natural sunscreen which has inherent protective qualities. Please note that unfiltered sesame oil may have a darkening affect on your hair but it contains the most nutrients.

Here is the best way to apply this remedy to reverse damaged hair:

Combine 1 teaspoon grated ginger with ¼ cup sesame oil
Mix thoroughly
Massage oil into scalp and leave on for 10 minutes
Shampoo
Repeat weekly as desired.

If you scale this up to make larger amounts, put the grated ginger into a piece of cheesecloth and squeeze the juice into the oil. The oil will keep longer if it does not contain pieces of ginger. Store in the refrigerator if you plan to keep it for more than a week. For external use only. If any rash or skin irritation results, discontinue use immediately.
