One of the herbaceous plants of the Padaliev family gives women beauty not for the first hundred years. Of course, we are talking about sesame, and oil, which is made from its seeds with the help of cold pressing.
This substance has a light golden color and is fairly fluid in its structure, therefore it is much more convenient to use it for hair than castor oil, which is also useful for curls.
If the oil has minimal processing, then the aroma of sesame seeds is preserved, and if it has been exposed to thermal effects, it is rather difficult to distinguish it from other oils. Therefore, the use of natural sesame oil in cosmetology is a priority: it is easier to distinguish a fake, and, moreover, its useful properties are better preserved.
Benefits of sesame oil for hair
Sesame cosmetic oil retains its healing properties for a very long time - up to eight years, while the seeds themselves deteriorate quite quickly.
Talking about the benefits of this oil can only be after evaluating the composition, which is rich in polyunsaturated
- fatty acids and microelements:
- stearic acid - 6%;
- palmitic - 8%;
- oleic - 48%;
- linoleic - 48%;
- myristic - 0.1%;
- hexadecene - 0.5%;
- arachine - 1%.
Also, sesame oil is known for protecting the skin and hair from the harmful effects of UV rays, and therefore it is especially important to use it in the spring and summer during solar activity. This, absolutely natural product, is much more useful than any chemical protective means, which, to their main drawback - synthetic origin, have one more, powerful enough - the ability to cause allergies. Sesame oil does not cause an allergic reaction, except for single cases of individual intolerance.
Sesame oil, thanks to its composition, nourishes, strengthens and moisturizes the hair: with systematic application it can prevent hair loss and cross-section.
Especially it is useful for those who subject the hair to perm and coloring, but the negative of the oily structure is that it quickly flushes the paint.
Especially it concerns the hair painted in blond: it is not excluded, that hair after a mask with any butter or oil (and including, sesame) will change a shade to yellow.
Using sesame oil
Sesame oil is added to cosmetics by various companies that produce professional hair products. Today many people are striving to create a product with natural ingredients, however, it is very difficult to achieve this, and often an inscription indicating the content of herbs or oils in a cosmetic product is just a marketing move: if these ingredients are present, then in a very small quantity.
It is safer and more correct to buy this oil in its pure form and make a mask based on it or use it without diluting it.
Sesame oil for greasy hair type
As part of sesame oil, there is magnesium, which copes wonderfully with the problem of fatty hair and dandruff. To balance the work of the sebaceous glands, you need to rub the oil in the roots of the hair in a day, leaving it for 30 minutes, and then wash it off with a neutral shampoo. The course of these procedures - 2 weeks, after which you need to make a break for a month, and then resume again.
For the same purpose, you can make a mask with egg white and butter: mix the ingredients in different proportions and apply to the roots of the hair for 1 hour.
