Tattoos, Destressors, & Hair….Oh My!
What do you think of when you hear “henna?” For many, the first image that may come to mind is the beautifully ornate designs of henna tattoos. Some people may even think of hair color. But did you know that henna is beneficial to hair growth?
Now, how about ashwagandha? Do we hear crickets? No worries. Because this week we will be highlighting the amazing benefits of henna and ashwagandha for hair.
What to know about henna and ashwagandha:
1. African Roots: Both plants have origins in Africa. Ashwagandha can also be found in India and the Middle East.
2. External & Internal Benefits: While both ingredients can be used topically to help improve hair growth and reduce hair loss, ashwagandha has the added benefit of reducing inflammation and reducing stress when ingested. Stress and inflammation are often contributing factors to hair loss.
3. Promote Scalp Health: Ashwagandha stimulates DHEA in the body, an ultimate antioxidant that fights free radicals attacking the scalp and hair follicles. Henna has antifungal and antimicrobial properties that help with scalp health by removing impurities from the scalp and preventing issues such as dandruff. Henna also helps to restore pH levels of the scalp and unclog pores.
4. Strengthen Hair: Both ingredients provide nutrients to the hair follicle that strengthens the shaft and helps to prevent breakage.
Scalp health is an essential part of a healthy hair journey. While we often remember to “grease” our scalps, many overlook the importance of the ingredients we use for the greasing.
