Sometimes you have to look no further than your own kitchen to find truly effective (and natural) beauty treatments. For centuries, women in different cultures throughout the world (like Greece and Italy) have relied on natural oils (such as olive oil, jojoba oil, and grapeseed oil) to help them achieve bouncy, shiny, healthy hair and healthy, glowing skin.
You’ve probably heard about the health benefits of eating grapes (since they’re high in antioxidants), but did you know that applying grapeseed oil to your hair will help encourage hair growth, minimize frizz and damage, and replenish moisture in your hair, leaving it soft, supple, and gorgeous?! It’s true!
“A study published in the November 1998 Archives of Dermatology on aromatherapy and hair loss used grapeseed oil as carrier oil for other essential oils used to treat hair loss. Grapeseed oil provided moisturizing benefits and diluted the stronger oils for use on the scalp.” [Source: Livestrong.com]
Grapeseed oil is a fantastic deep conditioning treatment for your hair. You can either warm it up in the microwave (turning it into a hot oil treatment), or simply apply it to your dry hair. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, then wash your hair thoroughly. After just one treatment, you’ll instantly see results. When used on a weekly basis, you will soon notice how soft and manageable your hair is.
