Everyday Seasonings to Boost Hair Health
by April Maguire
According to recent statistics, 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States suffer some degree of hair loss, along with the accompanying negative impact to self-esteem. While some hair loss results from underlying health conditions, many cases can be mitigated with changes to diet and lifestyle. According to new research, the spice known as turmeric can have a positive effect on both hair growth and overall wellness.
A New Use for an Ancient Spice
A native of Southeast India, turmeric is a deep-yellow spice commonly used in curries and mustards. However, the ingredient also has a number of health and medical benefits. While Indian medical practitioners have been prescribing the spice for thousands of years to treat stomach and liver issues, turmeric has recently gained popularity as an effective treatment for depression, fibromyalgia, allergies and even Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, turmeric offers a number of benefits for your scalp and hair. From treating dandruff to spurring new hair growth, here are a few ways in which this ginger-relative can help revitalize your mane:
Suffering from rampant dandruff of the scalp? If flaky skin is ruining your day, the solution may be to apply a mix of olive oil and turmeric before your next bath. Not only does this super spice remove dandruff signs, but it also nourishes hair follicles while enhancing circulation of the head and scalp.
Treat Scalp Conditions
Of course, dandruff isn’t the only scalp conditions facing Americans today. From dermatitis to eczema and even cicatricial alopecia, various conditions can cause the skin on the head to become inflamed and even injure the hair follicles beneath. Fortunately, turmeric contains a substance known as curcumin that is known to fight funguses and other ailments affecting the skin.
Prevent Hair Loss and Encourage New Growth
While hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons, experts believe that a substance known as TGF beta one is often responsible for hair follicle death in many cases. By mixing curcumin-rich turmeric with a blend of milk and honey, you can strike back against itching and flaking while encouraging the growth of thick, healthy hair.
Widely regarded as a holy plant in India, turmeric is becoming increasingly popular in the US due to its many uses in the health and wellness industry. Ask your doctor if this wonder spice might be the solution to your hair loss woes.
