Natural ingredients are always better when it comes to a nourishing hair routine. Besides being a sign of purity, it also evolves your regime in a wholesome manner. A good example of a natural ingredient used in hair products is the ginseng. Ginseng is beneficial to your scalp health and hair growth as it improves blood circulation while boosting the immune system and fighting hair loss. The improved blood flow to the scalp also results in reduced stress level that benefits overall health.
Ginseng is classed as any one of the eleven different species of slow-growing perennial plants with fleshy roots, found in North America and eastern Asia. Although the fleshy root has witnessed a recent rise in popularity, it has been used by the Chinese for centuries as an important part of Chinese traditional medicine as they realised the amazing health benefits that ginseng can bring to the body, mind and spirit.
Ranging from acting as an energy stimulant to treatment for cold and flu, ginseng’s powerful properties are a force to be reckoned with and can help with a number of ailments, including hair problems. Research has shown that ginseng could be beneficial for the growth of hair follicles. It is often used in many shampoos and conditioners as is known to stimulate the scalp and encourage hair growth.
Ginseng can help to prevent the death of cells, which leads to an increased number of dermal papilla cells in the scalp, strengthening and nurturing your hair follicles simultaneously. The ginsenoside found in ginseng fortifies your hair roots and prevents any viral or fungal infections on the scalp. The natural spice found in Ginseng also cleanses your scalp by eliminating dryness and dandruff. Its powerful properties also work to relieve stress, which can be a common cause of hair fall.
We share with you more about the benefits that ginseng has for the hair and scalp.
1. Prevents hair loss
Hair loss problem is very common. Ginseng is believed to increase the dermal cells on the scalp which, in turn, strengthens the follicles and roots of the hair. Moreover, the ginsenoside in ginseng helps to nourish the roots. These not only encourage new hair growth but also prevents hair thinning and breakage.
2. Stops dandruff in its tracks
Dandruff is a “nightmare” and If it is those unsightly white flakes that are getting you down, ginseng might just be the answer to your hair problem. Ginseng is high in Saponin, an anti-bacterial compound, which will sweep away dandruff from the scalp and prevent it from reoccurring. This ensures that your follicles stay clean and flake-free.
3. Prevents grey hair
Ginseng contains volatile oil and other substances which are very useful to prevent erosion of naturally beautiful hair colour or grey hair. These serve as an antidote to free radicals that we have to face in this urban city, which in turn causes grey hair. With the help of ginseng, grey hair can be prevented as early as possible.
4. Restores nourishment from within
Thanks to its nourishing capabilities, ginseng is a herbal plant that helps both, the roots and lengths of the hair. It cleanses the scalp of build-up and restores cuticles from the brink of damage to get manageable, nourished tresses.
5. Improves scalp condition
Ginseng is said to be able to help stimulate circulation in the scalp, and as a result, increases the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the hairfollicles there. It is also supposed to help remove build-up and unclog the follicles, allowing hairstrands to plump up and grow in more thickly. A good news for those with thinning hairor irritated scalps: you may benefit from using a shampoo that contains ginseng.
