Hair loss is often just a part of getting older. But new studies are constantly being done to help with the search of a wonder oil which could halt this process and aid hair growth. According to research, cedarwood oil may be the answer.
Cedarwood essential oil has been scientifically proven to help promote hair growth when combined with a few other natural oils.
A Scottish study at the Department of Dermatology looked into the effects of oils on people with alopecia or thinning hair.
The double-blind study showed an improvement in hair growth by a staggering 44 percent.
The changes were quite noticeable as the patient’s hair was restored in both length and thickness.
“Essential oils are extracted from plants through methods like distillation or evaporation,” said Healthline.
“While essential oils are most famous for their aromatic capabilities, they also contain strong chemical properties that can be beneficial for health.
“Thyme can help promote hair growth by both stimulating the scalp and actively preventing hair loss.
“Like cedarwood oil, thyme oil was also found to be helpful in treating alopecia areata.”
