4 Benefits of Mahabhringraj Oil 

Did you know a quick head massage with Mahabhringraj oil can give you deep and sound sleep? The oil cools off the burning sensation in the eyes, palms, and soles. 

In Ayurveda medicine, it has been a vital part for centuries. Here are a few must-know benefits of the oil. 

1. Controls hair fall

You may suffer from hair fall for various reasons – lack of nutrients, stress, health issues, etc. Regardless, Mahabhringraj oil can be your miracle remedy to the problem. 

Regular massage with Mahabhringraj oil can help you relax, preventing hair fall due to increased stress levels. Furthermore, the oil treatment can provide your hair with the necessary nutrients, thereby controlling hair fall.  

2. Boosts hair growth

When you massage Mahabhringraj oil into your hair, it dilates the blood vessels. As a result, it improves blood flow to your hair and roots. This process is called vasodilation. It results in increased hair growth, and the process promotes healthy hair. 

3. Prevents dry scalp and dandruff

With its anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, Mahabhringraj oil can reduce dandruff and itchiness. It can also help to seal the moisture in your scalp, preventing dryness and eliminating indications of scalp infections. 

4. Nourishes hair

Lack of a proper hair-care routine, humidity, and nutrient imbalances can make your hair look dry and dull. However, a good massage with Mahabhringraj oil can nourish your hair well. The oil deeply penetrates through your hair follicles providing the necessary minerals and nutrients to bring back the moisture and shine.
