Black Currant Seed Oil, Something Great For The Hair




  1. Black Currant Seed Oil

    • This oil contains omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids, which
      help provide moisture for your hair and encourage hair growth and
      strength. Specifically, the gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) in black currant
       seed oil is an omega-6 acid that can help prevent hair thinning, splitting
       and dryness, according to Dr. Andrew Weil.
      Moisture is key for healthy hair because if your hair is dry and fragile,
       it will be more likely to break. Of course your hair will keep growing,
      but it will seem like it is not because it breaks before you see any real
       progress.
      Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are also beneficial in improving the
      condition of skin and nails.

    Recommended Dosage

    • Weil recommends starting with 500 mg capsules one to three times per
      day. The capsules are also available in higher dosages, but start with the
      lower dosage and gauge your reaction to the supplement. It is important
       to take GLA as a capsule (rather than trying to get an adequate amount
       solely through diet) because it can be challenging to get enough of the
      fatty acid to improve hair health. A supplement makes it much easier
       to get the recommended dosage.
