Benefits of Grapeseed Oil
I have not experimented with Grapeseed oil as much as I have with other carrier oils.
I offer it as a base to my beard oils for the following reasons:
Helps to Grow Hair
Prevents Beard Frizz
Improves Skin Elasticity
Counteracts Greasy Hair
Grapeseed oil is ideal for moisturizing and conditioning dry hair because it is lighter than olive oil or coconut oil and won't leave your hair feeling greasy. It is also odorless, so it won't leave a lingering scent. Grape seed oil helps to lock in moisture and prevent frizz, split ends, and brittle hair. Try coating your hair in grape seed oil and leaving it in for ten minutes, then rinsing it out with cold water for an easy deep-conditioning treatment.
Grape seed oil outshines its counterparts in its power to resolve hair issues, like weakened hair, hair loss, dandruff, and waned hair growth. Consistent use of grape seed oil as a supplement to usual hair-care routine will boost up your hair growth and make your hair resilient, healthier, and good-looking. Grape seed oil, which is extracted from cold-pressed grape seeds, contains antioxidants that may help to block the production of DHT, a hormone that causes hair loss.
Grape seed oil can also be used as a carrier for essential oils that promote relaxation of the hair follicles, preventing hair loss caused by cortisol, a hormone released when you're stressed. Try mixing a few teaspoons of grape seed oil with a drop or two of jojoba oil and rubbing it into your scalp to treat hair loss. Grape seed oil has virtually all necessary nutrients that help hair to grow stronger and healthy. It contains 9 vitamins – A, E, C, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9 and B12. Also it has following micro and macro elements – potassium, sodium, calcium and iron that nurture the hair and scalp.
Dandruff and other dermatological conditions caused by a dry, flaky scalp can be treated with grape seed oil, which is full of emollients and nutrients that can help nurture the growth of healthy skin cells. Try rubbing grape seed oil into the scalp in a circular motion, loosening the skin while allowing the oil to be absorbed, as well as promoting blood flow.
Hair that gets greasy quickly. Grapeseed oil is meant for such a type of hair, although it sounds unbelievable. No, this oil wouldn’t make your hair greaser. It doesn’t clog the pores, but, on the contrary, constricts them, gets absorbed quickly, doesn’t leave any film and regulates the work of the sebaceous glands. While it may seem counter-intuitive to use an oil to treat oily skin, that is exactly what grape seed oil is used for. The last thing you want to do with oily skin is dry it out. In fact, that oiliness is a reaction of skin that is too dry. Grape seed oil is light to the touch and never leaves skin feeling heavy with oil. Instead, it effectively moisturizes the skin, balancing both dry and oily patches. When used as a toner, grape seed oil can penetrate blocked pores and cleanse breakouts.
Scalp, suffering from seborrhea, and hair ends, damaged from daily styling. Grapeseed oil provides a good effect on blood vessels of the scalp. It restores damaged capillaries, cleans their walls from dangerous deposits, produce rejuvenating effect, improves blood circulation and tones hair follicles. Vitamin E, containing in the oil nourishes, heals and protects your hair and scalp.
Generally brittle hair. Grapeseed oil protects hair from brittleness, restores elasticity and shine of every lock.
