Do Moringa leaves do any good to control hair loss or help in controlling baldness? Are they really good for hair growth and baldness control as is being touted?
This educational video by Dr John Watts, noted dermatologist & trichologist and one of the Best Hair Transplant Surgeons, explores the miracle nature of Moringa leaves and Moringa oil.
Special Features: Moringa
Moringa leaves come with several benefits that are known to boost hair growth and prevent hair fall. “It has both anti-ageing and anti-oxidant properties that are hair-friendly,” says Dr John Watts.
This is not all as the nutrient-rich Moringa is known to be enriched with essential amino acids and contain 7 times more vitamin C than oranges, 4 times more calcium than milk and 4 times beta carotene than carrot.
Endowed with vitamin A and vitamin B, Moringa is known to make hair cells stronger and promote its growth cycle. “It is a rich source of vitamin C that helps in not only countering the damaging effect of free radicals but also repairing the damage,” said Dr John Watts.
The Moringa is also a good source of iron that helps in carrying more oxygen to the hair and zinc that promotes hair growth and controls hair loss.
Moringa Oil: Benefits
Moringa oil is derived from Moringa plant/leaves that contain zinc, silica, vitamin A and antioxidants. “The oil keeps the hair shiny and conditioned,” said Dr John Watts, adding that the zinc, silica and vitamin A prevent clogging of the sebaceous gland and help in the continued production of sebum.
Often one notices how deficiency of vitamin A make the scalp dry but regular use of Moringa oil to massage the scalp and prevent this problem. “Moringa oil can keep the scalp tissue soft,” informed Dr John Watts. He added that vitamin B, C, E and iron-rich Moringa oil also help in maintaining blood circulation to the hair roots.
Moringa Oil: Application
The best way to use Moringa oil is through regular massaging the scalp twice or thrice a week. “Once the massaging is done, one can tie a towel or a cloth on one’s scalp for an hour and then rinse it with shampoo. It will ensure the scalp absorbs the oil,” informed Dr John Watts.
Regular use of Moringa oil also helps keep dandruff away, control split ends and the scalp smooth.
In his concluding note, Dr John Watts, however, mentioned that the use of Moringa oil cannot help one to regain hair at baldness spots. “The only solution for baldness is a hair transplant,” he said while urging the viewers to share the video among their friends for awareness.
