Benefits of

Many women with regular use of oil from flax seeds note the improvement of hair condition, the disappearance of dandruff, the cessation of loss, the normalization of fatty skin balance.

Due to the presence of linoleic acid, linseed oil is rapidly absorbed and, upon drying, forms a thin film on the surface of the hair shafts, thereby protecting them.

Flaxseed oil is suitable for all types of hair, however, it is simply necessary for dry curls, since it can provide them with high-quality food in a short time and return strength, elasticity and shine.

Flax oil can be combined with other base oils and ethers. Thus, when combined with essential oil of tea tree, an effective antibacterial agent is obtained, which helps to eliminate dandruff.

Also this oil can be used as an independent tool. It should be noted that it does not provoke irritation on the skin. It is enough to soak up their hair, massage the surface of the head slightly, put on a shower cap and a towel. After half an hour, wash your hair with shampoo.

Today, flaxseed oil can be purchased in the form of capsules, and in liquid form. It has exactly the same effect. It's easier to take capsules inside, and use liquid oil to make masks.

To prevent oil from rancid and prematurely oxidizing, several recommendations must be followed.

  • After opening the package, the oil should be kept in a refrigerator with a tightly closed lid.
  • After the first opening, the oil should be stored for no more than a month, then it becomes unsuitable.

If you do not comply with these rules, then a useful product from the source of essential fatty acids will become a carrier of harmful free radicals.
