Can puritan's vitamin E oil be used for hair loss

Vitamin E has always been associated with reducing hair fall and improving hair texture. Vitamin E is beneficial not only for our hair but our skin as well. It also helps in strengthening the immune system and thus is great for health too. Vitamin E is gaining a lot of popularity these days in a large number of hair care and skin products. It is used for a large number of skin ailments, such as scars and marks, acne, infections and so on.

You can use vitamin E oil to combat the problem of hair loss. However, here are a few additional remedies that you could also use to experience quicker results. Empty the contents of a vitamin E capsule into a bowl, to this you will need to add 2 teaspoons of coconut oil. Warm the two for about a minute on a slow fire. Once the mixture cools (but is still suitably warm), massage it into your scalp for 10-15 minutes. Now take a warm damp towel and wrap it around your scalp and hair. Once the oil has stayed on the scalp for about an hour or two, rinse it off with a mild shampoo. This remedy if preformed twice a week is known to reduce hair fall considerably. As an alternative you could also mix a teaspoon of either almond or olive oil with a few drops of vitamin E oil and follow the same method of application. It is known to be equally beneficial.

Additionally vitamin E is known to increase the oxygen uptake; this in turn helps in improving circulation on our scalp. We all know that a good head massage is great for the hair, as it stimulates blood circulation in the scalp. Adequate blood circulation is required to keep the hair follicles healthy and strong. As vitamin E is known to improve circulation, including it into your daily diet is recommended. Also, the health of our hair is largely dependent on our immune system, vitamin E helps in stimulating and promoting hair growth by boosting the immune function. Hence, include foods that are rich in this vitamin, into your daily diet. This will help in nourishing your hair from within. This particular vitamin can be found in olive oil, seeds, nuts, eggs, broccoli, spinach, sprouts, Brussels, Soya beans, wheat germ and avocados, thus incorporating them into your dietary regime will prove to be beneficial for your health, hair and skin.
