How can sesame oil treat dandruff?

Massaging your hair with sesame oil can help eliminate dandruff. The oil works to cool and soothe your scalp when massaging it into the scalp. Massage for about 10 mins before you go to bed, wrap your head for 10 mins and then rinse it out. For a more effective outcome, leave the oil on your head overnight and rinse it out next morning.

Sesame Seed Oil has been used as a healing oil for thousands of years and is known as the Queen of Oils. Great as an all-over body moisturizer or massage oil, bath oil and sun care oil, it is an excellent sunscreen (SPF4): absorbs 39% of radiation from the sun. Used after exposure to sun or wind it will calm the burns. It protects the skin from the effects of chlorine in swimming pool water. If used before and after radiation treatments, sesame seed oil will help neutralize the flood of oxygen radicals which such treatments cause. Sesame seed oil is a cell growth regulator and slows down cell growth and replication.

Sesame oil is light, odor-free and spreads easily over skin. It absorbs readily, with no greasy feeling. It is rich in nutrients; active in vitamins A and E and contains 32% natural protein. It is rich in essential fatty acids and helps to maintain integrity of the skin tissue while restructuring and moisturizing the skin. With its vitamin E content, it's also a benefit to the heart and nervous system.

Sesame Oil is naturally antibacterial for common skin pathogens, such as staphylococcus and streptococcus as well as common skin fungus: athlete’s foot fungus, dry scalp dandruff, psoriasis. Naturally antiviral and anti inflammatory.

A sesame oil massage is an excellent idea to control dandruff. Sesame oil can be massaged on the scalp for 10 minutes (once a week) and washed out by a fresh shower bath
