Applying sesame oil results in strengthening, darkening and nourishing the hair-shafts while promoting new hair growth. It spreads the natural oils of the hair, increasing hair luster and vibrancy. It is believed to reduce the heat of the body and thus helps promoting sound sleep at night and preventing hair loss when massaged on scalp. A warm oil massage lubricates and conditions the scalp, helping to prevent flakes, excessive brittleness, split-ends and dry scalp. It helps enhance blood circulation in the head and neck area to relax the mind and nervous system.
