How to Use Emu Oil to Supercharge Your Hair Growth
Are You Experiencing Hair Loss?
Have you started to notice that your edges are moving farther and farther back from your forehead?
Is more of your scalp showing than you'd like?
CAUSES AND SOLUTIONS
Why am I having hair loss at my edges?
Let's start by talking about one of the most common causes of hair loss, especially at the edges around the face: traction alopecia.
This is a fancy name for hair fall due to physical stress and pulling on the hair strands. It's usually associated with hair styles that involve tight braids or ponytails, weaves, extensions and anything else that pulls at the hair.
All this pulling not only yanks a lot of hair out, but the hair that remains can develop inflammation around the roots. Once that happens the roots shut down on their hair producing process.
What can I do to get my edges back?
The only way to turn this around is to
1. Stop the pulling and
2. Heal the inflammation
The first one is fixed by wearing your hair in a style that doesn't require pulling.
Thats one of the reasons so many women are embracing natural hair nowadays.
Yes, it can take a while for hair to grow out enough to show off its kinky curly natural beauty, but once women get past that transition stage they never look back.
The second step is to address the inflammation around the hair follicles.
Research studies have shown that emu oil has anti-inflammatory properties. (Which is why many people with arthritis or swollen joints use it as well.)
What is the best oil to regrow my edges?
Clinical studies have shown that Emu Oil can reawaken dormant hair follicles and improve hair growth.
It nourishes the roots and reduces inflammation to bring them back to health.
How does emu oil help hair grow?
The answer lies in its composition. Emu oil contains:
Vitamin E, an anti-oxidant and healing agent
Vitamin A, which is known for repairing the skin;
Terpines, which are antiseptic agents
Sapogens, which are skin softening agents
Linolenic acid, which relieves muscle and joint pain
Oleic acid, which is a proven skin cell regenerator
And most important, essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce itself and that can reduce inflammation in the skin
When applied to the scalp, emu oil penetrates deeply, reaching through more layers of the skin than other hair growth oils, even castor oil.Emu oil can do this thanks to its small molecular size and similar composition to our own natural skin oils.
How do I choose the best emu oil for hair?
To get the best growth results it's important that you choose the right emu oil. Here's what you need to know:
Not all emu oils are equal.
To ensure the safest and highest quality product, choose emu oil that has been fully refined and purified naturally and is AEA Certified.
That certification means that it has gone through rigorous testing by independent third party chemists to assure it meets the very high standards established by the American Emu Association. Emu Joy Pure Emu Oil is not only AEA certified, tests have shown it to be in the top 2% of emu oils in the U.S.
Does emu oil really work for hair loss?
Many of emu oil's biggest fans are women who experienced hair loss due to years of pulling it tightly into braids, weaves or wigs
"I listened to all kinds of advice on how to get my hair to grow back. No hairdresser could help me. I had almost given up until I found out about emu oil, and how it stimulates hair follicles to start growing hair again. So I decided to give it a try. MY gosh! It' been a couple months and I just started noticing how much my hairline is starting to look even on both sides. My right side is filling in nicely! It took me a while to realize it because I decided not to obsess with it (I know, not normal). I guess I didn't expect much since I had tried so many things. I read it was safe, so I just applied it and moved on. I wish now I had taken before/after pictures. I just put a SMALL amount and massage it into my scalp every other day. Don't plaster on too much, just a little is needed. I massage my scalp for a few min to increase blood flow and make sure emu oil is absorbed. Keep this up a couple months. If nothing grows, your follicles may be really dead. I was bald at the front for nearly 10 years and I'm really happy this worked."
"I have NATURAL hair and I can't tell you how beneficial this oil has been to my hair and scalp! My edges were thinning because during the winter, I wear lace wigs to protect my hair from the harsh weather and the combs laying against my scalp all day cause sensitivity and hair loss, this oil is growing back my edges!!!!"
"It DOES work for hairloss. I use it everyday and have hair growing back in places that have become almost bald (temple areas)."
"My frontal hairline and the small “baby hairs” as people call them, grew in abundance."
