As salaamu alaikum & Hello ladies,   Lets talk Emu oil ,I am sooooo interested in this oil.  I have heard nothing but great things about Emu oil.  It's said to help your hair growth by at least 10-20 %  if not more.  If used properly.  I will be adding this to my small list of scalp oil mixes, this week.  It is a little expensive for just a small bottle, however I am not wasteful ( or try not to be) in the area of spending.  But , after reading such great things about this oil I felt I would give it a go.  I will keep you guys posted on my results.  Below I will post a bit about this oil in relation to hair, however this oil has many , many great use's for other area's of the body as well.

Emu Oil for Hair

Emu Oil has been found to work remarkably on improving thin hair and preventing Hair Loss! Weve all heard of one off miracle cure products and drugs to get your hair back, most of them cost a fortune to get, and none of them are guarenteed. Hair loss has been found to be more common in men than women, Many studies have been done to figure out why, one common theory is that it is because women, as a general rule, have more fatty tissue on their scalps then men do, which gives more of a cushion to the minute blood capillaries that carry blood to their hair root, hair bulb and papilla.

Another reason might be that women usually brush thier hair more than men, which also stimulates the flow of blood and helps in keeping the scalp loose and healthy. While we have all heard stories about what may cause hair loss: vitamin deficiencies, poor circulation to the scalp, genetics, too much hat wearing, etc. Surprisingly, these theories have been disproved. Hair loss, according to experts, is caused by a combination of aging, hormonal changes and having a family history of baldness.

How Emu Oil prevents Hair Loss?

According to clinical studies in Australia and the U.S, Emu Oil is an excellent anti-inflammatory agent that can rejuvenate skin cells and produce up to 80% in healthy hair growth. Emu oil users report what can be defined as an "awakening" of their lifeless hair follicles to the growth "anagen" phase. More studies show that the benefit of Emu Oil for hair, is that it increases the synthesis of DNA in the epidermis - stimulating skin regeneration, hair follicle development and growth, and the proliferation of the cells around the hair follicle.

What makes it so good?

One benefit is linolenic acid, and oleic acid which provides a local anti-inflammatory effect. Research into the Benefits of Emu Oil for hair has shown the linoleic acid in Emu oil to be an effective anti-androgen, and a potent 5 alpha reductase inhibitor, which are key factors in the treatment of hair loss. Emu Oil also enlarges hair follicles when used regulary on the scalp, thus to "thicken" the hair. The anti-inflammatory properties of Emu oil also helps alleviate hair loss resulting from inflammation of the scalp and hair follicles, and other scalp problems.

Now, I am not suffering from hair thinning or hair loss, But what has been said about Emu oil as an aid in hair growth is really worth a try.

As stated in previous posts I am doing a few 1-2 month challenges with my hair , And oils mixes or straight oil for my scalp  is one of them.  So , my plan is to report back to you guys on my progress & final results.
