Ginger root remedy for damaged-hair
Unfiltered sesame oil may have a darkening affect on your hair but it contains the most nutrients.
- Combine 1 teaspoon grated ginger with ¼ cup sesame oil
- Mix thoroughly
- Massage oil into scalp and leave on for 10 minutes
- Repeat weekly as desired.
- If you scale this up to make larger amounts, put the grated ginger into a piece of cheesecloth and squeeze the juice into the oil. The oil will keep longer if it does not contain pieces of ginger. Store in the refrigerator if you plan to keep it for more than a week.
Why ginger root and sesame oil are good for your hair
