Flax seeds contain an extremely high amount of omega-3 and omega-6 alphalinolenic acid (ALA), which is further concentrated in cold pressed flaxseed oil, it also has an enormous amount of vitamin A, B and E, and it has become an irreplaceable ingredient of many medical and cosmetic products.
Flaxseed oil is both good for dry and greasy hair. In the first case, it nourishes the scalp and hair follicles, in the second case, it regulates the secretion of sebum.
While hair is composed primarily of keratin protein, omega-3 fats nourish the hair follicles, encouraging healthy hair growth. It is a perfect antidandruff remedy that also helps to prevent hair loss and other hair and scalp conditions.
One of the most common indicators of the omega-3 deficiency is said to be dry, lackluster and brittle hair. So, the most important part is getting more omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.
