1. Ginger Promotes Longer, Stronger Hair

Ginger helps improve the circulation of the scalp while also stimulating each hair follicle, which in turn promotes longer, stronger hair. The many vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids in ginger also contribute to strengthening your hair strands to combat hair loss, and ginger contributes to restoring moisture loss.

A good hair care tip is to make a hair mask by grating some fresh ginger root and mixing it with one spoon of Mielle's Mint Almond Oil. Massage the mixture onto your scalp in a circular motion, and leave on your hair for about 45 minutes to an hour so it can reach each hair follicle. Then, rinse it with our Babassu Oil Sulfate-Free ShampooWhen paired with these Mielle natural hair products, ginger oil for hair growth is both natural and safe, serving as an excellent treatment for creating strong, healthy hair.

2. Ginger Helps to Fights Dandruff

Do you suffer from dry scalp and dandruff? Ginger has antiseptic properties that help to reduce scalp infections and dandruff. You can add fresh ginger to your shampoo and massage into your scalp for the best results. If you have a flaky scalp, stimulate your follicles with a light massage using a ginger scalp treatment, such as Mielle’s own Hawaiian Ginger Scalp Treatment.

3. Ginger Conditions Your Hair

Ginger provides some natural conditioning benefits to help improve the look and feel of your hair. The unique oils in fresh ginger root present in our Hawaiian Ginger Moisturizing Overnight Conditioner double as potent antioxidants. These antioxidants help protect your hair follicles against damage and hair breakage.
