🍃 Its a great idea to include pumpkin seeds as a part of your daily diet. This supports hair growth and prevents hair loss from within.
🍃What are its benefits?
1️⃣Pumpkin seed oil (PSO)is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, especially oleic and linoleic acid, as well as vitamin E—all of which have the potential to aid in hair growth.
2️⃣What’s more, pumpkin seed oil also has the ability to block androgens like dihydrotestosterone (or DHT), which is what ultimately causes female- or male-pattern hair loss (also called androgenetic alopecia).
3️⃣Since it has anti-inflammatory properties, it can reduce free radical damage and irritation on the scalp—this in turn helps healthy hair grow in.
4️⃣PSO treats dry hair, easing frizz and preventing breakage.
