Some of the ways in which oats can be beneficial for your hair are as follows.
Treatment of Dry and Itchy Scalp:
As stated earlier, oats are beneficial for dry skin and the same goes for hair care as well. Being a natural moisturizer, it can be applied on hair to get rid of dryness and itchiness and make your hair soft and shiny. It is often used as an ingredient in shampoos.
Treatment of Dandruff:
Oatmeal can be combined with other ingredients and applied on your hair before shampooing to get rid of dandruff.
Removes Excess Oil and Dirt:
Being a natural cleanser, it clears the scalp by removing excess sebum, oil and dirt accumulated in the scalp.
Combats Hair loss:
Hair loss can occur due to a number of reasons such as alopecia, harsh chemical treatments, hormonal imbalance or unhealthy lifestyle. Malnutrition, that is deficiency of essential vitamins and minerals, is the most common cause of hair loss. Oats contain high amounts of zinc, iron, magnesium and potassium that promote hair growth. A meal comprising of oats, berries and pumpkin is a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin A as well as other nutrients. Vitamin C prevents scurvy, a disease that can also cause hair loss. Vitamin A, on the other hand, promotes hair development and maintenance.
Great for Blond Hair:
Ground oats can be an excellent dry shampoo for blond haired beauties. All you need to do is rub some ground oats over your scalp and brush out excess oats with a boar bristle brush.
