There must be a thousand or more products that claim to be good for our hair. In this article I explore if taking flaxseed oil for hair specifically does anything to ensure hair growth or the prevention of hair loss.
There are a ton of what are described as supplemental or alternate medicines available today. The manufacturers make great claims as to what these can do. I have found that although many claims are made they are usually supported by people selling these products to a market of people who may just try out their latest product.
On this website I discuss a lot of the supposed benefits of flaxseed oil and no doubt there are some as it naturally provides certain fatty acids that the body does not produce on its own. That is a good thing and there is clear medical evidence from many case studies to show that Omega 3 for example is good for our overall health.
Is There Anything In Flaxseed Oil That Makes It Good For Hair?
I think just about every hair product on the market makes claims to help with dandruff, oil problems, hair falling out, baldness and even the shine on our hair. Now personally I always look for evidence that there is some ingredients in a product that are known to help with hair growth.
There is nothing that I can see in flaxseed oil that would tell me that flaxseed oil is any good for your hair. It isn’t bad for your hair either but I think it is wrong to make the statement that it actually does anything for your hair. Have a look at the video below done by a young lady who tried this oil to see if it would make her hair grow longer or quicker?
She agrees with me that there is simply no sign of flaxseed oil doing anything specific for hair growth. I also believe that if anyone has found a cure for baldness then they have kept it a secret otherwise they would be a very rich person. I have done a lot of research on this, and apart from people who try to sell this as a hair enhancing product, I can not find anyone who has said this works.
Flaxseed Oil Gel for Hair
I did come across this interesting product and a variant on the standard flaxseed oil or capsules. Have a look at this video first and I will comment afterwards.
