It’s a fact — you can’t expect much hair growth during your natural hair journey if you are battling hair loss, or worse, balding. For many women, going natural was a result of hair disasters such as these. We know chemicals can lead to damaged hair and scalp, so we turn to natural alternatives to remedy and prevent the issues we’ve come to face.
But sometimes, simply leaving the chemicals alone isn’t enough. So it leaves you wondering what to do next. You’ve tried deep conditioning, co-washing, shampooing less and even wearing protective styles, but nothing seems to stop the clumps of hair that fall out. Not to mention the excessive dryness.
Unfortunately, a lot of naturals end up doing big chop after big chop, just hoping that the new hair growth will do better. I once heard it said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
The key to healthy hair and steady growth is nourishment for your scalp and hair follicles. There is a large number of people who’ve suffered from balding and hair loss who swear by natural remedies. One of those is black cumin seeds and its oil.
What is black cumin seed oil?
You may have heard of cumin as a cooking spice, but it’s usefulness extends much further than the kitchen. Black cumin seed oil and comes from the seed of the nigella sativa plant. It is made up of over 100 nutrients and vitamins that make it an excellent remedy for hair loss.
