Is Your Hair Thinning? Try Sunflower Oil!

SunflowerseedoilAre you searching for a solution to help decrease thinning hair? There are various reasons one may experience hair loss, this can range from diet factors to heredity, or even using the wrong hair care products.

In my 4 ½ years of my natural hair care journey, I’ve rotated various oils in my regimen. This year I’ve been using sunflower oil in place of castor oil, and I’m loving the results.

Sunflower oil (Helianthus Annuus) is used for cooking, however, it is also used as base oils in other hair oils. Rich in vitamins A, D, and E, Sunflower oil also contains the important minerals like calcium, iron, and potassium. Between the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and some fatty acids, sunflower oil lays the groundwork for strong, healthy, luxurious hair.

Sunflower oil contains Oleic Acid, which is also an Omega 9 acid that stimulates natural hair growth. Omega 9 acid can prevent hair loss, brittle hair, and even split ends if used on a regular basis.

Apply and massage sunflower oil to your hair and scalp to condition your hair, making it stronger and healthier with each application.

Ultraviolet lights can damage hair and scalp, but sunflower oil aids in protecting hair from sun exposure.

Light, and chock full of antioxidants, sunflower oil easily absorbs into the scalp and hair shaft. Other uses besides cooking and hair care are makeup removal and skin moisturizer.


With every application, sunflower oil helps fight those free radicals that can destroy healthy cells. Sunflower oil also prevents wrinkles and guards against skin cancer thanks to the antioxidants it contains. If you use this oil enough, you’ll notice not only a healthy natural glow to your skin, but you’ll notice how quickly scars can heal.

This precious oil serves as protection for the skin, making it difficult for viruses and other bacteria to enter the body. Taken internally, it can boost the immune system.

How do you use sunflower oil in your beauty regimen?

Just started using sunflower oil mixed with two other oils as a hair rinse and as a hot oil treatment, and I like what I’m feeling, softer, stronger, and fuller. Will keep in my hair regemin. Thanks for all your wonderful natural hair information.

Ceramide oils are fantastic. I discussed it a bit on my blog but I appreciate the info shared here also. I love wheat germ oil most, then hemp. I don’t recall trying sunflower. Will look for it when I’m in the store next time.
