In Ayurveda, sesame oil or tila tailam is the preferred oil for promoting hair growth. It is even used for scalp massages. Sesame oil is also known as gingelly oil.
It is enriched with Vitamin E, B-complex, and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and protein that strengthens the hair from the roots and deeply nourishes.
In Ayurvedic medicine, regular head massages with sesame oil help in relieving headaches, preventing hair loss and premature greying of hair, strengthening the roots, calming the mind and enhancing the quality of sleep.
