Why sunflower oil is good for hair?

Sunflower oil has a number of characteristics that make it suitable for hair care. Among them we can mention the following:

Anti-alopecic / anti- baldness: Sunflower oil contains components that can prevent or slow hair loss. Among them, oleic acid, linoleic acid and palmitic acid.

Anti- dandruff: Sunflower oil is rich in menthol, a component important for dandruff treatment.

Antibacterial: Sunflower oil is rich in antibacterial components therefore, used in shampoos or hair products, it will help to keep the scalp free of microorganisms that can alter its state.

Antipruritic: Antipruritic properties are provided by glycine and menthol. They are adequate to prevent itching of the scalp, something very common in hair problems like dandruff or seborrhea.

Moisturizing: Like other vegetable oils, sunflower oil is a good scalp and hair moisturizer. Its application will promote better handling of the hair which will give it smoothness. This will imply less daily hair loss and a better state of the hair follicle.
