Renowned dermatologist Dr Ajay Rana shares with HealthShots how walnut oil can prevent hair fall

Walnut oil is known to promote hair growth and control hair fall. It is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and has several therapeutic properties. Its anti-fungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties make it one of the most sought-after oils for the scalp and hair. It promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss, while making your hair shinier, stronger, and longer. 

As the oil is a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids, it also helps to prevent cell damage, thus saving the strands from falling off. 

In addition, Dr Rana adds, “Walnut oil is high in potassium, which helps in cell regeneration. This process accelerates and promotes hair growth. This oil also has some vitamins and biotin, which can promote hair growth. It contains potassium, which can add volume to your hair. It also strengthens the roots, can prevent scalp damage and infections, and promote hair growth.

Furthermore, hair thinning is a major issue, and walnut oil nourishes the hair and prevents it from breaking. 

Now make your walnut oil right at home

Here’s a DIY recipe of walnut oil, shared by Dr Rana:

Walnut oil is packed with nutrients such as vitamin A, D, omega-3 fats, antioxidants, and magnesium. This dry fruit is not just great for your overall health, but also for your mane.
