  • 4 min. read

When it comes to healthy skin and hair, few oils can beat almond oil with its staggering number of benefits. A few drops of almond oil, when ingested internally, can provide you with your daily doses of vitamins K and E.


Since it is low in saturated fats, people who incorporate almonds daily into their diets have reported a noticeable drop in body weight, making this magic nut ideal for weight loss.


With the Keto health fad taking over fitness regimes of health aficionados, flour made from ground almond nuts are being used in many low-carb recipes.


Finally, due to its high monounsaturated fat content, almonds have been linked to lower the risk of certain cancers, like endometrial cancer and heart disease.


However, one area that is often overlooked is sweet almond oil's link to hair health. While other oils, such as macadamia nut oil, are widely talked about when it comes to hair care, people know less about almond oil.


In this blog, we shall look at seven astonishing benefits of almond oil for hair and answer some of the most frequently asked questions related to its use.

What is Almond Oil?

What is Almond Oil?


Almond is a seed found inside the almond fruit, which closely resembles a peach. The almond nuts are high in fats, making them ideal for oil. Oil can be extracted from almonds nuts in two ways: one involves the application of high heat and chemicals.


The result is refined almond oil, which is low in nutritional content but also cheap and commercially popular. The other variety is cold pressed almond oil, which is more expensive but also much more beneficial than the commercial varieties sold in the market.

7 Astonishing Benefits of Almond Oil for Hair


1. Provides Hydration

While most types of oil are great for hydration, almond oil is particularly known for its hydrating and nourishing properties. People who live in a drier climate often complain of dry hair and split ends.


An arid or a semi-arid climate can rob hair strands of their essential moisture and leave them dry and straw-like. Regular massages of sweet almond oil can restore the natural moisture of hair strands, leaving them hydrated and nourished.

2. Helps to Remove Dead Cells

One of the most common complaints of people who have dry hair is the build-up of dead cells and skin flakes, which leads to itching. Commonly known as Seborrheic Dermatitis, this medical condition can be particularly embarrassing.


Not just that, if left untreated, this can also lead to hair loss. Almond oil softens the dead cells on the scalp and this helps to wash them off. Regular use of almond oil can prevent the build-up of flaky skin and reduce itching to a great extent.

3. Promotes Hair Growth

As discussed earlier, almond oil is rich in vitamins K and E, both of which have been linked to hair growth and beautiful skin. You can massage almond oil to your hair at night and wash it off in the morning. Regular massage will not only allow the nutrients to seep in through the scalp, but it will also help to increase the blood circulation to hair strands.

4. Repair Damaged Hair

Almond oil not only promotes hair growth, but its lubricating properties also make it ideal for repairing damaged hair strands. The oleic and linoleic acids found in almond oil gently lubricate the hair strands, repairing the damaged strands. With regular use, almond oil can greatly improve hair texture, making hair strands soft and lustrous.

5. Prevents Split Ends and Tangles

Tangles and split ends are very common with dry hair. Combing through such hair strands can be a nightmare. Almond oil provides an easy solution by gently nourishing and moisturizing the tresses. This prevents the formation of split ends and tangles.

6. Acts as a Conditioning Agent

Almond oil for hair can also act as a conditioning agent. Instead of a conditioning mask, mix one tablespoon of sweet almond oil along with coconut oil and one whole avocado mashed-up. Massage it on the scalp and all over hair strands, from root to tip, and wait for at least 30 minutes before washing it off.

7. Improves Hair Shine

Almond oil is full of antioxidants, which are great for both skin and hair. When applied on hair after a shower, almond oil is supposed to greatly improve shine and luster.

Conclusion

Cold pressed sweet almond oil, as discussed above, has a host of benefits for hair. It promotes the growth of natural hair, prevents hair fall and damage, and acts against dandruff and inflammation. While prevention is better than cure, for more advanced hair problems one should seek professional help. One of UAE’s best-known hair regrowth clinics is Advanced Hair Studio.

It took me 1 Year to decide whether I wanted to go through with the hair restoration procedure using a Natural Looking Hair piece. I did a lot of research and consulted with many people who had done the procedure.

I was convinced to go ahead due to the information session / in-depth knowledge and the excellent customer service skills of Sanjay- the manager.

I did the procedure 1 month ago and I can honestly say that it was the best decision ever. Advanced Hair Studio provides the best quality for the Hair Pieces. The staff takes the time to understand what you are looking for as a customer. They style your hair based on your facial structure and I must truly admit that their stylists are pure Artists! My favourite stylist is Mohamad from Lebanon. He does magic with his hands and I am always thrilled with the new styles/ suggestions he provides.

I must admit that AHS is on the more expensive side if you were to consider the other competitors in Dubai. However, it is all worth every penny spent! You will not regret it.

Do not over think it. Just go ahead an do the procedure. You will evolve into a whole new person! Believe me! :-)

I started losing my hair in my mid-twenties and in spite of trying all sorts of treatments it gradually got worse and worse. By my late twenties I started cutting my hair short. Whenever I tried to grow it, it used to look a mess and was impossible to style because of my receding and thinning. I was looking at doing a hair transplant for a while, but I kept delaying it in hope that there was some alternative.

When I was in my mid-thirties I first came across AHS. I was a bit skeptical but I thought I’d find out what they could do. I was expecting a sales pitch but what I learned about hair loss and hair restoration from them was presented in a straightforward and logical way, without lots of medical terminology. They take time to explain the root cause of the problem and explore all the different treatments.

I decided to go ahead with the treatment and as it turns out, having AHS fix my hair was one of the best decisions I ever made. I still cannot believe how good my results are. I just wish I’d done it 10 years earlier rather than wasting so much time (and hair!). I would urge anyone who is thinking of doing something to check them out.
