Natural cosmetics, like kings and queens Part 56, to the most beautiful

Bergamot promotes hair growth, regulates sebum production, counteracts dermatitis of the scalp and dandruff
Legend has it that Paris, called to decide which of the three goddesses, Hera, Athena and Aphrodite, was the most beautiful, chose Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and love. Paride gave Aphrodite an apple as a symbol of victory over rivals. In reality, according to some scholars, the gift to the most beautiful was not an apple but a bergamot. And this version is even more fascinating if we think about the results of recent studies on the properties of bergamot, which have tested its beneficial action on hair. Therefore, bergamot looks like a real fruit of beauty, capable of promoting hair growth, leaving it shiny, healthy and strong. So let us be inspired by ancient myths and create simple and powerful cosmetics at home, using bergamot, the fruit of Aphrodite!

Bergamot and its properties for hair health

Scientific studies have shown that bergamot oil is useful for promoting hair growth (Shao et al, Zhongguo Zhong Yao Za Zhi, 2003). Not only that, bergamot is also anti-inflammatory and healing, thanks to the presence of substances such as limonene and linalool. Therefore, this remedy is useful to counteract irritation, dermatitis and itching of the scalp (Perna et al, Food Sci Nutr, 2019). Finally, bergamot helps to rebalance sebum production by helping in case of oily skin and dandruff (Orchard et al, Evid Based Complement Alternat Med., 2017).

Bergamot, a real hair cosmetic

You can take advantage of the benefits of bergamot by adding a drop of its essential oil to your shampoo when you apply it on your head. Alternatively, you can prepare a revitalizing and anti-fall mask for your hair to be made in the evening. Quickly melt in a water bath two tablespoons of coconut oil, the best vegetable oil you can find capable of preventing protein loss in hair, leaving it healthy and strong, and one of jojoba (Rele et al, J Cosmet Sci, 2003). Remove from the bain-marie and let cool down. Add 2 drops of bergamot essential oil and two drops of lavender essential oil, which is another essential oil capable of stimulating hair growth (Lee et al, Toxicol Res, 2016). Apply to damp scalp and continue to the ends of the hair, leave for fifteen minutes, then rinse with shampoo.
