From stimulating follicles to nourishing your scalp, prepare to add some spice to your hair care regimen and discover the cinnamon secret to getting those gorgeous locks you’ve always dreamed of! 


          Unveiling the Spice: All About Cinnamon! 

  • The bark of many species of the evergreen trees of the Cinnamomum genus, which are members of the laurel family, is the source of cinnamon, an ancient spice. Its four main species are: 


       [A] Cinnamomum cassia - one of those ingredients that can be easily found in every kitchen household. Southern China is the native country for its production. 


       [B] Cinnamomum verum - Sri Lanka wins the title of "true cinnamonbecause it originates primarily there. It is hugely known for its aroma, lighter color, and sweetness. 


       [C] Cinnamomum burmannii – Indonesian cinnamon is the name that always comes up right after this. It usually tastes good as compared to the other cinnamons. 


       [D] Cinnamomum loureiroiVietnamese cinnamon, or Cinnamomum loureiroi, is generally thought to have a stronger flavor. 



  • These were the top four main species of cinnamon. We'll now discuss the benefits of cinnamon for the health of the scalp, including how it stimulates hair follicles, reduces inflammation, and promotes thickness and general hair development. 



      1  Stimulate those follicles. 

  • Cinnamon gets your blood flowing to your scalp, bringing lots of good stuff to your hair roots. This can help your hair grow faster and healthier! 
  • There's something called procyanidin in cinnamon that encourages your hair roots to grow quicker. 
  • Then there's cinnamaldehyde, which helps your blood move better, giving your hair roots the green light to grow. 



      2 Anti-microbial properties. 

  • The natural antibacterial properties of cinnamon act as a barrier against dandruff and scalp infections. 
  • Cinnamon creates an environment that is helpful to the growth of stronger hair follicles by eliminating harmful bacteria from your scalp. 



      3 Scalp Salvation: Oil balance and beyond. 

  • Regular usage of cinnamon will help maintain scalp health. 
  • It balances oil production and reduces itchiness and flakiness. 
  • To preserve the general health of hair and encourage ideal hair development, a healthy scalp is essential. 



      4 Battle dandruff like a warrior. 

  • The antifungal qualities of cinnamon fight fungi, including Malassezia, which causes dandruff. 
  • The presence of naturally occurring antioxidants called polyphenols helps treat scalp infections as they have antibacterial and antioxidant qualities. 



  • These are the benefits that we get from including cinnamon in our hair care regime. We know you are surprised to think how being a normal kitchen ingredient solves almost every hair issue that we have. Your question is, How should you use cinnamon?



          How to Cinnamon-Fy Your hair care routine.

  • If you experience any redness, itching, or burning, discontinue it. 


      2  Sensitive Scalp:

  • Consider diluting it heavily with a carrier oil like olive oil or jojoba oil.
