BENEFITS OF SOULFLOWER GRAPE SEED OIL FOR SKIN AND HAIR


1. Getting Rid of Hair Loss

Grape seed oil can also be used as a carrier for essential oils that promote hair follicle relaxation, gets rid of frizzy hair, prevents hair loss caused by cortisol, a stress hormone.

      The Grapeseed oil contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant that aids in tissue formation, as well as linoleic acid, a fatty acid that promotes hair and skin growth. If your hair is brittle or weak and if you have frizzy hair, applying grape seed oil to it can help restore its strength and shine.
