A beautiful sunset

Fall is the perfect season to switch things up with your hair. The leaves change color, the air gets cooler and it’s the perfect time to add some spice to your hair routine. Cinnamon is a great way to perk up your hair this fall. It is a natural antioxidant that protects hair from environmental factors. Plus, it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe an irritated scalp. And it smells delicious! So add some cinnamon to your routine this fall and you’ll see how your hair feels nicer and softer to the touch.

The benefits of cinnamon for hair.

  • Promote growth:

According to traditional Chinese medicine, cinnamon is a warming herb that promotes blood circulation. This increased blood flow can promote hair growth because it carries oxygen and nutrients to the follicles. Additionally, cinnamon is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect the scalp from free radical damage. In a recent study, participants who applied cinnamon-based hair oil to their scalps saw an increase in hair growth.

  • Prevention of split ends:

Cinnamon has long been used as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments. From soothing indigestion to easing arthritis pain, this humble spice has a wide range of benefits. But did you know that cinnamon can also help prevent split ends in your hair? Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties. Applied to the scalp, it can help soothe irritation and reduce the risk of fungal infections. Its ability to stimulate blood circulation helps nourish hair follicles and boosts hair growth. Therefore, incorporating cinnamon into your hair care routine can help preserve the shine of your hair and prevent split ends from forming.

  • Dandruff reduction:

Applied topically, cinnamon can help reduce dandruff by reducing inflammation. Thanks to its antibacterial properties, its use restores the natural shine of the hair and protects the scalp from any infection.

Here are 4 homemade cinnamon hair treatments.

Cinnamon hair mask:

To use cinnamon to reduce dandruff, mix one teaspoon of ground cinnamon with two tablespoons of olive or coconut oil. Massage the mixture into your scalp.
