The reason you should be using Vitamin E oil on your hair

Vitamin E oil has made quite a splash in the beauty industry. While there's a lot of hype surrounding the benefits of using Vitamin E oil, it's mainly praised as being one of the best supplements for beautiful skin. However, according to Harper's Bazaar, it can work wonders for your hair, too. The publisher claims it can help your hair grow, prevent breakage, and even prevent split ends. But does it actually work or is it too good to be true? Well, according to the experts, it seems like we should start putting Vitamin E oil on our hair immediately.

”Vitamin E is an antioxidant which repairs hair follicles and promotes hair growth," dermatologist Ajay Rana confirmed to Doctor NDTV. "It promotes blood circulation and acts as a moisturiser for hair, preventing breakage and brittle hair." She continued, saying, "Vitamin E is also known to protect your hair from sun and other elements." Apparently, it can also add shine, balance your hair's pH levels, and improve the overall health of your scalp. Sign us up!

How to use vitamin E oil on your hair

According to dermatologist Ajay Rana, one the best and easiest way to use Vitamin E oil on hair is simply by mixing it in with other hair products (think shampoo and conditioner) or other oils. ”Vitamin E oil can be mixed with other agents like avocado or castor oil to make moisturisers or hair serums to encourage hair growth,” she advised Doctor NDTV. If that sounds like too much work, you can also look for drugstore hair products that contain it and that should suffice.

Alternatively, you can consume Vitamin E as part of a balanced diet rather than add it to your beauty routine. According to the UK's National Health System (NHS), you can find Vitamin E in various foods, like nuts, seeds, and wheatgerm. You could also consider taking a supplement. However, it's wise to discuss this with your primary care physician to ensure it's the best option for you and your body.
