Hibiscus stimulates the hair growth

If you are tired of seeing your tresses float down the drain each time you wash your hair, now is possibly the best time to consider hibiscus oil for hair. Hibiscus is a natural powerhouse of amino acids, which provide your hair with nutrients that promote hair growth. Amino acids are great at producing keratin, a building block of hair that binds the hair and prevents breakage. Keratin also promotes the thickness of the hair strands, making it much more manageable. Now you can cancel your appointment at the salon for a keratin treatment and resort to using the hibiscus oil instead.

Hibiscus conditions your hair

Chemical-laden hair products strip our hair from natural oils and nutrients. This makes our hair much drier over time. This is why moisturising with a natural oil becomes extremely important to protect your hair from dull and damaged tresses. Hibiscus flowers contain mucilage, which is a naturally occurring conditioner. The slimy feel to the crushed hibiscus leaves and petals are due to mucilage.

Hibiscus prevents baldness

Hibiscus extracts have been found as effective as minoxidil and finasteride, both used extensively to treat baldness. Regular use of hibiscus can also result in prevention of hair fall and promote hair regrowth.

Hibiscus protects your scalp from environmental stressors

Hibiscus acts as an astringent that calms your ailing scalp and protects it from UVB rays. The cleansing properties of hibiscus balance the pH level of your scalp and control the oil build-up. A soothed scalp also means relief from itchy scalp and stronger hair follicles.

Hibiscus to prevent pre- mature grey hair

Traditionally, Hibiscus was used as a natural dye to mask grey hair. The antioxidants and vitamins present in Hibiscus help produce melanin, the naturally occurring pigment that gives hair its natural colour.

Benefits Of Hibiscus For Skin

1. Fights Aging Signs

With high amounts of antioxidants, hibiscus helps your skin cells recover from the damage caused by skin ailments, wounds, pollutants, UV rays, etc. “The anthocyanins present in hibiscus promote the production of elastin and cell turnover in your skin, thus making it appear youthful and supple,” says Dr. Zeel.

Researches claim that hibiscus sabdariffa calyx aqueous extract has potential anti-ageing effects on the skin against UVB-induced photoaging.

2. Improves & Evens Skin Tone

Be it hyperpigmentation, discoloration, dark spots, age spots, or any type of uneven spots, hibiscus is your go-to remedy. Hibiscus contains malic acid, alpha hydroxy acids and citric acids which work to revamp your skin tone while controlling the melanin production. Besides, it also nourishes your skin.

A study by Biomolecules has found that the anthocyanins present in Hibiscus syriacus L. act as potential skin whitening agents by inhibiting the melanogenesis in the skin.

3. Hydrates Skin Well

If you are someone with dry, flaky, and itchy skin, hibiscus can work wonders. It has powerful hydrating properties [2] which makes your skin texture turn soft and smooth.

4. Cleanses Skin Pores

Hibiscus contains saponins which helps in cleansing your skin naturally and gently. Also, the organic acids present in the herbs aid in the elimination of dead skin cells and keep your skin pores clear.

A study on Safety and Efficacy of Skin Cleanser Contained Roselle Extract in Acne suggests that hibiscus-based cleansers are safe for skin and do not cause any allergic effects and irritation.

5. Tightens Open Skin Pores

Hibiscus has astringent properties [3] which help to tighten open skin pores, thus, controlling overproduction of sebum in your skin. “The vitamin C present in hibiscus helps in tightening your facial skin by promoting collagen production,” says Dr. Zeel.

Controls Inflammation

The anti-inflammatory activity of beta carotene present in hibiscus helps in reducing skin inflammatory disorders while healing itchiness and redness. Also, the anthocyanins in the hibiscus work to control the oxidative stress [4] in your skin and the inflammation which comes along.

Speeds Up Wound Healing

Hibiscus aids in healing wounds faster by increasing the production of fibronectin protein in your skin. It also boosts hydration and cell regeneration in your skin which play a significant role in the process of wound healing.

Protect Collagen In Skin

“Hibiscus contains myricetin, an antioxidant which helps in reducing the production of collagenase which is an enzyme that works to damage collagen in your skin,” says Dr. Zeel. This, in turn, prevents and controls the skin damage caused by different factors and improves the natural glow of your skin.

Prevents Acne

Hibiscus contains acids that act as chemical exfoliators and help to clear the clogged skin pores. It also has antibacterial properties that work to fight acne-causing bacteria on the skin. Thus, it prevents the formation of pimples.

Moisturizes Skin

The mucilage, a sticky content present in hibiscus which helps the plant to store its food and water, can acts as an ultimate moisturizer and nourishing agent for your skin. It also helps to lock the moisture in your skin tissue for a longer time.
