Emu oil is an all-natural remedy found and used by Australians aborigines for hundreds and hundreds of years. It has many very important benefits for the skin and the bones and has not been found to have any harmful effects so far. It is extracted from the fat of emus hunted in Australia.
It is proven to heal skin problems and has immediate and long-term benefits. This substance has been increasingly used in the Western world as a replacement for medication and an effective remedy for many common problems.
What is emu oil?
Emu oil contains different types of triglycerides and fatty acids that are extremely similar to the composition of the human skin. This is what makes it very beneficial. Emu oil has been referred to as a natural wonder because of all the positive effects it has on human health.
It is a hypoallergenic substance, natural moisturizer that is not irritating for neither the skin nor the eyes. It is an anti-inflammatory and a great source of Omega 3, 6, and 9 fats.
While the use of emu oil is increasing worldwide, it is still mostly available in its most purest form without any additives or synthetic material so it is non-toxic, it will not clog pores and it is biodegradable and eco-friendly.
Some testimonies say that they used emu oil to treat extreme cases of eczema and psoriasis, some even say it helped reduce the visibility of stretch marks, scars and anti-aging symptoms such as wrinkles. Furthermore, emu oil has benefited people with Arthritis, chronic muscle injuries and burned and inflamed skin. Among all of its wonders, emu oil is also known for helping reduce hair loss and replenish lost hair.
This is very important information that concerns a large number of people because hair loss affects significantly both women and men. About 40% of men will have visible hair loss by the age of 35 , while 60% of women will suffer hair loss by the age of 65.
Largely as a result of aging, a substance called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) causes hair follicles to shorten the time of their active phases. This causes hair degradation where a patch of growing hair will turn from a thick colored hair into a thin colorless patch that renders the skin more visible.
Most of the hair patches are not lost but are still connected to a supply of blood and can be replenished. With time, the hair will eventually die and fall out.
How is emu oil helpful?
Many people have reported that they noticed serious improvements in their hair growth within only weeks of using emu oil. They say that it has also helped with frontal hair growth, which is known to be much more difficult to reach than hair growth in the crown or the vertex.
A research conducted recently has shown that there are few potential reasons on why emu oil is yielding such great results. One possibility is that emu oil can specifically revive a large percentage of the hair follicles, which increases the likelihood of hair growth.
Other reasons are particularly related to the emu oil’s features. It is an anti-inflammatory agent, which stimulates hair growth. It also have high bendability which means that it mixes oil and water and makes much easier for the skin to absorb it more than it absorbs other natural or pharmaceutical remedies.
Emu oil is non-comedogenic, which means it doesn’t clog pores and cause pimples which is different from other mineral oils and treatments. This is an additional factor that allows the skin to maintain the minerals, which increases the likelihood of promoting hair growth.
Emu oil’s high fat and phosphorus-free composition makes it highly penetrating into the human skin and hence it is very thoroughly absorbed which gets all its nutrients right into the scalp and contribute to producing better results.
Be careful of the emu oil you buy
Now that it has been gaining some popularity, many vendors are now marketing and selling unrefined emu oil or products that are processed using lye and other chemicals. This lessens its benefits and makes it even harmful in some cases.
Make sure to pay attention to what you’re buying as emu products and if they include chemicals or are not refined properly; they would not provide you with the best results. Check with the vendor about potential additives or inquire about the source of the product.
In order to get the best results for hair growth, you should use emu oil three times a day. However, it has also been effective even when used once a day. Apply emu oil on your scalp overnight and shower in the morning. It will give you skin enough time to absorb the mixture and get you the best results.
