Pumpkin Seed Oil

Did you know that pumpkin seed oil treatment can revitalize your hair’s current colors? As one of the best natural oils for vibrant hair, it can even add color to unsaturated new hair growth. The pigment properties of pumpkin seed oil treat hair colors by highlighting or toning down shades. Oxidative damage causes color changes in hair. However, pumpkin seed oil offers a range of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that fight oxidative damage to maintain or change hair color.


The most common pigment in pumpkin seeds is lutein. Lutein colors hair, and pumpkin seed oil swells with moisture to enhance the colorant. The pumpkin oil nourishes and strengthens hair, allowing dye to penetrate deeper and keep color longer. It’s important that the pumpkin seed oil is 100 percent pumpkin seed oil with no additives to ensure safety on colored tresses. Consult your hair practitioner.

Cucurbitin: Minimize Hair Loss

Pumpkin seed oil has also been shown to reduce hair loss. Why? Cucurbitin – Cucurbitacin’s are a class of biochemical compounds that some plants – notably the pumpkin produce. It functions as a defense against herbivores. Pumpkin seed oil contains this active ingredient, cucurbitin, which has been shown to block the action of 5-alpha-reductase. The 5-alpha-reductase enzyme converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a hormone that causes hair loss. By blocking the action of 5-alpha-reductase, pumpkin seed oil can help to prevent hair loss.

Pumpkin seed oil is also full of these healhy hair nutrients:

  • zinc
  • magnesium,
  • and omega-3 fatty acids.

Zinc maintains a healthy scalp and promotes hair growth. Magnesium strengthens the hair shaft and prevents breakage. Both (an all 90+), of these minerals are provided in HUmineral Humic/Fulvic Mineral.

One of the Best Natural Oils for Vibrant Hair? Rice Bran Oil

Rice Bran Hair Oil is rich in:

  • amino acids
  • antioxidants which prevent the hair from losing pigment due to oxidative stress
  • essential fatty acids
  • vitamins

It also has multiple benefits for hair care, including:

  • adding shine
  • preventing split ends
  • promoting softer hair
  • strengthening roots
  • averting dandruff

The most notable feature of Rice Bran Oil is its hypoallergenic properties, something that many vegetable oils don’t possess. This makes the oil a great remedy for skin irritations and hypersensitivity. Irritation is a phenomenon caused by oxidative stress, a condition resulting from the imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants. As a hypoallergenic, Rice Bran Oil fights free radicals and bacteria that are causing irritation. And yes, there are free radicals roaming our bodies.

Rice Bran Oil – Delay Premature Greying?

Finding grey hair? It’s OK – it’s normal, but premature grey is an issue today due to many factors of health and lifestyle. Grey hair is usually associated with aging, so people often frown upon it. Contrary to widespread belief, grey hair does not depend solely on age. When your body produces less melanin – the pigment that gives the strands their natural color – that causes a sudden onset of grey hair.

Known for their youthful looks, Asians are often mistaken for being much younger than they are. Why, we ask? Gamma oryzanol or Rice Bran Oil is the answer. Packed with anti-aging emollients and antioxidant properties, this oil has been a part of the Asian skincare regimen for years. But aside from improving the condition of the skin, Rice Bran Oil also offers glorious hair benefits.

Rosemary Oil

Rosemary oil’s anti-inflammatory properties may be beneficial in calming and reducing scalp inflammation. Inflammation can contribute to hair loss conditions like alopecia areata.

Rosemary is one of our favorite natural oils for vibrant hair because it’s known to potentially promote hair growth and improve scalp and hair health. It contains antioxidants that protect the scalp and hair follicles from damage caused by free radicals. It can help with nourishment and locking in the hair’s moisture, and it has properties that improve blood circulation to the scalp, while getting rid of bacteria that clog hair follicles.

Science and personal experience together both strongly suggest that rosemary, amongst other essential oils, does protect against hair loss, particularly in male or female pattern baldness. Researchers discovered that rosemary oil was as effective as minoxidil at stimulating hair growth. It also showed rosemary’s effectiveness on APA. And with rosemary, unlike over-the-counter products, there’s no itchy scalp.
