While these were the 9 natural oils that Satthwa is a blend of, there are some other nutrients that you can find in this oil –

Iron
As explained before, just like any other part of our body, our hair requires food too. Food, that is nutrients for satisfactory nourishment of the scalp. Iron is a major one of them. Iron is responsible for metabolization of proteins and the production of hemoglobin, enzymes, and red blood cells (RBCs).

– It increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the scalp, thus improving the hair texture and reducing dullness.
– Iron deficiency is the major reason for hair loss. When there is not enough iron present in the body, less hemoglobin is produced. Since hemoglobin is responsible for carrying oxygen for the growth and repair of cells in our body, it also affects the cells that stimulate hair growth. Thus, iron in your oil promotes hair growth.

Calcium
Calcium is the much required mineral in our body since it has some major roles to play. It helps the brain to connect with the body, helps relax our nerves, formation of bones, mineralization of teeth, regulation of permeability of cell membranes, and strengthening the immune system.

What exactly is Dandruff? What causes it and why so many are so frequently affected by it?

Distressing Dandruff

Skin cells die and a fairly small amount of flaking is normal, however over excessive shedding of dead skins cells from the scalp is categorised as dandruff which follows redness and irritation. Seasonal changes effects the severity of dandruff which does get worse during winters. Keratinocyte is the predominant cell in the outmost layer of the skin, which makes up for 90% of cells in that layer, the primary function of Keratinocytes is to form a barrier against bacteria, fungi, viruses, heat, UV radiation and dehydration.

They play a major role in the generation of immunological reactions during dandruff formation. Studies show that perhaps the reason for dandruff are three factors, Skin oil referred as sebaceous secretions, metabolic by products or skin micro – organism (Malassezia yeasts, which is kind of fungi naturally found on skin surfaces of humans and animals) Dry skin, and Allergy sensitivity. So, how does one get affected by these, even when you think you have been following a normal hair care hair routine?

The primary causes that triggers dandruff are:

Seborrheic Dermatitis (oily skin) – A most common cause for dandruff, it affects the scalp and areas of the body which are rich in oil glands. The affected area turns red and the greasy skin is covered with flaky white or yellow scales.

  • Causes – Theories suggests that the cause of this is a weakened immune system and the lack of specific nutrients like zinc, seasonal changes, stress and in some cases due to issues with the nervous system.

  • Malassezia – This fungus thrives on the scalp and irritates it causing more skin cells to grow which die and fall away. The aggravated skin by metabolites of the yeast is majorly the cause of dermatitis.

  • Causes – Humidity, sweating and oily skin.

  • Dry Skin – Dry skin causes small scaly flakes, however redness or inflammation is very unlikely.

  • Cause – Hormonal changes, stress, lack of nutrients such as fatty acids and Vitamin B, seasonal changes and even puberty.
