How Camphor Can Boost Your Hair Growth

History itself is a key witness to the power of Ayurveda. Various inscriptions, written texts and symbols represent a rich heritage of ayurvedic medicine and its development throughout the passage of time. Some of these ayurvedic remedies have been passed down from generation to generation. One such multifaceted element, whose benefits extend to numerous parts of the body, is camphor or kapur. Camphor exhibits healing properties to the physical as well as mental dynamic and its benevolent nature stretches over the growth of your hair too. Let’s discuss in detail how camphor can improve your hair growth. 

Hair loss can be an aftermath of dry scalp, dandruff, tangled hair or split ends. When these problems are not rectified, the health of your hair and its growth reclines. But camphor is your own home remedy that can cure these problems and promote hair growth.   

Camphor for dandruff

Equipped with anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, camphor can treat dandruff etched on your scalp and prevent fungal infections like Malassezia yeast proliferation or scalp ringworm. It helps reduce kapha and pitta doshas, responsible for an increase in dandruff, reduces inflammation and moisturizes your scalp, resulting in effective hair growth.  

Camphor for bacterial infections 

Bacterial infections on the scalp include Scalp Folliculitis, which transpires when the naturally-occurring Staphylococcus Aureus bacterium seeps into your scalp pores through a hair follicle or an open wound. Applying camphor can increase the chances of preventing such infections on your scalp.  

Camphor for hair loss

Camphor oil possesses properties that help avoid hair loss by strengthening your hair follicles. Camphor is a soothing agent that reduces stress and improves blood circulation to your hair, both of which contribute to hair growth and terminate hair loss.
