SAGE, Benefits For Hair, Hair Loss & Side effects

A little background on Sage

Sage, also known as Salvia (which translates as to heal or to save) it is a seriously ancient and praised herb. Sage is similar to the mint family and has been used in religious and spiritual ceremonies for thousands of years. It is native to Asia and the Mediterranean area. Some refer to Sage as the healer, a cleansing herb both for energetic and bacterial, symbol of wisdom and higher consciousness. The herb is utilized in many ways, from teas to incense, to essential oils. The plant itself is very robust and can grow both indoors and outdoors. So what are the benefits for your scalp and hair besides granting wisdom and clarity? 


Sage benefits your scalp and hair

As you may have already guessed, sage can work wonders on the hair and scalp. Sage leaf and oil are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins A, B and C, and minerals such as calcium and potassium. The sage works to remove bacteria from the scalp but also provides the scalp and hair follicles with the nutrients it needs to live a healthy and happy lifestyle, AKA promoting healthy hair growth. Sage is especially wonderful for curly and kinky hair because it helps the hair retain moisture, no matter how tight the curls.  


Some benefits for hair:

Hair loss

One of the benefits that sage is known for and has been used since ancient times. With its high content of beta-sitosterol, which is a 5-alpha reductase compound, sage has been proven to be effective in the treatment of one of the most common types of baldness, male pattern baldness.

For restoring shine to hair

One of the best ways to impart a healthy glow to your hair is by treating it with sage tea. Sage tea is pretty easy to prepare and can help to add shine to your hair. Additionally, if you are experiencing dandruff, sage tea can help control and treat it.

Hair Growth

Along with controlling hair loss, sage can aid in regenerating new hair follicles. Sage can help improve blood circulation to the scalp, which in turn helps to nourish the hair follicles. Using sage regularly can help improve the overall quality of your hair and rejuvenate dry or thinning hair.

Darkens Hair

If you are looking for a way to maintain your natural hair colour and combat the problem of premature greying, use sage as an after-cleanse rinse. Sage acts as a natural dye and can help you get darker hair.
