Patients experiencing hair loss, in one clinical study, were given ginger for hair growth experimentation. The patients were each given ginger powder, applied daily through the two-month duration of the experiment.
The benefits of ginger for hair growth are primarily concentrated in what it can do for your scalp. In some cases of hair loss, the hair follicles are undergoing stress due to the oxidative reactions occurring in them. This is a blood-flow problem, mostly. Once the hair follicles have improved blood flow and antioxidants reach them from the scalp, hair loss can be routed and stopped. The antioxidants primarily provided by the ginger for hair growth, are essential in keeping hair follicles healthy and productive.
