Though greying of hair is a sign of ageing, but these grey strands may come at any age. The pollution, stress, harsh chemicals, poor hair care and excessive styling make the hair go grey. Ayurveda recommends massaging the scalp on a regular basis with herbal kalonji oil as it is very effective in preventing premature greying because of the linoleic acid present in it.
Kalonji is a blessed with 8 of the 9 essential amino acids as well as many vitamins and vital minerals like magnesium, zinc, iron, and potassium. Because of its high nutrient content and antioxidant power, kalonji oil can help to strengthen the hair.
