A 2007 article in the "Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry" reported that rice bran oil possesses important antioxidants and other health-promoting properties. You can eat food sources rich in rice bran oil, or apply the oil topically to improve dry, brittle and aging hair.
Essential Fatty Acids
Rice bran oil has a healthy fatty acid profile. According to Roberta Larson, author of "The American Dietetic Association: Complete Food & Nutrition Guide," rice bran oil contains four times the amount of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids than other vegetable oils. Omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids prevent the premature aging of skin and hair. This is particularly important for the prevention of hair loss and premature greying of hair.
Rice bran oil contains significant levels of tocotrienols, which are part of the vitamin E family. Weather conditions and regular use of hot styling tools can cause significant damage to hair. Hair ends may break or split apart. Hair becomes frizzy and hard to manage or style. The vitamin E component in rice bran oil can correct some of these problems associated with dry, damaged hair. It can seal dry ends and prevent hair loss from breakage. Some hair-styling products contain rice bran oil. These products help protect hair from the high-temperature styling tools. The oil also serves as a lubricant so hot hair appliances slide over the hair shaft without causing further damage.
Rice bran oil contains inositol, a carbohydrate that promotes healthy hair. It keeps hair follicles healthy at the cellular level. Inositol is particularly helpful in those who are trying to grow out their hair. Hair grows out healthy and can stay healthy when you consume rice brain oil or use hair products containing rice bran oil.
The oryzanol in rice bran oil blocks ultraviolet rays. Ultraviolet rays can damage hair, just like skin. The sun's rays can oxidize hair and cause dryness and color damage. Oilseeds International Ltd., an oilseed service organization, says that is why sunblock products may contain rice bran oil. It is also why it is used in other products such as shampoos, hair conditioners and sunscreens.
