Parsley is one of the wonder plants which nature has been so kind to offer us. Parsley is a rich source of Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin B12, calcium, iron, beta carotene, riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, zinc and potassium. It is said that parsley contains more Vitamin C than the popular lemons and it is recommended for a plethora of diseases and conditions, starting with bad odor in your mouth and ending with bladder infections, kidney problems and urinary disorders. It is also said to contribute positively in cell restoration, cancer prevention and blood filtering.
Among its multiple uses, parsley is also employed for hair care, hair protection and as treatment for the most popular hair problems. It disinfects the scalp, cleaning it thoroughly and eliminating any source of discomfort, including the annoying dandruff and the embarrassing and highly itchy lice. When used externally (in form of puree applied on the scalp), parsley is a source of nutrients for the hair follicle, which strengthens it and makes the hair look healthier and shinier. When fresh parsley is not available for a puree, parsley oil can be found in stores. Parsley oil preserves most of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients from the fresh plant, so that it can successfully substitute it.
Hair Growth by Purifying Blood
Parsley is a well-known blood purifier, fact which indirectly contributes to hair growth stimulation. A purified blood which nourishes the hair follicle and hair root diminishes hair loss, stimulates hair growth and promotes an overall healthy hair aspect.
Some people take parsley orally (either as juice or in pill form) in order to maximize its effects on hair. Ingesting parsley juice at the same time while applying the puree or oil on the scalp is said to diminish the time in which the effects are seen. An enriched color and a nice luster are further effects of using parsley treatments on the long run.
