Sesame oil is a vegetable based oil that is often used for cooking, especially for Asian, Chinese, Southeast Asian and South Indian foods. Sesame oil is extracted from the sesame seed flower sesamum. Botanically, the seed itself is known as Sesamun indicum. The oil also has many nutrients and several benefits for your hair.
Because sesame oil is high in antibacterials, it has a much longer shelf life than many other oils and is least likely to become rancid. This oil is great for healing dry and/or damaged hair and will leave your naturally kinky hair softer and much healthier.
