Yes, we are now talking about this much-needed topic about the use of the sandalwood oil for hair growth. Good hair adds to your personality, and is an indispensable part of it, making you look attractive. We are a part of society, expected to follow the societal norms and to go bald is a let down these days. Whether we like it or not, people judge us according to our looks.

Males have a particular concern about the baldness because male pattern hair loss that we call as androgenic alopecia is a very troublesome issue. It affects the vast majority of the male population and can occur in any age group.
Androgenic alopecia is a genetically inherited condition, i.e. if your father or grandfather had it, it is likely that you also have ṭhe chances of having it. Although it's not a life-threatening condition, it hurts self-esteem, plus it's associated with numerous mental health issues.

When we talk about sandalwood oil or other aromatic oils, it is imperative to speak about the research-based conclusions. Conducted research regarding the same also exists. Research revealed that when exposed to hair follicles, sandalwood oil promotes hair growth. Let me make it easier to understand.

We all have various smell receptors all over the body. Similarly, the human scalp also has smell receptors in good numbers. There have been many laboratory studies which made multiple extracts of aromatic oils. Scientists call the sandalwood extract as 'sanadalore'. When exposed to the scalp, its smell receptors respond and this, in turn, leads to increased keratin production.

Keratin is an essential component of our hair strands. Keratin is a part of a connective tissue further made of collagen. Collagen is also responsible for the strengthening of the bones and is a component of blood as well. It gives strength to the hair and makes it strong, so in this way sandalwood oil or other aromatic oils can promote keratin production and can increase the strength of hair as well.
