Black Seed Oil for Hair: What It Is and How to Use It
If you’re looking for a magic oil that’ll grow your hair overnight, you’ve probably come across some pretty convincing testimonials of black seed oil (aka Nigella sativa, aka black cumin).

But because you can’t believe everything you read on the internet (I’ve definitely made that mistake once or twice and totally paid the price), I turned to board-certified dermatologist Dhaval G. Bhanusali, MD, to figure out what black seed oil can really do for your hair (and, you know, what it can’t).
Ahead, everything you need to know about using black seed oil for hair, straight from an expert.
