In another study, healthy female participants who took oral supplements with omega-3s, omega-6s, and antioxidants had increased hair diameter and density and decreased telogen percentage.*
While these results show how omega-3s might help when taken as a daily supplement, evidence suggests the healthy fats can also help hydrate hair when used topically. In fact, applying a flaxseed gel to strands is an effective (and popular) way to help lock in moisture–especially for those with wavy and curly hair!
For best results, we recommend utilizing the hydrating and growth-stimulating benefits of omega-3s both internally and externally.*
