Vitamin E is a do-it-all nutrient. It's a fat-soluble antioxidant that helps fight off free radicals, prevents inflammation and blood clots, and could potentially lower the risk of macular degeneration (a condition that inhibits your eye sight). And along with the bevy of preventative benefits you'll get from ingesting it internally, applied topically, vitamin E oil is amazing for your skin, nails, and hair.
In the case of the latter, vitamin E stimulates the growth of capillaries, which encourages blood flow to the scalp, thus helping hair to grow. When worked through your strands, vitamin E oil prevents breakage, split ends, and because of its antioxidative properties, could possibly help prevent grays.
