If you are the type who likes switching up hair colors – this read is for you! Here, Beauty Press shares a quick guide to essential and blending oils that will help you maintain the shine and strength in your hair, all year round.
In order for the hair to grow strong and thick number one step should be taking care of the scalp of the head. Almond oil is non-greasy, easy to apply and it is a great way to hydrate the scalp and prevent flaking or dry skin around the roots of the hair. It brings the moisture back and revitalizes the hair, while serving as a conditioner.
In an article by Healthline: “almonds have been valued in many ancient cultures for their healing and health properties, including high levels of protein, omega-9 fatty acids, and vitamin E. These properties suggest that almond oil can improve the shine and strength of your hair. Sweet almond oil is the oil most commonly sold and recommended for use as a hair product.”
The macadamia nut which the oils are derived from, is rich in fatty acids, proteins and minerals. Your hair and skin can greatly benefit from oils containing macadamia extract. The antioxidants in the oil help moisturize and soothe the skin, with an added anti-aging effect. The rich fatty acidic content of the macadamia oil will make your hair feel significantly thicker, while strengthening the hair follicles and reducing hair loss.
According to Healthline, macadamia oil can smoothen hair. “The emollient qualities of macadamia oil can help smooth hair, giving it a shinier appearance. Anecdotally, hair that’s treated daily with macadamia oil may hold its sheen and become glossier over time,” – excerpt from a Healthline article.
Yes, sunflower may be commonly used in the kitchen, but the important natural ingredients in it make it a vital part of one’s hair care routine. Why? Because it has a light texture, it’s easy to mix with other oils and it stimulates hair growth. Healthy hair also relies on Omega 9 which can be found particularly in the sunflower oil, and its effect is to reduce hair breakage. Sunflower oils are especially beneficial to eliminate the frizz and bring back the shine and softness in your hair.
