We’re all looking for ways to incorporate more natural and organic products in our beauty routines. Here are the best one hundred percent natural ingredients that offer proven results in hair care, so that you’re in the know next time you’re looking to replenish your hair beauty essentials.
A wholesome and highly nourishing component, almond oil is rich in fatty acids and magnesium, an essential mineral for overall hair health. Almond oil is also known to
improve the strength and texture of hair. Many professional hair care brands include almond oil in their products to bring back elasticity to curly or wavy hair. For instance, moisturizing Love shampoo from Davines gently cleanses the hair, making it soft and manageable while enhancing its volume and giving it more shine.
Ah, yes. Who doesn’t love avocado anything! With its very high skin penetration and rapid absorption, avocado oil is one of the darlings of the cosmetic world. High in monounsaturated fats and vitamin E, it’s a fantastic ingredient in leave-in conditioners, providing softness and amazing shine to hair, particularly if it’s dry or damaged.
Most oils are great emollients to create dazzling shine on hair, but coconut oil goes one step further by penetrating hair at its deepest, without the aid of nanotechnology (which is basically making the size of active ingredients incredibly tiny so they can easily get into the hair shaft), in order to protect your hair from over-brushing and potentially damaging hot tools.
Not only does olive oil have many uses in the kitchen, it’s also a star ingredient for hair care! According to experts, it is very similar in nature to scalp and hair oils, and helps replenish the oils that are missing in dry, damaged hair. To help condition ultra-dry and breaking hair, look for shampoos, conditioners and masks that are formulated with rich olive oil.
You’ve probably heard of argan oil that is traditionally used in Morocco as a hair treatment. Roucou is also high on the list of exotic, highly rich oils which have incredible antioxidants and protective properties. It also boasts antibacterial and antiseptic qualities, which is great news for those who have scalp issues. Some brands, such as Davines, include roucou in some of their products such as Oi All in One Milk, a leave-in spray that softens, detangles, controls frizz and protects the hair from heat.
