Jojoba is a type of shrub native to Southwestern North America. This shrub is cultivated to produce jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is a type of liquid wax ester extracted from the nut of the jojoba plant. The oil is often used raw or mixed with other ingredients to keep hair shiny, smooth and healthy! And if you’re wondering how your tresses will benefit from this wonder oil, read on to find out:
Jojoba oil is naturally rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins that promote strong, healthy hair! The oil is teeming with vitamin B, vitamin E, copper, zinc, and chromium. All these nutrients work together to repair hair damage, protect from free radical stress and restore shine. Jojoba oil-enriched shampoos are a great way to give the tresses a boost of nutrients! But for those with severely damaged and dry hair, we recommend massaging raw jojoba oil on the scalp.
Is your hair dry, coarse and prone to breakage? Are your tresses coarse, brittle and vulnerable to split ends? Sounds like you have severely damaged hair. The hair is often exposed to environmental pollutants that break down the hair follicles. The harsh rays of the sun also strip the hair of moisture. Styling products, chemical treatments, and styling tools cause damage to the tresses too!
Applying jojoba oil at least twice per week helps restore shine and boost moisture to the hair. The nutrients in jojoba oil also repair damage and reverse the effects of UVA/UVB rays. Because the oil is light and easily absorbed, it will not weigh the hair down nor cause grimy residues.
Boost Scalp Health
The beneficial fats coupled by nutrients in jojoba oil helps improve scalp health! Using jojoba oil as a weekly hot oil treatment reduces scalp dryness, irritation, and dandruff. The oil helps rebalance the oil production of the scalp to reduce dryness without making hair look greasy. With regular use, jojoba oil will reduce excess sebum in the scalp that weighs the hair down.
To use jojoba oil as a hot oil treatment, warm about a tablespoon of jojoba oil. Apply directly on dry hair and scalp. Wear a shower cap and leave on for at least 30 minutes. Rinse the hair with a mild shampoo and towel dry your hair.
Add Volume and Shine
Did you know that jojoba oil is an excellent remedy for thinning hair? This oil adds body to dry, limp hair and breathes life back to flat, lackluster tresses! Jojoba oil thickens every hair strand while stimulating hair re-growth. The oil coats every hair strand, strengthening it from the roots. The result? Thicker, silky hair with lots of body!
Conditions the Hair
Does every day styling leave your hair dry, frizzy, and rough? Just apply a couple of drops of jojoba oil on the length of your hair to revitalize the tresses! Jojoba oil will tame frizz, boost shine and promote repair. It will reduce dryness especially around the hair tips, which are prone to split-ends.
To use jojoba oil as a conditioner, just apply a few drops on wet hair after shampooing. Work the oil on the scalps and over problematic areas of the hair. Leave the oil on for at least 5 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
