Well, we've got a couple of ideas that may help. In today's article, we've listed down 5 hair product ingredients you should try!
I know what you're thinking: who puts rosemary in their hair? Is it reserved for spicing up various dishes?
Surprisingly (or maybe not so surprisingly), Rosemary can be really beneficial for the hair. It can help stimulate hair growth, prevent early hair loss, slow down greying hair, and keep the scalp free from dandruff.
You can easily make your own Rosemary Leave-In Conditioner just by mixing rosemary leaves or essential oil , water, and tea infuser in a spray bottle. Simply add the three ingredients together in a pot and boil it before putting it in the bottle.
Jojoba oil is an extract that comes from the jojoba plant, an endemic shrub in the Southwestern area of the United States.
It offers a whole slew of benefits from the hair, which is why it's no surprise that this ingredient is being used in plenty of commercial hair products. Jojoba oil can not only repair damaged ends, but it can also be used to balance the oil production happening on your scalp.
This effectively reduces oily hair and provides your hair with much-needed moisture and shine.
Avocado was already an all-around superfood, to begin with, but did you know that you can use it to improve your crowning glory's condition too?
It contains plenty of vitamin B and E which can help make your hair look healthier than ever. Thanks to its high levels of fat, avocado oil also has the ability to retain your hair's moisture, therefore making it softer and shinier. It even helps you avoid further damage in the future by strengthening your strands' bonds!
Castor Seed Oil
Castor seed oil didn't use to be a common ingredient when it comes to hair products, but for the last few years, it's been making waves in the hair community for its amazing properties.
For one, it has anti-fungal properties, which means your scalp will remain clean with your pores unclogged. Many people have also reported seeing great hair growth while using castor oil.
If you want to try it yourself, you can do a 'patch' test by applying it on your temple area first. If it does work, you'll see your hair in that area get thicker than the previous day. However, if it still doesn't work, better luck next time.
Vegetable glycerin is often found in natural hair products. This hair product ingredient is good at binding moisture to the shafts and absorbing humidity from the hair.
Not to mention, vegetable glycerin can actually coat your entire shaft and protect it from possible damages. By doing so, it's making your hair a lot less prone to breakages.
