Oils are one of the main components of cosmetics that have dermatologic properties, provide great moisturizing and penetrate very well to our skin giving it elasticity, softness and nutrition. Thus, they provide an excellent care to our body thanks to their richness in vitamins and antioxidants that help keeping a healthy skin.
However, not only do oils be beneficial for our skin, but also for the care of our hair, since they repair dry hair and soften its texture with a great finish.
We have already seen the benefits to the skin of our Combo+ serums in previous posts, but we want to show you a different use of our Combo+ serums today: taking care of our hair depending on the oils that each serum has.
The hair is a long and very organized cylinder formed by cells, which are arranged following a very precise, predetermining orientation and compose it in a way that form a rigid structure considering the molecular level, which can provide flexibility, as well as a great mechanical resistance together with its physical and chemical properties (resistance to stretching, elasticity, absorption, and permeability). Among these properties, we find the ones belonging to the surface, since the hair can have electric charge through friction. The charge will depend on two factors: the state of hair surface (if it has its own sebum layer or if it has some layer of cosmetic product) and the degree of humidity. Another aspect to take into account is the hair behaviour in relation to pH, since it has a great importance when we apply cosmetics to our hair. By using oils, a film over the hair is generated, seals the fibre and avoids the reaction of the charges. This leads our hair to become more manipulable and softer without getting frizzy.
Oils protect, moisturize, and repair even most damaged hairs and provide an additional brilliance instantly. Even though our Combos+ have been thought and designed for skin care, their combination of oils can also provide benefits to our hair. Our Combo Regenera+ oil with argan oil, rosehip oil and carrot oil and our Combo Hidra+ serum with olive oil, sweet almond oil and borage oil are ideal for hair care. It is essential to apply them when the ends of your hair are dry or damaged or when the hair is dull. They are also useful if your hair tends to get fizzy, since it is a sign that your hair needs a special moisturizing care.
Oils are applied easily. If your hair needs a lot of moisturizing, the oils should be applied when the hair is wet; if you want more brightness and avoid your hair getting fizzy, you should apply the oils when your hair is dry. You should put two applications over your palm and rub them. In this way, it will better penetrate. They have to be applied from the middle to the ends of your hair. You should not apply them to the hair root because it generates its own oil naturally.
Take your time to take care of yourself, to feel great, to feel Mood!
