Let the earth boost your length - the top 3 natural ingredients for shiny, healthy hair with Organik Botanik.
Long, strong locks don’t grow overnight! Almost all of us at one point in our lives have tried to grow our hair out, dreaming of Rapunzel-like strands that swish behind our shoulders. But as you know, hair that long takes time. Rather than focusing on hair that grows faster at the root of each strand, you want to focus on looking after the strands you already have so they’re healthy and strong, not prone to breakage - which shortens your hair!
There are a few key ingredients derived from mother earth that are revered with a cult-like status for encouraging healthy, strong and luscious strands:
Hemp Seed Oil
This little seed is starting to garner a rather big name for itself and there is good reason for it! Hemp seeds are packed full of essential fatty acids like Omega 3, 6 and 9, making hemp seed oil hella moisturising both for your hair and scalp.
The seed even has non-comedogenic properties which means it’s not going to block the pores on your head. Being non-comedogenic is a really important factor because, well you guessed it, your hair grows out of those pores!
The essential fatty acids found in hemp seed oil have a hydrophilic end - a science-y word that means watering loving - that aids in moisture retention, making hemp seed oil a perfect product for coarse, curly or dry hair.
It’s no secret that coconut oil is one of the most epic natural hair treatments. But why? Well firstly, because of its insanely high Vitamin E content which makes it extremely nourishing. The result is strong, smooth locks!
Its genetic composition allows coconut oil to penetrate deeply into the hair shaft. This ability makes it the perfect ingredient to give dry and brittle hair the moisture it needs to become lush.
The benefits are not limited to the hair shaft; not only do the vitamins and essential fatty acids found in coconut oil help to nourish the scalp, but they also assist to remove sebum build-up from hair follicles, making sure those pores aren't blocked and enabling hair to grow freely.
Manuka Honey is a highly sought after ingredient due to its incredible healing properties and is a type of honey only found in New Zealand. There is little Manuka honey cannot do; it’s a soother of inflammation, the queen of moisture and is full of antioxidants.
When it comes to your hair, it’s best quality is that it attracts and retains moisture like nothing else! That means that it traps and seals moisture in your hair and doesn’t let it go.
This wonder ingredient is also a natural antibacterial, helping to balance the normal levels of bacteria on the skin, and by extension, the scalp, making Manuka Honey the perfect ingredient for people with scalp concerns.
