Are your locks feeling lacklustre and dull? It could be time to give your hair and scalp a plants-based refresh. These four superstar ingredients should be top of your list.
If your summer hair goals are a shiny, glossy mane that feels as healthy as it looks, it’s time to consider the wonders of plants.
Gentle, plant-based formulas could be just what you need to give your hair a lift to negate the effects of products containing harsh, drying ingredients such as silicones and sulfates.
When it comes to nourishing your hair, these are four hero power plant ingredients:
1. Oat milk
You love it in your lattes, but oak milk is also the gift that keeps on giving for hair.
A natural cocktail of moisturising goodness, it restores freshness and lightness,1 thanks to the protective properties of oat milk extract. Hair has more texture and volume1 in just two minutes.
With proven oil control absorbing properties, this ingredient enables the spacing out of liquid shampoos and helps create style.
3. Aquatic mint
With scalp care the new haircare, products that can help remove the build-up of environmental pollution, and all sorts of impurities without drying or stripping are top of the list.
Aquatic mint, or mentha aquatica, detoxifies and protects from impurities.
This hero plant product is now being incorporated into haircare products as a detox for clean, soft to touch and nourished hair2.
A darling of the wellness world, flaxseed is an excellent source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids and fibre. It is high in lignans – compounds that have antioxidant qualities.
Fibres in flax, called mucilage, have also proven effective in haircare products because of their volumising properties3.
They bond when in contact with water and expand — hello voluminous, radiant hair4!
