Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juicecontains natural conditioners that make hair soft, healthy, and strong. Aloe contains amino acids, which can penetrate and nourish the hair, while also depositing a protective film on the hair that helps to retain moisture, body, shine and smoothness. Sulfur molecules found in cysteine bind to sulfur molecules in keratin (primary protein found in hair), creating disulfide bonds which strengthen and support the quality of the hair.
Used for conditioning, amodimethicone is a light silicone used in hair conditioners that makes it easier for a comb to glide through the hair. Because of its chemical compound, this mixture tends not to build up in the hair with repeated use.
Behentrimonium methosulfate is a very mild, yet effective ingredient known for its de-tangling properties. Because this ingredient directly deposits onto the hair follicle to smooth out the cuticles, it’s highly regarded for its conditioning abilities.
Argan oil is oil derived from the seeds of the fruit of the Moroccan Argan tree. Argan oil is non-greasy and non-oily and has become popular as a hair treatment. It is exceptionally rich in natural tocopherols, lipids and fatty acids, carotenes, and squalene. These components provide nutrients to the hair and also play a role in argan oil’s high antioxidant capabilities. Vitamin E, a fat soluble vitamin, effectively fights free radicals, thereby helping to improve overall hair strength. It also accumulates in the skin and forms a barrier against moisture evaporation. Squalene is a nutrient rich oil that, like vitamin E, provides antioxidant protection for the skin. Additionally, squalene is a component of sebum, the skin’s natural moisturizer. Sebaceous glands, which are located near and connected to hair follicles, secrete sebum, an oily substance which keeps skin and hair from becoming dry and brittle. It has been shown to penetrate the hair shaft and almost instantly increase nourishment.
