Discover in this article the benefits of olive oil and honey on your hair as well as different tips to integrate them in your beauty routine!
The benefits of honey on your hair
First of all, honey is a particularly moisturizing ingredient. It is a humectant: it is able to absorb moisture from the air and thus helps moisturize your hair and scalp. By using honey regularly, your hair will regain its natural suppleness, will no longer break and will be deeply hydrated.
In addition, honey is very rich in vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids and can help stimulate hair growth. Indeed, the antioxidants will strengthen the hair follicles which will strengthen your hair and therefore, minimize the risks of breakage. Dormant follicles will also be stimulated which will help you to get thicker, stronger and healthier hair.
Finally, this natural ingredient soothes and protects your hair, giving it a natural softness. It is an emollient composed of sweet enzymes known to bring shine and brilliance to your hair. Using honey is a way to protect your hair on a daily basis while making it silkier, softer and shinier!
Olive oil: a natural ingredient ideal for the care of your hair
Regularly recommended for hair care, olive oil has many benefits for your hair. First of all, massaging the scalp with olive oil helps accelerate hair growth by activating the blood microcirculation. The stimulation of the latter will allow to nourish the hair follicle which will lead to the creation of keratin which composes the hair. Moreover, olive oil will nourish the scalp in depth and protect it from external aggressions thanks to its moisturizing and nourishing virtues.
Rich in polyphenols, olive oil has a great antioxidant power. Its use allows to moisturize your hair in depth while preventing the capillary dryness. Olive oil acts as an excellent moisturizer ideal for frizzy, curly, dry, damaged or brittle hair. Your hair must be treated with the utmost care and olive oil will allow to sublimate, moisturize and revitalize it while taming frizz!
Olive oil also has excellent anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties: it has a soothing effect on the scalp. Its use is a way to reduce itching, fight dandruff, treat dryness of the scalp or unclog clogged follicles responsible for hair loss.
