Building blocks of great hair

Before we can talk about the benefits of natural oils, we need to talk about the vitamins and minerals that make them so effective. Let’s get down to the molecular level with a simple A to Z.

A. Vitamin A

With its strong antioxidant properties, Vitamin A protects the follicles against free radical production thus helping to influence hair regeneration. It’s found in abundance in liver and dark leafy veggies. It seems Popeye was onto something there.

E. Vitamin E

Vitamin E is the ‘Mr fix-it’ of the minerals. It does so by repairing the hair follicles while reducing inflammation of the scalp. This encourages hair growth. This hard-working vitamin is found in Brazil nuts amongst other foods.

I. Iron

Iron is an important element. Iron carries oxygen to the roots of your hair, allowing for the stimulation of hair growth. It’s found in egg yolks, red meat and lentils. It can also be taken as a supplement.

P. Protein

Hair itself is made up of proteins (or otherwise known as keratin) so it makes sense to strengthen your locks with its own building blocks. Hair is nourished from within if you eat foods that are rich in protein. Alternatively, you can benefit from a protein hair treatment which is applied directly to the hair.

S. Selenium

Selenium, found naturally in foods such as Brazil Nuts, tuna and grains is rich in antioxidants. If dandruff is your pet peeve, then your hero has arrived. When combined with zinc, selenium comes to the rescue where hair loss ensues. This mineral also assists in the correct functioning of the hormones that increase the growth of healthy hair. This is a win in any book.

Z. Zinc

Zinc is important in the development of RNA and DNA which allows for the division of cells for hair that grows healthier and stronger. Its benefits also extend to the prevention of hair loss while making hair more manageable and less dull. It’s found in food such as poultry and cheese.

Now that you know what vitamins and minerals matter most for your hair, let’s give you a breakdown of the three magical oils in the Renew Intense Naturals range.

Not all oils are created equal

Brazil Nut Oil

From South America’s rainforests, the Brazil Nut is the perfect snack and Brazil Nut Oil is the key ingredient for shiny hair. If we were to rate it against other types of nuts, the Brazil Nut would be the queen. Even in its oil form, it contains all the essential minerals. Also, it has the highest selenium among the other type of nuts.

Palm Oil

Not only do these trees provide shade from the hot African sun, but also nutrition for our sun-kissed hair. Their gooey oil encourages cell growth of hair follicles by nourishing your hair from root to tip. Also, while other products may strip your hair of its natural oils, Palm oil restores it.
