FENNEL SEED OIL BENEFITS: THE BEAUTY HACK TO HEALTHY HAIR

posted in: Hair care tips | 0

For many families, Fennel or Foeniculum vulgare is a favorite kitchen staple for the crunchy, sweet flavor it brings to any meal. Apart from the that, none of its parts go to waste: The pale green bulb can be added into a soup or salad; the leaves can enhance the flavor of pasta; while the seeds can be used as spice and made into oil.

From free-radical fighting antioxidants to phytonutrients, Fennel Seeds are loaded with over 80 vitamins and minerals that you wouldn’t get from your average vegetable. This makes it an excellent remedy for many hair and scalp conditions.

Stimulates Hair Growth
Free radicals are detrimental to the hair. Without enough antioxidants in the body, free radicals can cause oxidative stress, which impedes hair growth and causes thinning. Fennel seeds are packed with antioxidants, as well as nutrients like pantothenic acid, iron, molybdenum, copper, folate, iron, and niacin that stimulate hair growth.

Fights Oxidative Stress
Almost 15% of Fennel’s nutritional value is made up of vitamin C, making it a very potent antioxidant. Vitamin C is also a known electron donor, which help prevent oxidative damage caused by imbalance of free radical levels in our body.

Oxidative stress can manifest in a variety of ways, from breakage to hair loss as a result of rapid aging. The only way to counter this is to use products containing vitamin C, like Oway After-Sun Hair Mask. The Fennel extract in this hair mask will help strip the hair and scalp of free radicals after a day in the sun.

Moisturizes the Hair
Many consumers make the mistake of overloading the hair with protein to keep it looking shiny and healthy. But nothing could be further than the truth. Our hair strands have no natural lubrication, so they rely on the oil produced in the roots to keep them looking shiny and nourished. An overabundance of protein can throw off the natural pH balance of the hair and scalp, resulting in hygral fatigue and dry scalp. The antioxidants and antimicrobial properties of Fennel tones the hair and scalp, stripping them of elements that are causing dryness, including protein buildup.

Cleanses the Scalp
According to research, Fennel Seed Oil effectively inhibits the growth of a wide spectrum of bacteria and fungi.1 Due to its acetone, n-butanol, ethanol and ether content, fennel extract is great for treating conditions like dandruff and eczema, and calming irritated scalp. Those with sensitive skin would benefit from using Oway Soothing Remedy Spot Treatment for its healing and moisturizing properties.

Winter Scalp Dryness???

One of the best ways to fight winter dryness, is to shampoo less often. You may also want to try co-washing, (with conditioner only) your hair instead of using shampoo regularly. This method helps hair from being stripped of its nutrients.

If you experience dry itchy scalp, we suggest using a light oil directly onto the scalp prior to a blow dry or air dried hair. This method can also be used during warmer months. Water intake also plays a huge factor in how our hair and scalp responds to seasonal changes.

Oway’s “Glossy Nectar” or “Silk N Glow Serum” are wonderful oils that will not weigh your hair down if applied correctly. Come on into Organic Roots Eco Salon for a complimentary consultation and tutorial!

Are You Allergic to Hair Color?

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Owning an organic, toxin-free salon, many potential clients call to inquire about the products we use, hopeful that they will finally be able to have their hair colored without the itching and burning so many people think they have to endure. While most people who do experience that discomfort aren’t allergic to the products, many people do have an allergy to an ingredient called para-phenylenediamine, commonly known as PPD.

Exposure to PPD can cause coughing, dizziness, headaches, and labored breathing, according to the CDC website. In addition, some people may see skin irritation, eye pain and swelling and blurred vision. Europe, which has more stringent laws than the U.S., has either banned it altogether or regulate the percentage allowed in hair coloring products to no more than six percent.

At Upstairs Hair Affair, all of our color lines are either entirely free of PPD, with one having less than one percent total. We work hard to ensure we use the proper brand on each of our clients. If you suffer excessive itching or burning at the salon you’ve been loyal to, we are always glad to sit down and talk with you about the best option for you. When necessary, we perform a patch test to make sure you can tolerate the product. A patch test is a simple procedure where we dab a tiny amount of color behind your hair then wait 48 hours to see if you have any adverse reactions to the color. So far those we’ve performed this on have been able to come in and get their hair colored without discomfort.

Finally, our products are also ammonia-free, so the burning and itching you may feel while getting your hair colored at traditional salons doesn’t happen here either!
