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!

SKINNY & CO. COCONUT OIL IS THE BEST ON THE MARKET

Skinny & Co. is a cruelty-free Leaping Bunny certified company that prides ourselves in our utilization of innovative, wild harvested, single origin coconut oil. Our patented Nutralock System crafts the coconut oil under 97 degrees F, which leaves all of the raw nutrients intact. This process results in coconut oil with higher levels of medium chain fatty acids and allows the body to absorb the oil much easier, enhancing its effectiveness.

Our prime ingredient in all of our products is our patented high-quality coconut oil. The line may be considered minimal, but every product is thoughtfully crafted and effective. The core collection consists of coconut oil, oil pulling mouth wash, whipped body butter, facial oil, lip balm, shampoo and soap bars, and sugar scrub. The body butter contains 100% raw coconut oil, organic almond oil, and a blend of essential oils. The butter melts and absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving behind super soft, pampered skin with a light coconut/minty scent. Using this product feels quite luxurious. The soap is also superior to other similar products. The coconut oil base is very moisturizing and also lathers into a rich foam. There are a variety of soap scents including lemongrass, peppermint, cinnamon, and green tea. The coffee fragrance contains actual coffee bean granules, which create a light exfoliant.

We are #1 with coconut oil lovers and consumers that prefer minimal ingredients, and individuals looking for personal care products that are super moisturizing and do not leave the skin dry.

Our story is one that has evolved from a passionate desire to provide a completely new level of performance to the professional hair care industry through radical reinvention and an unwavering commitment to sustainability.

As we set out to understand the spectrum of today’s product options, we quickly realized that the marketplace has been singing the same tune for a very long time. Whether through emulated ingredients, borrowed technologies or dated formulation structures, the ultimate result has been steady repetition of the status quo. Similar products, similar performance, similar results.

In an industry that demands innovation, we recognized a fundamental need for truly new technology, so we got to work. The rest is history!
At flow™, we have meticulously crafted our formulations from the inside, out. We’ve harnessed performance at the source by revolutionizing hair care’s most important ingredient first…WATER.

By starting with the purist, most crystalline foundation possible, we have developed hair care’s very first dynamic technology system called
H5 ARCHITECTURE™. This customizable system strategically delivers the maximum benefit potential of every ingredient we use, directly to the hair. Instantly, weightlessly, and with unrivaled intensity.

The result is a complete line of sustainably manufactured professional hair care products that provide a new and liberated sense of technical performance.

The Evolution of Organic Hair Care

posted in: Organic Hair Care | 0

The natural & organic revolution is well under way, but some industries are slow to catch up. Most women don’t think twice about carving out the time for our daily skin care regimen to erase or stave off imperfections. However, when it comes to our hair, we often expect gorgeous locks with minimal effort using lackluster products. Women have achieved natural, healthy, and gorgeous hair without the chemicals for hundreds of years! Here’s a peek at how they did it, then and now.

The History

Thanks to popular recent demand, organic hair care is in the midst of a renaissance. Brands are channeling ancient remedies to satisfy thoughtful consumers.

The original natural solutions can be traced to India as early as the 1500s, where soapberry pulps and hibiscus flowers were combined to cleanse the hair. Once colonial traders discovered the practice, it spread throughout England and soon all over Europe.

Women in ancient Greece even used olive oil to condition their hair – a practice we still use today!

Modern Organic Solutions

Unhealthy additives like artificial colorants & fragrance ingredients are found in most of today’s conventional hair care. These nasties have been linked to issues like allergies, headaches, and even respiratory issues. The worst part, even the most dedicated green gal has turned to conventional products to get the hair she craves.

The fact is, the vast majority of natural and organic hair care under-delivered until recently. Clean ingredients should never get in the way of performance! Products can now be high performance and nontoxic:

  • If you have damaged hair, look for a protein complex
  • If you have coarse or natural texture, opt for oils that won’t weigh hair down
  • If you need volume, try panthenol-rich formulas

So many of us now opt for organic foods, hair care, and even fabrics. It’s time to switch over from a traditional salon to organic! At Organic Roots Eco Salon, we refuse to subject our clientele to the harsh chemicals found in most salons.

 

A few products we LOVE:

 

  • Flow
    • Comprised of 5 unique technologies, FLow’s H5 ARCHITECTURE™ is designed to deliver essential nutrients, proteins and emollients to the hair and scalp with weightless and unrivaled intensity. It will change your hair as you know it!
  • Organic Way (Oway)
    • Oway is the world’s first professional organic hair color, care and styling line with biodynamic, organic and fair trade ingredients. Their green chemists hand select the highest quality active botanicals and pure essential oils to achieve the professional results you expect without the use of common salon toxins.
  • Skinny and Company
    • Skinny and Company makes products using wild coconuts exclusively harvested in the jungles of Vietnam. Their coconuts are hand-picked and packed with raw nutrients. We especially love their Skinny Shampoo Bars; they deliver intense hydration without creating excess oils in your hair.

 

It’s time to join the natural & organic revolution! Treat your hair like your skincare and develop a regimen that’s good to you – from cut to daily care.

Save Your Hair, Go Organic!

Taking care of yourself and the planet should be top priority in your day to day routines. Understanding what’s in the products we use on, and in our bodies is a great first step to living a healthy and toxin-free life. Living in a world where bottles are filled with unknown chemicals and potentially harmful substances can be intimidating! Thankfully, going organic is a great way to protect ourselves from toxic products while helping protect the earth, and in turn having the healthiest hair and skin possible.

 

Non-organic hair routines often include shampoos, conditioners & other products that are filled with harmful ingredients. Many non-organic shampoos include preservatives, sulfates, or other harsh detergents which unnecessarily strip the hair of natural oils, and vital nutrients. Non-organic shampoos are often accompanied by silicone-based conditioners which temporarily return softness to the hair and can also easily cause build up. When your hair is stripped of its natural and vital oils, hair tends to over produce oils to compensate for its needs, resulting in greasy hair (yuck!). This cycle is ongoing, which never improves the condition of your locks, and instead leaves you with dull and lifeless tresses; along with a volatile hair routine.

 

Using organic products can give you the healthy, strong, and shiny hair you want! Organic products are free of additives & preservatives, and provide vital nutrients to the hair and scalp, promoting elasticity, strength and vibrancy. Understanding the ingredients in your hair products proves to be beneficial when trying to address issues like dull hair, dandruff, skin sensitivities, and many other hair and skin concerns. Products with fewer ingredients can successfully target your hair needs, but can also protect you from harsh detergents, additives, and fillers in non-organic haircare products.

 

An organic hair routine protects your body from abrasive chemicals, and protects the earth from detrimental pollution. You can still have fab hair while committing to an organic haircare routine! At Organic Roots Eco Salon we pride ourselves on delivering our customers the best services, using the best organic products to ensure both you and our Earth are well taken care of. See you soon 🙂
