What makes corn oil so good for hair care?
- It is first and foremost known for its high concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids, mostly omega-6 (linoleic acid, about 50-70%) and omega-9 (oleic acid, about 20-30%). These fatty acids ensure that processes occurring inside cells of the skin and hair proceed correctly. In other words: they will preserve hair and scalp from premature ageing.
- Corn oil consists of remarkable amount of vitamin E - also called vitamin of youth. Without it hair become matte, brittle and deprived of elasticity.
- Another factor of true relevance and impact on hair condition is presence of phytosterols in corn oil. Phytosterols have a unique ability to activate collagen synthesis, which is the main protein component of skin cells. On top of that, they speed up regeneration of all kind of damages, both to epidermis and hair. Phytosterols in corn oil have additional anti-fungal and antibacterial properties directly responsible for healthy and clean scalp. They leave it clean and dandruff free.
- Corn oil is one of few known to contain also large amount of lecithin. It is irreplaceable in care of excessively dry hair. It moisturises and smoothers hair and above all calm scalp and normalise sebum secretion.
Corn oil is recommended mostly for high porosity hair - very damaged, weak and fine, with disturbed construction of hair cuticles on the surface. In a great way it also takes care of dry, damaged by the sun, straightener or subjected to colourisation hair ends.
