Recently, we are finding apple cider vinegar in many natural skin and hair care recipes for different purposes. In skincare, apple cider vinegar is famous for its cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating benefits. In haircare, apple cider vinegar is well-known to promote the scalp's health in many ways. Since it is an incredibly healthy ingredient, apple cider ingredient is often used as the main ingredient in many personal care products. Apple cider vinegar is the main constituent in Botanic Hearth Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo and Conditioner set to provide its many benefits to your daily hair care routine. But how does it enhance the scalp's health? Let us explain that to you:
What Are the Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for Hair?
Apple cider is great for our hair as it is known to balance skin's pH level, strengthen hair, enhance shine, and cleanse off excess oils. It does not contain any harsh chemicals that dry out the skin and can cause redness and irritations. Moreover, apple cider vinegar is gentle on the skin and is a healthy alternative to chemical-based clarifying shampoos. In fact, our skin's normal pH is 5, any scale above or below it weakens the skin's health (including the skin on our scalp), making it prone to damaging effects of chemicals and pollutants. Apple cider vinegar’s hydrating properties improve the scalp's health and support stronger and healthier hair. Besides, due to its exfoliating properties, apple cider vinegar draws out excess oils, dirt buildup, and the scalp's impurities, leaving it looking glossier, silkier, and fuller. That's why apple cider vinegar has replaced abrasive chemicals as clarifying ingredients in many shampoos. Now that we know apple cider vinegar's benefits for hair, let me explain how shea butter is good for hair.
What Is Shea Butter and How Does It Promote Hair's Health?
Shea butter is obtained from the nuts of the shea tree. It contains vitamins A, E, and F, healthy fatty acids, triglycerides, and cetyl esters. It has moisturizing, soothing, nourishing, cleansing, and antioxidant properties. It soothes the dry, irritated, itchy, and troubled scalp and is known to promote hair's shine, thickness and volume. Vitamins A, E, and F have antioxidant properties that help protect the hair from harmful environmental stressors and keep the scalp healthy and clean. In addition, shea butter provides moisturization to the scalp, soothing redness, and itchiness for healthier and fuller-looking hair. Furthermore, shea butter promotes moisture retention on the scalp and calms rough and frizzy hair. Its exceptional nourishing benefits for hair have inspired us to use it as a main ingredient in our Shea Butter Conditioner.
The other main constituents of Botanic Hearth Apple Cider Vinegar and Shea Butter Conditioner are argan oil, coconut oil, keratin, and soybean proteins.
Here we have explained how this perfect shampoo and conditioner set makes an excellent choice for hair care routine:
This amazing oil holds the title of "Liquid Gold" in the world of oils. It has oleic, palmitic, linoleic, stearic, and linolenic acids. These fatty acids contribute to argan oils' moisturizing, hydrating, soothing, cleansing, and balancing properties. It calms rough and dry hair, leaving it feeling soft, smooth, and manageable. Its nourishing properties enhance the scalp's health, promoting the shine and strength of hair. Also, argan oil moisturizes the hair without leaving a sticky and oily feeling; it penetrates the scalp and cleanses off the buildup of impurities. Furthermore, it soothes inflammation, redness, and itchiness and conditions the hair, making the styling and combing easier.
Coconut oil is probably the most famous carrier oil around the world. It would be a surprising chance if anyone of you has never heard of coconut oil. It is safe to say; its vast popularity is well deserved. Coconut oil is best known for boosting the scalp's health and promoting hair growth. Its main constituents are lauric, capric, caprylic, linoleic, oleic acids, and polyphenols. These compounds have antioxidant, moisturizing, calming, and emollient properties. Coconut oil hydrates, nourishes, soothes, and detoxifies the scalp. Moreover, coconut oil is known to protect the hair against UV rays, free radicals, and pollutants. In addition, it calms dryness and comforts a troubled scalp.
Keratin protein is our body's natural protein that makes up our nails, hair, and skin. Its formation in our body becomes less as we get older. Because it is a protective protein that covers the shaft and cuticle of the hair, keratin deficiency can lead to cause hair loss and thinning. Other factors that can affect keratin production include the use of chemical-based hair care products, UV rays, free radicals, and poor dietary preferences. Its routine topical use on hair is known to rejuvenate and revitalize hair and improve the scalp's health.
Soybeans are protein-rich food popularly used in vegetarian diets to compensate for protein deficiencies. Soybeans also contain vitamins, amino acids, and minerals. It is known to boost collagen production, which produces a particular amino acid named proline. Proline is one of the primary amino acids involved in building keratin protein. Moreover, soybeans contain vitamins that nourish the scalp and protect the hair against environmental aggressors. Furthermore, soybeans keep your hair looking hydrated, shiny, and healthy.
