Hairdresser-stylist Yevgeny Shatokhin told how to use coconut oil for hair correctly, whether castor oil will help to grow hair and how much oil masks should be left in order for them to have the desired effect.
Coconut oil is versatile. It easily replaces body butter, face cream and hair mask. By the way, about the latter. The oil contains many useful amino acids that envelop the surface of the hair, protecting it from aggressive environmental influences. It restores healthy shine, prevents dryness, softens and moisturizes. There are several ways to use coconut oil. Before washing along the entire length - twice a week, instead of a conditioner - it is applied to damp hair, and then washed off with shampoo, together with a detergent - 2-3 drops. If you have an oily scalp, do not apply oil to the roots - back off 5-6 cm.
Argan oil is adored by trichologists. For this, thanks to the "golden" composition - it contains polyunsaturated fatty acids, as well as shottenol and alpha-spinasterol, which are responsible for cell regeneration - can be safely applied to the scalp with dryness and slow growth. And one more helpers are triglycerols, which restore the protective hydrolipid barrier. If you want to make a mask, heat the oil to room temperature, and after application, wrap your hair with a film and slightly heat it with a hairdryer, so that the beneficial substances quickly penetrate the hair follicles.
This oil, which you can easily buy in any pharmacy, also has a lot of useful properties - it prevents fragility, strengthens the roots and "pacifies" the cuticle by smoothing it. The main active ingredient is ricinoleic acid, which helps to accelerate hair growth. The oil can be used neat. But it is better to give preference to products based on it - they foam better, wash off better and contain a "cocktail" of additional useful ingredients. Contraindications to its use: allergies and individual intolerance.
It seems that there is not a single girl left on earth who has not tried to make a mask from burdock oil at least once in her life. Our grandmothers knew about its properties. And in the age of low molecular weight cosmetics, they continue to beat popularity records. And all because its composition is a storehouse of vitamins, micro- and macroelements.
Burdock oil stimulates local immunity, enhancing the protective properties of the skin, improves metabolic rate, activates hair follicles, eliminates dandruff.
In pure form, massage onto scalp. Keep it on for at least two hours - this is how much the oil molecule needs to penetrate the epidermal barrier.
Avocado oil is a must for those who suffer from dry ends and dry scalp. Unlike all the others, it does not belong to the basic, but is more often found in other care products. It is greenish-yellow, without a pungent odor, it perfectly retains moisture. The only drawback of the oil is the difficulty in flushing. Although this disadvantage more than compensates for the effect: hair after application is smooth, shiny and healthy, I highly recommend looking in his direction for all blondes.
