You’ll probably know Vitamin E as an all-in-one supplement from your skincare products. What you might not know is that it’s a miracle worker for your hair too!
Vitamin E (known in science-circles as Tocopherol) is an organic chemical compound which you consume in your everyday life. You’ll usually find it in foods such as nuts, seeds and plant oils. Its powerful antioxidant effects help to maintain healthy skin and eyes, as well as strengthen the body’s immune system.
If that wasn’t enough, Vitamin E can also help to give you beautiful hair! Here’s how:
Vitamin E covers your scalp and hair with a protective layer. This layer helps your hair in three ways: it locks in moisture, reduces oxidative stress and improves blood flow. This tri-factor is the reason that Vitamin E can give your hair the x-factor you’ve been looking for. It works in a number of ways, starting with your hair.
There is a protective layer of oils on the surface of your hair, which helps to prevent against dullness and frizziness. However, this can be stripped away when you overwash or use the wrong hair products.
Vitamin E works by replenishing this protective layer – keeping your hair shiny and frizz-free. Yay!
It also helps to protect your scalp – Vitamin E provides your scalp with a barrier which locks in moisture and keeps your skin in the perfect condition to facilitate healthy hair growth. In fact, dry irritated skin conditions (like those that produce dandruff) are often linked to a Vitamin E deficiency in people’s diets.
Last but not least, there is evidence that Vitamin E improves blood flow in the scalp. This might not seem like much, but healthy blood circulation is vital to healthy hair as blood feeds your follicles with all the nutrients it needs to thrive.
So, there you have it – Vitamin E and all the wonderful things it does for your hair. It’s really no surprise that we’ve included it as a key ingredient to our Soothing Cleansing Cream.
This product in the haircare range is meant to be massaged and left in for a few minutes, so your hair and skin can absorb all the Vitamin E goodness – believe us, it’s worth it.
