What are the benefits of Cactus extract for growing your hair?

Okay, so you are new to the benefits of cactus extract for our hair, right? You will be amazed at the wide range of benefits the prickly pear (the form of cactus extract) has to help grow hair, as healthy as it can be. 

 

Hair oils are important in many health and beauty regimes. Typically plant extracts, have been attributed to a wide range of benefits: fast hair growth, prevention of hair loss, and maintenance of soft, smooth, and shiny hair. Cactus oil for hair is our secret weapon that proudly features some of these benefits, particularly as it relates to hair loss prevention. If you want to get into details, the high fatty acid content in cactus oil may encourage hair growth and maintenance of healthy hair. Since the Cactus extract also includes a number of important vitamins and moisturising properties, this can further ensure a healthy head of hair. All sounds pretty good so far doesn’t it!

 

What do vitamins actually do to protect your hair?

 

Essential vitamins and minerals help keep hair healthy by nourishing individual strands and follicles for growth and development. Since plants produce these nutrients to sustain themselves, extractions from the plants will often contain high doses of substances like vitamin B5. Cactus oil is an essential oil containing high levels of nourishing vitamins and minerals. Desert-dwelling cacti are particularly valuable resources for nutrients because they store water and other needed materials inside themselves for long periods of time. This means the cactus are a rich source of nutrients and have even been associated with other health benefits such as improved heart health in some studies.

 

Another important beneficial substance produced by cactus oil for hair is omega fatty acids. These particular components prove vital in overall growth and development. For hair, they help to ensure that each hair follicle cycles and recycles through the three stages of hair growth. Following the final telogen stage when a hair falls from its follicle, the follicle should automatically begin again at the anagen stage, producing a new hair strand. Fatty acids aid in keeping this process active, as a ceasing of functioning between stages three and one most often causes permanent hair loss.

Related to the cactus’s strong water storage capacities, cactus oil is perhaps one of the best moisturising agents available. Moisture replenishment keeps hair thick and shiny. It coats hair follicles with needed layers of protection, adding volume and shielding the hair from damage. Using hair oil is beneficial because most types contain moisturising properties, but cactus oil, due to its origin, is arguably a mark above the rest.

 

Cactus oil for hair is beneficial for what it does not contain as much as for what it does contain. Like most natural products, cactus oil generally possesses none of the harsh chemicals like alcohol that infuse many hair care products. Harsh substances can strip away protective layers, causing the hair to become dry and brittle. Further, they may attack the hair shaft itself, breaking down its basic structure and destroying the roots. Using cactus oil for hair may avoid these dangers, while providing a moisturised scalp cleansed of dead skin.

 

The cactus oil extract used in SOS Hair Care Multivitamin has a high-grade inclusion which means you are benefiting from premium quality doses of cactus extract, just like other vitamins and minerals within the hair vitamin drink such as Biotin and Zinc. As you are consuming the vitamins orally, your body will be digesting and then distributing high levels of this superfood into your system and helping to provide your hair with the much-needed nutrients it needs to grow hair as quickly as possible.
