When it comes to achieving gorgeously shiny and healthy locks, we need to take inspiration from hero ingredients hailing from many different countries.
We have rounded up the top 5 essential ingredients for healthy hair to help you achieve your most gorgeous look yet.
Japan, Camellia Oil
Camellia Oil is extremely rich in Omega 9 Fatty Acids, which help to keep the hair fibres healthy and hydrated. By keeping hair well maintained, Camellia Oil helps to reduce frizz and improve your hair’s overall manageability.
For beautiful hair, look no further than Shu Uemura’s Art of Hair Essence Absolue. Rich in Camellia Oil, the lightweight serum helps to unblock pores on the scalp to leave you with healthier, softer and more voluminous locks.
Morocco, Argan Oil
Everyone has heard of the haircare benefits of Argan Oil thanks to one brand: Moroccanoil. Loaded with essential fatty acids, Vitamin E and Omega 9, Argan Oil helps to promote a healthy scalp and improve the strength of your hair.
While the original Moroccanoil Treatment is one of the most popular products, for summer we love the Glimmer Shine Spray, which helps to protect the hair against sun, salt water and chlorine, all while providing the most beautiful shine.
Awapuhi is quite an unfamiliar ingredient, but a hero one none the less. It’s a type of Hawaiian Ginger, which helps to hydrate dry and dehydrated hair strands and keep them soft, shiny and manageable.
Paul Mitchell is one of the most famous brands for embracing Awapuhi in their haircare lines. Their Original Awapuhi Shampoo gently cleanses the hair, whilst also improving its surface texture for frizz-free locks. Follow with the conditioner for best results.
Amla is derived from the Gooseberry Bush, and hails from India. It contains a blend of essential fatty acids that can help to strengthen the hair and relive dry and itchy scalps. Plus, as it conditions the hair follicle, it can help to improve volume and fullness too.
The Aveda Thickening Hair Tonic contains a base of 97% naturally-derived ingredients, including Amla Oil to boost hair’s volume in just one use.
Spain, Olive Oil
Spain is one of the largest cultivators of Olive Oil in the world. Loaded with antioxidants, omegas and vitamins, Olive Oil helps to keep the hair nourished and in the best condition possible.
The Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme contains a blend of Olive Oil and Elastin to help bring dry, damaged and dehydrated hair types back to life. It’s an excellent pre-shampoo treatment that can help to rectify hair breakage for gorgeous locks.
