The Tantalizing Shine of Hair Benefits: Organic Meadowfoam Seed Oil

The Tantalizing Shine of Hair Benefits: Organic Meadowfoam Seed Oil

Do not feel bad if you don’t know what meadowfoam seed oil is. Many have not heard of it, let alone used it.

What is important is that you understand how this oil can benefit the health of your hair. If you have been tirelessly seeking out the end results falsely promised on hair care packages, then meadowfoam seed oil is going to be your new best friend.

Behind the Mystery

This beneficial oil is extracted from the crushed seeds of the meadowfoam plant. The creamy, white flowers of the plant are what earned this plant its pastoral name, as they resemble a meadow full of airy and delicate foam.

The benefits for hair lie deep within the seed oil, which is full of long-chain fatty acids, perfect for providing moisture without leaving a greasy feeling behind.

Meadowfoam seed oil is used in numerous beauty products because of its ability to remain on the skin for a long time. It provides moisture, shine, and is resistant to oxidation. The ability to evade the corrosive actions of oxidation means that your hair will retain its color for longer, meaning you can save money on hair coloring treatments.

The Best Oil for Your Hair

Your hair can make a powerful statement about you, so you want it always looking its best. One sure-fire way to make a bad first impression is with dry, dull and lifeless hair.

Meadowfoam seed oil provides the moisture you need to make sure this never happens. By locking in moisture at the follicles, and delivering essential vitamins, this oil keeps your hair looking vibrant and full of life all day long.

Frizzy hair? Not a problem. A small drop of meadowfoam seed oil keeps every strand in place, curly or straight. Vitamin E from the oil promotes the growth of strong and healthy hair by nourishing your scalp.

A dry scalp can cause your hair to dry out, which makes it more likely to frizz out. Using this oil means no frizz out and no freaking out, which is why the best hair masques contain it.

So, what exactly is it in meadowfoam seed oil that takes such good care of your hair? Vitamins C and E, oleic acid, linoleic acid, antioxidants, and special fatty acids are just the tip of this iceberg.

These essential nutrients promote lush, thick, shiny hair and only with a small drop each day. The benefits you can expect to see include:

♦ Deep moisturizing from root to tip

♦ Nutrients delivered deep into the hair follicle

♦ Beautiful sheen

♦ Soft and manageable hair

♦ A gentle barrier to lock moisture in and protect your hair all day

♦ Less moisture loss from your hair

Make Your Own Hair Oil

Using the ingredients below, you can whip yourself up a DIY hair oil to use every day. Of course, you can also buy one specifically designed to provide the benefits you’re looking for.

Give your hair protection, shine, and body with this easy to make and even easier to use creation.

♦ 2 tbsp meadowfoam seed oil

♦ 1 tbsp grapeseed oil

♦ 1 tbsp jojoba oil

♦ 1 tbsp camellia oil

♦ 10 drops sweet orange essential oil

The real beauty of this hair oil is that it can be used in several different ways. Depending on your schedule and preferences, you can take care of your hair with ease.

Simply use one teaspoon of the oil as a leave-in conditioner, to be applied to your freshly washed hair each morning. You can also use it to hold a particular style in place or add a little extra shine to that special up-do.

If your hair is seriously dried out and damaged from treatments or environmental exposure, consider using the meadowfoam seed oil as a mask.

Apply two teaspoons to your scalp and each strand, then wrap in a towel and leave for an hour or two. Using a natural and sulfate-free shampoo, wash your hair. Doing this a few times a month will bring the shine and life back to your hair in no time.

With so many products out there to “fix” your hair, it can be hard to know what to choose. The best bet to restore hair to its natural beauty and strength is with natural products, and nothing is more natural than meadowfoam seed oil.
