Sweet Almond Oil for Hair: Fast Facts
Sweet Almond Oil is hair reparative and softening. Sweet Almond Oil is excellent for brittle hair, damaged hair, dry and over-processed hair.
Sweet almond oil contains proteins and vitamins A, B, D, and E, Omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids, and magnesium. Amino acids and proteins strengthen the hair strand and smooth the appearance of the hair cuticle. It nourishes and strengthens damaged hair, making it silky and shiny again. It also reduces hair loss and makes hair more elastic.
Sweet Almond Oil protects delicate hair strands and combats brittleness. Brittleness results in breakage and is a huge barrier to meaningful hair growth.
Almond Oil is also a carrier oil, meaning it helps other oils and ingredients penetrate and absorb.
Sweet Almond Oil also gives hair a natural sheen.
How to Use Sweet Almond Oil for Hair
