We girls live for good hair days. From boosting our confidence levels to making us feel like we can conquer the world, stunning locks can really do wonders. That’s why we don’t mind going the extra mile to make sure our hair looks great at least every other day. But we are also painfully aware of the amount of damage regular heat styling can do to our hair. That’s why we’d rather opt for a hair care routine with super-charged ingredients.
Now if you’re anything like us, you probably already know of some power ingredients for healthy, luscious locks. But we’re about to bring you up-to-speed with the latest ones. Take a look at five hair care ingredients that are game-changers for damaged hair. They are easily accessible and super nourishing!
Moringa is the latest ingredient to have gained popularity for its amazing hair-loving properties. Moringa oil helps strengthen your hair by protecting it from heat and environmental damage. It moisturises the scalp, makes your hair appear shinier and keeps it hydrated. Additionally, moringa oil helps fight split ends and promote healthy hair growth.
BB pro tip: You can add a few drops of moringa oil to your regular hair oil or even to your favourite hair mask to reap maximum benefits of this miracle ingredient.
The skin benefits of white tea are pretty well known, but did you know that it has some equally notable hair care benefits? Enriched with an antioxidant called epigallocatechin gallate, this tea enhances hair growth and prevents premature hair loss. White tea also naturally protects hair against sun damage and prevents hair from drying out in summer months.
BB pro tip: If you want to improve hair shine and make your hair appear healthier, then you should opt for a white tea-infused shampoo. We recommend using the Dove Healthy Ritual For Growing Hair Shampoo as it enriched with coneflower, oil and white tea for long and lustrous hair.
Known for its amazing exfoliating properties, sea salt is beneficial when it comes to improving hair health. It helps absorb excess oil, humidity and moisture from the scalp, easily removing dandruff. Exfoliating the scalp with sea salt helps get rid of product build-up and makes your hair appear more voluminous, shinier and thicker.
BB pro tip: Sprinkle some sea salt on your scalp and gently massage it. After some time, wash it like you normally would.
The latest, most surprising ingredient that’s trending for its incredible beauty benefits is pineapple. Pineapple is said to be rich in vitamin C and aids hair growth. Being a rich source of antioxidants, pineapple has the ability to protect your hair from environmental aggressors and makes your hair appear smooth. It adds an extra layer of silkiness and makes it look thicker too.
BB pro tip: Include pineapple in your diet by making it a part of your salads and fruit bowls. You can even add pineapple puree to your hair masks to make the most of it.
Originally a skincare ingredient, avocados have of late sprung to popularity for their hair care benefits too. Thanks to the super nourishing and moisturising properties of avocado, it leaves your hair feeling extremely smooth and soft. Chock full of vitamins A, D, E and B6, avocado is a superhero for people with dry and damaged hair.
BB pro tip: For a super moisturising hair mask, mix together one tablespoon of mashed avocado, one teaspoon of olive oil, half tablespoon of raw honey and one egg. Cover your entire hair and scalp with the mixture, leave it on for 10 minutes and wash off as usual.
