Juniper Scalp Therapy Conditioner is
made with four organic oils: Avocado Oil, Almond Oil, Olive Oil and Coconut Oil.
The oils basically serve two purposes in the product;
firstly, to help moisturise the hair and secondly to protect it from damage.
Hair in good condition has a natural moisture content within the internal
fibres called the ‘cortex’ of approximately 10%. When hair becomes dry and
brittle it is because the moisture content within the cortex is reduced,
sometimes dramatically so, which leads to the hair losing its elasticity and
strength to the point where it splits and breaks.
To correct this problem and improve the condition
and appearance of the hair it is crucial to increase the moisture content of
the hair. This is what happens when you use a conditioner. Moisture penetrates
into the hair’s cortical fibres, BUT, it would also largely escape back out of
these fibres if there were no oils in the conditioner. The Juniper Conditioner
places an ultra-fine layer of oils onto the surface of your hair, these oils
help trap the moisture within the hair’s internal fibres and this greatly
increases your hair strength and elasticity.
The second way it improves your hair is by helping
to protect it from damage. It does this by smoothing and flattening the cuticle
scales on the surface of your hair. These scales open and become vulnerable to
damage when your hair is dry. When they open, the important moisture inside your
hair can escape more easily, making it even dryer, and because open cuticle
scales give the hair a rough surface the hair tangles easily and breaks. The
oils in the Juniper Conditioner very gently cover the cuticle scales on the
surface of your hair compressing it and leaving it smoother and less vulnerable
to damage from heat, styling products or adverse weather conditions.
