Better for your hair. Better for the planet.
They say that a woman’s hair is the crown that she wears every day, so it would only be natural for women to give their hair the best care and treatment available. However, in this day and age, with all the different hair products available in the market, it cannot be denied that for the most part, natural and organic is the way to go.
Fortunately, cocoa butter is a product that is not only readily available as a food ingredient but can also be used as an alternative and natural hair and scalp treatment product.
Cocoa butter is, as its name suggests, is a byproduct of the cocoa bean, the plant that we use to make chocolate. As a food product, cocoa butter is usually mixed with other ingredients to make sweets and pastries, but its benefits are not only limited to its inherent deliciousness. Its natural properties also make it good for personal care, more specifically for our hair and scalp.
Below are the top benefits of using cocoa butter as hair and scalp care:
Cocoa butter has natural salving and softening properties and, as such, is an absolutely great product to use for conditioning your hair. Not only that, but you can also use cocoa butter as an alternative-wash solution. Simply mix some of it on your hair and leave it on for about20 minutes. Then wash it thoroughly with warm water. The results may surprise you!
As we grow older, our hair can become more brittle and more prone to frizz and split-ends. This is a natural part of aging, of course, but this does not mean that we are left with no options.
Cocoa butter is one of those organic products that contain natural antioxidants. These substances are responsible for slowing down, if not fully preventing, the breakage of cells.
Since our haircare just like any part of our body, giving them a good dose of antioxidants cannot only make them look fuller and younger, but also more plush and vibrant.
These same antioxidants can also work wonders for your scalp, so make sure to not be stingy with your treatment and try to go deep into your scalp as you lather up your hair with the cocoa butter.
Dry and unmoisturized hair makes it more likely to ply and break. Thankfully, cocoa butter can also act as a natural moisturizer for your hair. Simply apply some small amounts to your hair before leaving the house or hitting the beach. The natural properties of cocoa butter will make sure you keep your hair hydrated, making it stronger and resistant to the elements.
A healthy scalp means healthy hair growth and nothing can act more as a good and nourishing fertilizer of sorts for your hair than cocoa butter. Its natural fatty acids can help keep your scalp healthy and well-fed, thereby giving it the permission to continue pumping out lush and beautiful hair strands as you age.
Believe it or not, people can smell our hairs from a small distance. While there are conditioners that can obviously help with this problem, these products will often contain chemicals that can damage your hair. Also, these may contain artificial ingredients, too.
Cocoa butter is an alternative fragrant solution to our haggard hairs. Everyone loves the smell of butter and, most definitely, everyone loves the smell of chocolate, too. Now, put them together and have them mixed with your hair.
