The riches of Africa lie in the depth of its forests. Baobab oil comes from the baobab tree, which is the diamond of African plant life.
Its roots reach the deepest soil in search of water and nutrients. The tree can store gallons of nutrient rich water in its trunk to survive harsh droughts. Incidentally, these magnificent trees can live up to thousands of years.
So, what does this tree have to offer to the world of beauty?
The answer is baobab oil. This miracle oil can be used on hair as well as on the skin. Let’s look at this oil through the prism hair treatment.
What Is Baobab Oil And How Is It Made?
All seeds contain some amount of oil. The baobab fruit, which looks like a coconut, contains a seed which is rich in oil. These are extracted by squeezing the oil out from the seeds. During the crushing and grinding process, the friction produces a lot of heat. This heat can destroy important nutrients and enzymes present in the final product.
Hence, most of the baobab oil available on the market are made by cold pressing of the baobab fruit. This process ensures that most nutrients stay packed inside the oil.
The billion benefits of the brilliant oil.
Baobab oil is extremely popular as a solution for every kind of skin issues. It is readily absorbed by the epidermis of the skin and helps to rejuvenate cell membranes.
But the world is unaware of the hidden potential of this oil as a natural remedy for most hair problems.
To start with it’s a great moisturizer for dry scalp and can penetrate deep into the hair follicles to trigger cell growth. The presence of omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin A, D3 and E, supports a healthy nutritional environment required for hair growth. This is so effective that even baldness can be cured successfully by the regular application of baobab oil.
Dandruff is not a disease by itself, but actually a symptom of dry scalp. People with dandruff can find an immediate cure in this oil. Also, it is an excellent oil to repair damaged hair. It not only protects damage from harmful pollution and UV rays, but also repairs the damaged cells.
The scalp is the thickest part of our skin and other oils just can’t penetrate this layer of epidermis cells. Baobab oil warms well and can easily penetrate the epidermis and the hair shaft to reinvigorate the hair from within.
It is also due to this that this oil has a non-greasy feel to it on the surface. But it keeps your hair moisturized and conditioned from the inside. Regular application of baobab oil can also make your hair thicker too.
