What are the benefits of sunflower oil

High-quality vegetable oil is a storehouse of vitamins and valuable acids that nourish and heal cells. In the case of hair, they have a maximum beneficial effect:

  1. They retain moisture in curls, preventing them from drying out even under the scorching sun or in the dry air of heated rooms.
  2. Restore the structure of the hair cuticle, smoothing the scales, so that the hair becomes smooth and obedient, less break and split, better combed.
  3. They saturate the bulbs with nutritious components, due to which they stimulate hair growth, nourish the scalp, saving from dry dandruff.
  4. Returns a healthy glow and rich color to hair, even when dyed.
  5. They help smooth out curls, which are often subjected to chemical and heat treatment: painting, the use of resistant cosmetics for styling, curling, straightening and other procedures.
  6. Remove the effect of electrification.

Thanks to the means with the addition of natural oils, the hair becomes obedient, fits beautifully, acquires softness and shine, and is also always protected from the effects of the sun, frost, rain, which makes dull and lifeless curls.

The composition of sunflower oil includes keratin and phosphoric acid, which maintain hair elasticity and healthy scalp. It also contains oleic and linoleic acids, vitamins A, E, group B, calciferol and other valuable compounds. The antioxidants in the oil stop aging and keep hair “alive”. Refined oil is safe, therefore it can be used in all situations on all types of hair.

Oil selection and application rules

To make the result pleasantly pleasing from time to time, you need to follow a few simple recommendations on the use of sunflower oil in hair cosmetics:

  1. Choose clean filtered raw materials. Ideally, this should be a cold pressed product in which all beneficial substances are stored. The presence of suspended matter is not a problem, because it contains phosphatides - these bioactive substances are useful for curls.
  2. Holders of dry and brittle hair can use the oil even in its pure form, but for greasy or normal ones you will have to dilute the oil with herbal decoction or add citrus ether. Concentrated greasy extraction may be difficult for skin with active glands.
  3. Masks with sunflower oil love warmth and are more active when heated. Therefore, before introducing the fatty component into the mixture, it is advisable to hold it in a water bath, bringing it to a temperature of + 30- + 40 degrees, no more - the oil keeps heat well, you can burn the delicate scalp with a hot mixture. For the same reason, it is advisable to wrap such masks and lotions after application: first with polyethylene, then with a towel. However, holding the product for a long time is not worth it - the hair needs to breathe. Typically, such a mask can withstand 10-30 minutes, depending on other active components in its composition.
  4. It is better to apply the product on dry curls - this way it is better absorbed and penetrates deeper into the structure of curls. First, the mixture is applied to the hair roots, while massaging the skin, and then carefully distributed along the entire length to the ends.
  5. Flushing oil is not always easy. To begin with, you can apply a little shampoo dry and try to dissolve the bulk of the product in this way, distributing it through the hair and then rinsing with warm water. After this, the soap solution is applied a second time. If the oil is poorly washed out, acidic juice will help - add a few drops of lemon fresh to the water.

To obtain a lasting effect, it is best to take a course of procedures - 10-15 applications in a row. For dry hair - 2 times a week, for greasy - 1 time in 7-10 days. However, they are not recommended to be used on a regular basis; after completing a health-improving course, hair is given rest for a couple of months.

Hot pressed oil can be used for cosmetic purposes, but it will be less effective. Such a product can be distinguished by color and smell: it is usually a dark brownish-tea liquid with a pronounced aroma of fried seeds and a possible sediment. Cold-pressed oil, as a rule, does not have a smell or it is delicate, grassy-nutty, and the color of the raw material is pale golden.

Cautions and contraindications

Sunflower oil suits everyone and does not harm ringlets. However, it must be used in small quantities and infrequently, so that the strands do not seem heavy and dirty. The effect of the nutritional procedure lasts for a long time, and its premature repetition leads to a kind of overdose. The hair must breathe, so the course of oil is carried out in cases of need to improve and restore curls. For preventive purposes, it is enough to use it 1-2 times a month.

Naturally, it is possible to apply in cosmetic procedures only fresh, non-fried oil without impurities. And if sharp active components, for example, warming essential drops, are included in the product, it is necessary to monitor the aging time of the mask.
