Today, most individuals arm themselves with multiple hair supplies like high-end shampoos, conditioners, treatments, and creams, much of which lay on top of the hair and help only temporarily, if at all. Alcohol-based sprays, gels, and mousses dry, damage, and split the ends of hair we so desperately try to grow.
Daily washing strips our scalps of natural oils and we attempt to replace them with unnatural chemicals. These chemicals go down our drains and pollute the earth, the very water we would drink. The entire process is backwards and harmful to our hair, our health and the Earth.
Hair loses essential oils as we age
Oil glands shrink over time. Youthful chemistry allows oil to easily move down the hair follicle, but as we age, we simply don’t produce as much oil. The older we get, the more important it is for us to add oils to return that necessary moisture and maintain healthy hair; the key is to know which oils are helpful, not harmful.
There is, however, an alternative - one found in an age-old tradition celebrated for thousands of years. Ancient women traditionally treasured their hair and in doing so they didn’t strip their stands with chemicals but rather pampered them by oiling, unlike today’s routine of only washing and then conditioning.
MYTH OR MIRACLE
MYTH: Wait – Aren’t oils bad for the hair? I don’t want my hair to be greasy!
MIRACLE: Oil is absolutely vital for healthy hair and skin – it cleans dust from our scalps to prevent dandruff, infections, irritations, and even hair loss and contains antioxidants for follicle health and repair. It’s an overabundance of oils that causes that greasy feeling we dislike. Rejuveniqe™ oils contain the important ones that our bodies naturally produce to protect the hair. Even if your hair tends to be “oily” in the shampoo-commercial sense, using MONAT® products will help because it’s restoring just the right amount of natural oils it needs.
MYTH: Will using oil on my skin make it appear shiny and greasy?
MIRACLE: Pure oils are lightweight, absorb quickly and leave the skin and hair with a natural healthy glow.
MYTH: Won’t using oil make my skin breakout?
MIRACLE: Many factors contribute to facial breakouts, including hormonal imbalances, bacteria, and sometimes even the food we eat. Pure oils are non-comedogenic (which means they won’t clog pores) so they won’t cause breakouts. In fact, using oils will help to balance out the body’s own oil production and bring it back to a normal healthy level.
MYTH: If I use oil on my scalp won’t my hair look flat and oily?
MIRACLE: Oil is actually good for the scalp and helps provide the perfect environment for hair follicle health and cellular turnover (which helps hair to grow faster and stronger).
MYTH: I heard oils weren’t that safe?
MIRACLE: Oils are packed with antioxidants which fight free radicals and help reverse the effects of sun damage. Using oils on a daily basis is good for your skin and hair and will not damage it in any way.
MYTH: Aren’t’ there better products for age prevention than oils?
MIRACLE: Oils are pure molecular powerhouses that are virtually chemical free. Due to the decrease in the body’s own oil production as we age, fine lines and wrinkles appear, and hair loses its luster and bounce. Oils help replenish what has been lost and since they are not water-based, they don’t need any type of synthetic preservative or chemical added. This makes them pure, safe and one of the best sources of hydration and repair.
