For most people a thick, beautiful, and healthy hair is of great importance and hair loss can lead to lack of confidence and influence the mood. Nowadays a lot can be done to regain hair or to prevent hair loss. Likewise, a lot can be done to obtain and keep beautiful, shinny, and healthy-looking hair.
UNIQUE Hair Growth and Shine Conditioner works on two levels. It stimulates hair growth and increases hair thickness, and it adds shine, softens the hair, and strengthens it. For hair growth and thickness, it should be used together with UNIQUE Hair Growth and Shine HA Serum which will significantly intensify the result.
UNIQUE Hair Growth and Shine conditioner
- Improves combability
- Improves hydrophobicity (water repelling)
- Seals the cuticle
- Reduces frizziness
- Enhances shine, smoothness, and manageability.
Several ingredients are present in our conditioner to help add shine, softens the hair, and strengthens the hair. Among these are shea which provides moisture and creates a protective barrier [src] on the hair as it contains fatty acids. Passion Fruit Kernel Oil is rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids such as linoleic acid (omega-6 fatty acid) as well as oleic acid (omega-9 fatty acid) and palmitic acid, all have significant importance for treating dry and damaged hair.
Pomegranate Kernel Oil is ideal for the care of brittle cuticles. At the heart of pomegranate kernel oil is a rare omega-5 fatty acid, punicic acid. This active ingredient is contained in our pomegranate kernel oil at a level of over 60%. Together with the flavonoids, polyphenols and phytohormones also contained, the oil has exceptional antioxidant properties and naturally protects the hair from oxidative stress, i.e. free radicals. It also helps improve hydrophobicity which is the hair’s ability to repel water.
Aloe vera contains vitamins A, C, and E. All these vitamins contribute to cell turnover, promoting healthy cell growth and shiny hair. Aloe vera together with glycerine is good at hydrating the hair. Wheat proteins give strength to the hair and help it grow healthier and stronger. The hair shaft naturally contains 12-15% water and keeping your hair moist keeps it strong and healthy but at the same time it is important that the hair can repel water (hydrophobicity) as this makes the hair more resilient towards external influences like pollution, heat, washing etc..
More ingredients in the conditioner help stimulate hair growth and increase hair thickness for example baicalin which is a flavonoid found in Scutellaria baicalensis, a plant native to China. Baicalin protects from oxidative damage, activates stem cells, and delays senescence. Through the activation of stem cells, the initiation of the anagen phase is accelerated leading to hair growth and greater hair density. Oxidative stress is one of the mechanisms contributing to hair loss. Avoiding or reducing oxidative stress leads to more active and healthier cells, resulting in a longer anagen phase resulting in thicker and denser hair. Delaying senescence leads to an extension of the anagen phase hence ensuing hair growth.
Soy and wheat sprouts provide additional sugar to the follicles which provide the cellular energy required for hair growth. It increases cell proliferation and enhances the metabolic activity of the cells hence increasing hair growth, hair density and hair shine.
Arginine, an essential amino acid, increases nitric oxide levels resulting in increased blood supply to the hair follicles, which stimulates new follicles thus improved hair growth and density.
Ginsenosides, an active component of red ginseng is a known hair growth stimulator. The promotion of hair growth and prevention of hair loss by ginsenosides is associated with the induction of anagen and delaying of catagen phases.
