Could this leave in hair mask be the secret to anti-ageing hair care?
While most women happily update skincare routines with the latest anti-ageing products for fine lines and wrinkles, most people overlook hair care.
Due to skin, hair and nails being made up of the same components, when it comes to anti-ageing, hair needs the same level of focus and treatment as the skin to keep it looking fresh, young and healthy.
Luckily, Australian company Canamo Hair and Beauty are “on a mission to make the world a little more beautiful one head at a time with the power of hemp.”
What does ageing hair look like?
Ageing hair is often associated with loss of shine, elasticity and volume which naturally occurs as we get older. Hair can become dry and dull and also more susceptible to damage from heat, colouring, bleaching and the wearing of hair extensions.
While not directly related to ageing, stress induced hair loss can also be a sign of ageing hair and can be treated with the same care.
Scalp health is quite literally the root of where a multitude of hair problems can start. Beyond this, there are also the more obvious signs of ageing hair such as changes in hair colour, texture and growth rate.
What is anti-ageing hair care?
Anti-ageing hair care involves hair and scalp health but holistic health is important too. Hair care includes finding the right haircut for your hair type, getting enough sleep, reducing stress, using a good quality brush that won’t pull or damage the scalp, using hair products that are natural and free from toxic ingredients such as sulphates and parabens, avoiding heat where possible but most importantly a deep conditioning treatment such as a leave in hair masque.
These steps will aid in promoting hair growth, volume, shine and a healthy scalp.
Why a leave-in masque?
Hair masks act as a deep conditioning treatment working to restore broken bonds within the hair shaft. They hydrate and nourish hair, strengthen hair, add vibrance, tame frizz and will overall improve the look and feel of hair.
Canamo Hair and Beauty founder states, “It can be an important addition to your hair care routine to improve hair smoothness, shine and luster. It not only helps soothe your scalp but also nourishes and strengthens the hair strand from within and out”.
A leave-in hair mask is also quick and easy to use as it doesn’t need to be rinsed out and often results are immediate.
Canamo’s Hair and Beauty Leave- in Hemp Masque
This leave-in hair masque is a vegan formula that uses the power of hemp seed oil to promote a healthier hair and scalp. This product is suitable for all hair types and is safe to use on coloured, bleached and keratin treated hair as well as on hair extensions.
Since ageing hair can become thinner and brittle, it’s best to limit the number of products used on the hair. This multi benefit masque is lightweight, won’t weigh down hair and will give the hair and scalp all the antioxidants and nutrients it needs to look fresh, shiny and vibrant.
The hero ingredient, hemp seed oil, will also hydrate dry scalps and increase hair elasticity resulting in less breakage and damage to dry, brittle hair. It even naturally reverses hair loss.
To use, add 1-3 pumps and work into mid lengths to ends of hair. Let is sit for 3-5 mins then style as usual. Use 1-3 times per week.
Why Hemp seed oil?
Hemp seed oil is rich in vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, D, E and B-group as well as omega-3 and -6 fatty acids which your body cannot make naturally. These fatty acids can manage hair loss and help to maintain the thickness and volume of hair. Hemp seed oil is also a naturally hydrating ingredient and also has inflammatory benefits promoting a healthy scalp and roots.
Hemp seed oil also prevents too much water absorption. Ageing hair can become more porous over time from chemical and heat damage, so an oil acts as a barrier, lubricating hair shafts while adding shine.
