Jojoba oil is a stylist favourite, found in many haircare products. But why do you need it in your routine?
Extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant, jojoba oil offers a whole host of benefits for your hair. Unlike coconut and avocado oil, jojoba oil won’t penetrate the hair – instead it helps prevent moisture loss by forming a protective film around the hair strand, locking in moisture between washes.
It’s lightweight and won’t build up in your hair like other sealants, so it’s great for all hair types, even finer or grease prone hair,
Rich in vitamin E and anti-oxidants, jojoba oil can also work wonders on your skin, maintaining hydration for a healthy glow. It also works well as scalp treatment - perfect if you suffer with dryness or flaking.
Lots of the products in our range contain jojoba oil – here are a few of our favourites.
