Inside the heart of all Enzohair Holistic hair formulas reside 5 major base ingredients that restore the 4 natural balances (Protein, Moisture, Sebum & pH Acid Mantle) so essential for healthy hair. These 5 major ingredients orbit the Enzohair health philosophy ensuring that your hair is best maintained with an optimum, healthy balance at all times.
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: Hair consists of 97% protein so it is essential to replenish and restore this major component with any product used on the hair. All chemical services such as coloring, bleaching or highlighting corrodes the hair causing a protein imbalance. As such, hair needs to be fed with keratin protein infusions to re-balance.A key ingredient to fulfill this need is hydrolyzed wheat protein. This is a water soluble protein derived from wheat. It’s able to penetrate the inner cortex of each strand and has the ability to strengthen and moisturize hair as well as increase its ability to absorb and maintain moisture.
Macadamia Nut Oil: Hair requires a natural sebum (oil) balance in order to be manageable and pliable. Hair lacking this balance is dry and unmanageable and is the root cause of most “bad hair days!” Enzo Holistic utilizes macadamia nut oil which has a synergistic relationship with capillary sebum thereby increasing the strength of the hair strand right from the root. It is thus capable of moisturizing and strengthening rough, dry, frizzy and limp hair. This holistic oil also puts a protective coating on hair follicles and the scalp thus preventing moisture loss. This is accomplished without making the hair or scalp greasy and is readily absorbed into the hair shaft ensuring maximum protection.
Oatmeal: A vitamin B based extract which acts like a humectant and helps draw moisture to the hair shift, oatmeal is able to penetrate the inner cortex layer of the hair and contributes to thickening and strengthening of the hair shaft. It essentially works to make your hair less brittle and more elastic. Oatmeal contains beta-glucan polysaccharides which act like a softening emollient that forms a film over the hair shaft sealing in moisture while providing a protective barrier for the hair. Amongst the other amazing benefits oatmeal has are its abilities to treat dry, itchy scalp and help combat hair loss!
Panthenol: This naturally occurring ingredient enhances moisturization thereby adding thickness and body to the hair. In addition to being a natural humectant, panthenol is also a useful moisturizer and emollient. It spreads evenly on the surface of the hair strands forming a smooth film on the surface of the cuticle. This film gives enhanced coherence to light reflecting from the surface of the hair which imparts significant gloss and shine. It is also highly water soluble thus is easily removed when cleansing the hair.
Piroctone Olamine: The scalp works 24/7 to defend itself from micro organisms and fungal infections. Its defense system continuously works to defend itself from a wide range of natural and unnatural influences. Sometimes this defense system weakens allowing a common fungal infection called Phyrosorum Ovale to take root. This fungus causes considerable cell multiplication causing scaling to form which the scalp, in its already weakened condition cannot control. This scaling mixing with scalp sebum causes dandruff to form. Piroctone Olamine is an anti-dandruff ingredient that soothes inflamed scalps and reduces flaking. It destroys the fungal infection and works to prevent the formation of new dandruff helping the scalp stay clean, fresh and itch free.
