Moringa: a tree with many beneficial properties
Native to India, the Moringa is an extraordinary tree found mainly in the Indian Ocean, Madagascar and in the arid zones of Asia and Africa. The Moringa Oleifera, to give it its full title, has been renowned for millennia for its many benefits and myriaduses. Its countless uses throughout the ages and still today make it a cornerstone of many Indian and African communities. Moringa is an essential plant in Ayurvedic medicine, which uses it in the treatment and prevention of many diseases.
All the extraordinary benefits of Moringa, nutritional, medicinal and cosmetic, have earned it the nicknames "tree of life", "the miracle tree" or "the never die tree", due to its survival ability. Moringa is also an exceptional hair care ingredient, thanks to its moisturizing properties. Its oil is used to care for dry, coily, curly or sensitive hair.
Moringa oil: the secret weapon for moisturizing coily and curly hair
Moringa oil works miracles on curly and coily hair. This type of hair is particularly fragile because of the shape of its hair fiber, but also because of the scalp. Coily and curly hair have a very tight, spiral curl structure. The hair is weakened by the curls and shape of the hair, as at each curl the cuticle is very flexed and the hair diameter is thinner, which makes it a weak spot for breakage. Coily and curly hair is therefore very fragile and sensitive to brushing, blow-drying and using heat-styling tools, but also to everyday styling and even using elastics to tie it up. When the hair is damaged, you may see a lot of frizz at the ends of the hair fibers. This can also be caused by lack of moisture. The scalp of curly and coily hair is very dry, as it produces little sebum. This sebum also has difficulty reaching the strands of the hair because of their curly shape. The sebum stagnates at the scalp: the hair becomes greasier. Conversely, some types of curly or coily hair have a problem with very dry scalp, due to this low sebum production.
The key to taking care of your curly hair? Deeply nourish and moisturize your locks with Moringa oil.
