Hair Detox With Herbs
“Certain herbs can also help detoxify hair and remove unwanted bacteria in the scalp. Thyme cleanses the scalp and removes buildup and debris that can slow or prevent hair growth. Sage cleanses and purifies both the skin on the scalp and the hair itself, removing unwanted or unneeded bacteria. In addition, ivy burdock can help block undesirable hormones that can cause various scalp problems.”http://www.ehow.com/list_6849694_herbs-use-detox-hair.html
after I browsing to find the best herbs that suitable for hair detox, finally I decide olive oil as the best essential hair detox.
Why Olive Oil ?
- “Olive oil contains a wide variety of valuable antioxidants that are not found in other oils. Hydroxytyrosol is thought to be the main antioxidant compound in olives”
“OCM atau oil cleansing method adalah salah satu metode membersihkan kulit dengan bahan dasar 80 persen oil olive. Memang sebenarnya ocm digunakan untuk kulit wajah namun ternyata juga effective untuk membersihkan kulit kepala, serta rambut dari toxin, unwanted bacteria, fungi yang menganggu proses pertumbuhan rambut.”
Note about Hydroxytyrosol“Hydroxytyrosol is a phenolic phytochemical with antioxidant properties. After gallic acid, hydroxytyrosol is believed to be one of the most powerful antioxidants. Its oxygen radical absorbance capacity is 40,000 umolTE/g, which is ten times higher than that of green tea, and two times higher than that of CoQ10. In nature, hydroxytyrosol is found in olive leaf which is used for medical purposes, with immunostimulant and antibiotic properties. It also exists in olive oil, in the form of its elenolic acid ester oleuropein and, especially after degradation, in its plain form. Oleuropein, along with oleocanthal, are responsible for the bitter taste of extra virgin olive oil. Hydroxytyrosol itself in pure form is a colorless, odourless liquid. The olives, leaves and olive pulp contain large amounts of hydroxytyrosol (compared to olive oil), most of which can be recovered to produce hydroxytyrosol extracts Hydroxytyrosol is also a metabolite of the neurotransmitter dopamine.” Quote from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydroxytyrosol
