Ever wonder why our Hydrating Avocado Conditioner is so…hydrating? This is thanks to a life-changing ingredient: Panthenol! This vitamin helps keep your hair moisturized and feeling softer than ever. Keep reading to find out more about the benefits of panthenol for natural hair!
What is panthenol and where does it come from?
Panthenol is made from vitamin B-5, which occurs organically. This natural vitamin is also known as pantothenic acid, and is a very common additive in cosmetic products as a softener, soother, and anti-irritant.
What does panthenol do for natural hair?
Panthenol's anti-irritating agents help soothe your scalp. Its protective properties help build a wall that guards your hair against water loss and irritation. It strengthens, soothes, and allows your hair to shine.
What’s interesting about panthenol is that it can collect moisture from the air and transfer those water molecules to your hair, giving you that extra hydration. There is a smooth film that reflects light, allowing the hair to look shiny and glossy. This smooth film also allows for a great slip, which drastically cuts down detangling time!
This humectant spreads evenly across the scalp, ensuring that all your hair follicles are getting the moisture and love they deserve. One of its main goals is to fight against dehydration.
Not only is it great for hydration but panthenol is great for thickening your hair too! As it enters your hair shaft, it provides your hair with an extra amount of Vitamin B. This promotes hair growth and allows your hair to grow stronger and longer!
How do I add panthenol to my natural hair regimen?
Panthenol can be found in NaturAll's Hydrating Avocado Conditioner. After letting this conditioner set for about a minute in your hair and rinsing it out, you will notice a big difference when combing through your curls. The added panthenol makes detangling much easier and will enhance your hair's natural shine.
Panthenol is a holy grail ingredient with awesome benefits. Start implementing this in your curly hair regimen and watch your hair flourish!
