Potent Oils, straight from mother nature

Potent Oils, straight from mother nature

Oils...rich, nourishing natural oils have been used for centuries to soften and protect our beautiful skin and hair.

At BodFood, we made it our mission to source the most potent and nourishing oils that penetrate deep into the hair's cuticle to protect, repair, nourish and even stimulate growth.

Mother Nature really cannot be outdone, can she?

We will share some of our favourite Oils and why we love them so much!

Argan Oil - or as some refer to it, Liquid Gold! Argan Oil comes from the argan tree in Morocco and is an oil that is so rich in essential fatty acids such as oleic and linoleic acid, which are known to lubricate the hair shaft, locking in moisture. Also rich in antioxidants, like Vitamin E, it can tame frizz and provide a protective layer over the hair to protect and repair. It is an incredible oil that offers so many benefits for both the hair and the scalp.

Avocado Oil - The high-fat content and rich range of vitamins in Avocado oil, such as vitamins A, B-5 and E, make it a super nourishing oil known to protect your hair from free radicals and environmental damage. It is also a great oil to help control dandruff!

Jojoba Oil - Is rich in vitamins B, E, and C and minerals like copper and zinc that nourish your hair. Jojoba is a slightly more waxy oil than others and can coat the hair follicles, moisturise, and prevents dryness and split ends.

Flaxseed Oil - Again, rich in fatty acids like Omega-3, which nourish hair follicles, promoting healthy hair growth. When we are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, we can find out hair to be dry and brittle. Flaxseed is also rich in protein and selenium; both are essential for growing healthy, shiny hair. We love to add Flaxseed oil to our smoothies, too, glowing health and hair from the inside out.

Rosemary Leaf Oil - It is a potent botanical oil for hair growth as it is incredibly rich in antioxidants and contains a higher content than goji berries! Studies have shown that it demonstrates the ability to block a byproduct of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which is known to attack hair follicles, causing hair loss. [1]

Nettle Oil - Again another oil that is known for its ability to stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss. Nettle carries the properties of being both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial; therefore is a great natural remedy for a sensitive and inflamed scalp.

So, there you have it, BodFoods favourite oils and why we chose them to nourish your hair from root to tip!

Yours in health and wellness,

Heather and Linda xx
