Blackcurrant oil is a vegetable oil obtained from the seeds of blackcurrant, a plant belonging to the Grossulariaceae family. It is known for its nourishing and protective properties and is often used for hair treatment.
Blackcurrant oil is rich in essential fatty acids, such as linoleic and linolenic acids, and vitamins, such as vitamin E and vitamin C. These nutrients help hydrate and strengthen hair, making it softer and shinier.
Additionally, blackcurrant oil has antioxidant and protective properties that help protect hair from damage caused by UV rays and over-styling. It can also help prevent hair loss and promote hair growth.
To use blackcurrant oil on hair, simply apply a small amount to dry or slightly damp scalp and hair, massage gently and leave to act for at least 30 minutes before rinsing. You can also add a small amount of blackcurrant oil to a shampoo or conditioner for a lighter nourishing and protective treatment.
