To seal in hydration or in an oil bath: Linseed oil.
French brand: WAAM.

Attention for fine hair :
Use only on tips/forks.
Do not apply Hair Milk in addition because your hair will be too heavy and your curls will not be bouncy.

Linseed oil has long been banned on French soil, but since 2009, this is over. Today, it is even acclaimed for its many health benefits, but also for its cosmetic properties. Indeed, you should know that flax comes from the Latin linire, which means to soften.

1. It moisturizes the hair

Pollution, sun…: the hair dehydrates and becomes dry. Using flaxseed oil will then allow you to deeply moisturize them.

By retaining water in the cells of your scalp, flaxseed oil regulates and rebalances sebum production.

2. It has a protective and restorative effect:

After having hydrated your hair in depth, the omega-3 and vitamins B and E contained in linseed oil will help protect and strengthen the sheath of your hair.
Thus, by filling in the gaps, this oil will protect your hair from external aggressions. Say goodbye to split ends: you will find thicker, softer and shinier hair. Ideal for sensitive, fine or damaged hair!

Say goodbye to split ends: apply a few drops of linseed oil to your hair from the lengths to the ends.

3. It provides discipline and shine:

Flaxseed oil also helps control frizz and tames curly hair. You can mix a few drops with your shampoo or use it as a leave-in hair oil to regain suppleness and shine.
It smoothes the scales of the hair and defines the curls while fighting against frizz.

4. It promotes hair regrowth

Vitamin E, combined with omega 3 and 6, slows hair loss and promotes regrowth. Indeed, flaxseed oil stimulates the micro-circulation of the scalp and therefore helps to keep hair healthy and slow down hair loss.

You can apply organic linseed oil directly and gently massage the scalp to stimulate micro-circulation.

How to use flaxseed oil on hair?

There are many more ways to use flaxseed oil to boost the health of your hair!

Indeed, this oil can be used daily, for your hair or as a restorative mask.

  • In daily care : mix one to two drops of linseed oil directly with your shampoo when washing your hair;
  • To style your hair: Distribute a small amount of oil over the length and ends, massaging gently. Linseed oil can also be used as a leave-in moisturizer!
  • An oil bath: a hair mask to make every 2 weeks to nourish, moisturize and protect your hair. Nothing could be simpler: coat your hair with linseed oil and leave on for a minimum of 3 hours. To speed up the process, you can wrap your hair in a hot towel. Rinse your hair, apply your usual shampoo, and voila!

You can also combine it with other vegetable and essential oils to make a hair mask to leave on for about 5 minutes before your shampoo.

Among these oils, we find castor oil (to nourish and coat the hair fiber) or the essential oil of Ylang Ylang (to revive dull hair).
