Aug 31, 2023
Welcome back to The ARKIVEs by ARKIVE Headcare, your go-to destination for all things hair, hacks and Headcare for you, yours & theirs!
In this blog post, we're diving deep into the wonders of the haircare-hero, and one of Adam’s absolute favourite hair ingredients: jojoba oil and its groundbreaking benefits for your hair.
Let’s explore how jojoba oil can transform your haircare routine regardless of your hair type…
What is Jojoba Oil?
Jojoba oil, derived from the seeds of the jojoba plant (Simmondsia chinensis), is best described as a form of liquid wax that closely resembles the natural oils produced by our skin and scalp. This makes it a gold-standard ingredient choice for haircare, as it's easily absorbed and packed full of nourishing properties.
5 Key Benefits of Jojoba Oil for Your Hair
Before you go running for the hills at the mention of oil going into your hair, hear us out. This versatile natural ingredient is packed with properties that nourish and hydrate your hair, giving it a lustrous shine and promoting overall hair health…
- Deep Hydration and Nourishment: Think of Jojoba oil as being a lightweight moisturiser that penetrates deep into the hair shaft, providing intense hydration and nourishment. It helps replenish dry, brittle hair, leaving it soft, supple, and more manageable. As we know: healthy hair is happy hair!
- Stimulates Hair Growth: If we’ve said it once we’ve said it a hundred times: a healthy scalp is an essential foundation for healthy hair growth. Jojoba oil helps to promote a balanced scalp environment.
- It gently unclogs your hair follicles by emulsifying, and in turn encourages hair growth and reduces hair fall out.
- Tames Frizz and Flyaways: Desperate to achieve the trending slick-back bun look? Look no further! Say goodbye to frizz and flyaways with the smoothing properties of jojoba oil. Its emollient nature helps seal the hair cuticle, creating a sleek and polished look.
- Soothes Scalp Irritation: We can all be a little bit sensitive sometimes. For those with sensitive scalps or scalp conditions like dandruff, jojoba oil can offer soothing relief. Its anti-inflammatory properties calm irritation and redness, promoting a healthy scalp.
Jojoba Oil for Different Hair Types
We’re an inclusive bunch here at ARKIVE, our Headcare is made for our universal community, so we recognise that each hair type has its own needs when it comes to haircare. It’s important to explore how to use Jojoba Oil effectively depending on your hair type:
- Jojoba Oil for Natural Hair: Natural hair craves moisture, and jojoba oil delivers! It's an excellent choice for nourishing and maintaining healthy curls without weighing them down. Embrace your natural texture with the hydration and shine that jojoba oil provides.
- Jojoba Oil for Curly Hair: Curly hair tends to also be more prone to dryness and frizz. Jojoba oil's moisturising properties define curls, reduce frizz, and add a lustrous shine, enhancing the beauty and bounce of your curls.
- Jojoba Oil for Fine Hair: Fine hair requires a delicate balance of providing lightweight hydration that won't weigh it down. Jojoba Oil is perfect for fine hair because of its lightweight nature, providing the needed moisture without leaving a greasy residue, giving you voluminous and healthy-looking locks with repeated use.
How to Incorporate Jojoba Oil into Your Haircare Routine
Incorporating jojoba oil into your existing Headcare routine is a breeze when you follow these simple steps:
- Direct Scalp Application: Massage a few drops of jojoba oil directly onto your scalp to nourish and moisturise. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes or overnight for a deep conditioning treatment before your usual cleansing routine..
- Post-Shampoo/Pre-Styling Treatment: Apply jojoba oil to the ends of your hair before styling, to protect and prevent moisture-loss while styling.
- Jojoba-Infused Hair Products: Look for hair products infused with jojoba oil, such as ARKIVE's All Together Now Co Cleanse and The Good Habit Hybrid Oil. These products harness the power of jojoba oil to nourish and enhance your hair.
