Hyaluronic acid in hair
Hyaluronic acid is well known and recognized for its ability to provide and maintain moisture in dry skin; it simply adds radiance to the skin. So it is a powerful ingredient that is used in numerous facial creams and serums to stimulate and increase the acid that our skin produces, which, over the years, diminishes.
But hyaluronic acid is also found in the tissue of the dermal layer of the scalp. It is what keeps our cells hydrated and maintains the moisture of the scalp to avoid dryness and also premature hair loss. In the same way that happens in the skin, over time, our body ages naturally and, gradually, less of this substance is produced, which causes a decrease in the quality and quantity of our hair. That is why we turn to shampoos, masks, sprays, etc., to improve this deficit.
These are the benefits of hyaluronic acid in your hair
First, hydrates the hair as well as the scalp. The moisturizing binding properties of hyaluronic acid work in a similar way on hair fibers as they do on skin, allowing the hair fibers to retain and lock in the moisture in the products. The same thing that happens in the scalp, allowing collagen to flourish, avoiding dryness in this area.
Another benefit is in the frizz reduction, since hyaluronic acid also helps seal the cuticle, which prevents unwanted moisture from entering it, causing hair to frizz and shrink into frizzy and coiled hair textures.
Last but not least, fill hair, as hyaluronic acid could theoretically help plump dry and damaged manes. This filling effect could be used to add volume to the roots, but additional ingredients would be needed to repair the damage.
Who should use hyaluronic acid on their hair?
Taking into account its benefits, it is clear to us that All hair types and textures could benefit from using any hyaluronic acid based product. Especially people with dry, brittle and perhaps damaged hair, as well as frizzy hair.
Even chemically processed and dyed strands can benefit from hyaluronic acidSince the hair shaft tends to be porous and this acid can help fill in the cracks and hydrate them. It is also a particularly good ingredient for not weighing down the curls and not leaving a greasy feeling on the hair.
