The scalp is the foundation to overall hair health.
That’s why House of Dear is built on the properties of Aloe Vera, Sunflower Seed Oil and Rose of Jericho with the intention of restoring equilibrium and genuinely reviving damaged hair and scalp. One of the oldest plants mentioned in ancient records by rulers, kings, queens, leaders, philosophers and practitioners, Aloe Vera has been listed as a fundamental medicinal source for over 4,000 years, bearing the nickname ‘The Plant of Immortality’. The Aloe Vera that is present in the House of Dear collection is in gel form and Leaping Bunny Certified, which is the purest form that can be used in products.
Why Aloe Vera? Aloe Vera is a natural cleanser, containing thousands of antioxidants belonging to a large family of substances known as polyphenols. These polyphenols, along with several other compounds in Aloe Vera, help inhibit the growth of certain bacteria that can cause infections in humans (MedicalNewsToday.com). These antioxidants strengthen your hair and make your scalp healthier by curing imbalances.
The polyphenols present in Aloe Vera promote balance to the scalp -- so if your scalp is excessively oily or excessively dry and itchy, Aloe can help restore equilibrium. The fatty acids found in the Aloe Vera plant have anti-inflammatory properties. For dry hair, these fatty acids help with dandruff-causing scalp inflammation.
In addition to balancing the scalp, Aloe Vera cleanses the hair shaft by stripping the scalp of excess sebum and residue from hair products. Unlike other cleansing agents, Aloe does not hurt the hair shaft -- it is gentle, preserving the integrity of the hair and scalp. If you are working on an imbalanced scalp issue, I recommend 3 shampoos to get the scalp balanced.
Full of vitamins A, B12, C, and E, Aloe Vera also works to strengthen the hair shaft. Vitamins A, C, and E contribute to cell turnover, promoting healthy cell growth and shiny hair, while vitamin B12 and folic acid are components of Aloe Vera that can keep your hair from falling out. High in collagen, Aloe Vera complements the SPF quality of Sunflower Seed Oil and the resurrecting benefits of Rose of Jericho to work against sun damage, bringing your hair back to life.
