If you’ve ever read the back of a Hanz de Fuko product, you may have wondered, why does this sound more like a grocery list than an ingredients list? You’ll find certified organic lemon peel, pomegranate and even goji berries. Yes, these are superfoods we’ve all read about, but what do they actually do? We’re here to reveal the importance of these and other plant-based ingredients used in our hair products and why they should be gliding through your locks.
CASTOR + JOJOBA SEED OIL
The two titans when it comes to scalp health, Castor and Jojoba Seed Oil. The ingredients create a base for your hair to grow strong and healthy. Castor Seed Oil promotes hair growth with its high ricinoleic acid content, which makes it beneficial to the skin and scalp.
Jojoba Seed Oil moisturizes the follicles without leaving residue, helping hair cells reproduce at a rapid pace. The moisture retained helps prevent dry scalp, dandruff and hair loss. You’ll find both these ingredients in Quicksand, which can be used as a pre-styler to give your hair a healthy base for cocktailing other stylers.
LEMON PEEL + MALLOW FLOWER
Forget lemonade. When life gives you lemons, make hair products. Lemon Peel’s super powerful antifungal properties are vital to maintaining a healthy scalp and controlling oil production. It also stimulates hair growth for dormant hair follicles.
Mallow Flower is highly emollient, meaning it has amazing skin softening properties and is especially useful on a sensitive scalp. Use our ultimate water based pomade, Heavymade, for a high shine pompadour without that sticky, greasy feel.
SPEARMINT + EUCALYPTUS OIL
Spearmint Extracts will leave you feeling so fresh and so clean. Its’ soothing properties stimulate the hair follicles and increase blood circulation to the scalp. Eucalyptus extracts are combined with Spearmint since they help reduce inflammation in the scalp, creating an ideal environment for hair growth. You’ll find these two ingredients in Sponge Wax, our great wax formulation that balances flexibility and firmness with a matte finish.
These are just a small fraction of the incredible plant-based, food grade ingredients we put in all our products….
