Vitamin E has proven to be a skincare staple, but when it comes to hair, you might not know all the benefits it has!
Vitamin E is best known for its antioxidant properties that help reduce and prevent free radicals as well as protect the body’s cells. That’s why you should include rich sources of vitamin E in your diet, like nuts, leafy greens, olive oil, and sunflower oil. You can find it in some fortified cereals, flours, and cookies, too.
When it comes to cosmetic products, many companies know the benefits of vitamin E and choose to add it to their beauty and dermatologic lines. Vitamin E has been used in dermatology for decades to help protect the skin against aging, inflammation, and sun damage.
Recently, vitamin E has been hailed as the perfect cure for dull and damaged hair, bringing your locks back to their previous life and brightness. Among the many haircare-related products in the market, there are many shampoos, masks, and oils that are enriched with some kind of Vitamin E.
While shampoos and conditioners are designed to be used in your frequent baths, hair masks are chosen when facing a deeper treatment, as they’re meant to soothe and treat the scalp. Even though vitamin E oil can help moisturize your locks, the strands of your hair can’t be “healed” by it.
