Hair is made up of 90% keratin, an extremely strong protein which is a major component in the hair, skin and nails. Keratins in the hair have large amounts of the sulfur -containing amino acid cysteine it combines to form disulphide bridges that confer additional strength and rigidity by permanent, thermally-stable cross linking. These strong bonds are flexible yet tough.
ARGAN (Argania spinosa)
A rare oil native to Morocco, Argan is highly valued for its nutritive, beautifying and medicinal properties. In ancient times the Berbers of Morocco would collect the oil for use in cosmetics. Argan oil contains tocopherols (vitamin E), phenols, carotenes, squaline, and essential oleic acids.
Amino acids are the basis of proteins that make up hair. These include: serine, threonine, valine, arginine, aspartic acid, alanine, proline, isoleucine, phenylalanine and histidine. These amino acids have a natural affinity with hair and can penetrate the cuticle providing moisture deeper inside the hair shaft.
