What is Hyaluronic acid and why are its results on hair jaw-droppingly gorgeous?

Living in a hot and humid city like Accra or Kumasi can take such a toll on your hair; natural or otherwise. Your hair either becomes brittle and dry or frizzy and hard to detangle. While hair oils such as coconut, tea tree and even olive oil are great ways to keep your hair moist and lustrous there’s an option that’s been overlooked for a while.

Hyaluronic acid. Maybe you haven’t heard but we are sure you probably own a skincare product that has this superstar ingredient somewhere in it.

It’s a great agent for smooth and glowy skin and now its found its way into hair use. It combats dryness and offers that sleek and shiny look that’ll have your tresses lush and bouncy all day.

Benefits of hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a humectant. It retains moisture approximately 1000 times more than its own weight in water. It is known for hydrating the skin, adding a glow and also reducing fine lines. And the same thing applies to your hair too. Hyaluronic acid is great for dry, damaged and colour-treated hair.

How to use hyaluronic acid on your hair

You can use hyaluronic acid-infused shampoos and conditioners daily as you would any other shampoo. If you’ll be using a serum, you can apply it all over your damp hair and allow it to dry out. You can also dilute it with water in a spray bottle and apply it to your hair and scalp whenever wherever.
