Discover the effect of mineral oil on hair

Hair oils have been used for a long time and recommended by experts to maintain the hair care routine. Oils contribute to humectation, hydration, frizz reduction, among other functions, however, it is necessary to pay attention to formulas that are specific to hair, because depending on the product, it can cause damage to the strands.

This is the case with mineral oils, which are composed of petroleum derivatives, and these damage the hair, in fact, the problem is that these compounds are not soluble in water or alcohol, so they accumulate in the hair and create a layer which is not removed during washing, so when the strands need hydration or any type of treatment, the products will not be able to reach the hair fibers, that is, the hair will gradually become drier, lifeless and prone to breakage.

According to the specialist, Rodrigo Cintra, the ideal is to look for oils based on natural products, such as omega 3, argan, macadamia, calamus, and others. These are perfect components to nourish, moisturize and protect the hair.

To avoid mineral oils, it is important to pay attention to the product label, usually on the packaging itself it is already written whether the oil is mineral or vegetable, if not specified, you can clarify the doubt by the product ingredients, if there are components such as: petrolatum, petrolatum, mineral oilparaffinum liquidum, paraffin and Vaseline, this oil is mineral, even partially. You don’t need to have all these ingredients, just one, and the oil is considered mineral.
