dōTERRA Salon Essentials Smoothing Conditioner is a professional formula of conditioning emollients, botanical extracts, and natural proteins that leave hair luminous and healthy. It also includes a proprietary blend of CPTG® essential oils specifically selected to stimulate the scalp and bring hair to life. Other natural ingredients seal and protect hair cuticles against water penetration to the hair shaft. Nanotechnology smooths hair and provides an anti-static effect that keeps hair shafts aligned during styling for a smooth, finished look.
The hair shaft is composed of two parts. The outer layer that is visible to the naked eye is called the cuticle. It is composed of small keratin plates, which, in healthy hair, overlap
smoothly on the hair shaft like shingles on a roof. Between each of these tiny plates rests a lipid which helps to seal the plates and protect the hair shaft. The function of the cuticle is to protect the inner cortex of the hair shaft (composed of a softer tissue) by controlling water content of the hair fibre. The cuticle is what gives hair its smooth, glossy appearance.
When hair is frequently washed or wet, water penetrates the hair shaft and causes the shaft to swell, damaging the cuticle and lifting it up, resulting in split ends and breakdown.
Combing or brushing wet hair can produce a mechanical damaging effect as well. Chemical treatments including colouring, perms, and straightening, as well as heat styling and exposure to UV light (sunlight) also damage the cuticle by breaking down the lipid seal causing the plates to lift and separate. This damage leaves the surface of the cuticle rough and jagged and creates an overall appearance of dull, dry, faded, and frizzy hair.
dōTERRA Salon Essentials Smoothing Conditioner dōTERRA Salon Essentials Smoothing conditioner contains extracts which have a sealing effect on the cuticle of each hair shaft, temporarily correcting the appearance of damaged hair. By sealing and smoothing the hair shaft, friction is reduced during combing, brushing,
and styling, helping to reduce mechanical damage to the hair. Natural extracts help reverse the effects of physiological and environmental stressors that can inhibit hair growth.
These extracts support the production of keratin, a vital component of hair growth. Smoothing conditioner also protects the hair shaft against damage caused by frequent washing, UV sunlight, heat styling, and chemical treatments. Natural antioxidants protect the hair shaft and increase retention of color in treated hair. Other botanical ingredients encourage
penetration of moisturising agents to correct previous damage and improve overall appearance and hydration of the hair. The result is hair that looks and feels healthier, shinier, and softer.
