It’s official, winter is here and that means dry skin and hair. What is a girl (or guy) to do? Well, we have an amazing product that has some pretty amazing benefits that should be on your shopping list ASAP! We would like to introduce our little friend, Bassu Oil. Our amazing partner, Surface, is the particular brand we will be focusing on. We love this product in the salon as it is amazing for both hair and skin!
Organic Babassu oil is a non-drying penetrating oil that is considered a superior emollient beneficial for either dry or oily skin and hair. It gently moisturizes without leaving an oily sheen or weight.
If you go directly to surfacehair.com, you will see that they say the following:
Babassu Oil is pressed from the seeds of the Babassu Palm Tree. When nuts ripen and fall to the ground they are gathered and cracked open by “Babassu Breakers” – women whose livelihood is to harvest and crack the nuts. Brazilian women have been using Babassu oil on their skin for centuries. Babassu oil is known for its healing powers throughout the world; it is easy to see why the tree is known as the “Tree of Life”. Babassu oil is a non-drying penetrating oil that is considered a superior emollient beneficial for either dry or oily skin and hair. It gently moisturizes without leaving an oily sheen or weight. Penetrating oils are preferred to Petroleum and Mineral Oil as both of these create a barrier on the skin and hair, nothing goes in and nothing can get out. Repeated uses of such moisturizers can clog pores and build up, potentially resulting in skin irritation and damaging the hair. Surface botanical penetrating moisture becomes complete with the soothing healing powers of Aloe and omega-3 nutrient, antioxidant rich Flax Seed Oil.
The one thing that we would love to point out about this incredible brand is that it’s not just an oil that you apply to your hair. You will see that there is an entire system for your hair so you can really treat your dry, brittle, winter stressed strands from the inside out. Surface has created a shampoo, conditioner, masque and shine spray with babassu oil in them, along with this oil that we at Moxie on Maple Ave have come to love so much! If you are interested and want to try this system for yourself, contact us and we will be more than happy to get these products into your hands today!
