Is there anything that can deliver total hair repair?
Hair shampoos and conditioners works on the hair surface. The action of masks is similar – they repair hair only on the outside because they lack the ability to penetrate through hair cuticles.
In order to be fully repaired, hair needs something that penetrates between cuticles and gets deep inside – to enhance the action of intercellular cement through moisturising and rebuilding its structure.
Main components of intercellular cement are free fatty acids. Therefore, natural oils work in haircare thanks to high concentration of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
What are natural oils?

Most of all, natural oils nourish scalp and hair. They provide strands with deep repair whereas regular hair oil treatment makes them far more beautiful.

Hair oiling – why and how does it work?
Hair oiling works inside the hair so your strands receive something more than beautiful look. They are provided with complex care, protection and – most of all – regeneration of hair bulbs which are responsible for hair growth and beauty.
Natural oils are made of particles which – suitable for a hair type – have the ability to penetrate inside the hair and fight for beauty.
