Not only should you be eating quinoa you should be using it in your hair. Yep, you read that right.
Quinoa, if hydrolyzed, does wonders for the hair because it penetrates through the cuticles and supplements the protein loss that happens through coloring, bleaching, sun, sea and age. Quinoa’s natural protein content is far more than any other grain. Also quinoa protein composition is almost identical to the protein composition of the hair (AKA: Keratin). So when the proteins come in contact, they immediately bond together, making the hair stronger and rebuilding it naturally to prevent breakage and split ends. Seriously, mind blown! It also protects against hair loss and thinning for both men and women.
You can now use the quinoa protein to add to your chemical color at home ( 4-5 pumps) or take it the salon to put in 0.25 oz into one application of 2 oz of color or into one scoop of bleach to give back the protein the hair loses. The difference is amaze and could be felt and seen right away.
Meet my new fave hair product: Quinoaplex by ONC. Quinoaplex by ONC provides:
– lasting shine
– manageability without the need of any gels or hairspray.
– shorter time of hair drying
– decreases hair loss, thinning and breakage
– increases the lasting of hair color
– soothing irritated scalp
– it allows the hair to be colored and bleached with much less damage more often as the protein that the hair loses, is given back with the hydrolyzed quinoa protein.
Other great benefits of quinoa hair protein are:
-It promotes growth
-Helps the pigmentation of your hair color
-Its minerals are natural hair strengtheners
-Protect your hair from environmental damaging agents like air pollution.
How To Use:
Shampoo hair and towel dry. Spray on evenly all over hair and then massage till it lathers. Leave for 10-15 min. Then rinse and condition (leave on for 3 min). If you don’t have time, you can just leave it on and not bother with the rinsing and conditioner. You can also spray 4 pumps ( 0.25 fl. oz.) into any chemical box color right before coloring at home. Take it to your salon and ask or insist the colorist to spray 4 pumps ( 0.25 fl. oz.) into your chemical color or bleach solution. It does not interfere with ratios, developer or formula time. You can see its effects after one application. But never use immediately after hair coloring. Wait 3-4 days.
