Kurokami Hair Care: Grow & Darken, Anti-Dandruff
With its golden color and creamy texture, Japanese Camellia oil (also known as Tea Seed Oil) has been responsible for the classic, legendary beauty of Japanese hair for centuries.
In Japan, Camellia oil is commonly used as a leave-in, best when applied to damp hair such as after showering. How much to apply is a matter of personal preference. A little goes a long way, though you can apply as much as you like. Geishas and maikos apply a lot, for the distinct Japanese traditional glossy hair look they prefer.
For difficult hair, it can also be applied to hair before washing to detangle hair and make it more manageable.
The benefit list of Camellia oil for hair care is long:
- Softens hair and tame frizzy hair
- Restores hair's natural shine
- Hydrate dry hair
- Forms a barrier against environmental pollutants
- Repairs breakage and split ends
- Treats dry scalp and itchiness
- Helps prevent dandruff
- Treats damage from chemicals of perms and coloring
The key to healthy hair is healthy follicles. Shampoo is alkaline, which is bad for your hair. Age and environmental dirt clogs your follicles and makes them unhealthy. Camellia oil deeply penetrates and cleans your follicles, removing dirt and other impurities. This stimulates increased hair cell activity and hair cell division. The end result is that your hair grows more quickly, it is healthier and stronger, and inactive hair cells become "awakened" and active again. There is also increased production of melanin which reverses the graying process, and the slightly acidic pH of camellia oil helps neutralize the alkalinity of shampoo to prevent further damage. That explains why we name this beautiful bar as KUROKAMI which also means dark hair in Japanese
