The 3 Core Principles Explained: Oil Balancing
What is Oil Balancing?
We all know that hair starts at the scalp: it’s where it grows from, therefore it should be obvious that this is where the process of beautiful hair should begin. However, despite this being clear to see, most hair care still focuses all of the attention on the lengths but if this is growing from an unbalanced scalp then essentially you’re fighting an already lost battle. You’ve got the start at the root of the situation, literally. Through over-washing and the daily use of chemicals, scalps all over the world are stripped of the natural oils that is the foundation of beautiful, healthy hair. The constant fight to keep excess oil at bay has resulted in near obsessive scrubbing, lathering and stripping which, ironically, only makes the problem worse. No-one like greasy hair, but newsflash: oil is not the enemy.
Oil balancing is all about the ‘Law of Similars’: keeping the scalp calm, soothed and moisturised so that it knows there’s no need to produce extra oil. All of that overproduction of sebum is just your poor body trying to help! The more you strip and dry out, the more oil your scalp will produce and the cycle continues. Tabitha James Kraan Organics products are made using only natural ingredients that are extra gentle on the scalp and hydrating every step of the way. With a little support from our organic hair products, your scalp will find it’s natural balance and in turn, start producing stronger, glossier and more manageable hair.
How Will Oil Balancing Affect My Hair?
So, we now know that through oil balancing, you’ll get a happy healthy scalp and from a happy healthy scalp comes happy healthy hair, but what does that really mean? Keeping the correct moisture balance helps to strengthen and build up long-term protection for each strand. Natural oils, like the TJK Organics blend, are readily absorbed into the hair lengths unlike synthetic oils which sit on top, coating rather than penetrating and healing from within. The result? Hair with life, lustre and buoyancy. Hair with deep, rich colour and a varnish shine. Hair that is hydrated, protected and smoothed without being weighed down. Sounds good, right?
