Righteous Roots Oils and Its Benefits
Listed are just a few of the benefits of the 11 oils of Righteous Roots Oils. I tried to cover some interesting things I found, but there is a vast amount of info. & benefits for each oil than what I’m able to list...to list them all would take up too much space. On another note, this product has a patent. I’ve been using this oil since Nov. 2016 and is my favorite oil product...if you scroll down my page you’ll see how much my hair and scalp has benefited.
Note: Not all plats are created equal/ A properly defined botanical of an essential oil will include the Latin name of the genus or type of plant followed by a species description. It’s a better identifier than the simple common name. It’s important to identify the oil specifically by Latin name for safety reasons.
Scientists have observed that hair treated with oil eventually slowed both processes of absorption and diffusion of water from hair fibers, which means less hygral fatigue occurs, which means less stress on strands that could make them more vulnerable. Essentially, this means that, although oil treated hair can’t necessarily gain moisture, it’s able to retain whatever moisture is already existing very well.
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil
Packed with rich medium fatty acids (caprylic, lauric, capric), vitamins, antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal properties & rich in antioxidants. The molecules are quite small which helps with absorption for conditioning and moisturizing benefits. If you have dandruff or dry hair, the fatty acids in the coconut oil help improve these conditions.
When coconut oil is used on the scalp it helps fight infections, fungus, & supports hair growth. According to the Journal of Cosmetic Science, coconut oil out performs sunflower oil and mineral oil and is the only oil that reduces protein loss. The lauric acid has a low molecular weight and is able to actually penetrate the hair shaft. Coconut oil helps to tame frizz by penetrating into the curls.
Ricinus Commmunis (Jamaican Black Castor) Oil
Many of castor oil’s benefits come down to its chemical composition. It’s classified as a type of triglyceride fatty acid and is a mixture of several different fatty acids. The major component is ricineic acid with the remainder being comprised of oleic, linoleic, stearic and other acids.
Castor oil is known for its emollient and lubricant properties as well as film-forming capabilities. The chemical structure helps it act as a humectant, so that it attracts water to the hair.
