We all know and love Grapefruit for its delicious, pink flesh – not to mention the numerous health benefits it brings. While the fruit itself is an incredible health warrior, not many of us know that its peel is actually packed with more nutrients than the fruit.
Grapefruit Peel or Citrus grandis contains many vitamins vital to our hair’s health, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, pantothenic acid, fiber, copper, potassium, biotin, and vitamin B1. These essential nutrients work together to protect, cleanse, and revitalize the scalp and tresses.
Benefits of Grapefruit Peel to the Hair
Promotes Hair Growth
If you want to get thicker, more voluminous hair, consuming Grapefruit Peel Oil could be the solution you’re looking for. The citrus fruit’s essential oil is extracted from the peel as it contains significantly more nutrients than the pulp.
Grapefruit contains rich amounts of vitamin B1 and flavonoids, a phytochemical that helps improve blood circulation. Applying its peel’s extract on the scalp will help stimulate blood flow to the area. Our hair follicles feed on the nutrients and oxygen coming from the blood, so where there’s enough blood flow, expect to see more hair growth in that area.
We recommend: Oway Volumizing Hair Bath. It contains Grapefruit Peel Oil and other hair growth-promoting ingredients, making it perfect for individuals with thinning hair.
Adds Shine & Vitality
There’s nothing more frustrating than having dull, dry hair. But the good news is, you can always reverse it with Grapefruit Peel Oil. The antioxidant properties in Grapefruit extract help cleanse the strands by stripping off product residues that have built up and coated the hair. The result: shiny, beautiful hair that’s full of life!
We recommend: Oway Glossy Nectar penetrates and rebuilds the hair cuticles that were damaged and dehydrated due to excessive styling.
To many of us, dealing with tangles can be a nightmare, especially for those with long hair. Detangling those pesky twists and knots can be a real struggle, and when done wrong can damage the hair even further.
Tangles happen when the cuticles are damaged and raised, causing strands to get caught up with each other. Grapefruit Peel Oil has excellent detangling power due to the acid present in the extract. It flattens and seals the cuticles, making the hair feel silky smooth.
We recommend: Oway Phytoprotein Mist for its moisturizing and nourishing properties. It not only detangles hair, but it also fortifies hair to prevent breakage and split ends.
Neutralizes Free Radicals
Grapefruit Peel is rich in vitamin C, which makes it an excellent source of antioxidants known for fighting off free radicals. Like Acai Berry, the vitamin C in Grapefruit Peel creates an invisible barrier, protecting the hair and scalp from oxidative stress. As a result, the hair grows thicker, stronger, and healthier.
We recommend: Oway Bio-Rich Water to energize and protect the hair. It is made from Hydrolates, which is water collected during the distillation process of essential oils. A single spray of this product will eliminate all the toxins present due to its high antioxidant content.
Tones the Scalp
Grapefruit Peel is a natural antiseptic and disinfectant, making it a great scalp cleanser. It washes away dirt, impurities, and excess oil that cause dandruff and clog pores, inhibiting the growth of bacteria that wreak havoc on our scalp.
We recommend: Oway Frequent Use Hair and Scalp Bath to keep the scalp balanced and clean. Its formula is gentle enough for everyday use.
With all these amazing hair benefits of Grapefruit Peel, it’s not surprising many beauty companies are incorporating this magical fruit in their cosmetic formulas. The only difference is: at Simply Organic Beauty, we only use biodynamic plants to make sure you’re getting only the purest of every ingredient.
