Coriander is very common in Asia e.g. for making food. This herb is known worldwide and was used in ancient medicine. Coriander oil has been extracted for thousands of years and it is among the most popular aromatherapeutic oils. It is a great source of nutrients so you should definitely use it more often.
Coriander oil is most often used for reducing stress and tiredness, and treating cold and flu. You can use it for inhalation, massage, bath or aromatherapeutic oil burner. On the other hand, coriander oil has lots of beauty properties so you can apply it directly to the skin or hair.
What is coriander oil composed of?
Natural coriander oil is an aromatic substance rich in many nutrients that are essential for skin and hair. Most of all, these are valuable minerals: potassium, calcium, manganese, iron and magnesium. Coriander oil also contains lots of vitamins, including vitamins A, C, K, as well as folic acid, beta carotene and extra nutrients. No wonder coriander is known as a wonderful herb; it is unquestioned, looking at its composition.
Uses for coriander oil
Coriander oil works for healing digestive system ailments yet you can make use of its antibacterial properties in a completely different way. It is effective in the treatment of acne so it reduces the problem. Coriander oil nourishes and moisturises very well thus delivers amazing results in hair, skin and nail care. Coriander oil prevents hair thinning and stimulates hair growth, which is the effect of its reinforcing properties and increasing blood circulation to the scalp. What is more, the oil has anti-inflammatory qualities so it can soothe irritations.
Essential oils in beauty care
Discussing coriander oil is the first step towards learning more about essential oils in hair and skin care. You must know that essential oils (no matter what plant they are extracted from) can cause irritation. They contain aromatic compounds that can trigger allergic reactions, especially in sensitive skin. It is a far better idea to use coriander oil in aromatherapy. If you really want to use it for hair care, you’d better add it to a different product. It is similar in case of other essential oils. Try to choose products including all-natural, vegetable, unrefined and cold-pressed oils.
Let’s take a look at the best hair care products and their effects. Do they include natural or essential oils?
NANOIL HAIR OILS
There are three of them. Each is composed of a mixture of natural oils that are suitable for a given hair porosity. They both look fancy and bring maximum effects. What is the key? The content of fatty acids and the sizes of their particles. Thanks to such an approach, you can expect full support from Nanoil – oils that work from within.
a) Nanoil For Low Porosity Hair
It contains 9 natural oils. Nanoil For Low Porosity Hair is designed for straight, easily weighed down and difficult-to-style hair that dries very slowly. Thanks to the oil, your hair holds styles and is no longer curl-resistant. It also dries more quickly. Low porosity hair requires non-stop protection that UV filter enriched Nanoil provides. It reduces water loss and keeps hair in shape. The lightweight formula doesn’t weigh hair down; it boosts hair at the roots. Voluminous hair grows more quickly and doesn’t get greasy.
b) Nanoil For Medium Porosity Hair
It is the combination of 6 best oils. Nanoil For Medium Porosity Hair is recommended for wavy, frizzy and dull hair. So far greasy at the roots and dry at the ends hair gains protection against loss of moisture and regains health. Nanoil Hair Oil controls the function of sebaceous glands thus reduces oiliness and dandruff, and reinforces bulbs and hinders fall out. It protects fragile hair tips from splitting. It delivers resilience, smoothness and shine. Say goodbye to frizz caused by dampness.
c) Nanoil For High Porosity Hair
It works thanks to 6 valuable oils. It is a perfect choice for curly, damaged, splitting and over-processed hair. Nanoil works both inside your hair and on its surface – rebuilds damage in keratin structure and seals hydro-lipid layer, locking in moisture. Nanoil Hair Oil regenerates hair, adds bounce, reduces falling out and enhances growth. It takes care of delicate hair ends and scalp thus your hair has no problem with frizz or dandruff.
REDKEN HAIR OILS
Elegantly designed Redken Diamond Oils come in two versions – black and gold. They look tasteful in glass bottles in the shape of irregular diamonds.
a) Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine
The product contains only three natural oils. It is an oil for damaged hair that needs regeneration. It penetrates the hair and activates repair processes: nourishes, rebuilds and reinforces. The oil defrizzes and protects from heat damage. Sadly, the cosmetic is full of quite harmful ingredients whereas the formula is very thick and can weigh hair down. Nevertheless, the product enjoys popularity.
b) Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine Intense
This version is composed of as many as seven natural oils yet they don’t match each other and the needs of hair as number one in the review. Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine Intense is also intended for dry and damaged hair. Regrettably, Redken didn’t design products that would work for different hair types with different problems.
MOROCCANOIL HAIR OILS
The most famous hair oil duet with Moroccan argan oil. It is said they have started the trend for using argan hair oil. That is why Moroccanoils are so popular among women. Moroccanoil is a normal hair treatment.
a) Moroccanoil Treatment Original
The original version of the product. It is intended for all hair types. Its lightweight formula is supposed to deliver healthy looks and silky shine. Moroccanoil Treatment Original has been created to work as a conditioner, hairstyling or fixing product. It fails to provide in-depth action yet brings nutrients, smoothness and gloss.
b) Moroccanoil Treatment Light
The other version is recommended for fine or fair hair. It seems to make no sense. Why buy the oil for fine hair if the original version Moroccanoil Treatment works for all hair types, also fine hair. The product is also designed for nourishing, styling and fixing a hairdo. It adds shine and smooths your hair.
MYTHIC HAIR OILS
They look interesting and are one of the most recommended by women who don’t need an intensive and precise hair care. The range offers four oils; three of them work for hair.
a) Mythic Nourishing Oil
The product doesn’t offer rich ingredients: it is based on two natural oils. The oil is designed for every hair type. It delivers moisture and essential nutrients. The oil is well-absorbed and provides delicate protection from harmful factors. L’Oreal Mythic Nourishing Oil is a lightweight hair oil.
b) Mythic Rich Oil
This version also contains only two natural oils, which isn’t impressive. Mythic Rich Oil is intended for stiff, frizzy and unruly hair. It facilitates styling, conditions the strands, eases detangling, prevents tangles, smooths and adds shine. It is a pity it can weigh fine hair down.
c) Mythic Colour Glow Oil
This product contains twice as many oils as the two other versions. Thanks to four natural components, it is in harmony with colour-treated and bleached hair, providing reinforcement. It protects the colour from fading, increases softness and eases detangling. Sadly, it doesn’t work from within so the effects are only temporary.
