We usually don’t equate soybeans with hair. If anything, we normally remember that it exists when we’re ordering sushi or Chinese food [i.e dumplings, fried rice, mixed vegetables, etc.] As a matter of fact I’m getting hungry just writing this post and thinking about ordering some fried vegetable dumplings with soy sauce on the side but I digressed. However, the main ingredient for this sauce can be a great factor in increasing your hair’s health. Think about it, soy sauce is very flavorful and we usually add it to our foods because it’s either missing that oomph or wow factor. So why can’t this ingredient help our hair to have the same wow factor that we are looking for when we’re ordering food. It’s like that sane that married people always say, “Happy Wife Equals A Happy Life”. Well let’s change that to say, “Healthy Hair equals a Happier You”, but enough of my rambling.
Here are 5 Reasons Why Soy Bean Oil & Soy Butter Needs To Be Added To Your Hair Product Line Up
- Soy Bean contains a huge amount of Vitamin E and we all know what Vitamin E can do for our hair. However, for those of you who don’t, let me provide you with some reasons why this statement should already have you running to order some soybean oil & butter off the shelves. Vitamin E has anti-oxidants, which are great for repairing cell damage and improving hair growth. Not only that, it helps to increase hair shine and reduces hair loss.
- Soy Bean also contains Omega 3 vitamins. So what does this do? It nourishes, strengthens, and protects the hair by providing it with proteins/ nutrients that will also help to reduce scalp inflammation and increase cell circulation, in order to stimulate hair growth.
- Plus it has conditioning properties as a result of the fatty acid components that it contains. Meaning, this product can help to lock moisture within your hair with only a small amount. So if you’re like me who does a pre-shampoo routine every time you wash your hair. Then you should consider adding soybean oil to your hair mask or conditioning treatments. Especially if your hair is prone to drying out similar to mines.
- Soy Bean Oil is also a carrier oil which makes it a must-have item. The reason being is when oil is a carrier oil, it doesn’t have to be diluted in order for it to be applied to your scalp. It can be applied topically with no worries of burning or irritation as a result of it not being diluted similar to essential oils.
- Lastly what I love most about this product is that it creates a non-greasy oil/ butter. Meaning you don’t have to worry about your hair potentially leaving smudge stains on surfaces that it touches as a result of your products making it a greasy mess. I’m sure we can all agree that nobody wants to be embarrassed like that so this product is definitely a buy.
Well, that’s it. Let me know if you found this post to be helpful. Also if you are unsure about trying this product out within your leave-in conditioners then do an oil treatment. You can apply this oil to hair for about 15-30 min depending on your hair texture, prior to rinsing it out with lukewarm water. Plus for those of you who are still unsure then check out our YouTube video to see how this butter helped to moisturize and style my hair.
