My Start in the 30 Day Ceramides Challenge

If you follow Jen of Just Grow Already you have probably heard about her 30 Day Ceramides Challenge. I really like this idea, mostly because I recently decided to include ceramides in my regimen by using sunflower oil in my hot oil pre-poo and as a daily sealer. So far I'm enjoying the results and can't wait to see where my hair is after the 30 days.

Ceramides are a fatty lipid that make up our skin and hair. They're basically the glue that holds the hair cuticle together resulting in smoother and healthier hair. If ceramides are missing, the hair is damaged and will look dull, coarse and dry.

Ceramides come in two forms: 1) natural and 2) synthetic. Natural ceramides include sunflower oil, hemp oil, safflower oil, rice bran oil, wheat germ and grapeseed oil. Synthetic ceramides are considered more concentrated than natural and therefore can provide more immediate results when used on damaged hair.

Some benefits from regular use of ceramides are:
  • Smoother, softer and shiner hair as ceramides help the hair cuticles to lay flat
  • Better protein and moisture balance

I decided to participate in this challenge to see how my hair will react to ceramides. After using the sunflower oils for 30 days what will be the results? Will my hair be softer and stronger? Will it tangle less? Will my ends be less dry?

I hoping the answer will yes to all of those questions after the 30 days is up.

If you'd like to liked to participate in the challenge, here are the rules:
  • Incorporate ceramides into your regimen at least one way. Examples: either by sealing with an oil, hot oil treatments, or using a conditioner that contains ceramides
  • Join the sign up list on Just Grow Already
  • Keep track of how your hair is improving from the use of ceramides
  • Share your results. At the end of the month, Jen will do a review post. If you have a blog you'll be able to link your update post to share your results and photos OR if you do not have a blog, you can email Jen your photos and your update and she will include your update in the post

Have you ever tried hair products with ceramides?
