Sunflower Oil was my ceramide of choice because of it's availability and benefits for hair. These benefits include:
- The abundance of minerals such as calcium, zinc, and iron. It contains omega fatty acids. As well as vitamins A, D, K, and E. This makes the oil also good for promoting hair health by internal intake. In addition to using it on my hair I used it in several dishes.
- It acts like an emollient which has a softening effect on hair and helps to prevent water loss.
- All of the above help to make the hair soft, shiny, and more manageable by reducing dryness and frizziness.
