Three oxygen atoms (O3) bond to form a single ozone molecule. Ozone is present in nature in gaseous form in small traces in the upper layer of the atmosphere, i.e. stratosphere. This gas is known for its protective abilities for humans in numerous ways, especially from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
These days, ozone therapy, which is a hair treatment using ozone molecules, is gaining a lot of popularity among people because of its incredible results. It is said that the main reason for scalp itching and dandruff is superficial microbial infections. Its germicidal potential helps in eliminating skin flaking and itching by killing the underlying fungal and bacterial aggregations without damaging the scalp as well as hair shafts.
Furthermore, such hair therapy also helps greatly in improving blood circulation of the scalp and stimulating new hair follicles, thereby encouraging rapid hair growth. Consequently, there is an appreciable increase in hair density and volume within a few days of its usage. Moreover, it helps in minimising hair fall both in women and men to a great extent.
How Does Ozone Therapy Work For Hair?
The ozone molecules lead to the formation of a peptone covering on each hair shaft, thereby providing individual protection against any kind of damage to every hair strand. It not only stimulates the hair follicles, but also enhances their natural colour, makes them shinier, less frizzy, and diminishes dandruff. Most of the problems associated with hair roots are solved by this therapy by increasing the oxygen levels of the circulating blood in the scalp. This results in increased nutrition and better nourishment of each hair strand. Moreover, it also protects the hair from the damaging UV radiations.
This treatment or therapy can given by dermatologists in many ways like:
The triple oxygen provides peptone covering to hair shafts which helps in maintaining a strong bond between the hair shaft and the external layer of dye. Therefore, it helps in retaining the hair colour for a longer duration with minimum damage.
It can help in the fortification and rejuvenation of the hair follicles as well as hair roots, thereby adding strength to them.
It very effectively manages the problem of hair thinning, hair fall, dandruff, dryness/frizziness etc. by adequately optimising their nourishment and moisturization.
It very effectively diminishes the damage caused by free radicals in the scalp by enhancing the antioxidant effect.
It neutralises the harmful effects of sun rays on the scalp as well as hair.
