The word ozone brings us the idea of the layers of atmosphere surrounding the earth that play a vital role in controlling global warming and protecting life on the earth from damaging sun radiations. Ozone or O3 is an odorous blue coloured gas that is present in our atmosphere and is responsible for the existence of life on earth. Keeping its enormous therapeutic benefits in view, various formulations are made incorporating this molecule like:
But rarely do we get the idea of hair protection after hearing ozone or ozonides. However, ozone therapywhich is the procedure involving the introduction of active oxygen or ozonides in the hair or scalp most safely via ozonated hair oils. This therapy using hair oils incorporating active oxygen has recently gained a lot of popularity for delivering the best hair regrowth results.
How Does Ozone Helps In Hair Protection
Unlike the breathable oxygen molecule having two oxygen atoms, ozone has three atoms of this element. The ozonated formulations have the unique ability to release free radicals at the site of application. When such preparations are applied to the scalp, the ozone gets oxidised, thereby forming the peptones on the hair shafts. These peptones bond together to form a protective layer over each strand of the hair and protects the hair from falling and breaking abnormally. The active oxygen species also induce incredible strength in the hair strands.
Following are the benefits of hair ozone therapy:
Strengthens and helps in rejuvenation the hair follicles
Nourishes the scalp as well as the hair strands by increasing the oxygen availability for them
Improves the blood circulation
Helps in minimising the microbial infection spreading on the scalp
Minimises the issues like dandruff, split ends, and frizziness
Helps in retaining the hair colours or dyes for long
Help in preventing hair thinning, hair fall, and scalp itching
Ozone therapyhelps in restoring the hair as well as scalp health which deteriorates due to ageing, unhealthy diet, hormonal imbalance, poor hair care, illnesses/ailments/infections, genetic disorders, pollution and other external factors. All these mentioned factors lead to the dehydration or infection of the scalp in turn causing weakening and damaging the developing hair follicles also.
