Does your hair suffer from oxidative stress?

Every day your hair is exposed to stress in the form of light, heat, cold, pollution, chemicals and grime. Cleansing, styling and even your daily grooming routine may be causing your hair to become weak, brittle and dull. Natural antioxidants have an important role to play in your skincare and haircare routine, as they reduce the number of free radicals which may cause oxidative damage. In your hair, this damage could result in a loss of hydration, increasing your hairs permeability and weakening the hair shaft.

Benefits of using Conditioner: 

Stronger healthier hair - as your hairs natural lipid layer is restored so damaged hair cuticles are repaired and sealed.

  • Easier stying - hair is detangled and smooth for easier combing
  • Less Frizz - the electrostatic change on your hair is reduced
  • Hair is protected from environmental factors - heat, cold, sunlight, humidity and pollution
  • Hair structure is improved
  • Hair is nourished and hydrated but not greasy or heavy
  • Scalp is nourished and hydrated
How do Beba’s conditioner bars work to protect your hair?

It all depends on what your hair needs.  Our conditioner bars are formulated with positively charged (Cationic) ingredients to bind strongly to your negatively charged hair fibres. As a result, the conditioning ingredients bond with your hair fibres to provide a very thin protective layer which prevent moisture loss, leaving you with soft, shiny healthy hair.
