HOW DOES OXYGEN HELP WITH HAIR GROWTH?
Updated: Mar 17, 2021
Man needs food, air and water to survive. Oxygen is present in the air we breathe and water we drink, thus supports life. It is also the basis of our body’s metabolism processes, allowing the human body to transform carbohydrates, fats and proteins from food into energy.
Many of us suffer from a lack of oxygen due to air pollution, lack of exercise, shallow breathing and bad diets, which cause a decrease in the body’s ability for oxygen absorption. On the other hand, factors such as stress also increase the body’s need for oxygen, resulting in bodily tiredness and premature ageing. As our cells are deprived of this vital element, our immune systems are weakened and cells become more susceptible to stress and infections.
Oxygen provides the fuel that is needed to build hair. Without enough oxygen, it can make us sluggish and irritable, and our skin absorbs oxygen like a sponge, even on our heads. Therefore, inhaling oxygen-enriched air is important because oxygen energises and revitalises body and mind, preventing cell degeneration and helps with cell regeneration, as well as improving how your skin and hair look. Of course, it helps with hair growth through the following ways.
1. Reduces hair loss
Hair is the second fastest growing tissue in the body. The dermal papilla cell in hair is responsible for hair growth and is therefore the most important part of the hair follicle. Dermal papilla cells must be in direct contact with the blood capillaries because the papilla's where the new hair follicles cells are made and in turn, these cells will need an abundant amount of nutrients and oxygen from the blood. With good amounts of oxygen reaching the hair, the chances of having hair loss can be reduced while having new hair growing.
2. Revitalizes damaged and weak hair
Since hair contains cells, and every single cell requires oxygen for life, therefore, it is crucial to ensure that the hair receives sufficient oxygen so that cells leading to hair growth can be renewed. With that, oxygen helps to treat the hair inside out, rejuvenating and revitalizing dead and worn out cells can be rejuvenated and revitalized and treating the damages from the cortex to the cuticle. This, in turn, helps damaged and weak hair to improve over time.
3. Helps to improve chemically treated hair
Oxygen helps to clean the scalp, nourishes and deeply oxygenates the hair. It aids natural hair rebirth by stimulating the growth of healthy hair, as well as revitalizing weak hair damaged from bleaching, perms, dyes while creating the conditions for brighter, stronger and thicker hair.
4. Clears dandruff from hair
Dandruff is a harmless but chronic condition that occurs when the scalp becomes dry or greasy and produces white flakes of dead skin appearing in the hair or on the shoulders. It can be embarrassing for those who have it. However, it can be successfully treated and managed. By ensuring sufficient oxygen to the hair, it helps to normalize the sebaceous secretion in the scalp, which is helpful to clear hair from dandruff.
When oxygen intake is reduced, the body’s oxygen transport system can be disrupted and less oxygen is available for transportation to the cells in our body.
Oxygen Scalp Therapy is the perfect solution for natural hair growth. By infusing oxygen directly to hair cells, this exclusive treatment gives the scalp the oxygen it needs to regenerate, helping to boost the body’s natural hair growth for a healthier scalp and hair.
The treatment also helps to restore the scalp and hair to a balanced healthier state.
