Calendula Oil is the oil that can be expressed from the Calendula flower, not to be confused with the Marigold. Perhaps not the most popular or recognizable herbal remedy, Calendula Oil has become more prominent in skin care and hair care for its anti-inflammatory properties and strong claims to promote longer, stronger hair and reduce hair fall. This skin calming oil, soothes and heals allowing skin to thrive without irritation and inflammations that prevent hair and skin from thriving. Native to Northern Europe, Calendula is now grown worldwide and used in many treatments for skin conditions. Rizos Curls is thrilled to include this potent natural oil in our formulas, keeping aligned with our focus on the skintification of hair in our product range. We have long felt that the hero ingredients we trust to care for our skin, birthed in nature, will also greatly benefit our hair.
Is Calendula Oil good for your hair?

Calendula Oil for hair benefits
Anti-Inflammatory: reduces inflammation, redness, swelling and topical scalp pain. An inflamed scalp reduces your hair follicles and degrades their healthy ability to see increased growth as any rash, skin abrasion or swelling at the root level complicates the life cycle of the hair follicle. Hair grows from a root at the bottom of a follicle under your skin. In order to visibly see the growth, the single strand will push through your skin and pass by an oil gland. This is near impossible if the skin it needs to pass is agitated, irritated , swollen and angered.
Anti-bacterial: combats bacteria that is responsible for causing skin irritations and conditions that produce pesky flakes & terrible itch at the scalp level. It is known to soothe and heal minor abrasions, burns and irritations on skin.
Moisturizer: moisturizes and hydrates your skin and scalp. It is known to plump parched skin and even add a subtle radiance or shine. Calendula Oil fights itchiness and dryness, especially on the scalp. It helps to counteract the sometimes rough tugging, pressure and other skin inflaming effects of regular detangling, styling and hair maintenance. The delicate skin and hair follicles on your scalp, are kept supple with Calendula Oil, as it helps the skin stay hydrated and moisturized and reduces the strain on the skin.
