Macadamia oil closely mimics sebum, the natural oil found in the scalp. It also contains a high amount of palmitoleic acid (an omega 7 fatty acid) which is the main ingredient in sebum.
Macadamia oil contain palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated fat, which promotes the production of sebum in the scalp. This replenishes the follicles, rejuvenating the hair. It also moisturizes and strengthens rough and dry hair.
Macadamia oil contains squalene, which is a natural antioxidant. It helps to reduce the oxidative stress on hair and scalp by preventing the loss of moisture from both.
Proteins in macadamia oil strengthen hair and prevents hair breakage by penetrating the scalp and hair follicles, thus improving its elasticity at the same time.
Vitamin E content in macadamia oil softens, rejuvenates the hair and helps to eliminate frizz by coating the hair shafts.
