Jojoba is a very valuable plant of Chinese Simmond, its native land is North American deserts. But the most valuable (in any case, for me) was jojoba oil, which is produced from the fruits of this shrub.
The unique properties of jojoba oil
Amino acids, which are part of the oil, are very similar to collagen. In this regard, jojoba oil has excellent penetrating ability, has a moisturizing effect on the skin and hair, but it does not weigh down the hair and does not leave them with oily sheen.
Therefore, I also liked this hair care product, since most oils are very difficult to wash off the hair, and an unpleasant greasy look will please few people.
Jojoba oil is a great helper in solving the problem of hair loss at home, moreover, this oil does not leave any smell, unlike similar well-known means (onions, pepper and mustard).
How to store?
In no case does not need to store the jojoba oil in the refrigerator, otherwise it will become too hot and it will be difficult to apply it to the hair. This oil is quite suitable for storage at room temperature, as it is resistant to rancidity.
