What's a Cactus?
A cactus is a member of the plant family Cactaceae, a family comprising about 127 genera with some 1750 known species of the order Caryophyllales. The word “cactus” derives, through Latin, from the Ancient Greek κάκτος, kaktos, a name originally used by Theophrastus for a spiny plant whose identity is not certain.

Why using cactus oil for hair
One important beneficial substance produced by cactus oil for hair is omega fatty acids. These particular components help ensure that each hair follicle cycles and recycles through the three stages of hair growth.
Following the final telogen stage when a hair falls from its follicle, the follicle should automatically begin again at the anagen stage, producing a new hair strand. Fatty acids aid in keeping this process active, as a ceasing of functioning between stages three and one most often causes permanent hair loss.
Related to the cactus’s strong water storage capacities, Cactus oil coats hair follicles with needed layers of protection, adding volume and shielding the hair from damage.
Cactus oil From Queen Lynn Brands generally possesses none of the harsh chemicals like alcohol that infuse many hair care products. Harsh substances can strip away protective layers, causing the hair to become dry and brittle. Further, they may attack the hair shaft itself, breaking down its basic structure and destroying the roots.
Why We Recommend Putting Cactus All Over Your Face?
Cactus seed oil contains large amounts of linoleic acid (a fatty acid that is essential in stimulating healthy cell production and turnover), as well as vitamin E (which provides protection and helps skin retain moisture), and flavonoids, which are anti-inflammatory.

❝ Remember that essential oils are not oily like vegetable or fixed oils. They are called “oils” because they are lipophilic or fat-loving and dissolve readily in fatty liquids, but they are not made of lipids. This means that when using essential oils for hair care, they cannot moisturize your hair, nor will they make your hair oily. As a matter of fact, if your essential oils are pure, they may actually be quite drying and will evaporate more quickly than when applied by themselves. This is one of the big reasons why we dilute essential oils in fatty oils and butters before applying them to our skin.❞
