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.
Cactus oil for Hair And Skin (also known as prickly pear oil or barbary fig oil) is an essential oil containing high levels of nourishing vitamins and minerals.
Desert dwelling cacti are particularly valuable resources for nutrients because they store water and other needed materials inside themselves for long periods of time. This means the cactus are a rich source of nutrients and have even been associated with other health benefits such as improved heart health in some studies.

What are the components of Cactus oil for Hair And Skin that make it so effective?
Tocopherols (Vitamin E)
This component of prickly pear seed oil is similar to cholesterol, as it binds to water. This is great news for our skin—when applied topically, water-binding phytosterols help the skin retain moisture, making for a strong, healthy skin barrier. They also assist in collagen production, keeping our skin youthful and soft, and have even been found to reverse the effects of aging.
Polyphenols are a real powerhouse: Not only do they boast antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties, but they also fight oxidative stress—an imbalance between free radical production and the body’s ability to defend against them. Like tocopherols, they are also free radical scavengers. Polyphenols prevent and treat sun damage, and can help with redness and irritation.

Okay, so you are new to the benefits of cactus oil for your hair, right?
This is the Hair Growth Cycle; The first stage is called anagen and is the active growth phase. Telogen is the resting stage. Catagen is the regression of the hair follicle phase. Exogen is the active shedding of hair phase. Lastly kenogen is the phase between the empty hair follicle and the growth of new hair.
Cactus oil is rich in omega fatty acids. These particular components prove vital in overall growth and development. For hair, they help to 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 lost.
Using hair oil is beneficial because most types contain moisturizing properties, but cactus oil, due to its origin, is arguably a mark above the rest. Like most natural products, cactus oil generally possesses none of the harsh chemicals like alcohol that infuse many hair care products. Further, they may attack the hair shaft itself, breaking down its basic structure and destroying the roots. Using cactus oil for hair may avoid these dangers, while providing a moisturized scalp cleansed of dead skin.
