If you’ve ever known someone who grows bamboo, you probably know that it will quickly take over your yard. Bamboo grows so quickly that it’s not uncommon to see ads trying to give it away before the exponential growth encroaches on neighboring properties.
In fact, bamboo can grow up to 1.5 inches per hour, or several feet in a single day! If you’ve ever wanted to watch the grass grow, we recommend bamboo.
And while your tresses may not grow at quite the same rate, bamboo is amazing for hair growth and strength.
Bamboo contains 70% silica. Why does that matter? Because our bodies lose our natural stores of silica as we age.
Silica plays an important role in strengthening your hair, nails, bones, blood vessels, and connective tissue. Adding silica back in through your hair care routine strengthens your locks and can even increase the circulation in your scalp, helping your hair to grow.
Silica also increases shine and elasticity while decreasing split ends. Yes, please!
Squeaky Clean And Well-Conditioned
Bamboo doesn’t just encourage growth, though. It’s also great for both cleaning and conditioning your hair. Use lots of product or struggle with dandruff? Turn to bamboo.
Bamboo does an excellent job of ridding your hair of dead skin, buildup from the products you use, and environmental contaminants. It’s also an awesome conditioner and even helps repair damaged hair.
Soothe Your Sore Scalp
If you have a dry, irritated scalp, choosing hair care products with bamboo is a smart idea. That’s because bamboo has both anti-oxidant and anti-irritating properties.
Additionally, bamboo helps your hair retain moisture, which is important for both your skin and hair. Rather than drying your scalp and locks, as so many shampoos do, bamboo helps seal moisture in. That means less breakage and less irritated skin.
Safe, Natural, and Sustainable
At Viori, we always ensure our ingredients are safe, natural, and chosen with sustainability in mind. That includes bamboo.
Bamboo has been used and even eaten for thousands of years. Chances are good you’ve eaten bamboo shoots in your Chinese takeout. There are no known harmful effects to using bamboo, and its amazing growth rate means it’s easy to replenish bamboo after it is harvested.
A Superpower For Your Hair
What’s not to love about bamboo? (Unless you’re worried about it crossing property lines, of course!) It’s safe, natural, sustainable, repairs damage, and makes your hair grow like crazy.
Plus, it feeds the pandas. And everyone loves pandas. Sorry, we couldn’t resist. They’re just so cute!
But we digress. Bamboo is a superpower for your hair, which is why it’s among the carefully-chosen ingredients that make it into our shampoo and conditioner bars.
