Vanilla is enriched with minerals necessary for hair growth and vitamins including;
B2 riboflavin which boosts keratin. Vitamin B2 or riboflavin is abundant in vanilla beans. It boosts the metabolism of proteins, such as keratin. Without enough riboflavin, keratin synthesis gets affected, and so does your hair.
B5 that maintains pH balance and maintains the condition of your shaft and scalp.
B6 that delivers oxygen to hair follicles from the red blood cells, and pantothenic acid (panthenol) that repairs cuticle damage on every hair strand.
Vanillin, the extract from vanilla beans has antimicrobial properties that can prevent bacteria from irritating your scalp’s pores and the follicles underneath it.
Vanilla extract is also a fighter that can prevent cell damage on your body, especially those found on your follicles. High levels of antioxidants can be found in its extract, which can avert free radical invasion. It can strengthen your tresses, thereby preventing split-ends and strand breakage.
