~ but quinoa for my hair? ~

Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe not, but quinoa is the superfood of the century. It’s a yummy, fulfilling, extremely healthy, and gluten free grain. However, one of its greatest traits is that, quinoa is an excellent hair protein for your lovely strands. Who knew you could use something that’s meant to be cooked, as a hair treatment? It’s not exactly like you can make a hair mask out of it, but the market is full of quinoa based hair products that provide amazing benefits for your hair. While most grains are considered low in protein, quinoa has it all. It’s a great source of calcium, magnesium, iron, vitamin A, and best of all, 9 essential amino acids. Since quinoa contains nearly 15% of amino acids, it makes a great ingredient and hair protein. The new trend in the hair care industry is to provide products that contain the hydrolyzed quinoa proteins. Its benefits range from great moisture, to seal the split ends. Aside from that, it has the ability to repair, condition and protect your hair.

Introducing Quinoaplex by ONC, made of the new miracle grain “quinoa”, that transforms hair when hydrolyzed and molecules are then small enough to get through the cuticles of the hair to penetrate into the hair shaft. Quinoaplex by ONC is therefore beneficial because hair is made of 85% Protein which also is called Keratin. Washing hair, color/bleach and/or its exposure to sun, causes loss of protein, thinning of hair (men & women), hair loss and hair breakage.

Quinoaplex by ONC provides:

– lasting shine
– manageability without the need of any gels or hairspray.
– shorter time of hair drying
– decreases hair loss, thinning and breakage
– increases the the lasting of hair color
– soothing irritated scalp
– it allows the hair to be colored and bleached with much less damage more often as the protein that the hair loses, is given back with the hydrolyzed quinoa protein.

Other great benefits of quinoa hair protein are:

It promotes growth
Helps the pigmentation of your hair color
Its minerals are natural hair strengtheners
Protect your hair from environmental damaging agents like air pollution.

Use: Shampoo hair and towel dry. Spray on evenly all over hair and then massage till it lathers. Leave for 10-15 min. Then rinse and condition (leave on for 3 min). You can also spray 4 pumps ( 0.17 fl. oz.) into any chemical box color right before coloring at home. Take it to your salon and ask or insist the colorist to spray 4 pumps ( 0.17 fl. oz.) into  your chemical color or bleach solution. It does not interfere with ratios, developer
or formula time. You can see its effects after one application. But never use immediately after hair coloring. Wait 3-4 days.
