All Natural Beauty: MOP Lemongrass Lift

Posted by Ellen on Wed, 04/30/2014 - 12:00 AM

Could there be anything more depressing than fine, dull, limp hair? Ok, yeah, there can. But when you’re dealing with a head of lackluster hair, well, it’s upsetting. Frown no more though, because we’ve got the perfect boost: Lemongrass Lift by Modern Organic Products (MOP)!

                                           

MOP is all about designing modern, simple solutions for the cleansing, treatment, and finishing of all hair types. To them, the products you put on your head are just as important as the products you put in your body, which is why they relay on natural, organic ingredients to provide nutrition for healthy hair and scalp, as well as protection from environmental elements.

 LEMON GRASS LIFT FOR ROOT VOLUME AND STYLE PROTECTION 8.45 OZ

 

As for their Lemongrass Lift, this lightweight spray is infused with certified organic lemongrass, grapeseed, and gingko extracts. In just a spritz or two it increases root volume, without leaving behind an oily or sticky film. Plus, the scent alone can do wonders for a mood boost!

 Simply towel dry hair, spritz the spray on your roots and gently run it through your tresses with your fingers, then blow dry for optimal volume and styling support.

All Natural Benefits

Lemongrass oil is rich in antioxidants that can strengthen the hair follicles, possibly replenishing thinning or weak hair. It also contains natural antiseptics that protect the scalp and follicles from environmental elements.

Gingko is known to increase circulation and Japanese researchers believe an increase in blood flow to the scalp can stimulate hair follicles. The researches conducted a study in which 50 participants washed their hair with Ginkgo Biloba shampoo and found the herb to reduce hair loss rates in participants.

Blackberries are bursting with Vitamin C, which is responsible for collagen production contributing to strong hair. It’s been found that applying oils from the fruit to the scalp can add instant volume, shine, and bounce.

 

Why we Love it!

Aside from the scent, and of course the all-natural benefits, Lemongrass Lift actually lifts away heavy pollutants.

 Oh, and it turns out apple cider vinegar and wheat protein, which have been infused into the spray, provide thermal protection. Seriously, who knew?!
