So what are ceramides and do you need them in your regimen?
Ceramides are one of 3 naturally occurring lipids aka fatty material found in the hair's cuticle. Not to be confused with Sebum which is found on the surface of the cuticle, ceramides' function in the cuticle is to act as a binder to keep the cuticle layer in place. So why are they important in hair care I hear you ask.
Well as we know the cuticle is the hair strand's defense layer which is why you hear about cold water or acv rinses to close the cuticles after a wash.
Closed cuticles give your hair that shine/sheen that practically screams 'healthy hair' hence closing the door to potential damage that may threaten the vulnerable cortex inside.
