Pro Vitamin B5 Benefits for Hair

Smooth, Shiny Hair with Pro Vitamin B5

If you are searching out Pro Vitamin B5 you’ve probably heard that it’s a great ingredient for your hair.

In this blog, I’ll be sharing the benefits of Pro Vitamin B5 for your hair.

I LOVE this hair care ingredient.

Ever wondered how the best hair care products leave your hair feeling smoother, softer and shinier?

It’s all about the formulation. The product formulation is the blend of active ingredients. That blend of ingredients determines the effectiveness and results of the product you are using.

I spent years developing my hair care products. Working with my clients, I tested my hair products on many different hair types in my London salon.

Pro Vitamin B5 is the foundation of my range. It has multiple benefits for the hair and scalp. I include it in every product, including my hair styling products. I consider it a vital ingredient for hair care.

Before I run through the benefits, here’s a brief introduction to my favourite haircare ingredient.

An Introduction to Pro Vitamin B5

Pro-vitamin B5 is a derivative of vitamin B5, found in plants and other foods. Also known as panthenol, it’s useful for healthy skin and hair when metabolised by the body. It’s also used as an ingredient in topical hair and skincare products to condition and soften.

The exciting fact about Pro-vitamin B5 (and this is scientifically proven) is  that it’s able to penetrate the hair cuticle. The hair cuticle made up of many layers and there are very few ingredients that can penetrate the cuticle. Because Pro Vitamin B5 is a moisturising ingredient, it can add moisture at the core of the hair. So when you are using a product that contains Pro Vitamin B5 you are moisturising your hair from within.

Benefits of Pro Vitamin B5 for Hair 

  1. Gets moisture right to the core of the hair. That means it plumps out the cuticle leaving your hair feeling full, thicker and healthy.
  2. It gives hair a smoother surface. That means the light will bounce off your hair for a fabulous hair shine.
  3. It soothes your scalp. What’s good for the hair is good for your skin and the delicate scalp loves this hair care ingredient. It’s good for treating a dry, itchy scalp.
  4. Pro Vitamin B5 prevents moisture loss. Known as a humectant, it’s good at retaining moisture.
  5. It’s lightweight so it gives your hair moisture without weighing it down.
  6. It doesn’t leave any residue on the hair.
  7. Pro Vitamin B5 detangles hair
  8. It has anti-inflammatory properties. That means it can support your scalp for your best hair growth.
