PROPERTIES OF FLAX
In cosmetics, the volumising properties of the mucilage in flax has proven its effectiveness in hair care products. As guardians of the hair, these fibres, called mucilage, bond in contact with water and expand, providing a volumising effect
Klorane has proven the effectiveness of flax fibres and their benefits on hair volume through biometrological tests on hair strands: the mucilage envelopes the hair and provides volume from roots
