Flax: a plant with numerous properties for the hair

Flax flowers are used in cosmetic preparations and offer many benefits. The extract of this flower is an excellent ally in beauty routines. It is used for its moisturising and softening properties. With its scentless, bright blue flower, this plant lives for a very short time.
It only opens its petals for a few hours before withering at daybreak. Therefore to admire it, you have to be up very early in the morning. It is used for the well-being of the skin and hair in the production of certain cosmetic products. Flaxseed is also known to have many health benefits. At Klorane, this natural active ingredient has been selected to take care of your hair.
What flax-based products does Klorane offer?
As previously mentioned, flax can be used in various cosmetic products for its nourishing and softening properties. At Klorane, there is a specific flax-based range designed specifically to care for the hair. First of all, the flax selected by the brand is grown on our own land, in the Tarn region of France through certified organic farming. This range includes a shampoo, a conditioner and a spray. It’s important to know that the use of a flax-based product for fine or flat hair primarily helps to restore volume, thanks to the mucilages contained in this natural active ingredient.
These mucilages will envelop the hair in order to thicken it. Klorane's flax-based shampoo will add volume, while maintaining an ultra-lightweight texture.

This spray will loosen up the roots and provide more volume without weighing down the lengths. Don't worry about the texture—this styling spray doesn't leave the hair feeling greasy or hard. On the contrary, the hair is left feeling more supple and lightweight. Also, this flax-based product makes blow-drying easier and can therefore be applied before using a heated styling tool.
