Collected from Sicily’s only volcano, the volcanic water from Mount Etna is abundant with various natural minerals, each providing endless benefits to solve common hair problems. Minerals such as iron, selenium, copper, and zinc are invaluable to add shine, brilliance, and smoothness to all hair types but are especially beneficial to treated hair.
The tap water that we use to wash our hair is filled with impurities and chemicals that can cause hair to become dull and brittle. Chlorine and calcium are two of the most harmful elements found in tap water, but these chemicals can be broken down and removed by 100% pure volcanic water used in Lavacqua Final Rinse. The volcanic water not only removes these impurities, but it leaves behind minerals that promote hair growth and a healthy scalp.
In addition to the mineral-rich volcanic water, we formulated a blend of 11 botanical elements, each addressing specific hair concerns. These botanical extracts and elements include thyme, coltsfoot, yarrow, birchbark, horsetail, nettle, rosemary, peppermint, lavender, honey, and vinegar. Together, this combination of minerals and extracts is formulated to maintain overall scalp and hair health, promote the growth of healthy and strong hair, and boost circulation in the scalp to stimulate hair growth naturally.
Lavacqua Final Rinse is a 100% natural product that harnesses the benefits of ancient natural resources to provide simple solutions to the most common hair problems today.
Iron is known to boost circulation within the body, carrying oxygen more efficiently throughout the body. An increased supply of oxygen to the scalp helps the hair grow faster and stronger and improves overall scalp health.
Like iron, copper works to increase circulation and rebuild tissues in blood vessels. Copper also plays a vital role in producing melanin, the natural pigment in our bodies. Incorporating copper into hair care helps prevent gray hairs, as well as providing more oxygen to the scalp to speed up hair growth.
Zinc is one of the most well-known minerals for healthy hair. Its role in the body is to build and repair tissues, including hair follicles. A zinc deficiency causes weakened hair follicles, often leading to early hair loss. Zinc is crucial in the process of cell regeneration, and quicker cell regeneration in the scalp means healthier, stronger, and faster-growing hair.
Selenium is renowned for its ability to boost hair growth by destroying a type of fungus known as Malassezia. Selenium also has antioxidant properties, and it is commonly used to treat dandruff. When paired with protein-rich foods, selenium is especially effective in boosting healthy cell regeneration, particularly in the hair.
Thyme is a great ingredient to maintain general hair health, and it works well when combined with other ingredients such as lavender to promote hair growth. Thyme is also often used to reduce dandruff.
Coltsfoot is rich in silica, sulfur, and amino acids, and it has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties as well. It is perfect for those with dandruff, as coltsfoot’s antiseptic properties are known to kill off various types of fungus.
Yarrow has been used for centuries to soothe inflammation and reduce hair loss. It is a natural astringent, meaning that it can help tighten pores on the scalp, preventing hairs from falling out as easily. It also works to remove the buildup of oil and dirt on the scalp, keeping the hair feeling clean and fresh. Yarrow oil is rich in linalool, a moisturizing ingredient that can keep the scalp nourished and hair follicles healthy.
Birch bark is one of the most effective ingredients in controlling dandruff and hair loss – this is due to its antiseptic properties. It kills off several types of fungus and bacteria, as well as any dirt buildup from pollution. Birch bark is also known to boost blood circulation in the scalp, reducing hair loss and preventing premature gray hairs.
Horsetail is a natural ingredient that is rich in silica and antioxidants. The silica in horsetail extract strengthens the hair and prevents thinning by providing the essential nutrients directly to the hair follicles. Antioxidants work to reduce inflammation and irritation in the scalp, creating an ideal environment for healthy hair growth. For those with dandruff or itchy scalps, horsetail can soothe any irritation caused by dryness.
Nettle extract is high in anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making it one of the best ingredients for maintaining overall hair health. It boosts blood circulation and is rich in silica, perfect for those struggling with hair loss or brittle hair. Nettle is great for all hair types, but especially those with oily hair as it helps remove excess oil without overly stripping the scalp.
Rosemary is a common ingredient used to increase hair growth. Rosemary is rich in carnosic acid, an ingredient that has healing properties. It stimulates the scalp, increasing circulation and encouraging faster hair growth. Rosemary can be used on balding areas on the scalp to stimulate new hair growth and encourage healthier hair follicles.
Peppermint is well known to boost blood circulation, stimulating the scalp for faster, healthier hair growth. It has anti-inflammatory properties, helping soothe itchy and irritated scalps.
Lavender is one of the most popular natural remedies for a variety of skin and body problems. Lavender has antiseptic and soothing properties, making it perfect for soothing irritated scalps while killing harmful bacteria and fungus. It also works to promote hair growth by stimulating hair follicles.
Honey has always been a favored natural ingredient as it is well known for its moisturizing and antioxidant properties. It is a humectant, meaning that it bonds with water molecules to moisturize the hair without clogging pores. Not only does it moisturize the hair, but it also locks in the moisture from the roots so that the hair doesn’t dry out again quickly. Honey also acts as an emollient, restoring shine and smoothness to the hair.
Vinegar is used as a deep cleansing agent to remove the stubborn buildup of dirt and oil on the scalp. With these impurities removed, the hair is smoother and less likely to become tangled. Vinegar also boosts blood circulation, promoting healthier hair follicles and better cell regeneration for hair growth.
