Is Pequi Oil The New Moroccan Oil For Your Hair?
What is Pequi Oil? Pequi is a Brazilian edible fruit (Caryocar brasiliense), sustainably harvested for its oil in the Amazon Rainforest. It is a pale yellow mesocarp oil often used in food, cosmetics, and medicine.
Sephora recently released Couture Colour Pequi Oil online and in-stores. The treatment is rich in moisture-restoring antioxidants, Vitamins A and E and proteins to help you get softer and shinier locks. Similar to Argan oil (Moroccan Oil) in that it is lightweight, fast-absorbing and strengthening, helping to seal the cuticle. The oil revives hair, making it softer and reducing frizz and flyaways. Those with color-treated strands will also reap brilliant benefits, as it protects color from fading and adds noticeable shine.
Similar in price to Moroccan Oil, Couture Colour’s Pequi Oil is $32 for a 2 oz. bottle. Definitely worth the price if you want soft, smooth hair. Also, this may just be a good treatment to add to your beauty regimen, especially if deep conditioners don’t work for you, or if you need an extra product to help lock in moisture.
