Spring is the time of the year when we traditionally get rid of things we no longer need and start over. Why not evaluate your hair regimen, products, and overall hair goals and explore new, natural hair care products? There is no better time than now to update your scalp health and haircare routine than when Mother Nature awakens. Seasonal changes call for a fresh renewal of your old haircare routine. Why not introduce skincare-inspired methods and high-performance natural actives to help your natural hair grow and thrive.
Did you know that the scalp functions like soil and fertiliser to our hair, much like Mother Nature’s flowerbeds? The scalp is a rich and diverse microbiome made up of a community of bacteria that play their part in supporting and balancing the scalp’s health. In fact, the natural hair on your head grows underneath the scalp for two full weeks before emerging, implying that we need to care for the scalp in the same way we would nourish the soil.
Beautiful, healthy flowers and plants grow in well-watered, nutrient-rich and regularly weeded ecosystems. In the same way that healthy soil will produce the healthiest and most impressive plant life, focusing on the scalp’s health will cultivate the overall health, condition and growth of your hair.
With the arrival of spring, we would love to focus on some of the most potent and beneficial natural hair care and scalp health ingredients, originating from Mother Nature herself. The MONPURE London range is full of results-driven plant-based actives that are clinically tested and formulated to nourish, fortify and restore balance to the scalp, which is the starting point for healthy natural hair growth regardless of hair type.
MONPURE’s plant-based natural haircare wonders
Among MONPURE’S wide range of plant-based solutions, we want to highlight four haircare wonders that cultivate the ultimate condition of the scalp and hair. The good-for-your-hair-and-scalp ingredients are:
ALOE VERA: Described as a wonder plant, aloe vera is one of nature’s miracles due to its healing and hydrating qualities. This cactus-like plant grows naturally in hot, dry climates – across Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States – and has been used for its medicinal properties by many cultures for millennia. For centuries, the gel and juice found inside the aloe plant have been a well-known remedy to treat a range of skin conditions and ailments. The healing powers of Aloe Vera are so powerful and comprehensive that the ancient Egyptians did not coincidentally call it “the plant of immortality”.
So, what are the benefits of aloe vera for the hair and scalp? The fresh juice obtained from aloe vera leaves contains more than 160 different nutrients. These include ingredients like vitamins A, B-complex, C and E, minerals (calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, etc.), amino acids (lysine, threonine, valine, phenylalanine, tryptophan, arginine, leucine, etc.) and enzymes. Aloe vera is also full of polysaccharides, famed for their powerful hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties. The succulent plant also reduces transepidermal water loss, locking in moisture to dry scalps and soothing inflammation and irritation.

WITCH HAZEL WATER: This plant is native to eastern North America and Eastern Asia. Witch hazel water refers to the liquid extract that is distilled from the plant itself. Witch hazel extract is brimming with polyphenols, tannins, and natural plant compounds known for their health-promoting properties. This natural astringent can address a range of problems because it exhibits powerful antioxidant, astringent and anti-inflammatory properties.
Witch hazel is a particularly beneficial scalp care ingredient for those with an oily, inflamed and sensitive scalp. Thanks to the astringent qualities of witch hazel, it is great for decreasing oil in your scalp. It also helps balance your skin’s sebum production to prevent your hair from getting oily and greasy in between washes. Scalp inflammation manifests in several ways: redness, scaling, itching, pain, and even flaking. As an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory ingredient, witch hazel is one of the best natural remedies to treat itchy or irritated scalps.

ALLANTOIN: Allantoin is extracted from the root of the comfrey plant, a medicinal flowering plant native to Britain and extending throughout most of Europe. One of the main benefits of Allantoin for hair is the keratolytic properties that allow it to dissolve the materials that hold skin cells together and enables the outermost layer of the scalp to shed or slough off more easily, which creates a smoother scalp surface. This makes it easier to remove inflamed, flaky, irritated skin cells. Allantoin makes it easier to remove that flaky scalp while moisturising and soothing the new scalp underneath and retaining moisture.
It also improves the elasticity and softness of hair, giving it a glossy effect, moisturises the hair and scalp, and helps the hair and scalp hold on to moisture.

PUMPKIN SEED EXTRACT: Pumpkins are believed to originate in Central America over 7,500 years ago. A rich source of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, minerals, and more, it is thought to be an effective and natural hair loss solution.
Pumpkin seed extract has been scientifically proven to block the 5-alpha reductase enzyme that produces DHT, a byproduct of testosterone that causes hair loss. It initially targets the hair growth cycle’s catagen (transition) and telogen(resting) phases, working to minimise excess shedding. It also boosts the growth of new follicles, leaving the telogen phase and entering into a new cycle of the anagen (growth) phase. This powerful extract also stimulates follicles, delivers nutrients and boosts circulation to the scalp.

Elevate your hair and scalp routine this spring and enhance your hair’s natural beauty
Here is something everyone should know: your hair deserves just as much TLC as your skin does. The skinification of hair movement is definitely here to stay. The logic here is that the same ingredients that make your skin glow can also do wonders for your hair regardless of your hair type.
Just like your skin, environmental aggressors such as sun, wind and pollution can take a toll on your locks, rendering them dull, dehydrated and lifeless – therefore it makes sense to give your hair the same amount of love as you give your skin. It is time to start pampering your hair with a thoughtful daily haircare routine, just as you would with your skin.
The arrival of spring marks the perfect time to introduce MONPURE’S natural haircare wonders into your hair and scalp routine. The brand believes the hair’s beauty depends on the health of the scalp and that the latter is still an extension of our skin. For this reason, MONPURE has been transferring all the methodologies, key precious ingredients, and most advanced technologies from skincare to haircare to achieve unparalleled results.
