The bamboo plant originated in China, and is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Bamboo’s greatest attribute is its strength – the plant has a higher compressive strength than wood, brick, or concrete. The strength of bamboo is reflected in haircare products as silicone rich bamboo, known to provide a strong foundation for hair. It fortifies to help improve flexibility, leaving hair resilient and less prone to split ends and breakage. By playing a role in removing a build-up of pollutants, body oils, and chemicals on the hair, bamboo extract also adds natural shine and luster to the hair.
