Ozone Treatment

Benefits Of Ozone Treatment For Hair

The inorganic compound called trioxygen, more commonly known as Ozone or O3, is a blue coloured, pungent odorous gas which is a relatively unstable allotrope of oxygen. It is naturally present as a protective layer in the atmosphere surrounding earth that absorbs and inhibits the harmful radiation from the sun from entering the earth’s environment.
This gas can be extracted from air, artificially produced by chemical means or synthesized in a laboratory. Ozone not only eliminates the damaging danger of exposure to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun but is also vital in sustaining life on the planet and has found other commercial, industrial, agricultural, medicinal and therapeutic usages across the continents.
It is used in disinfectants, sanitizers, pesticides, fabric care products, bottled water, halogens, air purifiers, healthcare products, ozone therapy, salon and spa treatments etc.

Ozone therapy for hair has widely been acknowledged for its effectiveness in treating hair and scalp problems like dandruff, hair fall, hair thinning and damage. These hair problems are mainly caused due to factors like ageing, hormonal imbalance, poor hair care, unhealthy diet, illnesses and infections, genetic traits, pollution and other external factors, which generally dehydrate or infect the scalp to further weaken and damage the hair follicles.
Ozone with its unstable molecule containing three oxygen atoms has high oxidising properties and releases free oxygen radicals on being injected in any part of the body like the scalp.
The scalp and hair on being infused with ozone get oxidised leading to the formation of peptones on the hair shaft located in the middle of the strands.
A protective layer, like the ozone layer guarding the earth’s atmosphere, is formed over each hair strand by peptones that safe guard the hair from breakage, damage and fall. This treatment is provided with the help of machines, combs, ozone creams etc in salons, spas, clinics and by dermatologists.
