I talk about inositol in details here : https://www.viveos.net/video/NjPCDbCFS9Q/video.html __________________________________________________________________
Watermelon has a higher content in inositol than rice. Inositol increases hair's elasticity and reduces the surface friction of your hair. Therefore, it prevents hair breakage. Once it penetrates your hair, inositol stays in the hair fibre even after rinsing.
Watermelon juice is very high in carotenoids (antioxidants) so it has a protective effect on your hair and skin. Antioxidant treatments help to protect your hair against the damage of external factors such as sunrays, pollutants, water, heat or chlorinated swimming pools. Antioxidants also help biological cells to function properly so that's why it is important to apply the treatment on your scalp for optimal hair growth. __________________________________________________________________
