Arrow Thin Left Icon Arrow Thin Right Icon

Chloe Zara Hair formulas are rich in ingredients like Mulberry extract, Hibiscus Flower extract and Kakadu Plum seed oil, all of which were chosen in part for their high vitamin C content. Packed with antioxidants and natural collagen, our sunny-hued friend vitamin C is well-known as a brightening skincare ingredient, but it also has benefits for the scalp and hair. Vitamin C can help clarify the scalp with its impressive cleansing benefits, and its extraordinary antioxidant capabilities can help protect your hair and scalp from ultraviolet and free radical damage, and boost shine.

Sources of Vitamin C found in:

Free radical fighter

Vitamin C works as an antioxidant to help neutralise free radical damage, which can in turn help to maintain good scalp health. These annoying free oxygen radicals develop during the day as a result of things like stress, pollution and UV exposure, and are damaging to cellular structures like DNA, lipids, and proteins. This is where vitamin C can swoop in and help, without you needing to do a thing. 

Collagen booster

Vitamin C can also help boost collagen production in the scalp and hair, which can help to strengthen and promote hair health over time. Collagen is a key component of strong hair, making vitamin C a true non-negotiable in modern haircare. Oh and by boosting collagen, vitamin C may even help to promote hair regrowth – studies are still underway.
