Babassu Oil is a versatile product and even though there are many similar plant oils on the market, it is used most often because of its wonderful properties. Discover the best hair care products – from cleansing to styling.
Babassu Oil (Orbignya Cohune Seed Oil) is obtained from the kernels of babassu nuts of the Attalea Palm tree. They resemble huge bunches, and each of them consists of about 200 nuts. The traditional methods of pressing allowed it to be considered a safe, completely natural cosmetic.
Babassu Oil – properties
It has the form of soft butter that melts at between 20 and 30 degrees °C. This means that it dissolves as soon as it is applied to the skin. In general, Babassu Butter is referred to as an oil because it contains about 70% fatty acids. This is an ideal remedy for low porosity hair. It provides protection against water loss (acts like an emollient) and protects against sunlight as it is a natural UV filter.
Babassu Oil – in cosmetics
Where can you find Babassu Oil?
Babassu oil is widely used in the cosmetic industry. Due to its non-toxic nature, it is willingly used in cosmetics designed for dry and sensitive skin. The concentration of Babassu Oil in various products can be as high as 99%, which means that it can be used as an independent cosmetic. The properties of Babassu Oil also allow it to be used in hair and scalp products because:
- it ensures a perfect level of hydration,
- it has occlusion properties (prevents water loss),
- it strengthens the external and internal structures.

The most important step in hair care is intensive nourishment, in-depth moisturising and thorough reinforcement. Such intensive treatment is only possible with the use of the best oil available on the market which is Nanoil. The product comes in three versions for various hair types:
- Nanoil For Low Porosity Hair (unruly) includes nine natural oils: Pine Oil, Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, Maracuja Oil, Babassu Oil, Monoi Oil and Cupuacu Oil;
- Nanoil For Medium Porosity Hair (frizzy) contains 6 oils rich in omega-7 and omega-9 fatty acids: Macadamia Oil, Argan Oil, Marula Oil, Jojoba Oil, Maracuja Oil and Coconut Oil;
- Nanoil For High Porosity Hair (damaged) comprises 6 vegetable oils with a high concentration of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids: Almond Oil, Argan Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Avocado Oil, Maracuja Oil and Cotton Seed Oil.
Depending on the porosity of your hair (its condition) you can choose one of the three oils and take care of it thoroughly. Nanoil Hair Oils work primarily inside the hair, provides nourishment, moisturising and strengthens keratin structures. They form a light layer on the hair that protects against water loss and harmful agents. Most importantly, oils provide proper care of the scalp and balance all the processes in it. This is why Nanoil Hair Oils comprehensively solve hair and scalp problems instead of just camouflaging them. Thanks to the kerastim & baicapil complexes, they accelerate growth and prevent excessive hair loss. All without overburdening the strands.
Why is hair oiling so important?
This is a necessary stage of hair care routine because no other product will give our hair as much as a natural oil. If it is properly adjusted to the porosity of the hair, it acts primarily as a protective shield. Hair oils help to strengthen the natural hydrolipid layer of the hair and seal its outer structures – scales. No serum, mask or conditioner will ever work such wonders on hair.
Once your hair is provided with the necessary care from within, you must cleanse it thoroughly. A hair shampoo with Babassu Oil will be helpful. It will give your hair a gentle refreshment and will not disturb its water-lipid balance. In this case, a good suggestion is BingoSpa strengthening shampoo with keratin and Babassu Oil. Even though it is recommended for extremely damaged hair with split ends, it will work well for every kind. Keratin is hair’s natural building block so it will always be useful. Babassu oil adds radiance to the hair, smoothes and facilitates combing, which will be useful not only for damaged hair.
Even after washing your hair with the best shampoo, it has a weakened natural protective coating and the scales can be lifted (eg, under the influence of temperature). It is necessary to re-nourish and ensure smoothness. In this case, you can again reach for Nanoil Hair Oil, which does not require rinsing and perfectly seals raised scales. However, you might as well reach for a product that works only on the surface of the hair. The good solution is to use nourishing Biovax Glamour Diamond with Amazon Oils. The product contains Babassu and Pequi Oil. Both of them smooth, add softness and enhance the natural glow of hair. Use according to the instructions to avoid overburdening.
Of course, the final step is styling, although hair treated with Nanoil and nourished by oleo-cream should already look very well. Each of the Nanoil Hair Oils has styling properties and can be used as a substitute for the products that enhance natural curls. In spite of everything, hair likes variety, so at this stage, we can reach for cosmetics designed exclusively for styling. John Masters Organics Hair Pomade is definitely worth mentioning. The cosmetic contains beeswax, Babassu Oil, Olive Oil and Mango Butter. It protects the hair from high temperature, moisturises, facilitates combing and makes a great finishing touch to every hairstyle.
