Marshmallow powder: what is it? marshmallow powder hair benefits madame president

When we read marshmallow , we often think of large soft candies in pastel colors that melt in the mouth... But, you guessed it, we're not talking about confectionery here! In our case, marshmallow is an medicinal plant known for its emollient action: it softens and softens the skin or hair, which reduces dehydration and dryness. This action can even limit eczema and psoriasis: it is therefore great for limiting itching and beautifying the hair.

In cosmetics, it is the root that is used: dried and crushed, it retains its properties and is rich in mucilage. It is also easy to make yourself, as explained in this article by Mémé dans les nettles (ah, the good old grandmother's recipes)! These make it gel on contact with water, thus forming a perfect paste for application as a mask. Conversely, it is not soluble in oil, so it is best not to overdo it in your marshmallow treatments!

What are the benefits of marshmallow powder on hair and skin?

Sheathing, shine, detangling, revitalization, volume: marshmallow powder is the Swiss army knife of hair care! Its mucilages also make it a great hydrating agent and the best friend of curly, frizzy and frizzy hair: no more frizz, hello well-defined curls, goodbye damaged hair! Marshmallow powder is therefore ideal for moisturizing and repairing masks thanks to the emollient benefits that we mentioned just before. It is also softening, and its action is great for the skin, to which it will provide hydration, soothing and toning. And of course, all these benefits apply to the scalp: no more itchy and irritated scalp.
