Tom Redmond, the founder and former owner of the Aussie shampoo brand, guided the hair care company known for its use of native Australian botanicals. Building on his experience with Aussie, Tom Redmond is now the president of Onesta Hair Care.
Onesta’s Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acid Complex is featured in its shampoos and conditioners. The product provides replacements for emollients lost to chemical processing, styling products, and UV exposure.
Emollients, which are found in a variety of natural oils, including coconut, argan, and almond, coat the hair with a protective film that helps it retain moisture and create a full, thick look. Emollients work in the hair with humectants, which attract and absorb water. Common humectants include glycerin, honey, fructose, and agave nectar.
Emollients and humectants do more than protect hair. They also provide an occlusive barrier that smooths and soothes the scalp and helps prevent dryness and itching.
