What Is Panthenol & What Can It Do For Hair

At Nourish Beaute, our hair growth products use a variety of proven hair-healthy ingredients that all play different roles. Some ingredients are in our products to help hair to grow faster, whereas others help to thicken the hair shaft. Others, still, help to nourish hair by adding luster and moisture, and panthenol is one of those shine-inducing ingredients that shows up in a few of our products.

Panthenol is a powerful ingredient used in many hair and skin products you see at the store. Also called provitamin B5, panthenol binds with the hair, allowing it to continue working even after you wash it off. A provitamin differs from a typical vitamin, wherein it is converted to vitamin B5 only after it binds with other molecules.

Unlike other vitamins, panthenol has a mirrored molecular structure, rather than identical molecular strands. We won’t get into the exact science, but this mirrored structure means panthenol can do double duty and will have different functions based on the products it is blended into. In shampoos and conditioners, panthenol works as a humectant, whereas in other products it might have different roles.

A humectant is an ingredient that helps skin and hair draw in moisture and retain it long after that product is washed off. Humectants are found all over nature, with some of the most common naturally occurring ones being honey and aloe.

The Benefits Of Panthenol For Hair

When used in hair products, whether a hair growth serum or a conditioner, panthenol both penetrates the shaft to encourage moisture retention and coats each strand of hair in a thin film to create a smooth, shiny finish with extra volume.

There are some rumors that panthenol leaves a waxy coat on hair that weighs it down and makes it greasy. However, when you look at the molecular structure of panthenol, it is completely different from that of waxy substances. Hair care experts agree that if your hair is left waxy after using a product with panthenol, it is likely due to other ingredients in that product and not panthenol
