Panthenol is often referred to as the -beautifier- according to its effect in a variety of ways. Panthenol works by improving effects of hair elasticity, moisture retention and flexibility.
According to the PHOENIX LEAVE IN HAIR CONDITIONER, Panthenol can increase your hair diameter up to 10 percent also can improve damaged hair.
Panthenol has similar characteristics to humectants, according to Phoenix. Humectants moisturize your hair.
Panthenol is a derivative of vitamin B5. Panthenol behaves in some ways more like a protein than a vitamin. When you cover your hair with a PHOENIX HAIR MASK containing Panthenol, the ingredient penetrates the hair shaft, and helps to improve moisture retention.
