Shea butter, of course, is great to use on your skin but did you know that it’s also nourishing to the hair and scalp as well? Our Shea butter is 100 percent unrefined, cold-pressed, and rich in antioxidants and vitamins to help nourish and strengthen the hair for beautiful results. Shea butter acts as an organic natural solution for retaining moisture by creating a barrier against moisture loss.
Shea butter is tremendously rich in fats that can soften the hair greatly. But many people use Shea butter in their hair for its ability to nourish the scalp, restore hair follicles, and strengthen the hair at the root. People who suffer from eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis of the scalp may benefit from the anti-inflammatory properties of Shea Butter as it helps to soothe and relieve symptoms.
Coconut oil is one of the most popularly used oils for providing solutions to various hair, skin, and beauty needs. Coconut oil is the only natural source that contains the richest source of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) that contain special antimicrobial and antibacterial properties to help nourish a dry or damaged scalp. Unlike most natural oils, coconut oil has the ability to penetrate the hair follicle and can help prevent protein loss in the hair. This is why so many people choose coconut oil as a staple in their beauty routine because it nourishes the hair without weighing it down.
Coconut oil has also been known to help boost hair growth and improve the elasticity or bendability of the hair. If you have an oily scalp or overproduction of sebum, coconut oil can help balance the amount that your scalp produces and remove build-up. Essentially, coconut oil is best for those whose hair may be lacking in protein or have difficulty retaining protein for whatever reason. This makes it especially ideal for those with fine, thin, or limp hair.
Argan oil is produced from the native Argan tree. The trees are indigenous to Morocco. In fact, there is an entire forest of argan trees that have been declared as a Biosphere Reserve by the United Educational Scientific and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO) because of the unique healing and nutritional properties found in the Argan tree. The oil is extracted from the small nut that is found in the fruit of the Argan tree.
Argan oil has gained popularity in the last few years and termed as “liquid gold” because of the beneficial vitamins, nutrients, and fatty acids that make it extremely nourishing for both the hair and skin. Argan oil has been proven to soften the hair, making it more lustrous and silkier. What makes this oil so beneficial is that it’s rich in antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins A, C, and E, and linoleic acid. When applied to the hair, not only does it condition the hair but it can help tame flyaways, frizzy hair, and help treat and prevent split ends.
A cross between water mint and spearmint, peppermint essential oil is native to Europe and the Middle East but can now be found growing all over the world. The essential oil is extracted through steam distillation which protects the integrity and healing properties of the oil.
Peppermint oil has many beneficial properties for the hair and scalp. When applied to the scalp, it produces a cooling sensation as it invigorates and nourishes the scalp. Keep in mind that peppermint oil is desensitizing and should never be applied to the scalp or skin without the use of a type of carrier oil. When peppermint oil is used properly, it can assist with many common hair and scalp issues such as dandruff, dry and itchy scalp, the overproduction of sebum, hair loss, hair growth, and more. The oil won’t make your hair oily or weigh it down so it’s perfect to use on all hair types including those with fine, low-density hair.
