Almond Oil – Ability to protect and moisturize hair. When massaged into the hair, almond oil removes the build up of dead skin cells, which alleviates scalp inflammation and allows the hair to grow freely. It also protects and stimulates the growth of existing hair follicles making them less prone to breakage. People with allergies to nuts should use caution when using almond oil and discontinue use if any allergic skin reactions occur.

Aloe Vera Oil – Used to induce cell regeneration, treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne and skin ulcers. Contains vitamin E and C, as well as zinc and polysaccharides, which aid in stimulating epidermal growth and cell repair.

Avocado Oil – Rich in nutrients, amino acids, essential fatty acids, as well as vitamins A, B, D, and E, avocado oil supports healthy growth, shine and smooth texture.

Castor oil thickens hair, promotes hair growth, prevents thinning, moisturizes, helps reduce split ends, helps to tame frizz, prevents scalp infections, and stimulates blood circulation.

Coconut Oil – To promote hair growth, prevent dandruff, moisturize, strengthen hair, thicken hair, and prevent damage. Coconut oil is packed full of saturated fats which penetrate deep into the scalp. This allows the coconut oil to prevent the loss of proteins and replace natural hair oils lost due to daily exposure to toxins and frequent shampooing. Keeping the hair shaft healthy prevents hair loss and may help to re-grow hair. It is a natural emollient, which means that it locks in moisture to each individual hair strand to restore body and shine. It’s a rich source of vitamin E, one of the most important vitamins for healthy hair growth.
