The Coconut Oil serves as a major hydrating element in this treatment, it also:

  • Nourishes the scalp due to its rich fatty acid content.
  • Reduces hair breakage
  • Penetrates the hair follicles for a deep and thorough hydration.
  • Soothes the scalp and prepares it to support thicker hair growth.

Why Castor Oil?

The main benefits of using castor oil are:

  • Higher growth rates of hair: people have reported up to 5 times growth speed of hair after using castor oil.
  • Prevents and Remedies hair loss due to richness in ricinoleic acid content which helps increase circulation to the scalp and improves hair growth.
  • It keeps the scalp pH balanced so the natural oils can be replenished and will aid in undoing hair damage.
  • It contains anti-oxidants to support Keratin in hair and help make it stronger and smoother.
