Feed Your Hair: 5 Natural Ingredients You Need To Know

Ever wonder what the actual benefits are of the ingredients listed on your favorite products? We’re not just talking about the “hot” ones that everyone has come to know and love, such as Coconut Oil or Shea Butter, but those that tend to be less talked about; the ones whose names may sound familiar, but their exact purpose is not so clear.

As always, we’re here to help! Highlighting a few lesser known ingredients from our own formulas, we’re sharing what it is that makes these underdogs so great. 

 



For Scalp Conditions

 

1. Carrot Seed Oil

Vitamin and antioxidant-rich, this vegetable oil does an amazing job at hydrating both the scalp and hair. It increases circulation and alleviates flaking, rash, and itchiness due to skin conditions on the scalp. Carrot Seed Oil also protects the hair shaft, preventing breakage.

2. Vitamin E 

Amazing for healing irritated or scarred skin, Vitamin E is the perfect component for treating a flaky scalp. It penetrates and repairs at the root while also increasing circulation. It reduces breakage as well! Implement a little into your routine and experience a decrease in shedding and an easier time retaining length.

3. Aloe Vera

Due to its cool and soothing nature, this green, leafy plant is most commonly known for its ability to treat skin irritations. This quality makes it an excellent choice for healing a dry and itchy scalp. Aloe Vera has properties that break down dead skin + product build up that can block hair follicles from growing. 

Aloe can also help condition the hair. The plant is packed with vitamins and minerals that are incredibly moisturizing to the entire hair shaft. Whether applying directly from the leaf, or in juice or gel form, it maintains all its beneficial properties.

For Hair Growth

 

4. Acai

This superfood is packed with vitamins such as A, C, + E, and it contains omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. It’s also made up of many of the B-complex vitamins that are essential to natural hair growth.  All of this goodness promotes a healthy environment for strands from root to tip and helps to reduce overall thinning + breakage.
