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.
Products containing Carrot Seed Oil: Peppermint Tea Tree Conditioner + Hair Milk, JojOba Monoi Conditioner + Deep Conditioner
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
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
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.

For Dry Hair
5. Mango Seed Butter
High in antioxidants and fatty acids, Mango Seed Butter is perfect for combating dry hair. Its nutrient-rich composition helps to soften and seal moisture into the strand, protecting it from becoming brittle or damaged from environmental factors.

I’m totally an Eden Girl !!! I’m all the way in Jamaica and I purchase your products and have them shipped to me. I alternate between the products and have found that the Coco Shea and Papaya Castor does wonders for me!!! My friends most common comments when they see my hair is “I’m so hating you right now”:)!!
