Today, most individuals arm themselves with multiple hair supplies like high-end shampoos, conditioners, treatments, and creams, much of which lay on top of the hair and help only temporarily, if at all. Alcohol-based sprays, gels, and mousses dry, damage, and split the ends of hair we so desperately try to grow. Daily washing strips our scalps of natural oils and we attempt to replace them with unnatural chemicals, which go on our bodies, down our drains and into the environment. The entire process is harmful to our hair, our health and the Earth.
Hair loses essential oils as we age.
Oil glands shrink over time. Youthful chemistry allows oil to easily move down the hair follicle, but as we age, we simply don’t produce as much oil. The older we get, the more important it is for us to add oils to return that necessary moisture and maintain healthy hair; the key is to know which oils are helpful, not harmful.
