Hair Care Tips

It helps sustain hair growth, and it can relax one’s mind through its aromatherapy properties. Oil massages can stimulate circulation in your head (especially good for students!). Hair oils that are made with cold pressed oils have the power to penetrate the hair cuticle and help rehydrate the hair and smooth the cuticle. It can also help replenish the protective oils on the outside of your hair. These oils help guard against heat damage and breakage. They also reduce the scalp itchiness that are relatively frequent in dry winter months.
