Use THIS Oil for Stronger, Longer Natural Hair!


by Emilia Obiekea of AdoreBotanicals.com

Sea Buckthorn oil is highly prized due to its great abilities to grow hair, heal damaged skin and reduce symptoms of skin and hair conditions. This oil is dark and beautifully rich. It contains beta carotene (contributes to its orange-red pigment), tocopherols (vitamin E), essential fatty acids (such as: linoleic, Oleic, Palmitic, Stearic) and phytosterols. Just like coconut oil, it solidifies and liquefies depending on the temperature. It is highly concentrated so a little goes a long way. Never use it straight. Although it is a not an essential oil it is best to treat it as one. Simply diluted in another carrier oil and it is ready to use.

Sea Buckthorn Benefits
Encourages hair growth
Deters split ends
Reduces hair loss
Increases hair elasticity
Moisturizes dry skin
Soothes itchy/ dry scalp
Minimizes inflammation
Damaged hair

This is the Only Oil Proven to Promote Hair Growth

Fun fact-- our hair is likely to grow at a slower rate during the colder months due to several factors.  Check out this post for the full scoop. One of the main factors I mentioned was the slower rate of blood circulation especially to our extremities, e.g. the scalp, fingertips and toes. Of course once I had learned this I had to figure out a way to combat it, and so I did some research and put together this video, on 4 growth boosting techniques to tackle the winter growth slump. One of the techniques shown in the video was the addition of an essential oil to each and every hair product that comes into contact with my scalp. The essential oil in question? Peppermint oil.
