Natural oils are a staple in the formulation of hair products. They are such amazing multitaskers, each having such an array of health-promoting functions, that even the most sophisticated laboratories can't create an equal. When used in the hair, they create shine, add suppleness, repair damage, seal the cuticle, soothe the scalp, and more.
Once you understand what they do, they become a powerful tool in the quest for great hair. You can pick up one or two on your next trip to the grocery store and use them straight or mix them into your favorite hair products in many creative ways. If you know which ones your hair responds to, look for products that are formulated with them to see your hair behaving better than ever.
Jojoba oil is a superior quality oil that is closer than any other compound in nature to the human skin oil sebum. There are theories that it can balance the oil production in skin for this reason. You can add a few drops of organic jojoba oil to your daily moisturizer to subside any flakiness and it won't clog your pores.
When it comes to hair, jojoba is excellent for the scalp and helpful in preventing dandruff. Tri Jojoba Hair and Scalp Conditioner is excellent for normalizing oily hair and giving fine hair exceptional body.
