Fresh Hemp Seed Oil
Cold-pressed from the best, our hemp seed oil is made from (you guessed it) the hemp plant. As you probably know by now, hemp does not contain the active ingredient of marijuana (THC) and so it is not psychoactive. But it can still take your hair on a wild ride!
Hemp for hair has many potential benefits including promoting hair growth, moisturizing, thickening, and providing shine, and even reviving damaged hair! This is probably due to being rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Macadamia Nut Oil
Macadamia seed oil… now that’s nuts! But seriously, this oil comes from the nuts of macadamia trees. Liquid at room temperature, this oil is rich in fatty acids, potassium, and palmitoleic acid which makes it a great ingredient in haircare products for smoothing the hair.
This multipurpose ingredient has been shown to strengthen hair, smooth hair, and even make curly hair more manageable. Move over, coconut oil, there’s a new sheriff in town.
Aloe Vera Leaf (Aloe Barbadensis) Juice
Not just good for sunburns, aloe leaf juice is a major player when it comes to hair health. It has even been known to promote hair growth!
As a medicinal agent, aloe combats excessive oil build-up and dandruff on the scalp, while eliminating bacteria growth. Its chemical composition is similar to keratin (the natural protein responsible for hair growth) so it’s no wonder aloe leaf juice has extremely positive effects on the hair.
This powerful ingredient also adds strength and shine to the hair while antimicrobial properties help the scalp to heal. The composition of aloe includes amino acids, enzymes, hormones that help with wound healing and antiinflammatories, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal agent, and essential vitamins.
Now we’re wondering why all hair products don’t contain aloe!?
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein
This one’s not for eating! Hydrolyzed wheat protein is an important addition to hair care products because of it’s super powerful ability to retain moisture, and adding volume while smoothing the appearance.
Kola Seed (Cola Nitida) Extract
Derived from the kola nut in the African rainforest, Cola seed extract contains caffeine and has stimulating, astringent, and anti-irritant properties, making it an excellent addition to any hair care product.
Contrary to popular belief, cola seed extract is not just used for flavoring your favorite fizzy beverages. The antimicrobial effects of this extract make it a powerful and effective ingredient in maintaining a healthy scalp and hair.
White Ginger Lily Root Extract
Native to Hawaii, and aside from smelling absolutely divine, the white ginger lily (or awapuhi) has many uses. In our case, we use the juice of the mature seed as a hair treatment.
White Ginger Lily root is used to keep hair healthy while moisturizing and leaving a pleasantly smooth feeling. Some have even noted an improvement in the thickness of their hair after use.
Paullinia Cupana (Guarana) Seed Extract
Chances are you’ve seen this one listed on your trusty can of energy drink. Not into fizzy, sugary, caffeine? No worries, guarana does way more than providing an energy boost.
This native Brazilian plant is found in the Amazon but has made its way to North America to be used in both beverages and hair care products.
Rich in antioxidants and antimicrobials, guarana can significantly improve the health of your hair and scalp.
Ilex Paraguariensis (Yerba Mate) Leaf Extract
Another extract that is Not Just For Drinking ™ yerba mate has many powerful properties.
The caffeine and antioxidants make it both excellent to ingest (not in the form of shampoo, obviously) and apply topically. The green tea in yerba mate helps produce hair growth, and caffeine can also restore growth/prevent loss.
Yerba mate is added as it provides a natural shine while the antioxidant properties prevent cell damage to keep hair healthy.
So, what’s the tea on yerba mate? Drinking it will certainly benefit your hair and immune system but of course, applying it directly will be even more powerful.
