Who doesn’t dream of a head of long, lucious, shiny locks? As a young girl, one of my favourite pastimes was to put a long brown towel on my head and pretend I was Crystal Gale, and of course I’d switch it up when I could find a yellow towel and run around as Rapunzel. My desire to have hair like this still runs strong as an adult. A lot of factors such as hormones, the aging process, medications, childbirth, weight loss and certain illnesses can leave us with dull, thin, lack luster tresses. People around the globe spend billions of dollars per year in pursuit of thickening, lengthening, strengthening and obtaining the hair they dream of. At Maple Organics, we developed an oil that works as a natural rogaine for the scalp and as a serum for maintaining healthy hair! I also hear it works wonders for an unruly beard. Three in one here ladies and gents!
Our Rejuvenating Hair Oil is packed with clean organic oils that stimulate the scalp. One main ingredient, nigella sativa (black cumin seed oil), has a very high concentration of thymoquinone, which is a powerful natural antihistamine. Antihistamines are often prescribed to alopecia patients to help hair regrow. When applied to the scalp, nigella sativa will reduce inflammation, stimulate hair growth and reduce any flakiness and sensitivity.
Another powerful ingredient in our hair oil is sacha inchi. It is rich in omega 3, 6 and 9, which are all essential for healthy hair. Another benefit of sacha inch is it’s antioxidant properties and ability to lock in moisture to the hair and scalp. It regulates oil production and alleviates scaly and irritated scalps from eczema and psoriasis, in turn helping new hair growth. Also containing grapeseed oil, camellia oil and jojoba oil, all packed with nutrients and vitamins such as flavonoids, linoleic acid, vitamins C, B and E, along with copper and zinc, which are essential for strengthening hair from within and preventing hair loss.
There are a few ways to use our hair oil to get optimum benefits and results.
You can massage the oil into your scalp and then distribute with our natural wooden comb a few minutes before you are headed to the shower to wash your hair. Let it sit for a few minutes so all the goodness can soak into your scalp, then shampoo and condition as usual. I like to really let the oil be exposed to my scalp for as long as possible so on nights when I know I will be washing my hair in the morning, I apply and massage into my scalp at bedtime and sleep with the oil in my hair. This allows it to really work and stimulate my scalp and get the follicles nourished and healthy to allow that new hair to grow.
If you are one of the lucky ones with a clear healthy scalp and a full head of hair, a few drops of our oil can be used on the mid to ends of damp or dry hair before and after styling to maintain health and seal in moisture. Keep frizz and flyaways at bay and increase shine with regular use.
Give it a try and you’ll be well on your way to healthier, stronger, fuller hair with the use of our oil, without any nasty side effects or chemicals that are present in prescription hair growth remedies.
