Shea butter has the ability to soften frizzy hair and make it more manageable has been long exploited by people of its native land. It can be used to just coat the strands of hair or massaged into the scalp. When Shea butter is applied on the hair, it prevents the hair from drying out and becoming brittle, a common problem in hot, windy conditions. It seals in the moisture by coating each strand of hair in a thin, non-greasy layer of fat.
When massaged into the hair, Shea butter helps relieve many scalp problems. On the oily scalp, it helps to reduce excessive oil production by the skin glands. It can moisturize dry scalp and reduce flaking due to dryness. A great advantage of Shea butter is that it doesn’t leave the hair greasy. Also, it can be easily washed off afterwards. Shea butter rejuvenates hair follicles and prevents dry and frizzy hair.
Avocado oil has a nice thick consistency filled with essential fatty acids that moisturize the scalp on a deeper level. Though it’s thicker than most oils, it penetrates into the scalp fairly easily. It’s lubricating properties help reduce a dry itchy scalp.
Scalp inflammation is when your scalp feels dry, painful and looks inflamed. The inflammation cannot be seen with the naked eye but your scalp will feel aggravated and painful to comb. Avocado oil helps to curb scalp inflammation.
Avocado oil stimulates hair growth. Dry damaged hair can be very hard to get back to its original lush state but using avocado oil along with shea butter makes the process much easier.
Kokum butter has many restorative properties. It works well for dry and damaged hair by making the hair root and hair follicles strong. Kokum butter oxygenates the scalp tissue and nourishes the scalp with nutrients. All this eventually prevents hair loss and promotes hair growth too.

It actually moisturizes the hair and scalp while increasing the hydration level and reducing dryness. Linoleic acid benefits hair by stimulating hair growth while staving off moisture loss. Linoleic acid is a fatty acid that controls or keeps moisture in the hair and scalp.
It not only seals in the moisture, but it also absorbs small amounts of water from the air’s humidity to help maintain that barrier of hydration inside the strand and scalp. Apricot seed oil leaves hair soft, shiny, and keeps the strands well-nourished and moisturized.
