It has taken me several months to create this hair & scalp balm. I am so glad that I chose to use so many of my favorite infused oils in this balm. The recipe for this balm has the following infused oils: Rosemary, Nettle, and Horsetail. I infuse each herb in Organic Golden Jojoba oil by using the warmth of the sun. I allow the oils to infuse for a total of 4 to 6 weeks. Waiting for my oils to infuse is by far the hardest part of the process but it is so worth it in the long run. Once the infusion process is complete, I drain each oil and then add those oils to my products. Infused oils add beneficial medicinal properties that are great for your hair/scalps overall health.
This balm is made with natural ingredients, will keep your hair hydrated, tame frizz, give your hair shine, promotes healthy hair growth, prevents hair loss, helps with thinning hair, and will help ease any skin irritations that may be present on your scalp.
I suffer from eczema and this hair & scalp balm soothes my scalp and keeps my scalp hydrated throughout the week. I love that this balm does not weigh down my hair or clog my scalps pores.
Our hair & scalp balm can be used on wet or dry hair. I like to use this balm on freshly washed hair and to add moisture to my hair throughout the week. This balm can be used on protective styles such as: twists, braids, locs, and updo's.

Kokum Butter is a decadent butter, that is hydrating, and non-greasy. This butter prevents dryness and is a great alternative for those that have sensitive skin. It also has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Kokum butter is non-pore clogging and is great for stimulating healthy hair growth.
Babassu oil is a great alternative to coconut oil. A few years ago, my skin began to respond to coconut oil negatively. My skin and hair would become extremely dry. I decided to start reseaching for oils that would mimic coconut oil. I came across Babassu oil and I haven't looked back. Babassu oil is rich in fatty acids and it melts gently into your skin. The fatty acids in this oil is great for hydrating your hair/scalp over a long period of time. This oil has great medicinal properties such as: anti-inflammatory, packed with Vitamin E, antioxidants, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and has high concentrations of lauric acids.
I am addicted to infusing oils and I am always trying to figure out ways to add them to my products. Rosemary infused oil stimulates hair growth, increases blood circulation, reduces dandruff, conditions your hair, is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. Nettle infused oil promotes healthy hair growth, helps scalp conditions like eczema and psoriasis, is anti-inflammatory, contains protein, Vitamin A, B, C, K, minerals, helps to make your hair shinier, strengthens your hair, is a great astringent that helps to cleanse the scalp of dandruff, and increases blood circulation. Horsetail infused oil contains silica (forms collagen) which is great for growing healthy, shiny, hair. It also promotes circulation which further helps your hair to grow. If you are having promblems with thinning hair or bald spots, this oil can help grow your hair fuller.
Argan oil is rich in vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants. This oil will make your hair softer, more manageable, and will increase your hair's elasticity. Due to the omega-6 fatty acids that are present in this oil, it is no wonder that it is idea for conditioning your hair, reducing inflammation of your scalp, and defining your curls.
Jamaican Black Castor oil treats dandruff, moisturizes your hair, promotes healthy hair growth, thickens your hair, is rich in fatty acids, and Vitamin E. Individuals who may be suffering from eczema and psoriasis can benefit from using this oil on their scalp. Due to the roasting process used to extract this oil, the ash content within the oil is very high. Ash exfoliates your skin, is ani-inflammatory, unclogs your pores, and has antiseptic properties. All of these things are beneficial for irritated, dry scalps.
Beeswax helps to seal in the moisture of your hair from your roots to your ends, makes your hair easy to manipulate, and and it helps the oils in this recipe keep your hair moisturized. I like using beeswax on my hair because it helps me to smooth out my hair as I am protective styling. Beeswax keeps my twists from unraveling and it creates a protective barrier for my ends.
Vitamin E oil helps with making frizzy hair manageable, shiny, and promotes hair growth. This oil is also great for your scalp. It helps reduce scalp stress that can be related to eczema, psoriasis, and hair loss. Gently massaging this oil into your scalp regularly helps to increase blood blow to your hair follicles.
Lemongrass essential oil is the holy grail when it comes to dandruff. It is known for it's ability to create a flake-free scalp. When applied to the scalp, it can help your hair stay clean and fresh. It also can prevent your hair from shedding if used regularly. Lemongrass oil is a great deodorizer that helps to prevent excessive perspiration. This makes it great for protective styles.
My hair balm has beads in it. What do I do?
Over time, your hair balm will develop small beads. This happens when the beeswax, butter, and oils began to separate. This does not effect the performance of the hair balm in any way. Once your fingertips come in contact with the hair balm, it will immediately start to melt. Then, you can apply the balm to your scalp and hair.
Reminder: I do not recommend using Lemongrass scented products for babies because their skin is so sensitive. Also, Lemongrass is a known skin irritant for babies. Store product in a cool dry place. Be sure not to get water in the product. We did not add preservatives to this product because we wanted to offer customers a product that had no additives.
