Excellent for adding slip and decreasing frizz!

I was hesitant to use a leave-in set angler because my hair is so fine and is often weighed-down by leave-in products and conditioners. I do rinse this product out just for a few seconds, and leave the rest in, but wow has it transformed my curls! I started using this, combined with the foam mousse, and just one or two pumps of the curl gel, and my curls have never looked better!!! Not planning to change a thing about this routine, which is really saying something because I swear I have to change my routine constantly because nothing seems to work. So I’m very happy with these products!

Superfruit hair oil

Love it. The smell is subtle and delicious. The combination of oils gives it a soft and easy consistency without greasiness. Only a little needed. I have 4c textured hair and my hair agrees with it. Thumbs up from me!!

Would you recommend it to a friend?: Yes
Fine gel

The gel smells amazing and defines my curls well, although for me it is probably better as refreshment bc the hold is not that strong for my curls.

Herbs for Natural Hair: 10 of the Best Herbs for Hair Growth

For thousands of years, herbs have been used to nourish the scalp and promote the growth of strong, healthy hair. Here we’ve outlined some of the best choices, why they work, and how to prepare them.

 Aloe Vera

Regular application of the Aloe Vera gel will help in maintaining the pH balance of the hair. It will also help in opening up the blocked pores of the scalp and boost the growth of hair follicles.

Lavender

Lavender is one of the well known herbs that will help in boosting hair growth and also reduce baldness. The oil of Lavandula augustifolia is a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-septic.  Lavender oil stimulates circulation in the scalp, strengthens new hair growth, and helps to balance the natural oil production of the scalp.  As an added bonus, lavender oil is also a natural insect repellant which can ward off disease-carrying parasites like fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and head lice.  

It is known to have antibacterial properties that will help in soothing as well as healing  irritations and infections on the scalp and is very effective in treating dandruff and dry and flaky scalp. With anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiseptic properties, Lavender can help to treat hair loss as it is an effective remedy for many scalp conditions. It also acts a natural insect repellent and can therefore protect the hair against fleas and head lice.

Regular use of lavender hair oil will help in preventing hair loss and will also help in hair re-growth.

Hibiscus

Hibiscus is packed full of antioxidants and vitamins that help to improve the overall health of the scalp and hair. It is also a very effective treatment for dandruff which can interfere with healthy hair growth.

Rose Petals

By adding Rose Petals to boiling water and making a rinse, they can be used to revitalise hair and promote new growth. They can also be used to condition the hair, giving it a healthy shine. Rose Petals have antiseptic properties and therefore be used to treat scalp irritations.

Ginseng

The popular Chinese herb is a natural herbal remedy for a lot of health problems including hair loss. Ginseng is very effective in treating baldness and will help in hair re-growth. It will help in nourishing the hair and also boost the strength of the hair. It is one of the main ingredients that you will find on most hair tonics or hair shampoos.

Green Tea

Green Tea is very popular natural herb as it has many health benefits. Containing antioxidants to prevent hair loss and panthenol which strengthens the hair, this herb is a very effective treatment for baldness and damaged hair.

Nettle

Nettle has a good reputation when it comes to remedying hair loss as it stimulates the scalp, improves blood circulation and protects against further damage and breakage. Nettle can be taken in the form of pills or can be ground to a paste and mixed with olive oil to make a rinse.

Rosemary

Rosemary has been used for hundreds of years to help aid in hair loss. It is great to use on thinning hair and balding. It best works for hair growth when it is used with olive oil. Combine rosemary oil mixed with a bit of olive oil and apply directly to the scalp. Not only does it promote hair growth, but also helps to prevent hair from going prematurely grey. It is excellent for giving hair follicles the nourishment they need.

Peppermint

Peppermint oil is also an age old herbal remedy to treat hair loss and to improve hair growth in humans. It will help in improving the growth of hair follicles and thereby promote hair growth.  It will help in improving the blood circulation of the scalp and also bind the hair roots onto the scalp.

Peppermint is an antifungal and anti-inflammatory herb that is known for combatting itchiness and inflammation. It is commonly used in the form of oil, which is diluted to the applied to the scalp and hair and is a known hair growth booster. It boosts the circulation of blood, maximizing the nourishment the follicles receive.

Moringa

Moringa contains thiocyanate which strengthens the hair follicles and prevents hair fall. It is used as a natural conditioner and promotes new hair growth. You can use moringa in its oil form by applying it directly to your hair or you can make a tea out of moringa powder and use this to rinse your hair.
