2. Argan Oil
Often called “Moroccan Oil”, this perfect companion for human hair is made from the fruit of argania spinosa – argan trees – found in northwestern Africa. It’s loaded with vitamins E and A, and penetrates the hair shaft easily, sealing the hair from further damage.
3. Coconut Oil
Coconut is another easily absorbed, nutrient and fatty acid containing super oil for hair and skin, and it has been proven to help reduce protein loss in hair. It is easily found in grocery stores or drugstores, and can be used as a daily pre or post-wash hair treatment.
4. Banana & Flax Oil
Bananas have been used as a way of treating dry, itchy, flaky scalp for ages. Flax is a perfect source of omega-3 fatty acids that promote hair growth whether used as a mask or taken internally (see your doctor about taking flax capsules). For an easy mask, combine one banana with 2 tsp of flax oil, and blend until smooth and creamy. Apply to hair and leave for 2-4 hours. Wash out gently with a sulphite-free shampoo and warm water.
