It stimulates hair growth and is a natural conditioner. It is excellent for sun damaged hair and use before swimming to protect hair from chlorine or sea water.
It has a softening and balancing action on sebum production and is recommended for the treatment of split ends. This balancing effect on sebum and it's moisturising effects make it beneficial for mature, dry and oily skin types.
It is useful in treating hair loss because of it's calming properties. Hair loss can be caused by stress- Telogen Effluvium. This causes the hair to go into a resting state and the hair root to fall out. Once stress is reduced or eliminated, the hair grows back.
