INGREDIENTS AND THEIR FUNCTIONS IN CONSCIOUS ESSENCE OIL BLEND:
OLIVE OIL, CASTOR OIL, AVOCADO OIL, JOJOBA OIL, ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND OF TEA TREE, PEPPERMINT, ROSEMARY, LAVENDER, CEDAR WOOD, GINGER, FLOWER OF SULFUR.
OLIVE OIL is loaded with antioxidants. It has the property to fight off fungi and bacteria, as well as prevent DTH hormone production. (Overproduction of DTH can shrink the hair follicle shaft, and cause hair loss.) It is rich in vitamin E and has anti-inflammatory properties which help to prevent dandruff. Olive oil is also one of the few oils that can penetrate the hair.
CASTOR OIL has germicidal, fungicidal, and anti-inflammatory properties, which treat dandruff and soothe inflamed skin. It increases circulation of the scalp, resulting in an improved flow of nutrients to your hair. Castor oil has a small molecule size and can penetrate deeply and easily into your scalp. It thickens the hair as well as promotes hair growth.
AVOCADO OIL has really high monounsaturated fatty acid content (greater than that of olive oil), which is responsible for protecting the hair from damage, and moisturizes, strengthens, and nourishes hair strands. It UNCLOGS blocked hair follicles and is loaded with antioxidants. It increases circulation and blood flow to hair follicles which stimulates the growth of healthy, nourished hair. It’s also a very light and absorbent oil and will not weigh down the hair.
JOJOBA OIL’s molecular structure is very similar to sebum, the oil that our scalp produces naturally, which is not evenly distributed to hair that is naturally kinky. It is one of the most nutrient-rich and expensive oils around. It restores the scalp’s natural balance, soothes, and helps treat dry scalp, and dandruff, as well as strengthens and hydrates the hair from the inside out.
ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND:
PEPPERMINT – stimulates circulation and blood flow to the scalp, which helps to deliver nutrients and minerals to the hair follicles.
TEA TREE – has fungus fighting properties which work great to heal dry, itchy and flaky scalp, dandruff, and lice.
ROSEMARY – treats dandruff, and helps to grow hair. PLEASE NOTE: ROSEMARY SHOULD NOT BE USED BY ANYONE WITH HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE OR PREGNANT WOMEN.
LAVENDER – treats itchy scalp and dandruff. Helps balance hair’s natural oil. It soothes the scalp and promotes hair growth.
CEDARWOOD – normalizes dry and oily scalp. Has an antiseptic and astringent property that prevents dandruff. It stimulates the scalp and hair follicles, as well as promotes hair growth.
CLARY SAGE – helps to prevent dandruff, balances sebum production, and reduces inflammation and rashes. PLEASE NOTE: CLARY SAGE IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE WHILE
GINGER – has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, and controls dandruff. It also increases circulation which results in stimulated hair follicles that encourage growth and make hair stronger.
FLOWER OF SULFUR – is a naturally occurring substance obtained from volcanic brimstone deposits. When you look at the deposits under a microscope, the change represents a flower, thus the name. Flower of sulfur is anti-fungal and antiseptic. It not only kills bacteria and fungi living on the skin, but it also kills lice and mites living on the scalp. It fights skin infection and relieves dry, itchy scalp and skin. Sulfur increases circulation and decreases inflammation, the perfect combination to promote healthy hair growth.
– Sulfur does not dissolve in oil. You will need to shake the bottle before each use.
– Always do a patch test when using sulfur products for the first time.
– Stop using this product a week before and a week after relaxing your hair.
-If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, we do not recommend you use our oil blend, with or without sulfur. Do let us know if you are pregnant and want to order so that we can create a custom blend for you, WITHOUT SULFUR, CLARY SAGE, and ROSEMARY.
-WE DO NOT recommend that you use this oil as a hot oil treatment for your scalp. Essential oils will lose some of their medicinal properties when heated. This is because they are volatile, so they will evaporate easily, and a lot of chemicals will denature in the increased heat. Also, bear in mind that some oils, when heated, not only lose their medicinal properties, but they can become toxic. This is true not only for our blend, but almost all oils containing essential oils.
Before starting, be sure to measure your hair in one spot. We recommend that you take a before picture the first time you use this product. The bottle will last about 1 month to 6 weeks, and that is ample time for you to see if it is lengthening your existing hair faster than your average growth. You DO NOT need to use this product every day. I highly recommend that you use it about every other day or three times a week. And it’s also powerful enough that you only need to use a little bit – that’s how potent the ingredients are. I also DO NOT recommend that you purchase more than three bottles at a time, to ensure that you have the most potent product at the time of usage.
Directions: Shake well before each use, as sulfur settles on the bottom. Take about a tablespoon of the oil and place it on a plate, or any container where you can easily dip your hands into. Part hair and apply the oil with fingertip pads, working the oil into the entire scalp. Cover hair with a plastic cap for about 30 minutes for better absorption. Rinse out not necessary. Style as usual.
If using as an overnight prewash treatment, follow the directions above but leave plastic cap on overnight.
Precaution: Please do a patch test for 24 hours before using this product for the first time. Do not apply to your scalp if you have irritated or broken skin. If sensitivity occurs, stop using immediately and consult your doctor if necessary. Also, this product contains essential oils and sulfur, so be mindful of your eyes.
