Alfalfa - Very rich in vitamins and minerals – good source of zinc, which is vital to healthy hair and scalp. Adds silica to the hair, helping prevent hair loss.
Aloe Vera Juice - Studies show that Aloe Vera promotes the production of enzymes on your scalp, causing cellular rejuvenation, provides the building blocks for hair proteins. and as an anti-inflammatory, protect against damage to the scalp and hair. Composed of 96% water, aloe vera is very moisturizing. Using a good sealing oil is recommended to hold in its moisture.
Amla Fruit - Also know as Indian Gooseberry, an antioxidant and astringent; stimulates scalp blood flow, prevents scalp infection, hair loss, premature graying, and adds shine; great when used as a moisture seal to retain moisture, keeping strands flexible and resistant to breakage.
Apple - The outer layer of the hair strand, the cuticle, covers the hair shaft and protects it like the bark on a tree. When the cuticle lies flat, your hair has a smooth feel and appearance, and light is able to reflect off of your hair strands, causing it be shiny. During shampooing, the cuticle opens, allowing water and nourishing herbs into the shaft, and proteins to bind to it. However, when the cuticle layers are open, the hair will feel rough, coarse and brittle, and will leave the shaft (the core of each strand’s strength and flexibility) unprotected. The hair will absorb the light rather than reflect it, which gives the appearance of dull and lifeless hair. Due to its lower pH, apple cider vinegar removes build-up and residue from the shaft and closes the cuticles. Closing the cuticles will cause your strands to have fewer tangles and more ‘slip’.

Avocado Oil - The healthy fats in avocado cause it to be more penetrating than almond, olive, safflower, and soy oils. Avocado strengthens and fortifies hair, taking it from brittle, to soft and shiny.
