Grapeseed oils serve as excellent protection against heat damage because they have a good smoke point and have a high tolerance for elevated temperatures. Grapeseed oil has a smoke point of 485ºF, while flat ironing hair requires a temperature of about 300-400ºF.Grapeseed oil produced through the cold-press method prevents and treats hair loss by inhibiting DHT production. DHT is a hormone that induces hair loss. The oil contains antioxidants that prevent the creation of DHT. Grapeseed oil prevents hair loss caused by cortisol when it acts as base oil. Cortisol is a stress-induced hormone that interferes with optimal hair growth. Grape seed oil cures dermatitis and dandruff caused by dry, flaky scalp.

Hemp seed oil typically doesn’t contain the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which provides the high associated with marijuana use.(Hair) Hempseed oil can play a role in protecting hair from damage by: preventing too much water from being absorbed by hair, helping to prevent the penetration of certain substances into hair follicles, prevent hair breakage by enhancing lubrication of the shaft and prevent hair breakage by reducing the combing force of wet hair. (skin) Hemp oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturize without clogging your pores. It can even help to balance out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production. One of the omega-6 fatty acids that hemp oil contains is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while simultaneously encouraging skin growth and new cell generation. This can help to calm inflammation and irritation on the skin, including acne and some conditions like psoriasis, while keeping the skin nourished and moisturized.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology in 2012, daily administration of a proprietary nutritional supplement containing silica derived from horsetail significantly increased hair growth after 90 and 180 days. The subjects of the study were women between the ages of 21 to 75 years old with self-perceived thinning hair. Further research published by the Brazilian Society of Dermatology also suggests that hair strands with higher silicon content tend to have a lower fall-out rate as well as greater brightness. According to some beauty experts, horsetail is one of the best sources of silica on Earth, and it provides our hair with luster and our skin with softness. You can take a horsetail tincture or horsetail tea internally for hair health.

Jamaican black castor oil abounds in Ricin oleic Acid and may be effective in treating skin inflammations such as dermatitis, eczema, chapped lips, acne, and blackheads. The researchers confirm that castor oil is not a major skin irritant.
(Hair/Skin) *Jojoba oil-Jojoba oil is a rich source of oleic acid, eicosanoid acid, and erucic acid, as well as lower levels of stearic, palmitic, nervonic, and palmitoleic acids, all of which have their own antioxidant, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory effects on the body. And it does not contain any medium-chain fatty acids. (Hair) Jojoba oil can help prevent hair loss caused by blocked hair follicles, by eliminating the oils clogging those follicles, and ensuring normal hair growth. It can also help to regulate sebum levels in the follicles. The moisturizing, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of jojoba oil mean that it can prevent the dry, flaking and irritated skin that leads to dandruff. Not only is this condition unsightly, but also difficult to eliminate. Adding a few teaspoons of jojoba oil to your shampoo and massaging it thoroughly into your scalp can keep dandruff at bay.(Skin) The skin is the body’s largest organ and is constantly exposed to the harsh environment, irritants, pollutants and, pathogens, which means that it often gets inflamed, both from outside and inside. Jojoba oil can be applied to the irritated, swollen, itchy or inflamed skin, and can quickly soothe those cells, thanks to the emollient qualities of this oil’s active ingredients. It can also be used as a body oil. For wounds, scrapes, cuts, and scratches, applying this oil (typically diluted) can help speed up the healing process, while also protecting against infection. The antioxidants found in this oil, including vitamin E, can stimulate blood flow to these areas and speed production of healthy new cells.
(skin) *Lanolin- Lanolin oil is a secretion from sheep’s skin. It’s similar to human sebum, an oil secreted by the sebaceous glands that you may notice particularly on your nose.
Unlike sebum, lanolin contains no triglycerides. Lanolin is sometimes referred to as “wool fat,” but the term is misleading because it lacks triglycerides needed to be considered a fat. The purpose of lanolin is to condition and protect sheep’s wool. This conditioning property is why the substance is now widely used in human cosmetics, skin care, and hair products. Lanolin oil is known as an emollient, which means it helps soothe dry or dehydrated skin. A 2017 study indicated that lanolin can reduce water lost through the skin by 20 to 30 percent. Simply put, lanolin is extremely hydrating and can soften skin to help improve the appearance and the feel of rough, dry, or flaky areas.

Other purported benefits of honey include: helping heal cuts and scrapes, clearing infections, easing stomach aches, improving digestion, boosting the immune system, providing energy.
(skin) *Oat straw powder- Oat straw is rich in silica and calcium - two minerals which are active stimulators of growth, especially of bones, hair, and nails. Silica naturally encourages longer, stronger nails. As for hair, oat straw is especially beneficial in cases where hair loss and thinning are linked to chronic stress and anxiety. By relieving the body of stress and anxiety, oat straw can indirectly prevent hair loss. Another key component of oat straw that is helpful in the growth of hair, nails and skin is its macronutrient content. Their role may seem insignificant, but failure to consume sufficient macronutrients can lead to nutrient deficiencies affecting skin and hair.
(Skin/Hair) *Olive oil-(Skin)Our skin responds well to diets rich in healthy fat sources such as olive oil. Such diets protect the skin from ultraviolent light damage from the sun, toxic substances, and food allergies. The properties found in antioxidants and vitamin E fight infections and hormone imbalances, hydrates skin cells, and promotes healing. The properties of olive oil do not clog your pores as many moisturizers you find on store shelves may. Penetrating deep within your skin’s layers, the oil provides protection from free radicals while cleansing the skin cells. The combination of vitamin A and vitamin E in olive oil repairs cells from harmful environmental factors. (Hair) Incorporating olive oil into your haircare regimen can seal moisture into the hair fiber, which helps with elasticity and results in less breakage. Additionally, hair oils can penetrate your hair strand and reduce the amount of water your hair absorbs—which, in turn, cuts down on shrinkage and frizz.
(add) *Polysorbate 20-Polysorbate 20 is used in cosmetics and skin care products as a surfactant, emulsifier, and fragrance ingredient. It is derived from fruits and berries as well, leading to its fragrant properties. It is used as a to mix water with oil.

Your immune system requires more than just vitamins and minerals to be effectively supported. One of the other amazing benefits of sea moss is what it brings to help do this. Sea moss possesses properties including it being: Antiviral, Antibacterial, Antimicrobial, Anti-inflammatory, Anticoagulant, and Probiotic.
(Hair/Skin) *Shea Butter -Shea butter has many potential benefits for hair and skin including moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging effects. Shea butter is rich in vitamins, minerals and other natural properties and that is why I decided to use it as the base of my all-natural mixture. Its main components include linoleic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid along with many others. These are easily and quickly absorbed into our skin because of our body’s warm temperature. (Hair)Since Shea butter is rich in Vitamin A and E it can repair damaged and split ends as well. It adds moisture to dry, brittle, dull, lifeless hair. It hydrates, softens, conditions and overall beautifies our hair. Shea butter adds all of these awesome benefits to our hair, without leaving it greasy and heavy (based on the amount you use). Shea butter restores moisture to hair that has been damaged from chemical hair treatments, blow dryers, straighteners and other hair tools that cause damage to your hair.(Skin) Due to Shea butter’s nutrient dense components (including several kinds of fatty acids) it has a vast amount of healing properties for skin and hair. It is very effective at healing and curing conditions that directly affect the scalp, such as: Burns, Dermatitis, Dry Skin, Eczema, Hair Conditioner, Hair & Skin Moisturizer, Insect bites/ stings. Itchy Skin, Scars and Sores, Skin Allergies & Rashes, and Skin Cracks.
(Body) *Vitamin C-Vitamin C which is also known as ascorbic acid, is a vitamin your body needs to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle and collagen in bones. Vitamin C is also vital to your body's healing process. An antioxidant, vitamin C might help protect your cells against the effects of free radicals — molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation. Free radicals might play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb and store iron. Because your body doesn't produce vitamin C, you need to get it from your diet. Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits, berries, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and spinach. Vitamin C is also available as an oral supplement, typically in the form of capsules and chewable tablets. People with gastrointestinal conditions and some types of cancer might be susceptible to vitamin C deficiency. Vitamin C is also used to increase iron absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. Severe vitamin C deficiency can lead to a disease characterized by anemia, bleeding gums, bruising and poor wound healing (scurvy). If you take vitamin C for its antioxidant properties, keep in mind that the supplement might not offer the same benefits as naturally occurring antioxidants in food. The recommended daily amount of vitamin C for adult men is 90 milligrams and for adult women is 75 milligrams.
(Hair/Skin) *Vitamin E-(Hair)Most of the claims about vitamin E’s role in hair health relate to its antioxidant properties. These focus on the idea that it can reduce cell damage and improve hair growth. A small research study using a total of 38 volunteers experiencing hair loss examined the role that vitamin E played in preventing this loss. The study found that one of the components of vitamin E did improve the hair growth of the volunteers compared with a placebo. Vitamin E can help replenish shine that the hair loses as a result of damage. Chemicals, heat, and other styling products can all damage the hair.(skin) Vitamin E fights off free radicals on the skin, which are a result of daily environmental stressors like unprotected sun exposure and air pollution. In fighting off free radicals, vitamin E helps protect the skin from damage. Additionally, vitamin E has "moisturizing and healing" benefits, and helps to "strengthen skin barrier function," King says. Basically, it's an all-around "workhorse of a vitamin," as Shamban calls it. "Vitamin E is also a natural anti-inflammatory, so it can be soothing and help calm the skin," she says. "It's also good for hydrating skin and serves as a moderately effective natural barrier to the sun."
