Tea tree oil cleans residue off your scalp, including dandruff, to give your hair the freedom to grow long and healthy more quickly.

Avocado Oil

Castor Oil 
A spoonful of castor oil may have been a hard pill to swallow in your childhood, but you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that it helps make your hair grow!

Rosemary Oil
Helps hair to grow, strengthens the hair and gives it a beautiful shine.

Safflower Oil

Argan Oil
If you're having problems with hair breakage and heat damage, Argan oil is also great for natural black hair. It also gives your hair shine, boosts elasticity, seals in moisture and promotes growth.

** When making their own homemade products, some naturalistas also like to add a drop or two of essential oils (like lavender, rosemary, and peppermint) to their mixture to make it more fragrant. Keep in mind that essential oils need to be diluted properly to avoid skin irritation.

Happy mixing!
