  • Antioxidant, thanks to its vitamin E and will slow down the aging process
  • Restores vitality, radiance and power with damaged and fragile hair

  • No need to rinse, unless you have greasy hair!

To increase its nourishing and hydrating care, mix it with other oils : Linseed, Wheat germ, Jojoba

If you want to protect your beard and soothe it, use lavender oil orargan.
To take advantage of its anti regrowth effects to the maximum, use it daily or every other day for 1 to 2 months. You can then use it less often because you should see your hair grow less quickly.
