Hair like our skin is a visible reminder of our inner state of health. Using heated appliances, harsh chemicals and an unhealthy lifestyle can result in dry, lacklustre hair and unbalanced scalps.

Regular hair oiling and scalp massage are excellent techniques to keep the hair and scalp  nourished and balanced. This ancient practice also effectively reduces stress, strengthens hair roots and encourages hair growth.

The main benefits of hair oiling and scalp massage

Stimulates hair growth by increasing circulation in the scalp.

Reduces stress, an excellent, totally natural way of inducing a sense of deep relaxation.

Natural deep conditioning for dry, unmanageable hair.

Balances dry/oily scalps by regulating sebum production.

Detoxifies the scalp by loosening dead skin cells.

Macadamia nut oil....(preferably cold pressed and organic) an excellent  conditioner for dry/damaged hair, restores vital moisture by penetrating the hair shaft.

Argan oil....(preferably cold pressed and organic) a brilliant source of vitamin e and essential fatty acids, highly beneficial for dry/flaky scalps and brittle hair.

Indian Gooseberry extract....Used in the Indian subcontinent for thousands of years for encouraging beautiful hair and skin. Contains more vitamin C than any other source. Brings shine and lustre to dull and polluted hair by removing chemical build up from the hair and scalp.

Foods that encourage beautiful hair


Walnuts.....  according to traditional chinese medicine, the hair is a reflection of the kidneys, the stronger the kidneys are the healthier and stronger the hair is. Walnuts are considered a kidney strengthening food by chinese herbal docors.

Gou zi berries...... Again a kidney strengthening food according to chinese herbalists. This is considered a super food by nutritional experts.

Indian gooseberry......Used by people in the Indian subcontinent for thousands of years for encouraging beautiful hair and skin, contains exceptionally high amounts of antioxidants and vitamin C.

Lean protein, hair mostly consists of a protein called Keratin so a balanced diet that includes healthy protein sources is vital for good hair.

And of course the boring things every one knows about, like getting enough exercise, drinking plenty of water and reducing stress levels. 


Never use a product based on mineral oil for massaging the scalp. This can  do more harm than good as mineral oil is a synthetic by product of the petrol industry with no nutritional value and can also block the pores of the scalp.
