Want to Grow Your Hair
One of the common concerns surrounding hair care is hair growth. Many women and men ask, how can I make my hair grow? The answer to the question will probably not be what you think.
So, how can you make your hair grow? The answer is, you can't make it grow. We are born with a finite amount of hair follicles. Most experts say about 100,000. The DNA that makes up the composition of the follicles and hair cells is programmed to grow beginning in the womb. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, hair grows about 1/2 inch per month on average, for a whopping total of 6 inches per year. You have no control over it. What you do have control over is keeping it strong, healthy, and on your head.
What most people experience is hair breakage and hair loss. Proper moisture and good nutrition are essential to maintaining the length and the health of your hair. Unfortunately, most of the products on the market for curly hair don't provide the moisture that can be absorbed down to the hair follicle where hair grows. Mineral oil, drying alcohols, and water-based products do very little to help maintain healthy hair. They can cause clogging and suffocation of the scalp which causes dandruff, flaking, shedding, and ultimately hair loss.
At GreenSistah™Botanicals, we specialize in plant-based formulations that can be absorbed by the scalp down to the follicles. Ingredients like shea butter, amla fruit, argan oil, rosemary, sage, and coconut oils improve add moisture and strength. On the nutritional side, our "Tresses Tea" is a growth stimulator formulated with herbs used for centuries to improve the condition of all hair types.
Our hair formulations have been helping men and women achieve their hair goals since 1999. At GreenSistah™Botanicals every ingredient is procured for safety and efficacy.
