What is Horsetail Herb? What are the benefits of Horsetail for hair health? Why is Silica good for hair?
Horsetail is a plant that has been used in medical and cosmetic remedies for centuries such as teas and hair growth oils. It is extremely rich in silica (one of the highest concentrations of silica in the plant kingdom) which is what our bodies use to create collagen internally and topically. Collagen builds the proteins in our hair which result in thicker, stronger locs, twists and braids. A lot of the best hair oils in the market contain horsetail extract.
All of these hair growth oils for locs, braids and twists are infused with organic horsetail herbs. Horsetail oil, when applied to the scalp, is great for improving the speed of hair growth, helps to thicken sparse hair, reduces dandruff, improves circulation and strengthens your strands to encourage length retention due to the reducing of breakage. It has also been known to slow down the natural graying process of hair and repairs damaged hair.
What does it mean to Infuse products with herbs?
Infusion is the process of soaking herbs in oils to combine the benefits of the herbs into the oils to apply topically in the case of hair products. The oils in this collection are healthy on their own and beneficial for our braids, locs and twists, however, these oils combined with hair healthy herbs, are exponentially more beneficial for hair growth, strengthening, thickening, length retention and more. Infused organic products are the best hair oils for locs, twists & braids. The Love, Light & Locs Horsetail Leaf Growth Oil includes a highly concentrated horsetail infusion which makes it very beneficial when applied to the scalp and the hair strands.
