Ancient herbal ingredients known for promoting healthy hair and natural hair growth have been used for centuries in Asia and other countries across the globe. Consider the benefits of the following plant extracts and essential oils for your own natural hair:
Aloe Vera is an excellent treatment for hair loss because the plant itself closely matches our own body’s biochemistry, containing many of the same vitamins and minerals that make up our own bodies. Without question, Aloe Vera promotes healthy hair growth. It strengthens, adds a healthy radiance and shine to hair.
Bhringraj leaf extract has been traditionally used externally on the hair (and scalp) to stop hair loss, promote luxuriant hair growth, stop graying of hair and improve hair color. It’s used as a hair tonic and hair conditioning agent. Bhringraj has also been used for preventing baldness, anti-dandruff, anti-lice and revitalizing the hair.
Almond oil has been used to promote thicker and longer hair growth all the way back to the ancient Egyptians. It strengthened the roots, thus strengthening growing hair; stopped hair loss; blocked dandruff; added radiant sheen and silky smoothness to the hair.
Wheat germ oil has emollient properties that add moisture and suppleness to hair. It helps eliminates excessive dryness. It contains vitamin E, a natural preservative that also adds moisture to hair. Additionally, it contains a B-vitamin complex: B1, B2, B3, and B6. These vitamins help increase circulation to the scalp and thicken hair.
Shikakai is known to stop hair loss and promote natural hair growth by nourishing the scalp at the glandular level. It also can strengthen hair roots. (This is good news for anybody transitioning from a chemical perm or relaxer to natural hair). It is rich in vitamin C and vitamin D, along with other nutrients that nourish the hair follicles and promote natural hair growth. It can be used by itself or mixed with other natural ingredients in powder form, along with water to form a paste that is then applied to the hair
Reetha Fruit (Soapnut) contains saponins which are a natural surfactant; used for washing for thousands of years by native peoples in Asia as well as Native Americans. Besides containing excellent cleansing properties, it is known to keep hair and skin soft
Amla Fruit is wonderful cleansing agent for both the skin and hair. It imparts luster to hair and protects from dandruff, also helps prevent premature graying. It stimulates growth of hair on the scalp, and strengthens the hair roots. Amla extract in the shampoo does not deposit any color on the hair and can be used by everyone alike. Amla extract helps replace the nourishment lost by hair gels, chemical hair color and hair spray.
Henna is also used as a natural hair conditioner and accentuates the natural highlights in the hair.

A Personal Note from the Author
I regularly use both Imbue™ Natural Shampoo and Imbue™ Natural Conditioner. I have thyroid and another glandular problem that can severely affect my hair growth from time to time. Imbue™ Natural Shampoo and Imbue™ Natural Conditioner is easily the best shampoo and conditioner that I’ve ever used. My hair loss has stopped; former thin spots have completely disappeared and it's growing! Personally, I highly recommend these natural hair products for healthy hair.
