Decreases Inflammation

Many common conditions may cause scalp inflammation such as:

  • Dandruff or dry scalp 

  • Overgrowth of yeast or too much sebum

  • Seasonal changes

  • Hormonal changes

  • Overuse of chemicals like relaxers or medicated shampoos

Left untreated, inflammation can lead to scalp irritation, hair loss, thinning hair, and ultimately unhealthy hair.

Using products infused with apricot oil reduces inflammation and soothes the itchy feeling you may be experiencing as a result of the many possible causes of the scalp problem.

Improves Scalp Health

Overall scalp health is important for hair growth and to keep hair healthy. A healthy scalp means that skin sloughs off in a natural way which prevents clogged hair follicles and dandruff from occurring.

Formulas with Apricot oil naturally contains an fatty acids to help soften the scalp and make it more pliable, which allows for skin cells to regenerate in a natural cycle.

Supports Hair Growth

If you have a hair type that tends to grow slowly or have always struggled to grow hair, nourishing products with apricot oil may be beneficial to use to protect hair as it grows to maintain healthy locks from root to tip.

Seals in Moisture

Some hair types are more prone to losing moisture, so having oils in your hair products can help keep your hair stay moisturized.
