Product Suggestions

I recommend using 100% pure, virgin organic oils if you can find them. To receive the most benefit from these oils, leave the oil on for about 20-30 minutes, and be sure to cover your hair with a hot towel or shower cap to increase absorbtion. You can also apply them before bed and shampoo out in the morning.
