Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is an essential nutrient that is well known for its ability to support strong, vibrant skin (scalp) and hair [1-4].
The topical application of caffeine has been shown to improve barrier function and follicular penetration as well as stimulate new hair growth .
Rosemary oil and caffeine target a substance that is associated with hair loss known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) [7, 8].
Coconut oil naturally moisturizes hair [9-11].
Castor oil moisturizes hair and gives it more sheen and luster .
Olive oil and rosemary oil have antimicrobial activity that helps promote the health of the hair [14, 15].
Promotes hair growth [1-5]; Restores hair strength [1-5]; Lesses thinning hair [4, 5]; Targets scalp irritation [4, 5]
Biotin boosts metabolism and functions as a co-enzyme that enhances the breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates, fats (fatty acids) and other nutrients that nourish the hair [1-5]. Fatty acids in particular, strengthen the protective outer layer of the body's cells, including those that make up hair follicles . Therefore, biotin promotes healthy hair growth by ensuring that vital nutrients are released from food and properly transported throughout the body (e.g. scalp and hair follicles).
A hormonal imbalance may cause certain enzymes such as 5-alpha-reductase may begin to convert testosterone in both men and women into a stronger substance called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Increased DHT levels leads to the accumulation of a thick, dandruff-like substance called sebum. Sebum can clog the roots of the scalp, which can subsequently disrupt nutrient transport to the scalp and hair follicles, hair loss. Rosemary oil and caffeine block DHT activity, thereby preventing the buildup of sebum and hair loss [7, 8]. The topical application of caffeine also supports new hair growth by inhibiting phosphodiesterase .
Coconut oil supports moisture retention on dry, irritated skin (e.g., scalp) and it helps targets skin inflammation [9-11].
Castor oil improves luster by changing the contrast between diffuse and specular reflection of the hair . Castor oil is also rich in ricinoleic acid, which is a type of fatty acid that may help target scalp inflammation .
Olive oil and rosemary oil help target bacteria and fungi that can harm the hair .

Apply 2-3 drops of oil and gently massage into scalp and hair. For daily use. This oil can be used on damp or dry hair, and on the scalp, and/or the hair. It is highly recommended to start with a smaller amount of oil because a little goes a long way. Place several drops into the palm and rub your hands together before massaging the oil into the hair. Spread the oil as thoroughly as possible. Comb through the hair well.
Leave on overnight or for a minimum of 30 minutes before washing hair. Mix a few drops of oil with every application of shampoo and conditioner.
(for African hair types): Massage desired amount of oil into the scalp gently with fingers. Next, divide hair into four sections and apply desired amount of oil to each quarter section of hair from root to tips for maximum shine and thickness. Continue to comb or brush the oil into the hair.
For maximum results, use as a weekly leave-in oil treatment for several hours or overnight. To use the oil as a deep conditioning treatment, steam hair with a hot towel while oil is in hair to deeply strengthen and soften hair. Leave the wrapped towel around the hair for a minimum of 10 minutes. Once the oil is absorbed well, it can be washed off more easily. Depending on the hair quality, the oil can be left on or washed off with shampoo.
