The Mielle Organics Mint Almond oil is a favourite and it is the second step in promoting healthy hair and growth by working on the last two phases of the growth cycle by soothing and re balancing the scalp by promoting circulation. Studies have showed that blood flow to the scalp plays an important role in hair growth. This natural oil promotes circulation with our peppermint oil. The almond oil is a protein in which our hair is made of protein so this oil binds to the hair sealing it and locking in moisture preventing breakage and shedding. This is a lightweight natural oil.
