After this use a comb to gently massage your hair and scalp so that all the hair roots are nourished with the oil. Leave it for 30 – 40 minutes, shampoo off. Results? Well, see for yourself!

We can never hope for hair falls to stop completely because each hair will fall once its life span is over and that’s why hair falls are normal as long as they are replaced by a steady growth of new hair follicles. Jojoba oil does this crucial thing. It helps new hair follicles to grow. It clears up the blockage caused by excessive sebum build-up and facilitates growth. A boon for dull and lifeless hair as jojoba oil is an excellent frizz-fighter. The vitamins in the oil protects the scalp improving the overall health of the scalp.
