Nettle and rosemary: stimulating effect from nature
Rosemary essential oil has been known for centuries as a natural remedy for beautiful and healthy hair. It has a stimulating effect on the hair roots and prevents hair loss and dandruff. Thanks to the high content of polyphenols, especially a natural ester of caffeinic acid, it stimulates the blood flow in the scalp and increases the absorption of nutrients.
Although rosemary essential oil is found in many hair care products, its healing properties are often reduced by combining it with irritating artificial surfactants.
In our shampoo bar it is only combined with saponified vegetable oils, which wash hair and scalp particularly well and care for them at the same time. The strengthening action of rosemary is strengthened thanks to the addition of dry nettle leaves. Nettle revitalizes the hair and gives it a healthy and shiny appearance. Our shampoo has a pleasant scent of fresh herbs. All senses are gently awakened during the shampoo and after the shower every man will experience a deep feeling of peace.
"We are always looking for the best natural ingredients that can be added to our shampoo bars. Rosemary and nettle are two precious natural ingredients that give hair new strength".
Why does our shampoo bar help against hair loss?
As a men's shampoo, our shampoo bars represent a natural solution against hair loss. Firstly, they contain no harmful substances normally used in liquid shampoos. Preservatives, silicones, parabens, thickeners form a layer on the scalp and do not allow the hair root to breathe properly. Although hair loss can be caused by various factors, including genetic, stress or dietary factors, care products can have a negative effect on already weakened hair.
As a local remedy, you can prepare various natural preparations yourself from herbal cosmetics. Nettle leaves and rosemary are among the effective remedies for the care of scalp and hair and are added to our shampoo bar.
In addition, both ingredients can be used for the production of tinctures and head water. The use of natural remedies is intended to increase the stimulating effect of our shampoo bar. A prerequisite for the effect of natural remedies is that silicones are not used, as they cannot penetrate through the artificial layer and reach the hair root.
Stinging Nettle Hair Lotion: Natural stimulation of hair roots
Many natural remedies can be produced from nettle leaves, such as head water. As a first step you should either prepare the nettle tincture yourself or simply buy it in a pharmacy. To make the tincture yourself, you need only 3 g of fresh plucked nettle leaves and 100 g of "70% alcohol".
The nettle leaves are first placed in a dark pharmacy glass and then poured with the alcohol. The small bottle is then closed and left to rest in a warm place for about 4 weeks. After this time only the tincture should be strained and it is ready for use. The nettle tincture is then mixed with water for the production of nettle hair water.
As an alternative one can use Hamamelis water, which has a healing effect on the irritated scalp. The nettle head water consists of a mixture of approx. 4 parts nettle tincture and 6 parts water. After using the shampoo bar, the head water can be massaged directly into the scalp to stimulate the blood circulation of the hair root.
OUR VEGETABLE OILS:
Coconut oil: Rich in saturated fatty acids, it thoroughly nourishes and regenerates the hair. In our shampoo bar coconut oil is responsible for the cleansing effect and the production of the rich creamy foam.
Olive oil: higher content of antioxidants and cornerstone of the "Mediterranean diet". The olive oil penetrates very slowly into the skin and has an antibacterial and healing effect on the scalp.
Castor oil: The only important source of ricinoleic acid makes the hair very soft and shatterproof. In combination with coconut oil it contributes to the creation of the pleasant foam of our shampoo bar.
Sunflower oil: It provides the hair with many different unsaturated fatty acids, such as linoleic acid and vitamins of groups A, D and E. Sunflower oil gives the hair a vital and healthy appearance.
Cocoa butter: is considerably nourishing for scalp and hair. Thanks to its theobromine and polyphenol content, it has an important antioxidant effect and at the same time it easily stimulates the hair root.
Shea butter: a true concentrate of nutrients and vitamins. In our shampoo bar it is present in generous quantities. Shea butter is excellent against dry hair and heals the irritated scalp.
