Twist, cornrows, and box braids are all protective styles that expose our scalp to the elements. It's very important to moisturize and care for the scalp to prevent dandruff and clogged pores which could interfere with healthy hair growth.
TGINs Tea Tree + Olive Oil Detoxifying Hair & Scalp Serum is a product that I stumbled across in the store. I initially was attracted to the applicator bottle which makes oil application easy. I also love how this product has only FOUR ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, peach kernel, and tea tree oil. Oil blends are my favorite because each ingredient contributes to an overall great result.
Tea Tree Oil🌱 - has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help with an itchy and dry scalp.
Olive Oil🌿 - contains oleic & linoleic acid that promotes moisture retention in the hair & scalp
Coconut Oil 🥥- easily absorbs into the hair & scalp to help moisturize
Peach Kernel Oil🍑 - non-greasy, moisturizing oil
To moisturize/hydrate my twist, I lightly spray my hair with water or a leave-in conditioner, apply a hair lotion ( Palmers Coconut Oil Hair Milk Smoothie), then follow up with oil. Since this product is a lightweight oil/serum, I occasionally double up with a heavier castor oil so I'm good to go for the next 3 days! After each application normally follows up with a scalp massage to increase blood circulation.
This product is perfect for maintaining a healthy scalp and ensuring proper nourishment for new growth!
