The 5 best natural ingredients to tame dry, frizzy hair
We have shared many "hacks" using our products over the years. Before we had lip products, Rebecca would apply our body cream to her chapped lips. Before we came out with facial care products, I used our fragrance free hand cream on dry patches. I use fragrance free body oil on my eye lashes to keep them shiny and as a cuticle oil, too.
Can Seed products be used on the hair? Yes, absolutely!
Our friend, Tori, uses our Soft Balm on her hair and Susan, one of our valued customers, shares this about our Body Oil:
"You should really include in your summary that this wonderful product is also amazingly healing for dry, brittle and frizzy hair! It has made a remarkable difference where no other product has. Thank you for commitment for excellence!"
Let's take a look at why people keep sharing their love of Seed for helping improve the look and condition of their hair.
5 Natural Ingredients Your Hair Will Love
Argan Oil - Argan Oil is one of the best natural hair care ingredients you can use. Rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, this protective oil can help shield against UV damage, making it a lovely oil for color-treated hair prone to fading. Argan Oil helps to increase hair elasticity, adds shine, and helps to reduce the appearance of frizz in the hair.
Abyssinian Seed Oil - Ultra light and non-greasy, Abyssinian Oil offers many benefits when it comes to your hair. In fact, it is one of the most recommended natural ingredients to replace the use of silicones to help smooth and de-frizz hair without weighing it down. This rejuvenating oil moisturizes strands deep into the hair follicles and is ideal for all hair types, whether fine, coarse or somewhere in between
Jojoba Oil - Not actually an oil, but a wax ester, Jojoba Oil is often used in hair care products as a dandruff treatment. It nourishes and strengthens the hair, helps to lock in moisture, and is believed to help promote hair growth.
Sunflower Seed Oil - If your hair is fragile and prone to breakage, Sunflower Seed Oil, is another ingredient your locks may benefit from. With an abundance of Omega 9, dermatologist Adriano Almeida says that sunflower "has as its main representative oleic acid, which has hydration power," making it a wise choice for dryness.
Apricot Kernel Oil - If your hair craves hydration and balance, the linoleic acid found in Apricot Kernel will help maintain the hydration barrier found between your scalp and hair strands.
Insider Tips & Tricks
- Spritz a couple of drops of our body oil into your hands and gently rub together and apply over damp hair to protect strands before blow drying.
- Do you have flyaways that need a bit of taming? Use our balm or oil to lightly apply over dry hair to help avoid flyaways.
- Always use less than product in your hair than you think you need. You can always add more.
- As part of your bedtime routine, apply a pea sized amount of balm to fingertips and rub into hands, then lightly apply to dry ends to help keep them protected.
- You can also apply oil or balm to the hair to help protect against dry ends when you swim regularly.
- My 15 year old uses a bit of our balm in his hair instead of wax or gel.

Argan oil is one of the most promising -- and most proven -- ingredients in skin care. While it is not a new ingredient, it is an important one which has stood the test of time.
Today we're sharing 5 key benefits of this oil. Although it is not as well known as coconut oil or jojoba oil, argan is truly a special oil.
Argan oil, found in both Seed Soft Balm and Seed Advanced Botanicals Extra Moisturizing Face Cream, contains more antioxidant and cell regenerative properties than olive oil, grape seed oil and avocado oil combined.
We're going to spotlight the special ingredients used in this serum so you can learn why each one was chosen to be used in our formulation.
This week's Ingredient Spotlight is on Kakadu Plum.
What is Kakadu Plum Extract?

While it is hard to fine, Kakadu Plum has been creating quite a buzz lately in the skin care industry because of its many benefits. It is safe to say that using Kakadu Plum is not just a passing fad. You'll be seeing a lot more of this ingredient as more and more solid research comes out.
This is a common question people have when seeking out a new facial moisturizer, especially those who have oily or combination skin. Back before people became more ingredients savvy, they heeded the advice "If you have oily skin, you have to choose oil-free products."
The truth, however, is that "oil-free" is
