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.

Do you still use shaving cream from the drugstore?
Take a look at the back of the canister when you use it next time. Chances are, Triethanolamine and Propane are near the top of the ingredients listing.
- Triethanolamine is an emulsifier and pH adjuster; can be especially hazardous when combined with Diazolidinyl Urea. Studies have shown that a large number of cosmetics with TEA (short for Triethanolamine) are contaminated with Nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic. (source)
- Propane, a hydrocarbon, is a propellant. It helps give the product its mousse-like fluffy foam. It is extremely sensitizing to the lungs in moderate doses. It can be highly irritating to the skin, nasal passages and mucus membranes. More than 6,500 studies have been conducted on propane. It is a skin, lung, and eye irritant. (source)
